Eating Disorder Counselor

Melissa Brentlinger, MA, LPC, LMFT

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of McAllen

I understand eating disorders from the inside out. I struggled with Bulimia during and a few years after my college years. It is very difficult to get off of this emotional roller coaster by yourself. Self-understanding and acceptance are key ingredients to be able to obtain peace and to let this disorder go. Eating disorders such as Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder (commonly called Compulsive Overeating) include extreme emotions and attitudes surrounding body image, weight and food issues. I help my eating-disordered clients find their long lost inner peace so that their frantic efforts aren't necessary anymore.
