People are often beleaguered by their ongoing failures to overcome an eating disorder, yet a Solution Focused approach to addressing and healing from such a painful condition can give a people feelings of competence and power or control. When highly valued tasks are accomplished, then, over time, they can develop a more positive level of self-esteem and self-worth. This approach to therapy focuses on the client's own mastery experiences related to eating/ restricting/ purging behaviors. Thus an individual can experience a positive ripple effect that can spill over and influence other aspects of one's life.

Lisa O'Bryan, M.S. Ed.

Resident in Counseling

Within driving distance of Portsmouth

Eating disorders are more than just bulimia and/or anorexia. I define eating disorders and any unhealthy relationship that an individual has with food and eating that affects his/her daily life. I teach my patients that food is not a bad thing to be avoided; rather, a wonderful thing to fuel our bodies and help us live our lives to our fullest potentials.
