Food and eating are often heavily connected to an individuals self worth and views of themselves. Men and women alike are surrounded by a culture that intensifies the idea that beauty and acceptance comes from size or appearance. Whether this is through binging, withholding food, persistent dieting, or exercise, this path can be controlling of the mind and body. Eating disorders are often paired with anxiety, the desire to be in control of an area of life, depression, or health concerns. The journey to recovery from an eating disorder is one that can be rewarding, and with time, the challenges can be overcome.

Eating disorders cover a wide range of behavior. This could be from simply eating too much to the more complex conditions of anorexia or bulimia. We have a special compassion for and an expertise in helping people that are struggling with eating disorders. Treatment plans include discipline strategies to change our thinking process about eating which results in a change of behavior. We also work with people who have experienced some type of emotional trauma which is usually a root cause of the more serious eating disorders. We work to find that root cause and not just deal with the symptoms of a condition.
