Healing Your Relationship with Food and Body
Have an unhealthy relationship with food or your body? Tired of spending time obsessing, counting, weighing, exercising, or comparing? Do you find yourself allowing your body or the food you consume to define your self-worth? It can be extremely difficult, especially with the current toxic media narrative, to overcome obsessive thoughts about food and body alone.
Whether you suffer from an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, or orthorexia, have disordered eating habits, experience distress or guilt after meals, feel controlled by the need to exercise, experience poor body image, or are stuck in a cycle of chronic dieting, I am here to help. We will work together to address your underlying issues, and I will offer new ways of thinking, communicating, and interacting with the world, free of unwanted obsessions, maladaptive behaviors, and critical self-talk.
I believe you have the ability to fully recover in order to live a freer life and am here to support you through the process.
“Being recovered to me is when the person can accept his or her natural body size and shape and no longer has a self-destructive or unnatural relationship with food or exercise. When you are recovered, food and weight take a proper perspective in your life and what you weigh is not more important than who you are; in fact, actual numbers are of little or no importance at all. When recovered, you will not compromise your health or betray your soul to look a certain way, wear a certain size or reach a certain number on a scale. When recovered, you do not use eating disorder behaviors to deal with, distract from, or cope with other problems."
