Eating disorders are notorious for being difficult to recover from. Despite what the media portrays, eating disorders are complex conditions that affect people of all races, ages, socioeconomic status, body types and genders. There is no specific reason someone develops an eating disorder, and there is no one way an eating disorder presents itself.
We specialize in working with women who are on the eating disorder spectrum, struggling with their body image and/or relationship with food, but may not meet all criteria for a diagnosis.
We firmly believe in Heath at Every Size (HAES) and intuitive eating. We believe eating disorder behaviors are best treated through the lens of addiction because the acts of binging, purging, starving and dieting can become addictive and used as a way to escape pain and manage emotions. We do not believe food itself is addictive, however the ways we use it can be. We use a holistic lens to treat eating disorders and believe full recovery is possible.
