There’s no question that letting go of an eating disorder is one of the hardest things a person can do. While it may feel like there is no escape from your eating disorder, recovery IS possible. When you make the decision to break free of ED, it can feel like giving up a part of your identity, one that you have likely held on to for a long time. Recovery will not be easy, but you are capable of so much more than the lies your eating disorder tells you. If you need help, ask for it today.
You are worthy of recovery and living a full life!
My hope for you in therapy is to make you feel comfortable, accepted, and safe. I will help you better understand yourself and your eating disorder. Eating disorders thrive in secrecy, so being honest is a way to move against your eating disorder and towards recovery. Treatment for eating disorders should address more than just your symptoms and destructive eating habits. We will explore the underlying issues of your eating disorder, work to improve your self-esteem, and learn new healthy ways of coping.
Because eating disorders have serious consequences, it’s important to have a team that is the right fit, with a strong understanding of eating disorders. I have 6 years of experience working with eating disorders in a variety of settings including, individual, family, group outpatient therapy, day treatment, and intensive outpatient programs.
Eating disorders are not anyone’s fault!
I am trained in the Maudsley Approach (Family Based Therapy) for treating eating disorders in children and adolescents.
The Maudsley approach is characterized as an intensive outpatient treatment where parents take an active role in their child’s recovery. I will work with the family to help restore the child’s weight to a normal range, empower and support the family, and encourage normal adolescent development.
