Body image is one of the biggest stressors in our society

Food is just one of the ways we try to control it

Like our bodies, eating disorders come in all shapes and sizes. While anorexia and bulimia may be the most well-known eating disorders, some additional problematic behaviors can include: excessive checking of your body, desire to get surgeries to change your body, over-exercising, using laxatives, or any other behavior that overly focuses on changing your physical appearance.

Eating disorders can drastically impact your emotions, create severe physical problems, and become life-threatening. Here are a few warning signs:

  • Excessive nighttime eating
  • Unhealthy diet restrictions
  • Regular avoidance of food or exercise
  • Sudden weight loss or gain
  • Irregular eating or dieting patterns


let's find out if we're a good fit.

How can therapy help?

While medical attention may be needed in some cases, CBT therapy can positively change your relationship with diet and exercise by changing the way you think about them. The ultimate goal is to reduce your negative feelings — like shame and guilt — while simultaneously improving your self-esteem.

Together, we will help you learn healthy coping mechanisms when it comes to your urges, change your thought patterns in order to prevent harmful behaviors, and help you understand you understand your negative thoughts around body image.

These are the 3 most common eating disorders

» Anorexia

Anorexia Nervosa is the insufficient intake of food that causes extreme weight loss and health issues. In layman’s terms, it’s when you restrict most or all of your daily calories to try and limit your weight. When you suffer from anorexia, you severely fear weight gain and have destructive behavior patterns to control and prevent it.

» Binge Eating

Binge Eating Disorder is the consumption of large amounts of food without preventing weight gain. You may feel like you can’t control your behavior. You may eat when you’re not hungry … sometimes to the point of pain. Due to your feelings of shame and guilt, you also may eat alone more often than not.

» Bulimia

Bulimia Nervosa is the consumption of large amounts of food followed by extreme methods to prevent weight gain, such as purging (vomiting) or extreme over-exercising.

You may notice that you over-eat to numb some of your emotions and the shame and guilt cause you to try and purge the calories thereafter. Long periods of purging can also have strong negative physical effects not related to weight loss, such as damaged teeth and gums.
