orlando therapy for Eating disorders

The progression of an eating disorder can be so subtle.  Symptoms of disordered eating can mirror socially accepted attitudes and behaviors related to food & exercise, leaving you uncertain as to whether you really have a problem.   

For individuals of size, our society’s difficulty accepting diversity of bodies may have planted a seed that you must lose weight to be worthwhile, even if the method leaves you malnourished and depleted of energy.  

If you are exhausted by anxiety and guilt regarding food, numbers, or your body, I want you to know that you do not have to be alone any longer in that struggle. In our work together, you can be empowered with a balanced, intuitive approach to food, body, and exercise. 

evidence based Treatment of body image, Emotional Eating, & weight concerns

This work will include research based principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Intuitive Eating, Motivational Interviewing, & Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

If applicable, we will work collaboratively to help you face fears, emotions, or past trauma that may be perpetuating your reliance on food as an escape or source of control.  We may also reflect on societal, cultural, familial messages that have shaped your relationship with food and your body over time. 

This kind of reflection can be a starting place to connect with your body and appropriately nourish yourself because you want to do so, not because someone told you need to look a certain way to be successful.   

I also understand the importance of collaboration amongst healthcare providers in the treatment of eating concerns.  With your permission, I take the time to coordinate your care with a physician, dietitian, and/or psychiatrist to ensure that you are receiving the highest standard of care at the outpatient level.
