Eating & Body Image Issues and Eating Disorders

Eating issues and disordered eating is rarely just about the food. When clients seek me out for support with eating, we work on a variety of related issues, such as perfectionism, control issues and anxiety, low self-esteem, emotional overwhelm, difficulty setting boundaries, and challenges prioritizing their own wants and needs. Through a process of self-reflection, self-acceptance, and self-empowerment, I help clients identify the confidence and capabilities they already possess, and improve their relationship to food and their bodies. It is my privilege to help clients identify and nurture the strong, unique, bold individuals that they already are!

I may be a good fit for clients coping with the following concerns and diagnoses:

  • Binge Eating Disorder
  • Bulimia Nervosa
  • Anorexia Nervosa & Atypical Anorexia Nervosa
  • Restrictive eating patterns
  • Orthorexia Nervosa
  • Body Dysmorphic Disorder
  • Compulsive exercise
  • Obsessive thoughts and behaviors related to diet and exercise
  • Body image concerns

*When working with eating and body issues or disorders, I emphasis overall wellness and physical, mental, and emotional health. I do not stress weight loss as a primary goal for treatment.

Anxiety & Stress Management

I help clients to get in touch with the origins of their anxiety and/or perfectionism, and aid them in understanding these tendencies and providing them with healthier outlets. I support clients in effectively handling stress by slowing down and living more mindfully and authentically. I work with clients  to foster their natural gifts and abilities and minimize emotional and behavioral responses that are no longer beneficial to them. I have worked extensively with clients with trauma histories and utilize treatment modalities tailored towards healing the fragmentation that sometimes results from trauma.

I may be a good fit for clients coping with the following concerns and diagnoses:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  • Agoraphobia
  • Social Anxiety Disorder
  • Panic Disorder
  • Specific Phobias
  • PTSD
  • Stress Management/Overwhelm
  • Perfectionism
  • Shame
  • Poor Self-Esteem/Self-Image
