Things we treat alongside eating disorders
Eating disorders are always accompanied by other mental health challenges, so we don’t focus only on food or body image. Our relationship with food and our bodies doesn’t develop in a vacuum, but are highly impacted by many factors. Other issues we commonly treat in therapy alongside disordered eating include:
From a philosophical perspective, all of our therapists and coaches are anti-diet, Health At Every Size® (HAES)-friendly professionals. That means we do not encourage clients to go on any kind of diet nor do we encourage intentional weight loss. We feel that would unethical considering intentional weight loss fails long-term 95% of the time and has negative physical and emotional consequences, especially for those with eating disorders.
Our goal is to help you break free from diet culture and your own internal critic so you can finally—maybe for the first time in your life!—call a truce with food and your body. Instead of dieting and restriction, you can eat intuitively and enjoy all kinds of foods without guilt and shame!
Below are some examples of common therapeutic goals we might work on in eating disorder therapy, but this is certainly not an exhaustive list and treatment depends on your particular issues with food and body image.
