Body Image/Eating Disorders Treatment for Men and Women
Eating disorders such as Bulimia, Binging, and Anorexia have a direct connection to the work that clients do with me as to exploring their trauma and how they are ‘triggerable’ or ‘reactive.’ Successful treatment comes in the form of developing a deeply trusted relationship with the therapist who helps the client connect to their inner resources as well as external ones such as a Nutritionist, Psychiatrist, and support groups. I use a treatment team approach for more severe cases. Some of the individual clients have had years of eating disordered behaviors that they have finally began to face for the first time in my office. The goal is always to move to a place where they can know themselves in a new way that is free of struggling with body image and the shame that accompanies that battle.
