Do you hate the way
you look? Is there a part of you that believes thinner people are happier—or that you’re not lovable if you’re not thin? Are you constantly comparing your body to others around you? Do you have a history of bingeing or purging?
If you struggle with an eating disorder, every meal can be a challenge. Ordinary tasks can fall by the wayside as thoughts of food become your singular focus. Eating disorders can feel like a prison. If any of these symptoms sound familiar, our clinicians can help.
Eating disorders can effect both children and adults. Let us help you untangle your relationship to eating, health, and your own body image... and bring back the joy in your life.
