Licensed Psychologist in Connecticut, Florida, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania
You may find yourself constantly thinking about food, weight, and shape. You might feel unable to control your behaviors around food and you may notice it significantly affecting your relationships. Some people feel that their relationship with food is beyond repair and I am here to tell you that there is hope and there is healing.
If you are suffering from an eating disorder you may be wondering how treatment can help. In therapy our overall goal will be to help you make peace with food and normalize your eating patterns. We will begin by assessing the nature of your struggles and collaborate on a plan for treatment that feels right for you. This plan may include changing negative thought patterns as well as processing any issues that might underlie the eating disorder. We might work to improve your personal relationships or get past an event or situation that triggered the disorder in the first place.
Whatever your needs are, we will address them with care. There are other aspects of treatment as well. I may ask that you attend sessions with a nutritionist to help assess and guide you through the nutritional aspect of healing. When you have the necessary skills and feel ready, I can provide meal-support to help you practice mindful eating as well as real-life exposures such as helping you manage your anxiety in situations like the grocery store. Your support system is also an important aspect in your recovery from an eating disorder. When appropriate, I involve significant others and families in eating disorder treatment. Other supportive individuals are welcome to be a part of the counseling process as well.
It is imperative to receive treatment if you are suffering from an eating disorder and most people with eating disorders can be treated successfully with therapy. You can be confident that I will work closely with you to help you regain control of your eating behaviors and your life. Contact me today for your complimentary phone consultation.
Eating Disorder Treatment
I am dedicated to providing compassionate and expert treatment for eating disorders. I believe that full recovery is possible and I welcome the opportunity to show you how.
An eating disorder can damage your life in ways you never imagined.
The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.
