Eating disorders are serious but treatable mental and physical illnesses that can affect all people. If you find that you are preoccupied with your body, food, weight loss, dieting, control of food, restriction or binging, it is time to seek help. As with eating disorders, body image concerns can affect us all. A negative body image involves a distorted perception of your size & shape. Negative body image/body dissatisfaction involves feelings of shame, anxiety, and self-consciousness. You may feel your body is flawed in comparison to others, and struggle with feelings of depression, isolation, low self-esteem, and eating disorders.
If you are struggling with disordered eating and/or body image concerns, it would be an honor to guide you on your counseling journey toward making peace with food and your body. Online therapy is now available as a safe, accessible tool to enhance your treatment options.
