Eating Disorders / Disordered Eating
Whether it's an eating disorder, disordered eating, or chronic dieting, I want you to know it's more than just a “control issue” (either having too much or not enough control). I help you understand how your biology, personality traits, challenging events in your life, and cultural messages come together to impact your unhealthy relationship with food and your body.
I believe in empowering and helping you practice compassion with yourself in this process as you learn new ways of dealing with what perpetuates your eating disorder/disordered eating/chronic dieting behaviors.
Even when you doubt it you can get better, I promise to be there with you.
Based on your needs, I work closely with dietitians, doctors, and psychiatrists to provide a multi-faceted and comprehensive team approach to your overall health. You may also consider joining support groups offered, as connecting with others who really "get it" can be crucial in recovery (See fliers below).
Having worked outpatient to inpatient levels of care for eating disorder treatment in the Dallas area allows me to understand what is needed at each stage of recovery.
I have clinical expertise in treating the following:
- anorexia nervosa
- bulimia nervosa
- binge eating
- body image concerns
- chronic dieting
- compulsive eating
- compulsive exercising
- emotional eating
- disordered eating (concerns with body image, food, and exercise are less severe or pervasive)
- post-bariatric recovery
