When it comes to eating disorders or disordered eating, something that becomes pretty clear over time is that it is not simply about food or one's body. My job is to help you uncover what truly is going on. The behaviors, restriction, purging, binging, exercising, etc, are actually helping you cope with something. Our work together starts out as just simply being detectives trying to understand and solve the mystery. Once the other sources of distress are uncovered, we work on developing other forms of coping, all the while having compassion and understanding for why it was necessary for the eating disorder to be there in the first place. Complicated? Well you wont be alone!
