Eating disorders are biologically based illnesses that affect individuals not only psychologically but also medically. They are composed of a combination of genetic, temperamental, environmental, social, behavioral and emotional factors. They are not a choice or a disorder of vanity. Eating disorders encompass a variety of symptoms including body image concerns, fears and phobias and high levels of anxiety and depression.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a neurobiological condition. OCD is much more than a disorder of cleanliness or organization. It is characterized by marked impairment in daily function due to persistent intrusive thoughts or obsessions and the need to engage in compulsions or behaviors to try to neutralize these thoughts. Exposure and Response Prevention therapy aims to help you lean into otherwise avoided situations and gain confidence in your ability to navigate these challenges.
