Eating Disorders

The sooner you get help for your eating disorder, the sooner you can start living the life you want.

How to treat eating disorders? (Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating)

Living with an eating disorder can feel like a daily tug-of-war, compounded by the anxiety of trying to hide your struggle. This constant internal conflict is so loaded with shame that it can affect your ability to participate in your own life.

Having an eating disorder does not mean there’s something fundamentally wrong with you. An eating disorder is a mental illness – and just like a physical illness, it requires treatment to get well.

We’re here to help.

How to know if I have an eating disorder?

Eating disorders are characterized by a severe disturbance in eating behaviors. Disordered eating behaviors include:

Eating and other problematic eating behavior

Disordered eating behaviors tend to sneak up on you, and may initially seem like an occasional occurrence or something that’s not a big deal. But behaviors like binging, purging, restricting eating, and otherwise ignoring your body’s cues aren’t healthy for you, and it’s never too early to talk to someone if you’re worried about your relationship with food.

Disordered eating, at its core, is a type of self-harm, and it’s usually used to cope with something. A therapist can help you understand and address the underlying problem that’s driving this behavior.

Can therapy help with eating disorders?

If you’re worried about your eating behavior, your first step is to see a therapist. You may also need to see a dietician. Your therapist can help connect you with this and any other referrals you may need.

You don’t have to wait until you’re at a more critical stage to reach out for support. The sooner you get help, the sooner you can start living the happy, healthy life you want and deserve.

It gets better. You’re worth it. Talk to one of our professional therapists now.
