eating disorders

Food and weight problems are painful, debilitating and potentially life-threatening. Obsessing about calories or body shape or size, undereating, overeating, purging, and/or overexercising can cause serious emotional and physical consequences.

Eating disorders are complex in origin. A convoluted interplay of genetic, social, psychological and physiological factors, often coupled with triggering events, contributes to their development. Generally, an eating disorder begins as an attempt to control something tangible – like calories consumed or numbers on a scale – when someone is having difficulty managing painful life situations and overwhelming emotions. A person may reach a challenging phase of life – puberty, leaving home or a major loss, for example – and simply not have the emotional tools to manage. She or he may turn to manipulating food or weight as a way to cope and push away the pain. Food is a necessity, but it is also a commodity, and food misuse and body abuse can be very damaging.

But recovery from an eating disorder is possible. Individuals seeking recovery need solid support and expert guidance from a licensed psychotherapist. Parents, siblings and other family members experience pain, confusion and distress as well. They, too, can heal. We are here to help.
