Many of us have difficult relationships with food
ecovering from a history of disordered eating is possible, regardless of how long you may have been struggling with it. We help people along the full spectrum of disordered eating, including: body image issues, compulsive overeating, and over-exercising, as well as clients with clinically diagnosable eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating.
Our treatment is tailored to each individual, and will vary depending upon the severity of the disorder and the patient’s individual situation. If appropriate, we will coordinate our care with your medical, nutritional and dental care providers to ensure comprehensive treatment and support.
Early diagnosis and intervention significantly improve the chances of recovery. If not identified or treated in their early stages, eating disorders can become chronic, debilitating and even fatal.
Some of the signs that you or someone you know may have an eating disorder are:
- Intense preoccupation with weight and body image
- Inability to make an objective assessment of body shape and size
- Self-induced vomiting
- Misuse of laxatives, diuretics, enemas, or other medications
- Chronically eating past the point of being comfortably full
Getting therapy for disordered eating can help you:
- Develop a wholesome relationship with food
- Address the emotional issues that drive your relationship with food
- Challenge the voices in your head that contribute to destructive patterns of eating
- Treat your body with kindness compassion
- Learn to decrease stress and develop healthier coping habits
The therapists at Kerry Moller and Associates have extensive training and experience in working with disordered eating and understand how isolating, debilitating and sometimes shameful it can feel to have a difficult relationship with food. We are committed to providing a safe and supportive place for you to uncover what is at the core of your issues with food and help you work towards creating a healthier relationship with yourself and your body.
We also offer support and guidance to friends and family members of loved ones who are struggling with an eating disorder. If you have a family member of a friend who you suspect may have an eating disorder, we suggest that you read this helpful resource.
