We help clients free up their lives to live more fully and happily.
Imagine how your life could be if you had time to focus on the people, experiences, and things that you cared most about.
Reaching out is hard to do
We know how hard it is to reach out for treatment. Maybe you are afraid that if you get help,
your body will change and you won't be able to manage how you look.
Or maybe you are worried that if you change your behaviors,
you will start to feel out of control.
For some people,
they don't believe that they even deserve to have the freedom and joy that comes from a healthy relationship with their body.
If this is you, we see you, and appreciate that reaching out for treatment is a big step. We want to assure you that we always honor and respect any resistance to change that you may bring to therapy, and will always let you lead the therapy experience. You may be asked to find the courage to change and stretch outside of your comfort zone, but you will never be asked to do anything that doesn't feel right for you.
Do boys and men experience eating disorders?
The rate of boys and men who suffer from an eating disorder is much higher than we previously thought. Men and boys do experience anorexia, bulimia, body dysmorphia, and disordered eating. According to the National Eating Disorder Association:
"Despite the stereotype that eating disorders only occur in women, about one in three people struggling with an eating disorder is male, and subclinical eating disordered behaviors (including binge eating, purging, laxative abuse, and fasting for weight loss) are nearly as common among men as they are among women.
In the United States alone, eating disorders will affect 10 million males at some point in their lives. But due in large part to cultural bias, they are much less likely to seek treatment for their eating disorder."
Luckily, we know that boys and men show similar positive responses to treatment as women. If you or someone you know would benefit from professional help, reach out today to schedule your free consultation!
