Reaching Out for Eating Disorder Treatment is Hard to do
We know how hard it is to reach out for treatment. You may be afraid that if you get help,
your body will change and you won't be able to manage how you look.
Or, you may feel worried that if you change your behaviors,
you will start to feel out of control.
Some don't believe they deserve to have the freedom and joy of a healthy relationship with their body.
If this is you, we see you! Our team understands that reaching out for eating disorder 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. Also, we 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.
Can boys and men benefit from eating disorder treatment?
The rate of boys and men who suffer from an eating disorder is much higher than we thought before. 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 eating disorder treatment, reach out today! Connect with a therapist and schedule your free consultation!

Support for Family & Loved Ones
It is well known that eating disorders and substance abuse don’t just affect the person who is struggling. These disorders affect the entire family system. But the good news is that family members can be an integral part of a person’s recovery.
As a support person, you may feel frustrated, anxious, or uncertain about what to do to help your loved one. Treatment is mostly focused on the individual who is struggling with these issues. Frequently, family members struggle to cope with their emotions surrounding their loved one's struggles. They often need support and guidance as they make decisions on their loved one's care and navigate the treatment process.
Whether it is your adolescent child, a young adult child, or an adult sibling who is struggling with an eating disorder or substance abuse - there is help available. A therapist can help you to learn how to support your loved one.
As a professional that specializes in treating eating disorders and substance abuse disorders, Hannah offers professional consultation for families and loved ones. She helps family members develop a short-term action plan, learn more about their challenges, discuss treatment options, and assist in re-establishing healthy connections.
For an initial 50-minute professional consultation, the fee is $140. On-going family consultations are available.
