Intuitive Eating Philosophy
Living in a society which bombards us with mixed messages about how we should relate to food, it’s not a surprise that nutrition has become tangled with emotions. Thinness is equated to emotional well-being and success. Extreme exercise and diet regimens are glorified as a quick fix. Behaviors that may begin as an effort to achieve control, quickly may have evolved to extreme, out-of-control behaviors.
Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating negatively impact our mood, self-esteem and ability to function. Disordered eating patterns not only wreak havoc on our medical health but they distance our goals, values and ability to be our authentic selves.
In my treatment approach, I utilize the principles of intuitive eating. These ideals emphasize an adaptive relationship between food, mind, and body. Much of the therapeutic work will emphasize making peace with food and normalizing eating patterns. Learn to recognize and distinguish the difference between physical and emotional feelings while simultaneously unveiling the core issues fueling disordered eating. Many women and men DO recover from eating disorders and I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!
