Struggling with Eating?
Does this sound familiar?

We Can Help.
Therapy can help. It’s usually NOT about the food, and figuring out why you’ve chosen to risk your health and happiness for (usually) unrealistic goals can free you from the pain of living with an eating disorder.
Disordered eating can be devastating and painful to both experience and witness. If you have an unhealthy relationship with food, please consider seeking help. If you know someone you suspect is victim to disordered eating, please encourage them to seek help.
We are also offering a mindfulness group for binge-eating.

What is Disordered Eating?
Disordered Eating generally presents as a preoccupation with food, either avoiding it, using it for reward, punishment, or a method of self control. Sometimes this affliction morphs into a full Eating Disorder, which is one of the leading causes of death for young women in the US today.
Anorexia Nervosa is a serious and life challenging condition. Prior to seeking therapy to maintain health, clients usually require an intense outpatient, or inpatient treatment plan. There are excellent facilities for treatment in Oregon.
Therapy for loved ones living with someone suffering from Anorexia is important, and can occur prior to or concurrently with treatment for the sufferer.
