First, it's important to know that I am NOT going to take away your eating disorder the minute you walk into session!
This has been your coping mechanism and it would be dangerous to demand you live without any coping mechanisms, but I will help you develop new, healthier, and more effective ones.
At Get Centered Counseling, I provide individual and/or family counseling. Since eating disorders are incredibly serious and can be physically and emotionally dangerous, it is important to be seeing a dietitian, as well as being monitored by a doctor. I will work closely with your other treatment providers to ensure the most comprehensive care possible and we will form your treatment team. A treatment team is necessary so that the physical, psychological, and nutritional aspects of an eating disorder can all be assessed and treated appropriately.
Members of your treatment team should all specialize in eating disorders. Together, you and your treatment team will work to get your life back. If you do not already have a dietitian or a doctor, don't worry! Call me and set up an appointment, and I will try to help you find someone with whom you feel comfortable.
Beyond eating disorders
Depression. Anxiety. Grief. Trauma.
Are you often sad or tired and unable to get motivated by things you used to find pleasurable? Do you spend a lot of time consumed with thoughts of the past? Are there times you struggle to get out of bed, shower, or be productive? Has your appetite increased or decreased since these feeling started? Has your sleeping changed? You may be experiencing depression. About 1 in 10 American have depression, but 80% are not receiving help. I'd like to change that. I can help you.
Do you worry extensively about the future? Does this worry overwhelm you and effect your life? Have your personal relationships been effected by your worrying? You may be experiencing anxiety. Anxiety is the most common mental health illness in America. It is highly treatable and I'd like to help you.
Grief can be debilitating. Maybe you feel stuck in time, unable to move forward, paralyzed by the experience? Some people report a shift in how they see the world and not knowing how to move on after the loss. Still others report emotions that oscillate so quickly they feel unable to function properly or unable to process the loss. If this is you, I can help you.
Trauma can happen in many different ways and experiencing distress after a traumatic event is normal, but when should you seek help? A good rule of thumb is to get support if the distressing symptoms are still occurring after 30 days. Are you having trouble sleeping, experiencing flashbacks, easily startled, feeling like danger is all around you? These are a few of the many symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. I am here and I would like to help you.
