Eating disorder counseling in Vancouver, WA. At Get Centered Counseling, Tamara Duarte works with people struggling with compulsive dieting, anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, body image disturbances, depression, anxiety, and grief. Tamara is a licensed professional counselor and licensed mental health counselor in Vancouver, WA.
Individual, family, and group counseling services for women struggling with eating disorders are available. I work with a treatment team when necessary, made up of dietitian, a physician, psychiatrist, and myself to monitor the client during treatment. During an eating disorder many women report experiencing depression and anxiety. I work with each client to develop an individual treatment plan specifics to the needs and goals of each person. Therapy can be incredibly stressful so I work hard to create a safe, nonjudgmental space for my clients where they can learn to live their ideal life.
