Eating Disorder Therapy – Counselors and Therapists in Charlottesville, VA

For so many people, it brings both inward and outward shame to be afflicted with an eating disorder; it’s often worn as a badge of dishonor or even guilt. Too many individuals fight against eating disorders silently and alone, often acting in ways that will ensure their difficulties with food remain hidden. Unfortunately, keeping the struggle against eating disorders hidden almost always means keeping the struggle against eating disorders alive. You may have fallen prey to the belief that an eating disorder is a sign of personal weakness, or maybe that it’s even a sin.

At Thriveworks Counseling Charlottesville, VA we know the truth about eating disorders, and we understand that struggles of this nature are not signs of weakness or failure. It’s vital to realize that true healing is not just an issue of “willpower.” That’s why we are here – to help you along the journey to recovery.

You can overcome your eating disorder, and we are here to help you along the way!

The onset of eating disorders is not a random occurrence. In fact, many circumstances and events can trigger eating disorders.

Some contributing factors include:

  • Anxiety, worry, or stress
  • Poor perception of oneself or body
  • Past and/or present emotional or physical abuse
  • The general feeling of lacking control of one’s life
  • Pressure from society to achieve unrealistic expectations or standards

Eating disorders may be more common than you think. In fact, over twenty-four million people suffer from an eating disorder of some kind in the United States alone, and only 1 in 10 of those people ever receive the proper care and treatment they need, according to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD).

Eating disorders can take hold of your life and lead you believe that there’s no possible way to break free from their grasp; but Thriveworks Charlottesville, VA is here to help you understand and, more importantly, to believe for yourself that eating disorders do not own you!

You are capable of breaking free from the damaging habits and cycles that accompany these afflictions. It is possible to get your life back to the way it was before food became the enemy. Food is a necessary part of life, and you can once again have a positive relationship with it. Once you do, you’ll be absolutely amazed at how much better you will feel, not only physically, but mentally as well! Even beyond that, you’ll gain back control of your life, your priorities, and your focus.

If you’re struggling with food, please reach out to us. Our team of professional counselors would be privileged to help you win your fight. Your family, friends, career, body, and mind will thank you for taking back control.

Thriveworks counselors help so many clients each year to beat eating disorders and live a healthier, more joyful life, and can help you too! We are in-network with most insurance plans and offer quick, convenient appointments – usually within 24 hours of the day you reach out to us!
