Eating Disorder Therapy – Counselors and Therapists in Greenville, SC

Eating disorders – it’s almost taboo to talk about them; but an estimated 20 million women and 10 million men in America report having an eating disorder at some point in their lives. The most common forms of eating disorders are anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating. In some cases, the disorder stems from a loss of control in one’s life, but for most people, it’s birthed in irregular eating habits and severe concern regarding body size or shape.

Emily Gilliam

Emily was the first therapist I had ever gone to after thinking for a long time it would be good for me. I was...Read more

stuck in a rut and repeating patterns and using coping skills that were no longer helpful to me. She helped me work through many of my personal issues, some which had been stewing since childhood. She always knew when to push and when to back off if a certain issue was too sensitive at that time. She is honest yet kind. I was sad to see her move out of Chicago but I will forever be grateful for the tools she helped me to develop for dealing with the sh**show that life can be sometimes. She helped me get back into alignment with who I really am as a person. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is struggling or even just looking for a little more balance in their lives.

dn't see it myself. She helped me with my grief after losing my father. She helped me overcome my addictions with drugs and alcohol. She taught me to be kind to myself and that everyday is not gonna be an amazing day and that's okay. She helped me accept that I don't have to know the outcomes to big life changes that it's best to go with the flow, wear life like a loose garment. Emily is such and amazing counselor and I am forever grateful for everything she helped me see. Emily cares tremendously and I know deep in my heart she is gonna continue being the sunshine in many more client lives. Emily has made a huge impact on my life and I don't think I will ever find a counselor as down to earth as she is. Chicago misses you already!!! :) :) :)

ion. I thought I was handling it well until one day had a massive panic attack. I did my research and reached out to her immediately. She met with me the next day and helped my put a plan into place for recovery. The first time I met her, I knew I could trust her and she tailored my therapy and sessions to what I needed at the time and at each stage of progress. There were times I digressed and she helped me get back on track and we celebrated my small wins and progress together. I would recommend her to any friend or family member. I know personally, taking the first step to get help is an important one. I can confidently say she was a great first step for me and I know she's fantastic at helping others too.
