Few things in life are as all-encompassing as our relationship with food. When the relationship is a good and healthy one, it typically goes unnoticed or it’s a positive relationship that brings consistent pleasure and happiness. However, when one’s relationship with food is less that ideal, it can be a relationship wrought with pain, guilt, and shame. Food is something we have to face, whether it causes us distress or not. That’s why it’s critical to get the help you need if you’re suffering from the symptoms of an eating disorder. The licensed eating disorder experts at Thriveworks in Littleton, CO can help you form a treatment plan that will address your unhealthy eating behaviors.
