Counseling Specific to Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are complex and often deeply personal struggles that can have a profound impact on both physical and emotional well-being. At Symmetry Counseling, we provide specialized eating disorder counseling services designed to guide you on the path to recovery, healing, and a healthier relationship with food and your body.

Understanding Eating Disorders

Worldwide, 70 million individuals suffer from eating disorders, and 30 million of these people live in the USA. A common misconception is that having an eating disorder and maintaining the behaviors involved are lifestyle choices. Eating disorders can be incredibly serious and often result in fatal illnesses. People who suffer from eating disorders struggle with self-destructive thoughts and behaviors related to food, eating, weight, and body image.

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness, making treatment critically important. Eating disorders can affect anyone and are on the rise in every culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and background. While there are multiple diagnoses that can encompass eating disorders, behaviors tend to fall into three main groups: restricting, purging, and binging.

If you or a loved one are living with an eating disorder, professional counseling from Symmetry Counseling can help. Contact us today to get the support you need.
