This will be your first session with your therapist. The purpose of the intake session is for the therapist and you to create the most whole and accurate picture of you as possible. In other words, this is a time where your therapist goes over all there is to know (as if that’s possible in one session) about you to help gather a picture to help you both out. One way in which your therapist gets to know you is through the use of forms.
Binge Eating Disorder
Individuals with binge eating disorder (BED) experience recurrent episodes of eating too much, eating too quickly, and eating until they’re painfully full. They also regularly feel ashamed, disgusted, distressed, and depressed about their bingeing.
Individuals with Bulimia have potentially life-threatening eating disorder characterized by a cycle of bingeing and compensatory behaviors such as self-induced vomiting designed to undo or compensate for the effects of binge eating.
Body Image Therapeutic Coaching
Body image involves two key elements: how you see your physical body (including size, shape, and appearance), and your attitude toward your physical self (such as thoughts, feelings and beliefs about your body). Coaching is for anyone looking to make positive changes in their life. I offer coaching services to help women create and sustain a positive relationship with food, their body and their mind.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an empirically supported treatment for this disorder. DBT treatment consists of clients attending DBT Skills Groups and individual therapy with a DBT therapist.
