Anorexia treatment in Austin, Texas
Do you feel like what you eat and what you weigh has taken over your life?
Whether you've been doing this for a while or only a short time, you may realize you are no longer in control.
You never seem to arrive at the "ideal" body you had in mind.
You constantly think about food, calories, exercise, etc.
You may have thought changing your body would make you happy, but you are definitely not enjoying life like you hoped.
It is honestly hard not to develop an eating disorder in this society. There is so much misinformation about nutrition mixed with a large dose of widespread fatphobia. Nine out of 10 people with eating disorders go undiagnosed because no one seems to think they have a problem.
At Austin Counseling and Nutrition, we meet you with compassion and inclusivity. A combination of therapy and nutrition is recommended for most people seeking recovery from anorexia. We can help you assess for appropriate level of care and lead you in the right direction as needed.
Our dietitians help you make gentle changes to eating and surrounding behaviors to guide you to being fully nourished. Further, we help you balance activity and rest to best support your body's needs. Body image work is also explored within nutrition counseling in eating disorder treatment.
Our therapists are trained in methods which support eating disorder recovery by helping clients regulate mood, heal childhood wounds, and deal with underlying depression and anxiety. We use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, as well as other modalities.
