People with negative body image have a greater likelihood of developing an eating disorder and are more likely to suffer from feelings of depression, isolation, low self-esteem, and obsessions with weight loss. We all may have our days when we feel awkward or uncomfortable in our bodies, but the key to developing positive body image is to recognize and respect our natural shape and learn to overpower those negative thoughts and feelings with positive, affirming, and accepting ones. Our eating disorder treatment team has expertise in treating individuals with all types of eating disorders and body image disturbances. Therapists can offer both individual and group therapy to help you process and recognize behaviors/distorted cognition’s relating to your eating disorder/body image disturbance.
