Eating Disorders are complex psychological conditions that interrupt one’s relationship with food, thereby impacting physical and mental health. These disorders are non-discriminatory, impacting anyone of any race, wealth status, gender, sexuality, age, body size, ethnicity, or religion. There is nothing uncommon about eating disorders.
You don’t need a clinical diagnosis of an eating disorder to have a complicated relationship with food and a need for support. You can find this support through our skilled therapists and dietitians who identify as being weight-inclusive eating disorder treatment providers.
Individuals who struggle with eating disorders may experience a range of disordered eating habits, including limited variety or rigidity of food choices, feeling out of control or guilt around food, having a fear of choking or vomiting from eating, compulsively eating certain foods or non-nutritive items, calorie counting, compulsive exercise, or vomiting after eating. Eating disorders are considered biopsychosocial, meaning a person’s eating disorder development can be influenced by a combination of biological, social, and psychological factors.
