Eating Disorder Misconceptions:

  • Eating disorders are a choice
    Nope. We guarantee you that 100% of our clients would not choose to have their ED. It is a mental health illness.
  • Eating disorders have a look (i.e., thin, emaciated bodies)
    Nope! Actually 92% of folks with ED do not live in a body considered “underweight”. Folks of all sizes can be impacted by eating disorders. Weight discrimination in health care is a contributing risk factor to the development of eating disorders. Your weight is NOT a requirement to get support.
  • Waiting to get “sicker” to get help
    Please don’t wait. If your relationship with food and your body is currently impacting your quality of life, please reach out for support. You are so deserving of support today, here, and now.
  • Recovery is a one-size-fits-all
    Immediately no. Your eating disorder is unique. The reason it exists and the reason it is maintained is all very personal to you and your story. Your treatment absolutely needs to reflect your uniqueness and should be personalized to your needs.
  • Folks grow out of their eating disorders
    Again, No. Eating disorders are not a phase. They are not something we just grow out of. They are a serious mental health illness that requires proper treatment.

If you are ready to work with a specialized team of health care providers who just get it, book a free call now.
