Eating disorders are characterized by eating patterns that disrupt an individual’s mental, physical, and emotion wellbeing. This may be from eating too much, such as bulimia nervosa and binge eating, or eating too little, such as anorexia nervosa. Seeking help can be embarrassing and intimidating, so they often go untreated, which severely impedes functionality, relationships as well as the attainment of goals.
Typically, eating disorders are a coping mechanism for underlying psychological problems including depression, anxiety, panic and stress. TheraCorp’s licensed psychotherapist will help guide you towards a full recovery by treating psychological disturbances such as low self-esteem, interpersonal conflicts, and distorted body image to help you achieve a “life worth living”.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The goal of cognitive behavior therapy is to teach patients that while they cannot control every aspect of the world around them, they can take control of how they interpret and deal with things in their environment. CBT is used to treat a wide range of disorders, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, etc.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Psychotherapeutic treatment that addresses thinking patterns and behaviors and incorporates strategies such as emotional regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and mindfulness. Its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, cope healthily with stress, regulate emotions, and improve relationships with others.
