Flourish Psychology provides Brooklyn Anorexia Treatments and Programs with Experienced Eating Disorder Therapists and Specialists
We live in a very body-image-focused world. It is not uncommon for teens and adults to develop eating disorders as a result of the pressure our society puts on both women and men to maintain a specific appearance. Anorexia is one of the most common types of eating disorder and often requires professional care in order to overcome its symptoms.
At Flourish Psychology, our eating disorder therapists and counselors have a deep understanding of the many complex causes of these conditions and provide treatment and solutions that help encourage healthy eating and a more realistic view of body image. Contact us using our online form or by calling 917-737-9475.
What Is Anorexia Nervosa?
Anorexia Nervosa, typically shortened to just “anorexia,” is a type of eating disorder that typically involves significant caloric restriction until a person is considered severely underweight.
Those with anorexia often refrain from all food or eat very small amounts of low calorie food. They also tend to have a distorted body image, seeing themselves as “bigger” than they are, and have a debilitating fear of gaining weight.
Anorexia can be very dangerous. Calories are necessary for the body to function properly, and so those with anorexia may develop health issues as a result of caloric restriction. Obsessions with weight loss and preventing weight gain can also affect a person’s relationships and work life.
How Is Anorexia Treated?
Here at Flourish Psychology in Brooklyn, our anorexia therapists utilize many different modalities in order to treat your eating disorders. Not only do we try to treat anorexia itself, but we also look at other conditions that may be contributing to its symptoms, such as anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and depression. Some of the types of therapy we may use include:
You and your therapist for anorexia will work together to determine what treatment makes the most sense for your struggles, and find solutions that will provide you with the best possible results.
