Disordered Eating

Blurred Lines

There is a fine line between an eating disorder and disordered eating, yet they often blur together as a misguided twin. The former is a strict diagnosis -- disorders we have heard of like anorexia nervosa or bulimia that have specific and narrow criteria. One who subconsciously practices disordered eating, however, is trickier to detect as a serious health concern since its eating patterns may not display all the classic symptoms typically identified with an actual disorder. A person exhibiting disordered eating habits and behaviors also may be experiencing significant physical emotional and mental stress. Our approach involves a combination of cognitive behavioral and dialectal therapies, intuitive eating, and mindfulness-based techniques.

Additionally, we understand that men and all people of color do not receive the same access to disordered eating treatment. EMPOWER is an ally and offers a
safe space for BIPOC and LGBTQ.

Be Empowered

At Empower we understand that disordered eating attitudes can affect every part of your life. We provide a collaborative care approach with a team focused on respecting diversity, and committed to supporting each client through the continuum of care. 

Disordered eating behaviors often stem from other mental health diagnoses or trauma. Our programs are designed to provide the specialized care needed to work through the root of these debilitating issues.
