Our Approach: We’ve Walked a Mile in Your Shoes
Do you spend hours each day worrying that you’re too fat or too thin, or feel that eating is the one thing you can control? Do you turn to alcohol or drugs, or to self-harm behaviors such as cutting, to stop the pain?
Founder Andrew Walen, LCSW-C and the experienced team at the Body Image Therapy Center know what it’s like to have an eating disorder or self-harm disorder. That’s because we’ve been there ourselves. We combine our personal understanding of these disorders with our professional training to bring you a uniquely compassionate and empathetic recovery model.
Best Practices with a Personalized Approach
We follow accepted best practices for treating anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and other disorders, while avoiding formulaic approaches. Instead, we develop a personalized approach for each client that is based on your specific needs and that seeks to treat you as a whole person. Where appropriate, we incorporate other proven approaches, such as psychodrama, hypnotherapy, art therapy, mindfulness training, nutrition counseling and other experiential modalities, to facilitate your recovery.
Our willingness to customize your treatment to fit your needs is why so many of our clients recommend us.
