Treatment Programs That Work for Every Body
At The Body Image Therapy Center (TBITC), we’re here to help. Our centers in Central Maryland and Washington, D.C., provide treatment programs designed to help individuals, couples, and families develop healthy lifestyles, self-esteem and a positive body image. We teach you to learn to love yourself from the inside out and stop the destructive patterns of an eating disorder and co-occurring issues.
For many people with eating disorders, a variety of concerns led to their disordered behavior. These issues need intensive work to be resolved. For many, individual therapy is the heart of life-long recovery and is the primary tool for treating all forms of eating disorders, from anorexia and compulsive exercise to binge eating disorder and bulimia.
TBITC provides ongoing groups designed to enhance the recovery process. These groups allow for peer feedback, education, and skill development. A variety of topics are discussed, and participants are asked to share openly and honestly.
These consultations, which are geared toward parents and caregivers, provide answers to your questions about how to best approach your child or teen about an eating disorder, body image issue, or self-harm behavior. This is often the first step for helping a child or teen enter treatment.
Often, those closest to us can be our greatest asset in recovery. Research has shown that, when the family learns new relationship skills and gains a deeper understanding of the role an eating disorder, compulsive eating, or body image disturbance plays in the life of the client, recovery is faster and more sustainable. Working with TBITC’s therapists, together we can determine how to best involve the people who are most important in a patient’s support system.
We work closely with several psychiatrists in our community to provide medication management for those clients who would benefit and who are being seen for individual treatment with one of our therapists.
Nutrition is a key component to recovery from an eating disorder, allowing you to learn how to have a healthy relationship with food as well as how to get the most joy and performance out of your body. TBITC provides nutrition counseling to help you have long-term success.
