If you or a loved one is suffering from eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia or binge eating, you know how devastating they can be. Eating disorders can lead to significant medical complications, depression, isolation and substance abuse. If left untreated, eating disorders can even be fatal.

In a culture where thinness is usually linked with physical attractiveness, success, and happiness, nearly everyone has dealt with issues regarding the effect their weight and body shape can have on their self-image. However, eating disorders are not about dieting or vanity; they're complex psychological disorders in which an individual's eating patterns are developed—and then habitually maintained—in an attempt to cope with other problems in their life.

If you or someone you love is currently struggling with any form of eating disorder we encourage you to contact us today to begin a journey of hope and healing.
