Eating Disorder Coaching For Caregivers
"The only way out is through"
Finally, the comprehensive support you need...
So your child, or adult child has been through eating disorder treatment, now they are back home, or you are visiting them and have no idea what to say or do.
Maybe you are concerned that they are slowly going back into old eating disorder behaviors, but you aren't sure. Should you say something? How can you help?
As a therapist who has extensive experience treating those individuals with eating disorders both in outpatient and inpatient settings, I understand that there is a missing piece in the treatment of eating disorders. That is the support and education for loved ones and caregivers. We want the best for those that we love who are struggling with body image and food distress, but often we have no idea what to say or do. I can help.
Are you concerned about a loved one and their relationship with food?
Has food become problematic to the point of interfering with your relationship?
Feeling powerless through their struggles?
Are you looking for support, education, or guidance?
Watching someone you care about struggle with food, and not knowing what to do can be one of the most difficult things to deal with. I offer supportive, coaching style meetings which will address your concerns, and give you the tools you need to feel more confident in being able to support your loved one.
A 30 minute coaching/support session can help.
During a session we will discuss your specific concerns, whether these concerns rise to the level of disordered eating, and how you can help. Together we can address how to best offer your support, how to navigate meal times, as well as learn more about eating disorders and how they show up.
Helpful/unhelpful conversations, things to say and not to say
How your own habits may be impacting your loved one
Underlying concerns/what fuels an eating disorder
Next steps, how to move forward
Signs of relapse/when to intervene and get help for your loved one
I will work with your current/previous treatment team as appropriate
