Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you unhappy with what you see in the mirror? Does the number on the scale determine your mood or how your day will be? Are you afraid of being fat or worried about your weight? Do you feel fat even though others say you’re too thin? Do you think you will be happy if you are thin? Do you count calories, exercise to burn calories, or purge after you eat? Do you eat when you’re upset or does food give you comfort? Do you feel controlled by food?

If you are feeling controlled by thoughts, fears, and worries about food, weight, and appearance, you might feel frustrated, depressed, anxious, confused, and exhausted. I provide special counseling services to help you understand why you are thinking and feeling this way so that you can take control of your life instead of being controlled by food and weight issues.
