"Do you find that you regularly battle with your body and brain? Second guessing what to say, ashamed of your body, and judgmental of your thoughts? Do you utilize food to avoid emotionally or to force your body into a different look? Is trauma impacting your relationships? You are not alone. Health is not a static place to achieve that defines who you are as a person, rather it is a continuum we have that ebbs and flows as we engage in our lives. As we continue to strive for unachievable perfection, we end up with intrusive, ruminative negative thoughts and in a constant power struggle with our brain and body. "

A therapist can help provide support or connect you to a Leawood COD network or support group.
