Do you struggle with body image? Do you agonize over your food intake or spend countless hours in the gym trying to reach the perfect size or weight? Or maybe you feel like you’re never enough. Not pretty enough, not thin enough, not smart enough, or not fit enough. No matter your concerns, whether it is disordered eating, distorted self-image, or other issues, my goal is to help you become free of the negative thoughts spiraling in your head and assist you in learning self-acceptance. I adopt a holistic approach and believe that everyone has the capability within them to heal themselves but nobody was meant to do it alone.
I am currently working on a certification as an eating disorders specialist (CEDS) and I see clients who struggle with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, or body image. I also specialize in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) for trauma and a variety of other issues. Additionally, I offer faith-based and non faith-based counseling.
I enjoy working with clients from all walks of life and a variety of issues including, but not limited to, disordered eating, depression, anxiety, grief, and trauma. I look forward to working with you and coming alongside you on your journey to healing. If you think I can help, please contact me at Hope and Healing Counseling Center and ask for Melissa.
