Does the idea that life can be free from obsessing about someone or something seem impossible?
It is possible! Life can be fun and include happiness, joy, love and comfort. It can also include the ability to tolerate pain, sadness, and guilt without using destructive behaviors to cope.
How much time do you spend comparing yourself to others, basing your own or others' value on looks, or wishing your body was different?
If you’d like to have a better relationship with your body, know that it is possible.
Many people have been freed from compulsive thoughts and behaviors and you can too.
The work we will do includes uncovering new meanings for “hungry” and “full,” understanding what obsessions can be really about, and how to have relationships that are more rewarding.
If you or someone you care about is struggling with thoughts or behaviors you don’t want anymore, contact me for an appointment or referrals to appropriate resources.
Next month, you could be thinking about how different you used to be, back when you were still just thinking about getting help.
