Eating disorders and disordered eating patterns can cause an enormous amount of suffering, impacting thought patterns, emotions, and behaviors that surround weight and food issues. Treatment of eating disorders necessitates a holistic approach which may include psychotherapy, nutritional counseling, and medical and psychiatric monitoring. At Wildflower, we will assess your symptoms and upon arriving at a nuanced understanding of what you are experiencing, collaborate with you to determine the best course of action. This may involve working with a therapist at our practice and/or referral to other highly regarded eating disorders specialists in the Chicagoland area.
We are committed to helping you cultivate a healthier and more effective relationship with food and your body. In addressing disordered eating and body image issues, we follow the Healthy At Every Size (HAES) principles which entail celebrating and respecting body diversity, raising critical awareness through challenging cultural assumptions, and creating space for compassionate self-care.
