On the Surface, It Looks Like You Have Your Life All Put Together.
You’ve got the job, the relationship, and the long list of accomplishments.
But what people don’t see, is that all of your achievements are just a mask for the failure you feel inside. The truth is, you’re in pain and the only way to make it “go away” is to use your eating disorder to feel numb or any sort of temporary “relief.”
Little do they know, you feel empty inside. That if things don’t look perfect, or if you aren’t staying busy all of the time- you will fall to pieces. And, you feel shame in whatever you do.
You spend the entire day thinking about the next meal…and the last meal. Your mind is a constant calculator of numbers. If you walk past a mirror, you either look away or immediately notice the part of you that you wish you could change.
Going to the gym is a necessity. If you miss going, you are tormented the entire day by the voices in your head saying, “What’s wrong with you?”
You try to stay busy, so you don’t have to pay attention to what surfaces, but that doesn’t seem to work anymore. And the cycle continues.
You are in this relationship with your eating disorder, and you are ready to break-up. This isn’t working for you anymore. But it feels so scary to go your own way…
How can you leave the one partner that has always “been there” for you?
But a lot of the times, you feel alone and insecure.
And you’re not sure what next steps to take to accept who you are is good enough. That’s where Bricolage Wellness comes in.
Ready to take that first step towards living a meaningful life?
Let us help you look at the ways this relationship keeps you stuck. We can help you discover the things in life that you truly value, not your ED or what other people tell you are important.
Bricolage is a therapeutic wellness center that provides all-inclusive care for women searching for support through a “Health At Every Size” lens. We guide clients looking to move towards recovery from anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder. Clinicians will help you navigate through the poor body image to find a place on the body liberation spectrum. Ultimately, we are here to hold space for you to be who you are, not who others expect you to be.
As a group of compassionate and authentic change agents, we offer you the room to explore your story and rewrite it in a way that matters to you. By weaving together elements of self-worth, self-compassion, and the things in life that bring you joy and meaning, we work with you to craft a new narrative.
Therapy for food and body-related issues is best for those who recognize that food, exercise and/or body image are dictating emotions, are impacting their relationships and responsibilities, or are impeding day to day life.
You will benefit from working with Bricolage if:
Receiving Counseling for Eating Disorders, Disordered Eating and Poor Body Image
Eating Disorder counseling is intended to help you find your authentic self, separate from your body image and ED.
Together you and your therapist will discover a sense of acceptance of the idea that you don’t need to be perfect.
You will meet together weekly for 45-55 minutes and you will start to feel a sense of relief and validation of the struggles you are going through.
What’s unique about Bricolage, is that we offer a multi-dimensional viewpoint on healing and transformation. Our utmost goal is to make sure we meet all of your needs, so we will connect you with outside resources when we know they will be of benefit to you.
