Our Programs > Body Image Group
Meets weekly on Tuesdays from 6:45pm-8:00pm
Lead by Natalie Jacobs, LMFT, licensed psychotherapist with monthly nutritional guidance from Therese Bridges, MS RDN CDN, registered dietitian.
The objectives of the group include gaining insight into the relationship with one's body and how eating disorder behaviors and urges are often a result of the way in which emotions manifest in one's physical body. Members will gain support around practicing emotional regulation throughout the week and practicing self-compassion when going through a therapeutic process. The group will foster understanding about how poor body image, lack of sense of self, and low self-esteem impact our identity and make change difficult. Monthly group nutritional sessions will provide education about food neutrality, debunking food myths, and encourage clients to not allow body image and appearance to control behaviors, interactions, and our way of being in this world.
This group is not limited to a specific type of eating disorder and will allow clients to explore the underlying issues that impede them from maintaining a stable recovery.
