Weight Loss

Comfort food has its name for a reason; there’s something about a warm plate of carbs that is soothing. But when we start to turn to food as the major problem solver in our lives, it can lead to health problems and body image issues. Talking with a therapist about compulsive eating helps you identify why you eat when and what you do, and to develop tools to build healthier eating habits.
How can a therapist help with weight loss?
Talking with a therapist about weight loss can help you identify how your weight is impacting your life. Together, you and your therapist work to uncover the root causes of why you aren’t achieving your weight loss goals. Then, you can develop strategies that will change your mindset and allow you to feel better about yourself and your weight loss journey.
Causes of overeating include:
  • Unresolved trauma
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Busy lifestyle
  • Boredom and overthinking
  • Distorted thinking and beliefs

Eating great food activates the pleasure center of our brains, making it a seemingly easy substitution when we’re feeling unfulfilled or out of sorts. Talking with a therapist can help you identify why you’re continuously reaching for your favorite snack. Then, you and your therapist work together to address root causes of overeating. By changing your mindset, rewiring your brain and getting a new perspective, you can take real steps to achieve your goals.
