True recovery from an eating disorder is possible.
Mindfullness is an outpatient clinic providing individual and family therapy for children, adolescents, and adults. We specialize in the treatment of eating disorders and body image concerns.
As licensed mental health professionals we are also qualified to treat additional areas of concern such as trauma, anxiety, depression and relationship/life concerns. We know struggling with an eating disorder is a scary and complicated time, and we are here to help and support you through your recovery journey.
It takes courage to address your problems and make changes in your life. Mindfullness provides a warm and supportive environment. We encourage you to talk openly about your thoughts and feelings. Together, we can better understand factors contributing to current difficulties and help you make the changes you are looking for and establish a life free from food and weight preoccupation.
How can we work together?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is considered the treatment of choice for adult eating disorders and is often combined with other treatment modalities. CBT focuses on the core beliefs, feelings and behaviors that maintain the eating disorder such as fear of weight gain, impaired body image and faulty beliefs about food. CBT also addresses personality characteristics that can reinforce the eating disorder. Many tools and techniques will be used to address faulty cognitions and develop healthier and more flexible beliefs about food, eating and body image. In addition to CBT, our therapists also integrate aspects mindfulness, meditation, mindful self-compassion, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and intuitive eating into their work.
Family Based Therapy for Adolescents
Parents and family members can be patients’ best allies in the treatment process!
Many adolescents and young adults with Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa benefit from a Family Based Treatment Approach (FBT). FBT involves the entire family working with the therapist to take charge of re-feeding their child and working toward health. The process begins with a parent in charge approach and works with the patient and family to transition to independence as recovery from disordered eating occurs.
Intuitive eating can sound like a simple idea, but is often feel difficult to put into daily practice. Our individual therapists can work with you to find a way to let go of old outdated diet plans by identifying your unique hunger/fullness cues, find a way of eating that best honors your body (and allows room for all foods!).
Mindfullness can provide individual and family therapy via telehealth using a secure telehealth platform. This allows for convenience in scheduling and increased availability/accessibility of our services while located in Michigan.
