Eating Disorder Help & Resources

If you or your loved one has an eating disorder, you may be looking for eating disorder help and resources.  Eating disorders thrive in isolation and eating disorder treatment including therapy, nutrition counseling, and medical care is often needed to overcome an eating disorder.  I realize that it can be overwhelming and difficult to find eating disorder help and treatment.  I specialize in working with eating disorders and provide counseling services in Westminster, Colorado.  Below is a list of local and national resources that I recommend, ranging from general information, free support groups, and treatment centers.  Please feel free to contact me if you are struggling with an eating disorder, such as Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder, or EDNOS.  I’d be happy to talk with you and discuss how I can help, whether through therapy for an eating disorder, connecting you to helpful resources, or providing appropriate referrals.
