Body Image Therapy

Mental health therapy is recommended if you are experiencing the below-listed symptoms and feel they impact your daily life. Treatment can also prevent body image concerns from escalating to mental health issues like eating disorders.

Negative body image is the belief that one's body or parts of the body are unacceptable. Body iimage struggles can be challenging to avoid when we live in a culture that glorifies specific beauty ideals. Societal messages bombard us by telling us our worth is connected to our appearance and size.

Our treatment approaches at Bloom help you address body image concerns and rebuild a healthy self-image. Bloom follows non-diet approaches, such as Intuitive Eating and Health At Every Size® (HAES®). We also help you develop skills to become a critical viewer of inaccurate societal messages related to appearance and size.

Let us help your self-esteem bloom.
