Food & Body Image Related Issues

On the Surface, It Looks Like You Have Your Life All Put Together.

You’ve got the job, the relationship, and the long list of accomplishments.

But what people don’t see, is that all of your achievements are just a mask for the failure you feel inside. The truth is, you’re in pain and the only way to make it “go away” is to use your eating disorder to feel numb or any sort of temporary “relief.”

Little do they know, you feel empty inside. That if things don’t look perfect, or if you aren’t staying busy all of the time- you will fall to pieces. And, you feel shame in whatever you do.

You spend the entire day thinking about the next meal…and the last meal. Your mind is a constant calculator of numbers. If you walk past a mirror, you either look away or immediately notice the part of you that you wish you could change.

Going to the gym is a necessity. If you miss going, you are tormented the entire day by the voices in your head saying, “What’s wrong with you?”

You try to stay busy, so you don’t have to pay attention to what surfaces, but that doesn’t seem to work anymore. And the cycle continues.

You are in this relationship with your eating disorder, and you are ready to break-up. This isn’t working for you anymore. But it feels so scary to go your own way…

How can you leave the one partner that has always “been there” for you?

But a lot of the times, you feel alone and insecure.

And you’re not sure what next steps to take to accept who you are is good enough. That’s where Bricolage Wellness comes in.

Here’s what to expect when you work with us:

Free Phone Consult:

At Bricolage, we extend a free 15-minute phone consultation to make sure we are a good fit to work together. We will discuss what your goals are, explain what therapy will look like, and how your life will be different after working with us. By the end of this call, you will have
a clear idea of your next steps.

Initial Session:

Your first meeting with your therapist will be between 60 and 70 minutes and will allow the two of you to begin to build a relationship.
You will go over the information you provided before this initial session as well as dive into all of the elements of your story. Throughout
this appointment, you and your therapist will work as a team to create your action plan.

Weekly Sessions:

Once you and your therapist begin to work deeply together, you will experience a type of treatment that has been completely tailored
to you and your needs. Your therapist will take keen notice of where you are in your wellness journey and ensure that the exercises you complete in session will bring you a sense of comfort and peace as you move forward.

Completion of Goals

As a team, you and your therapist will continue to evaluate your progress and growth. Eventually, the two of you will recognize that you
are responding to stressors more effectively and that weekly therapy might no longer be necessary. At this point you can choose to come to session less often and together you will decide what level of support you need for the future.

Our team of compassionate professionals will help you tap into the strengths you already possess and guide you to stop looking for the “if” and start taking advantage of the NOW.
