Binge Eating Disorder

Binge Eating Disorder

Once again, you find yourself in sitting on the floor in front of the fridge tonight, looking for a way to numb the pain. You have tried so hard to deal with the pressures of everyday life by staying busy, but now that you are home and alone, everything you pushed aside has resurfaced. You feel out of control and helpless.

You’re not even hungry, but you “give into” the food. You make the other “stuff” go away, just for the moment, even though you understand it all comes later, even stronger. Maybe one day this will end, but not tonight. It’s a constant cycle of feeling pain, numbing with food and feeling guilty & shameful…then it starts again.

Binge Eating

If this sounds familiar, you likely relate to the experiences below. In addition to feeling out of control while eating, you also eat;

You already possess the elements needed for change. We help you find them and explore the path to new beginnings.

Can you imagine a living life you enjoy? Picture it. Sitting in the chair on your porch listening to the birds chirping, without feeling distressed by your thoughts. Resume your connections with others, by going out and having fun. Join your colleagues after work for dinner. No longer plan your day around food. Meet with us today in any one of our offices in Chicago-Lakeview, Yorkville or Lombard, and begin to explore the possibilities.

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 maternal mental health 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.
