Males

Whether you’re struggling with anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating disorder and emotional eating, you need to know that you’re not alone. Many males in our community are experiencing similar challenges and feelings. You deserve to not have to do this on your own.

Historically, eating disorders were characterized as only impacting girls or women. However, this simply isn’t true. Males with eating disorders can experience significant isolation in their illness, as well as in their attempts at seeking help. I have heard repeatedly from males that all of the information they found about eating disorders reinforced the stereotype that eating disorders are a “female disorder.” Even if they attempt to seek help from medical professionals, their eating disorder may not be identified because males can experience different medical complications, which can be life-threatening if overlooked.

I want you to know that I understand what you’re going through and you can feel safe in my program. I know that often the symptoms present themselves differently, the societal pressures and stereotypes are different for men, which must be understood as part of the treatment process.

Each individual has unique issues that they are facing. I offer specialized treatment designed to help males in the Kansas City area with eating disorders heal physically and emotionally. My approach is designed to help you recover as you deal with the day-to-day stresses of school, work and life.

I encourage you to check out the resources on my website. If you feel that I could be the right partner for your journey, you can contact me to learn more about getting started. It would be my honor to join you on your journey to recovery and to help you regain and restore your life to health and happiness.
