EXCITING NEWS: We are in the process of gathering names and interest for two groups:
- Mens Body Image and Eating Disorder Group
- Women’s (possibly Adolescent girls) Body Image and Eating Disorder Group
We are one of the only group practices in NJ offering these groups!
We will be offering a support group for individuals who struggle with eating, obsessive compulsive disorders, and borderline personality. We meet weekly and learn skills associated with mindfulness, eating disorder stabilization, emotion regulation, over-control, stress tolerance and effective communication. You can get what you want when paralyzed by emotion.
Why participate in a support group?
If you are a person who often says, “no one gets me,” or “I don’t think anyone is ever going to understand what i’m going through,” or even “I am the only person who struggles like this,” Group therapy can take that perception away in an instant!
This is an opportunity to be heard by your peers and see how other people overcome their problems. So many people I work with feel isolated every day. Being a part of a group creates validation and attachment – two things many people seek. The process enables you to understand that you’re not the only person in the world suffering.
Change your life, Change your behaviors!
Why Group Therapy?
If you are a person who doesn’t want to feel isolated and alone and work towards a meaningful way to work on your eating disorder, this is for you. Our group will keep you supported and on track. You won’t feel bogged down every week. You will learn skills without feeling pressured.
The group dynamic is always welcoming. The number of participants is always kept to a low number. The main components of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is always kept to a high standard. They include
- Stress Tolerance
- Underlying Mental Health Needs
- Emotion Regulation
- Health At Every Size
- Communicating Effectively
Do you offer any other support groups?
We are beginning to consider running a
- parent group
- psychotherapy for eating disorders group
