Group Therapy for Women with Binge Eating Disorder

Get support and understanding from other women who understand.

It's lonely when you are overeating and gaining weight. It's hard to talk about it unless you are on a diet and losing weight. This is the #1 reason people join my therapy groups for women. 

I guide group members in helping each other leave their painful past behind and make permanent lifestyle changes. We focus on mindful eating and a positive body image. What group members have in common is a deep devotion to self-awareness and the project of self-care and healing. Differences between individual members are equally important and respected.

You would begin by meeting with me for a few individual sessions to prepare for the group experience. Groups meet every week on Tuesday or Wednesday evenings. Information on fees and insurance is here.

What are the benefits of group therapy for Binge Eating Disorder?

  • Get support as you experiment with new eating behaviors and attitudes toward your body.
  • Learn from other women who are on the road to recovery.
  • Become more comfortable in relationships.
  • Practice skills such as self-nurturing, conflict resolution, and assertiveness.
  • Identify and cope with feelings that trigger overeating such as anger, sadness, loneliness, stress, anxiety.
  • Improve self-esteem as you become more comfortable with yourself in relation to others.

I recommend reading this article posted by the American Group Psychotherapy Association. It is good preparation for the group, and will help you make a decision about joining.

Members of a cohesive group feel warmth and comfort in the group and a sense of belonging; they value the group and feel in turn that they are valued, accepted, and supported by other members. 

― Irvin D. Yalom, The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy

It is possible to recover from Binge Eating Disorder. 

Your problematic eating behaviors subside when you no longer need them.
