Eating Disorders
& Body Image

We are Alaska's first premier therapy service for eating disorders and body image concerns

Our multidisciplinary team of professionals provides specialized treatment for disordered eating and body image concerns—whatever they may be—both in-person and via HIPAA-compliant video conferencing.

Don't have a diagnosable eating disorder like anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating disorder? That's okay. Our team helps all individuals who are seeking a better, more connected relationship with their bodies. 

How do I Know if I Have an Eating Disorder or Body Image Concerns?

It's not always easy to know if you have an eating disorder, because the symptoms vary widely. Eating disorders can involve many things:

  • Overeating

  • Eating too little

  • Being overly concerned with clean eating

  • Thinking about food more than anything else.

 

Body image concerns are similarly varied—they can include the following:

  • Unrealistic body expectations

  • Having a skewed perspective of yourself

  • Being overly concerned with a particular part of your body

  • Believing your muscles are always too small or undefined

 

If you think you might have eating or body concerns, please reach out to us.

What We Believe

Everyone is capable of change, and everybody should feel good in their skin. We actively resist diet culture and don't believe every healthy body looks the same. We believe freedom from comparison and embracing your body can provide a more fulfilled and meaningful life. 

Who We Serve

We serve everybody, no matter their body. We work with anyone who wants to feel better in their skin, struggles with their relationship with food, or wants freedom from old habits. There is a common misperception that only young, white, affluent women struggle with eating disorders. At Counseling Anchorage, we know that eating disorders and body image struggles can affect people of all genders, sexual orientations, skin colors, and socioeconomics. We encourage all people to honestly consider their relationship with their bodies and seek help if that relationship isn't what they want it to be.
