What Is Anorexia Nervosa?

Anorexia nervosa is a severe eating disorder characterized by an intense fear of gaining weight, leading to self-imposed starvation and extreme thinness. Individuals with anorexia nervosa often have a distorted body image and an obsessive preoccupation with food and dieting. Symptoms of anorexia nervosa can include:

  • Extreme weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Social withdrawal

If left untreated, it can lead to serious medical complications and even death. People develop this condition for several reasons, including body image concerns, low self-esteem, cultural pressures, and traumatic life experiences.

The Dangers of Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia nervosa can lead to severe health complications, including:

  • Heart problems
  • Bone loss
  • Kidney damage
  • Death

Mental health issues, like depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder

Early intervention and treatment are crucial in preventing these profound consequences.

How Does Anorexia Nervosa Treatment Work?

Our anorexia nervosa treatment program focuses on healing the mind-body disconnection through compassion, shame reduction, and education. We explore the root causes of AN, such as:

Family Dynamics

Family can contribute to the development of anorexia or make it worse. We work with clients and their families to understand their roles in eating disorders and create a healthier family system.

Societal Influences

Culture often praises thinness while shaming individuals for having a “normal” body size. Our program provides education on body acceptance and developing a healthy relationship with food.


Many people with eating disorders have experienced trauma. We provide therapy to help individuals process and heal from their past experiences.

Genetic Predispositions

There are certain genetic factors that can increase the risk of developing anorexia. We provide education and support for individuals who are genetically predisposed to this condition.

After examining a person’s individual situation, our treatment team designs a personalized plan to help them on their journey toward recovery. We work with clients to create an individualized meal plan that meets their nutritional needs and food preferences. Our nutrition counseling also helps them learn healthy eating habits and develop a positive relationship with food. We also provide therapy to help our clients manage their emotions in a healthy way and reduce their levels of stress.
