The Hunger on My Bones:

Intensive Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Group

The Hunger on my Bones Group

intensive group therapy

The power of group therapy is that it demystifies the uniqueness of eating disorder behaviors and lessens the shamefulness while allowing participants to appreciate the adaptive aspects of an eating disorder. This 10 week intensive group therapy program will assist each participant in cultivating a more expansive understanding of the personal meaning of their eating disorder and delve more deeply into the dynamics of the body and mind. In a structured yet dynamic and spontaneous setting, each week is designed to progressively address both the symptomatic and psychological aspects of an eating disorder. This group is ideal for people who have both received prior psychotherapy and those new to the psychodynamic therapy process. Space is limited and prior assessment required.

Groups are forming each month and dates will be discussed at the time of interview.

 
 

Angela provides an individualized assessment process of 1- 3 sessions in order to determine the most appropriate and suitable level of eating disorder therapy for each individual or family that she works with.  She has developed a specialized assessment process that provides a comprehensive understanding of eating disorder symptoms and the related levels of care.  Angela is adept at being able to differentiate, illuminate and determine the severity of a patient's symptoms, which will assist in developing the most effective treatment plan for a given person or family system at a given time.


It always comes back to the same necessity: go deep enough and there is a bedrock of truth, however hard.
