Emotional Eating Therapy in Westlake Village
HEALING THE HUNGER WITHIN
Emotional eating is something we all do from time to time. If we have a stressful day we may crave comfort food, if we are feeling angry we may need to munch on something crunchy, if we are feeling lonely we may just eat too much or not at all. But when this kind of eating or starving goes from sometimes to most of the time, it could be a sign that there is something we are avoiding feeling, experiencing or doing. Eating or starving are used to soothe painful and difficult emotions. By identifying what underlies emotional eating we open up new ways to take care of ourselves and heal the hunger within.
