Body Image therapists in Faribault, Minnesota MN
We live in a culture that values certain body types more than others. This reality often brings feelings of shame for people of all body types that do not feel they can live up to these impossible beauty standards. Shame surrounding issues of body image lead to depression, anxiety, self harm and relational difficulties. It is my goal to help patients recognize these harmful thought processes and habits that damage self esteem and ones relationship to their own body. I believe that mitigating these beliefs and patters and lead to happier and healthier lives for those who wish to embark on the journey of body positivity.

Self-acceptance and understanding the internalized demands of family and culture are critical in working with body image. Learning to like yourself may necessitate making changes. It's often difficult to accept that these changes are not based in how you look but in who you are and how present yourself to the world. Reviewing our life circumstances often guides us to understand how and why you may be preoccupied with their body. This goes along with developing a more robust self-concept and enhanced self - esteem in order to free you to direct your energy and creativity on interests outside body image.
