The Body Image Therapy Center (TBITC) is Maryland and D.C.’s premier outpatient treatment center offering comprehensive and compassionate care for those with eating disorders, and co-occurring disorders like self-harm behaviors or other destructive habits. We’ll help you learn to accept your body and learn to love yourself from the inside out.
We follow accepted best practices for treating anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and other disorders, while avoiding formulaic approaches. Instead, we develop a personalized approach for each client that is based on your specific needs and that seeks to treat you as a whole person. Where appropriate, we incorporate other proven approaches, such as psychodrama, hypnotherapy, art therapy, mindfulness training, nutrition counseling and other experiential modalities, to facilitate your recovery.
Our willingness to customize your treatment to fit your needs is why so many of our clients recommend us.
We get to the root of the issues that have caused you to undertake destructive behaviors such as binge eating, bulimia, anorexia or cutting. We help you understand and resolve underlying issues, such as problems with body image, self-esteem, trauma or anger that may be at the heart of your need to find comfort and control.
Using approaches that are tailored just for you, we may employ psychotherapy, behavior modification, meditation, art therapy and other experiential tools to help you learn healthy new behaviors and normalize your relationship with food, mood and your body.
