Finding a therapist for my eating disorder recovery

I’m going through a tough time right now. I’ve been struggling with an eating disorder for a while, and I’m ready to start recovery. One of the biggest steps I need to take in getting help is finding a therapist so that I have someone to talk to and discuss my mental health needs with. It’s hard for me to admit that I might need external support, but I understand that it’s important.

The process of trying to find the right therapist can be intimidating. Knowing that each person has their own practice and style can make it difficult to determine who will meet my needs best. But I am grateful that we have access so many different types of people who are dedicated and highly skilled at providing therapy services because this means there is sure to be somebody out there who can help me work through this journey.

I am committed to taking the necessary steps towards recovery, including finding the right therapist for myself. To do this successfully, I’ll need to really think about what type of experience and care I am looking for in order for recovery from my eating disorder.
