Food is very powerful! It is the nutritional fuel that supports our bodies and it can also fuel how we feel. Often, we find ourselves eating for reasons other than hunger. This may occur when we feel bored or lonely, when we feel stressed or anxious, or when we just have a strong need for comfort. Sometimes we do not realize that we are using food in an attempt to cope with these feelings. We confuse our emotional hunger for true hunger. While food may temporarily improve how we feel, it is usually not the right fix for our emotions. Through therapy we can support you in identifying the emotions that trigger eating and find healthier and more satisfying ways to cope with them.
