“I reached my goal weight but now I just want to lose a few more pounds.”
“I hate looking in the mirror”
“Everyone keeps telling me I lost too much weight, but I know I am fat.”
“I think about food all day long”
“I can’t stop comparing myself to other people”
“I am not stick-thin, so I can’t have anorexia.”
“I feel like I am possessed by a demon with these thoughts of food and weight loss in my head”
“I can’t stop weighing myself multiple times per day.”
“I think people are lying to me when they tell me how thin I am”
“I lost my period but I am sure it will come back”

Therapy for anorexia in Clarks Summit
At Dr. Cynthia Edwards-Hawver and Associates, we don’t focus on what you want to call it, we focus on getting you better. You don’t have to spend your life feeling this way. Please, if you or a loved one are suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, reach out today.
Anorexia Nervosa has the highest mortality rate of any mental health disorder. This has not changed in years, despite having better treatment, research, and knowledge. The key to recovery is not waiting any longer to get help. The longer the disease goes untreated, the more difficult it is to treat.
Most people with Anorexia Nervosa never believe that they are “sick enough” to get the diagnosis, let alone the treatment they deserve. This is simply not true and, unfortunately, your desire to lose weight will never stop and it will never be enough until you are dead.
Please, end the cycle for yourself or someone that you love and call today to make that first step towards getting your life back.
Our goal is not to make you “fat”, our goal is to get you healthy and help you get your life back. We will work with your physician, nutritionists, and other medical professionals to give you the comprehensive treatment you deserve.
