  • "Connection is the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship." — Brené Brown
  • The common pattern we see with people who struggle with eating disorders is an inability to connect to and experience inner emotion. Therefore, people come to us in a closed off and extremely lonely state, despite potentially appearing happy and fulfilled. Rather than receiving comfort from self and loved ones, they attempt to comfort their inner pain with their eating disorder, as it can provide a sense of accomplishment, focus and distraction. Here at Be, our team helps people recognize and shift these often inter-generational patterns of connection.

    Through a combination of integrated therapies including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT),  Dialectical Behavioral Therapy,(DBT), Interpersonal Therapy(IPT),nutritional therapy, art therapy, yoga and mindfulness practice, the Be team helps people learn to connect to their emotions and bring curiosity and care to them. This connection and understanding results in an increased awareness and comfort experiencing the feelings that many try to ignore and push away. Once inner connection is improved, people then learn to be vulnerable by expressing their emotions outward and letting themselves be seen and cared for.

    This ultimately decreases loneliness and increases connection of the mindset and behavior. People practice this work at Be through their therapeutic and group relationships as well as in family therapy. As connection increases it is rewarding to see symptomatic behaviors decrease. The work at Be is not easy. Learning to be vulnerable, connect with your emotions, and transform the way you relate to family, friends and yourself is not a simple feat. But that is how true, lasting healing can occur, and we are wholeheartedly dedicated to getting you there.
