Body Image Issues

Charactistics
Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a distinct mental disorder in which a person is fixated on a real or imagined physical defect others often don’t see. People who have body image issues often have weight management issues. Body dissatisfaction may lead them to eat out of frustration and for comfort, and may be correlated with binge eating.

Treatment
As an expert in cognitive behavior therapy, Dr. Saks will work with you to learn to better accept your body and develop weight management strategies. Treatment often involves learning how to identify, challenge, and replace maladaptive thoughts about weight, shape, and perfectionism.
