What We Do
Bringing Order to Your Eating Disorder
Eating disorders can be challenging to treat. Effective treatment needs to combine best-practice approaches with compassion and a deep understanding of their underlying causes.
The Body Image Therapy Center (TBITC) is unlike any other eating treatment program you will find as we place a strong emphasis on recognizing the unique needs of our diverse client backgrounds as we help you bring order to your eating disorder.
With all levels of care in Maryland and D.C., TBITC and its team of highly qualified, licensed professionals seek to be a catalyst for positive change for women, men, LGBTQIA+ individuals, teens and adolescents as young as 11 who suffer from an eating disorder. Our program is staffed by those with a vested interest in treating eating disorders either because most have recovered themselves or have a loved one who has struggled, so we understand your struggles from both a personal and a professional perspective.
Residential, Partial Hospital, Intensive Outpatient, Individual, Group Therapy for Any Body
Our team offers all levels of care for those who do not need full hospitalization programs. We are experienced in treating body image disorders, anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, OSFED, ARFID, compulsive exercise, and muscle dysmorphia.
We help you dig into issues such as self-esteem and feeling a loss of control that typically are at the root of eating disorders and other self-harm behaviors. That’s in stark contrast to many programs that deal primarily with the symptoms of the eating disorder without getting to its roots.
Don’t Wait to Get Help
If you or your loved one may have an eating disorder, don’t wait to get help. In the United States alone, it’s estimated 30 million people will suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life. And nearly 50 years of research confirms that anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder.
