Body Image Counseling

In a culture that places too much value on superficial attributes, it is common to compare yourself to who you see on the cover of a magazine or on the big screen. What many fail to realize is that the images they see in the media are almost always digitally altered and enhanced. The comparison is not only unfair, but it is unrealistic. It provokes a skewed perception of what outer beauty is and how much it is valued. This distortion of body image can result in poor self-esteem, and can lead to even more serious problems such as eating disorders and depression. Our counselors are here to give you the tools to overcome the issues you have with your self-image, and to help you understand the importance of being comfortable in your own skin.
