Disordered Eating

For many patients, overeating is a way of coping with stress – an unhealthy way that ultimately causes the additional physical and psychological stress of being overweight.  You may benefit from seeing a counselor who can help you reflect on how you cope with stress and to brainstorm alternate coping behaviors.

There is a new group of Overeaters Anonymous in our area.  There are several weekly meetings:

  • Saturdays 9AM St. Paul’s Episcopal Church @ “Carriage House” in the corner of the parking lot behind the Church
  • Mondays 12pm Holy Trinity Orthodox Church-Virtual meeting available 521 Allegheny Ave Lynchburg, VA 24501

Contact Bev  at 434-426-5853 or Mary P at 434-656-1472 for more info.

  • Do you currently suffer with or have you ever suffered in the past with an eating disorder?

If you answered yes, you may have an eating disorder.  Tell your doctor so that you can be referred to a counselor who specializes in these disorders.
