Life Cycles Counseling with Dr. Adina Silvestri

Eating Disorders Counseling

Why Can’t the Way I Eat Align with the Way I Think and Live?

Eating Disorders Counseling Services at Life Cycles Counseling

You workout daily. You care about nutrition. You do the research to know how to best care for your body. But you can’t figure out why you keep repeating these patterns and habits that you’d be mortified if anyone ever knew about.

Whether you find yourself yo-yo dieting, having to workout hours a day to try to work off your food habit, binging on foods that make you feel terrible the next day, or having to use pills or purging to try to limit the impact of your food habits, I can help.

My name is Adina and I work with high-achieving smart women who want to make peace with food, their body, and get the way they treat their bodies aligned with what they truly want from life.

You will find a no-judgment, kind, no-nonsense zone where we can be real with one another. Let’s have real conversations that can lead to real change. Give me a call at 804-536-9143 for your free 15-minute phone consultation for counseling in Richmond, VA. I work with people who are nutrition conscious and I help individuals eliminate shame to find hope and healing. I specialize in eating disorder treatment, which includes binging, purging, and restricting food.
