The Proactive Approach®

Holistic Interventions

The way we think, feel, and view our body is critical to our health. We will work to improve our self-perception through a whole-body perspective. Body dysmorphia can take over and lead to depression, anxiety, and/or more. We'll use a wide range of tools, including medication if necessary.  

& Coaching Support

Talk therapy and coaching are the most important components of treatment for body dysmorphia. The way we think and feel about ourselves is habitual.  We will work to retrain out thoughts, create a foundation of self-respect, and develop a healthy relationship with our bodies. 


& Biological Testing

Certain treatments and approaches work differently for each person. Tailoring medications, supplements, and therapies to fit your unique situation is important to overcome pervasive disruptive thought patterns that lead to body dysmorphia. Analyzing your genetics and biology helps us select treatments with a higher likelihood of success. 


Simple Treatment Plans

We will address body dysmorphia in a simple and effective way utilizing evidence-based techniques.  Establishing a manageable treatment plan that is not overwhelming will foster long-term success and drive lasting change.
