Therapists in California specializing in Body image issues and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy

Therapy for Body Image Issues

A person’s body image encompasses how they perceive their bodies both mentally and visually. Due to continued exposure to images of “normal” or “desired” body types, people can develop a range of positive or negative emotions about their appearance causing anxiety, depression, or eating disorders. Working with a therapist who specializes in body image issues may help someone overcome mental health challenges linked to their body image.

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy

Trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy addresses emotional and mental health of kids, adolescents, and adults who struggle to overcome destructive effects brought on by trauma, which is especially devastating to youth with post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from abuse or grief. You’ll find mental health professionals who specialize in trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy listed below.
