You have been through a lot of very painful experiences. I’m glad you are seeking help. You deserve it.
Religious therapy is not the only option. There are many schools of therapy that can be helpful. You do need to talk to someone who has experience in both trauma and eating disorders. It is not an unusual combination so I’m confident that there is excellent help available for you. I suggest you talk with your doctor for a referral. You can also click on the “Find Help” tab on our homepage. You can search a directory of therapists who work in your area.
I do suggest that you interview a few therapists to find the person who is the right “fit” for you. Research has repeatedly shown that the most important variable for success in therapy is whether the therapist and client click. So if the first therapist you see doesn’t seem to understand you, do give yourself the gift of looking further. It is worth the time in the beginning to look for someone you feel can offer you the support and practical help you need and deserve.
I wish you well.
