Shelby Henderson, PLMHP
Our society glamorizes unhealthy body images and relationships with food, this has caused many people to struggle with eating disorders. The struggle is one that leaves you feeling isolated, alone, and out of control. I am here to help you get through this battle. Together we will strive to gain greater self-acceptance, positive relationships, a fulfilling life, and the best version of yourself. I help you understand the thoughts, emotions, and actions that lead to feelings of unworthiness and lack of self-control. I will work to teach you how to use your own inner strengths, positive thoughts, and relationships with others in order to achieve your goals. Throughout our work together you will have the ability to use the positive, trusting, and supportive relationship we have together in order to make the difficult changes you have been avoiding. I believe through overcoming your eating disorder that tells you that you will never be good enough, you will gain acceptance and self-growth. It is time to stop putting limits on yourself, and time to flourish.

Do you feel powerless over food? How many diets have you tried? And I’m sure you’ve even lost weight, but turned around and gain it all back again…and even gained more than you weighed before you started the diet. You are not alone. You may be struggling with a binge eating disorder (BED), but there may be addiction issues involved as well.
Food is a social event. Sharing food is greatly valued and experienced in all cultures. It is a formidable way of fostering closeness and building trust. But being obsessive with food, either eating too much or too little, is a sign of food being used to medicate one’s feelings and emotions, instead of being used as a reaction to physical hunger. Food becomes a way to soothe pain and manage stress. Buried childhood trauma (such as sexual abuse), loneliness, and anxiety are some of the hidden influences that push an overeater to pursue the safety and sedation of food. If the feeling you have in your body (or mind) can be satisfied by anything other than food, then it is not a physical hunger you are feeling.
If you are ready to take control back from food, call me today at 402-325-0117 x7 to learn more and schedule an appointment, or book an appointment online!
Leslie Seybold, LIMHP
My name is Leslie Seybold and I have a special passion for working with those struggling with eating disorders. I have experience working with anorexia, orthorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, and emotional/stress eating. Far too often food and feelings become connected as does our body image and our self-worth. Undoing those connections and establishing a positive relationship with food can be an anxiety provoking process. I recognize and respect the complexity of eating disorders and work to treat the whole person including co-occurring issues like anxiety, depression, and trauma. Diet culture is pervasive in our society and eating disorders effect those of all shapes, sizes, genders, and ages. I provide treatment from the “health at every size” mentality and strive to challenge diet culture and separate weight and food from our self-worth and feelings. Our weight may change, but our value does not. I do take a special interest in athletes and ex-athletes that struggle with perfectionism, negative body image, and high anxiety.
