About half of our adolescent and adult clients suffering from anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive eating disorders report having loving parents and a safe home environment. Clients often feel guilty about having an eating disorder when they encounter others who have a history of serious trauma. These clients sometimes feel as though they don’t “deserve” to have their eating disorder.
