What is Intuitive Eating?

Intuitive eating is a non-diet approach to food that focuses on listening to the body and respecting its needs. It helps people who may have struggled with cycles of dieting realize that the desire to eat food that satisfies us is natural and healthy. Intuitive eating aims to help you cultivate a more positive relationship with food and with yourself.

The principles of intuitive eating are based on the idea that we’re all born attuned to the needs of our bodies. Intuitive eating teaches you how to listen to your body’s wisdom once again. The concept was created by Elyse Resch and Evelyn Tribole, two registered dieticians who went on to publish a book on Intuitive Eating.

How It Works

Sessions are held in small, in-person, closed groups – once we start our dive into Intuitive Eating, you’ll be with the same people for the duration of the group. Looking for virtual options? No problem! Reach out to learn more. If you’re ready to take this step, contact us to find out the next start date for this group.

Self-Esteem for Teens!

Teenagers today are growing up in a time like no other in history. From navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, to living with increased access to social media – and everything in between – many factors contribute to low self-esteem.

Our teens are developing unrealistic expectations for themselves, questioning their acceptance and worthiness within their peer group, and experiencing social anxiety on unprecedented levels. Our small teen group focuses on building self-esteem in a supportive, non-judgmental environment, better preparing them to face these difficult, but common, challenges.

Teenagers are trying to figure out their identity while striving to fulfill their desire for meaningful relationships, all while preparing to take significant steps in life. We aim to connect teenagers with a sense of what’s important to them. Throughout our time together, we’ll work on equipping them with the decision-making skills and confidence to pursue their dreams and feel empowered in their day-to-day lives.

We’ll discuss specific barriers to positive self-esteem, such as:

  • Negative peer pressure and societal influences
  • Difficulties with self-advocacy
  • Feelings of shame, guilt, or low self-worth
  • Anxiety, depression, and other contributing factors

And work with your teen in our small group setting to:

  • Exercise self-compassion daily
  • Learn how to take care of ourselves before others
  • Identify people with whom we can be our authentic selves
  • Regulate overwhelming emotions

During their time with us, your teen will receive support from people their age who are working through similar feelings while also receiving guidance from an adult who’s not a family member. Working on low self-esteem in a small group setting can set teenagers up for long-term success in all areas of life, from maintaining healthy relationships to setting and achieving goals.

How It Works

Sessions will be held in small, closed groups – once we start our small group meetings, they’ll be with the same people for the duration of the group. While we encourage in-person participation, we understand that starting virtually may allow for easier initial engagement. Let’s talk more about your teen’s specific needs! If you’re ready for your teenager to take this step, contact us to find out the next start date for this group.

Young Adults Building a New Chapter!

Inspire Behavioral Health’s young adult transition group is designed to meet the needs of adults in their 20s who are taking the next step, whether it be related to school, work, or changing relationships.

There’s no denying that young adults today face many challenges. From graduating during a global pandemic, struggling to find fulfilling work, or building meaningful relationships outside of school – closing the gap between how you thought your life would play out and how it’s actually playing out can be emotionally taxing and disorienting.

We aim to empower you with the skills to confidently build the next chapter of your life – from developing a rewarding career path, transitioning to independent housing, and actively seeking new, healthy support networks. During the journey, we will address any challenges head-on together, with the support of like-minded peers.
