I believe anyone who wants to practice healthy habits in a safe place, and who can accept real change in their life should consider Omni for therapy. You will thoroughly enjoy the people who work at Omni, learn healthy eating practices but most importantly, push yourself to live your life in recovery.
Being obese, I never thought I would find myself at a clinic for eating disorders. I always thought they were for folks who suffered from anorexia and/or bulimia. Yet that’s exactly where I found myself in July of 2017. I was on another diet struggling, again, when I was approaching the 50 pound weight loss mark. I was feeling lost and hopeless. The physician’s assistant that I was seeing asked if I would like to see someone who specialized in therapy for eating disorders. I immediately said yes and was offered the choice of seeing a private therapist or going to Omni Inventive Care.
I chose Omni. I set up an appointment and was scheduled with Katie Jones. I had no idea what to expect. I had seen therapists before but none that specialized in eating disorders. I was at a place in my life where my panic and anxiety were taking over and that made almost everyone ‘unsafe’ to talk with.
With Katie, however, I feel completely safe sharing all of my struggles. Because of that, Katie has helped me in ways no other therapist has been able to. She has been able to help me to see how it is my brain thinks and how that is hindering me and my progress (in everything). She helps me challenge that way of thinking and step by step, I am able to change how I see and do things. Katie has been the perfect fit for me and my issues and I am very thankful for both her and Omni for providing the services they do. Without them, I would continue to fail on one diet after another and not addressing the real issues.
When I first started treatment at Omni, I was suffering from depression, low self-esteem, and an unhealthy relationship with food and my body. After several months of therapy and nutritional guidance, I was able to see a significant improvement in my mood, eating habits, and—perhaps most importantly—my self-confidence. The tools and knowledge I’ve gained from my time at Omni have been truly transformative in my ability to manage my depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem, and I could not be more thankful for the care and treatment I’ve received from everyone I’ve interacted with at the clinic.
My eating disorder destroyed my life. It infected my relationships and consumed every social interaction with an obsession about weight, and food. I was underweight and grasping for every bit of self-confidence I found in being thin. I was a shell of a human. I was physically in this world but absolutely trapped in my own head and allowing the eating disorder to steal all enjoyment out of my life. I wanted to make a change and I found the support and tools to practice normal habits at Omni Inventive Care. They have played a vital role in my recovery from an eating disorder. Support was one of the biggest components that made a difference. I have been in other programs and said before that I wish I was able to find Omni previously because they provide sufficient support to beat the eating disorder.
