Pamela Madsen Atlanta Eating Disorder TherapistHi, I’m Pamela Madsen. I’m an Associate Professional Counselor in Atlanta, GA. I’m  passionate about helping you connect with your strengths and use them as a springboard to help you find healing in relationships, create healthy behaviors around food and body image, reach your goals, and release negative anxiety and depression along the way. I am a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor (APC); under the supervision of Kristin Ryan, MS, LPC, NCC, CPCS.

Our Atlanta counseling office uses Health At Every Size principles to help you heal your relationship to your body and with food. Health At Every Size (HAES) rejects diet culture and weight stigma. This approach also rejects the cultural belief that weight, size, or BMI are the sole important markers of health.

Atlanta eating disorder treatment shifts focus from numbers on the scale to navigating each individual’s strengths, resources, and vulnerabilities. We ensure treatment that is unique to you, your circumstance, and the context of your disordered eating.

Your Atlanta eating disorder therapist will help you discern your own thoughts and beliefs from the automatic thoughts controlling your relationship with food. Your therapist will support you in working to heal your relationship with yourself and restore peace when nourishing your body.

Together we will also identify where the disordered eating began and the role it holds in your life. Maybe it developed as a tool to cope with anxiety or painful experiences from your past. Food may feel like the only thing you can control right now. You may even have watched a caregiver struggle with their own relationship with food and you began to internalize their own rules about eating and appearance.

Healing from an eating disorder is a holistic process with many moving parts, and at times it might feel overwhelming. We are here for you every step of the way. Please don’t wait to get the help you need. Reach out today to begin your healing process.
