Today we are talking about body image issues with Kaitlyn Gitter, LPC of Esprit Counseling.
Our youth are bombarded with images of what they 'should' look like every day all day. It is extremely dangerous to their self esteem. It's so important for parents to initiate honest conversation about body image and talk to teens about the media's affect on people and what's realistic.
Kaitlyn focuses on her clients feeling heard, she values depth which helps to push clients to go deeper and discover what is under their
symptoms in order to address the real issues and make lasting change.
Kaitlyn is a strong advocate for a client's right to a private space for reflection and self-expression where she gives them genuine, honest feedback as well as tools for change.
It's so important to have the conversation with your tweens and teens about body image; this interview with Kaitlyn will give you some ideas to get the conversation going, why it's important to model healthy body image issues and what red flags to look for regarding a potential eating disorder.
