Find Fat Postive Therapists & Counselors in Smyrna, GA.

 

If you’ve previously struggled with social norms about weight and body-image, a fat-positive therapist can help. The Fat Acceptance Movement, founded on body positivity, inspires others to accept and even celebrate their fatness. However, seeing others love themselves is not always enough.

It could take help from a licensed, professional fat-positive therapist to help you improve your self-esteem and empower you to fully embrace and love your body just as it is. Whether you are located in downtown Smyrna, the suburbs of Smyrna, other nearby places such as Marietta, Atlanta, or anywhere else in Georgia, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Benefits of a Fat-Positive Therapist

Most therapists are equipped to help you sort through common problems like depression, anxiety, and PTSD. But when you’re fat, there’s a possible element of shame and social anxiety that can take over and effect your therapy experience.

In addition to providing traditional behavioral health treatment, a fat-positive therapist can provide:

  • A non-judgemental haven for you to articulate your feelings and problems.
  • Encouragement to improve your self-esteem and love yourself the way you are.
  • Practical methods and tips to help you cope with social stigma and anxiety.

For an example of how a fat-positive therapist can help, read licensed therapist Brianna Ramon’s tips for fighting back against fat-shaming culture.

Don’t let shame, low self-esteem, or social expectations drive you. Instead, see a fat-positive therapist to help you love yourself and your body. With Mental Health Match, finding a qualified fat-positive counselor or therapist is easy! Start by browsing experts below or by using our free therapist matching tool.
