OVERCOME BODY-MIND STRUGGLES
DR. MATTHEW PALDY
SELF-CARE IS NOT SELFISH. YOU CANNOT SERVE FROM AN EMPTY VESSEL
I Don't Like the Way I Look, and Losing Weight is the Only Way to Change That.

Disorders involving the body-mind relationship, also known as psychosomatic disorders, emphasizes the importance of understanding your mind's "central organizing principles," your sense of self, how it has developed over time, and how you relate to yourself and others. Often, psychosomatic disorders arise from disturbances in the development of a cohesive sense of self. I can help you to understand your eating or body-mind disorder and together we can get you to a better place.

YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE. YOU ARE NOT A PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED.

You may have difficulty regulating your self-esteem and maintaining a stable sense of self. You may experience disruptions in your relationships with others, leading to a sense of emptiness, isolation, and inadequacy. In an effort to cope with these feelings, people can develop physical symptoms, such as pain or other bodily sensations.

YOU ARE IMPERFECT, PERMANENTLY AND INEVITABLY FLAWED. AND YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
I'm Afraid of Gaining Weight and Losing Control of My Body.

Often, psychosomatic disorders can be understood as attempts to restore a sense of wholeness and cohesion to the self. The physical symptoms serve as a way of communicating your emotional distress and need for attention and care. In some cases, psychosomatic symptoms may also serve to protect you from overwhelming emotional pain or trauma.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN YOUR STRUGGLE. THERE IS HOPE, AND THERE IS HELP
The Way We Relate to Ourselves Determines Our Mood, Our Behavior, and Ultimately, Our Lives.

Treatment for pain involves helping the you cope with the pain and develop a more stable sense of self. This may involve exploring and addressing underlying emotional conflicts and traumatic experiences, as well as providing support and validation for your emotional needs. Through this process, you can learn to regulate their emotions more effectively and reduce the impact of physical pain in your life.
