I have worked successfully with some over eaters, comfort eaters and mild bulimics. If you struggle with Anorexia, or severe bingeing/purging,you need to look for a professional who specializes, or perhaps an inpatient facility such as Remuda Ranch. I can help you work on some underlying issues, but you need a treatment team including a dietician perhaps, Dr, and others depending on your circumstances.

Human beings develop habits, and rituals, and addictions to cope with stresses and trauma and emotional pain in living. We compulsively seek to be in control and relieve our tension. A part of the “old brain,” or our primitive defenses, may compensate for emotional pain by prompting us to eat too much, or not enough, or by binging and purging. Once a pattern gets started it becomes more habitual and it is difficult to stop. This is sometimes complicated by a distorted body image where a person thinks he/she is too fat even when normal weight. As a therapist, my approach is to develop a trusting rapport where we can talk about what the client is thinking and feeling about their eating and abo

Whether severely restricting calories, overeating or caught in the binge/purge cycle, if some deep hurt or experience of abuse or trauma is causing you to use food to cope with hard emotions and low self esteem, my treatment approach is helpful. By examining what has happened, reconstructing beliefs and thoughts about it, strengthening your ability to assertively speak up during inner and interpersonal conflicts, and addressing other difficult emotional triggers, my clients learn how to hold strong boundaries, voice needs appropriately, repair self-esteem, and restore more control over what happens to them. You CAN transform your relationship to food. Visit my website for more detail.

Eating disorders -- such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder – include extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding weight and food issues. Eating disorders are serious emotional and physical problems that can have life-threatening consequences for females and males. The most effective and long-lasting treatment for an eating disorder is counseling, coupled with careful attention to medical and nutritional needs. Ideally, this treatment should be tailored to the individual and will vary according to both the severity of the disorder and the patient’s particular problems, needs, and strengths.

While most eating disorder issues are treated by cognitive behavioral methodologies or specialized outpatient/inpatient programs, Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, PhD provide relief first and foremost for the brain of one suffering from an eating disorder----without giving them medication. We believe that the neural circuitries responsible for the compulsive behaviors with eating are not necessarily only a neurotransmitter issue but of overused neural networks that affect the harmonization, balance, and decisions of the whole brain.

Today, eating disorders are spread throughout classes, races, ethnicity, and subcultures. Eating disorders are determined by multiple factors: individual personality traits, physiological predispositions, family patterns, critical experiences such as loss or abuse, the sociocultural influences of gender roles, and the meanings ascribed to food, weight, and appearance as well as the addictive quality of modern day foods. Family & individual therapy can help the whole family system, relieving the blame, self-degradation, & confusion for the individual and gives the family clear guidelines of how to help. The goal is to use food as nourishment & develop satisfying connections with loved ones
