Our early caregiver’s attunement and responsiveness to our hunger shapes our trust in the world to value us and nurture us. Although we may mature and develop on many dimensions of personal effectiveness we may for many reasons remain blind to and cling to reactive patterns of eating that reflect outmoded and ineffective strategies for regulating our self esteem, our emotions, managing stress, preserving valued attachments, etc. Within the context of a secure therapy alliance we can observe, reflect on, put words to emotional hunger and neutralize your fears of healthy strategies to feed this hunger. Eating will then be put in perspective and cease to monopolize your time and energies at the ....

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.

Our relationship with food has always been a complicated affair. It is an absolute necessity for life and yet, when we over or under indulge, this very life enhancing experience can become a nightmare. In a society that places a premium on being thin (can there really be something called a size 0?) our relationship with food has become a major source of anxiety and frustration for too many people. Refiguring our relationship to food is a difficult process that requires a supportive and respectful therapeutic environment. Many of my patients have gotten a clearer perspective on their eating habits and have learned to embrace this issue, embracing a healthier sense of self.

When you look in the mirror at your body, do you feel uncomfortable? Are you tall and so thin that you may be near hospitalization but your body still looks fat there, there, and there? Are you more than 70 pounds overweight so that when you see your body you have feelings of disbelief and maybe even (for some) disgust? Are you furious with yourself because, although everyone else thinks you look just fine, you cannot take off those last 10 pounds? Do you get up from sleep to eat or do you stuff yourself just before you go to bed? Do you gorge at the restaurant only to purge in the bathroom immediately afterward or do you wait to vomit until you get home? You can put the diagnostic labels o....
