I help clients with mild eating disorders that are not causing any medical complications. This might look like binge eating when you are anxious in order to stuff down feelings of heartbreak, loneliness or helplessness. I can help you learn how to manage these deep painful feelings rather than trying to avoid them by overeating. Once you learn that you can feel these difficult feelings than you no longer have to avoid them with food.

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. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.

Eating disorders are about more than just the food one eats. At the Lukin Center, our therapists work with clients to target the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors associated with eating. Clients often have thoughts about their body and the way they look, feel the need to control their caloric intake in order to be perfect, or create a number of rituals surrounding food. Our therapists use cognitive behavioral therapy, one of the best treatments for eating disorders, in order to treat the person and not just the disease.

I offer a solution-focused approach that is tailored to each client’s specific needs, and is based on empirical research. I have an unusually high success rate – helping clients to achieve permanent recovery from eating disorders – from my years of experience and training in a variety of therapeutic methods. Each session is designed to address the specific concerns of the client, and is informed by my training in psychodynamic therapy, hypnosis, child and adolescent therapy, family therapy, psychology of women, feminist therapy, and men’s issues.

Eating disorders are initially attempts at self-medication for a troubled soul. Initially, the activity relieves the pain when there didn’t seem to be another option or resource. This pain relief becomes a disorder when a person develops an inner compulsion (unnoticed at first), which begins to negatively impact other areas of life. By this point, an insidious denial creeps in to protect the behavior and the chaos, both inner and outer, now runs your life. For the ED resolution, clearly one shoe does not fit all. In addition to illuminating the healing landscape for you, our focus in working together is to relieve present suffering and pave the way for the most graceful movement possible.

Over the years I have had a number of clients who suffer from anorexia or bulimia. Generally these are young women who are convinced that their misguided eating habits and distorted view of their body are necessary and "normal." Using a gentle but honest approach, I try to help them see the many ways they are hampering their health and their relationships through maintaining their disorder. In time, if they stick with my program, they work through the internal conflicts that underlie the eating disorder and begin to thrive in their personal and professional lives.

Eating disorders take life in a variety of forms -- some obvious and some more subtle -- but they always create isolation, pain, and separation from life and loved ones. I work with women and men to break out of the prison of eating and body image disorders. Whether you are suffering from rigid restriction, binge purge cycles, obsession with diet and exercise or compulsive eating, we will work together to understand the meaning of the disorder in your personal history and current life. Gently and without judgement, I will support you to take risks toward changes that will take you in the direction of freedom and a life without rules, restrictions or acting on destructive impulses.

Eating disorders reflect a disordered approach to our own nourishment. In my practice I have found that this disorder develops as an early coping strategy to help deal with a disorder in the family system. In our work together we will untangle the contributing factors and develop a more supportive vision and approach to getting what you need in your life. Concurrently, we will work holistically to insure that you get the nutrition of body, mind and spirit that is your birthright.

An eating disorder is characterized by abnormal association of food and body image. The pattern of eating is often an expression of mistaken beliefs as well as false sense of self control. An eating disorder is actually only the symptom of several underline problems in that person’s life. Eating disorders are the result of the interplay among biological, psychological, familial, and societal factors. Genetics, societal pressure for thinness and beauty, low self-esteem, and life stress may all contribute to the development of an eating disorder. Psychotherapy treatment will help you develop healthy relationship with your body and the food you eat.
