In order to address eating disorder, I work collaboratively with clients to explore the psychological factors that serve both as underlying causes and those that maintain the problem in the present. Together will focus on improving personal relationships that exacerbate the disorder, such as those with family, peers, and spouses or partner relationships. Sometimes helping patients to cope with a painful or traumatic event that triggered the disorder can be effective as well. Including family members or significant others into the therapeutic process may help to prevent relapses by resolving interpersonal issues related to the eating disorder.

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....

The book I wrote is called THE THIN BOOK and it is essentially the most a compilation of my most effective and successful hypnotherapy transcripts for weight management and weight loss. It has been translated into six languages and contains a CD in which I do several of the trances from the book. I also use guided energy and psychotherapy techniques such as ego-building with my eating disorder clients.

Compulsive overeating is triggered by poor eating habits, emotional and psychological stresses (anxiety and depression) and making poor food choices. In order to lose weight permanently you must change your thinking about yourself and your relationship to food. Food can serve many functions: companion, distractor, means to avoid emotions and activity. In the 20 week "Mind Set Program" you will learn how: your emotions and thoughts set you into motion to overeat, to eat in a healthy manner promoting weight loss and a healthy attitudes towards food, and create your "personal healthy environment" where you incorporate exercise and nutritious foods into your daily life.

Body image, unhealthy eating patterns and low self esteem all affect the way we treat our bodies. Our bodies are meant to be there to protect us and make us feel safe; but sometimes we have a hard time taking the best care of ourselves in the way that would be best. Id like to help you gain insight to what is going on; to understand why you may be choosing choices that may be hurting you in some way. Lets explore and understand, while gaining skills so you can better function-wholesome with you body, mind and soul.

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 or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.

If you are thinking about addressing an eating disorder, please consider contacting me. Eating disorders are different, but many have serious medical risks. I am not an alarmist and will work with you collaboratively to ensure you and I share goals for therapy. Since I worked for years in a research center's weight loss program for years, I receive many eating disorder referrals. Of course, losing weight is not what every case calls for, but regardless, many of the principles and knowledge required to lose weight, can also help people learn to accept gaining a little weight and even accepting themselves and how they look. I approach eating issues in a comprehensive or holistic manner.

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.

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.

Treating eating disorders requires that we examine other contributing painful factors besides food itself. Problems with self image, maintaining control, especially in transitional life stages, family relations and past trauma may trigger difficulty in regulating eating habits. I have specific professional training and personal experience in dealing with the role eating plays in our daily existence. I offer understanding and support for your struggle to maintain healthy habits while feeling pressured.
