Eating Disorders comprise a group of conditions characterized by emotional distress and compulsive behaviors related to food. Anorexia refers to the compulsive restriction of calorie intake often accompanied by an intense fear of evidencing any body fat. At times such individuals develop perceptual distortions in which they perceive themselves as fat despite being evidently underweight. Another Eating Disorder is Bulimia in which individuals compulsively cause themselves to vomit to prevent calorie intake. Some bulimics eat large quantities of food, referred to as binging, prior to purging through vomiting. A third Eating Disorder is compulsive overeating in which individuals consume far more calories than needed which can be driven by a number of unmet...(view profile to read more)

I do not abide by universally accepted BMI's or stereotypes regarding dress size. A client should be happy with their figure the way they are. If not, they must curb their addiction to food. Portion control seems to work well along with music therapy. It used to be thought that listening to the radio boosts appetite at mealtimes. By the same token, discontinuing the music can help a heavy person reduce.

For some people compulsive eating or dieting is just a way to get rid of bad feelings. The problem is that the bad feelings always come back. Compulsive and addictive behaviors - like obsessive and compulsive disorder, gambling, sexual addictions, eating disorders, cutting, etc. - can work very much like alcohol and substance abuse. They are ways of controlling strong emotional reactions of anxiety, anger, sadness, loneliness or guilt. I use 90-minute and 3-HOUR SESSIONS to identify and fully resolve the roots of your emotional reactions so that they no longer trigger the urge to self-medicate.

I will help you change your relationship with food. Emotional connections to food are life-long. We will be very patient in how we view each small success, while also preparing for setbacks when trying to change any behavior. Learning to tolerate and manage distressing emotions is essential to having a healthier food and/or body relationship. We will shift from the obsessive thinking and behaviors patterns which have left little time for anything else. Contact me to discuss how counseling can work for you.

The work I do with eating disorders is a highly compassionate approach, exploring with the client what the stressors have been in their lives to bring about this condition which can be very painful, debilitating and affect the entire family. We are complex people and getting to know the various aspects, thoughts, feelings of the client that leads to disordered eating can often bring about resolution and restore wholenss and balance.

Eating disorders relate to interpersonal power and control dynamics in family life, and so in working with eating disordered people I do both individual psychotherapy, and strategically request that various family members participate in treatment. Often, an eating disordered person is a child of a family sytem in which boundaries have become weak, and issues that pertain to the marital system of the parents affect the mental health of the child in this way. I will help you and your family look at all these issues and work toward strengthening boundaries so that the needs to assert control in such a dangerous way remits.

For eating disorders, my view is that there can be different causes that fuel the problem. Is it a chemical imbalance? Is it a family problem? What's underneath the problem? Is there a deeper issue that needs to be uncovered that can create change? Who else is being affected by the disorder? How has this symptom affected the larger system? I can't say I have one technique or strategy because I believe there is more within the story that needs to be heard in order for change to occur.
