We have several expertises within the practice that can help with eating disorders, and we work as a team to provide what the patient needs. Since medical psychology is actively practiced by us, we do not shirk from confronting the dietary and health concerns that come with this area of challenge, and will work cooperatively with physicians, as needed, to improve the patient's situation. Ultimately, we beileve that the primary work is in the head, changing the way a person feels and believes about food. On the way there, however, there is a lot that can be done, behaviorally and physiologically, to effect change.

Eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and overeating can be very difficult to cope with, not just for the person with the disorder, but also for their family members. My goal is to get to the bottom of the negative self-thoughts that are fueling the disorder and building up positive thoughts and emotions in order to take the power away from the disorder.

Eating disorders are treated with cognitive behavioral and EMDR, to help us access an individual’s entire brain, and in doing so, we are accessing the holistic self: emotions, sensations, cognitions, and any other relevant material that may emerge.”EMDR therapy can help you to get out of this frustrating cycle by allowing you to feel the pain you are running from, develop compassion for yourself, and learn to accept and love yourself. This sounds simple but the process takes time and dedicated lifestyle changes. The rewards are a happier, less addictive lifestyle with more pleasure and less pain.EMDR therapy can be very helpful in recreating

Eating disorders often emerge as a response to other problems. When people are upset or overwhelmed, they develop coping mechanisms, sometimes destructive ones. Some control their eating and weight as a response to scary situations over which they have no control or fall into "emotional eating" rather than eating when hungry. Susan helps people learn the source of their food issues. By learning to manage and be more comfortable with a range of emotions and by developing a broader repertoire of coping strategies for life's challenges, Susan's clients learn to have a healthy relationship with food and with their bodies, even in a society obsessed with appearance and the "perfect" body.
