Eating disorders, such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder are rooted in inability to handle emotions of fear and anger, and developing weight and food issues as coping mechanisms. EDs can have life-threatening consequences for females and males. Treatment focuses on learning new coping skills for dealing with stress, negativity, emotion regulation, and awareness of changes in attitude, spiraling thinking patterns, beliefs and choice making. Meditation, deep breathing, interpersonal and experiential psychotherapy are also part of treatment, to complement work with nutritionist for meal planning, nutritional basics and relapse prevention as necessary.

I work with eating disorders that result in obesity. I also do psychological evaluations for those who are planning to have bariatric surgery. It is important to understand the underlying causes for this to have a successful outcome. It is also essential to identify the triggers that result in overeating or eating the wrong foods. There are two phases during therapy, that of weight loss, and that of weight maintenance. I provide a nonjudgmental space to deal with this issue while treating the whole person, not the eating disorder.

I work with people who struggle with using food as emotional comfort. Whether you are preparing for lapband surgery, trying to control your diabetes, or simply get healthier emotionally, counseling can help. Many times people with eating disorders are struggling with thoughts such as "I'm not good enough" or "I need to make sure everyone is happy". I help people identify the negative thoughts that repeat in their minds and practice "fact checking" to replace those destructive generalized thoughts with the truth of the moment. As we practice being more accurate in how we speak to ourselves we can also minimize our need to escape with food.
