We in the United States have a pretty unhealthy relationship with food. We go out to eat in a restaurant and are served a meal that has as much fat and calories as we're supposed to eat in a whole day, sometimes more. Then we look at a magazine or turn on the TV and see stick-thin models who look like they never eat. What are you supposed to do with that? We all need food to live, but most of us also feel like we're supposed to look like those models. We want to be perfect. We want to be in control. But so often we feel like we have no control at all. If you're ready to find a healthier, more manageable relationship with food, I'd love to help.

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.

Although different eating disorders spring from different issues, food is a basic emotional as well as physical need from the day you were born. We can use it to satisfy, temporarily many other needs. Or we can pridefully deny ourselves. In addition, we live in a culture that can have very harsh, judgmental attitudes about bodies, attitudes that we internalize without noticing. You may have been told that your body image is distorted, that other people do not see you the way you do. Self-acceptance is the beginning. It is not your fault you are in this condition, although it is your responsibility to get past it. The second step is self-observance, then self-love. I can help.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.

I approach eating disorders much the same way as I approach other compulsive behaviors: I view them as faulty coping strategies (see the paragraph on addiction). Additionally, I look at eating disorder behavior as symbolic and thus help clients to understand the "story" that their behavior is communicating on a deeper level. I don't focus on things like not counting calories, simple behavior modification, or weight gain/loss. These are just details of the underlying emotional issues.

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 kevin@kevinfleminphd.com or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.

I use various psychotherapeutic techniques to address eating disorders, along with behavioral change therapy. We will identify various tools and strategies to help you to reach your goals and to maintain the healthy life you have always wanted to live.
