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.

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.
