Managing an eating disorder can be long-term challenge. These disorders often coexist with anxiety, depression, or substance abuse. In many cases, symptoms can become life threatening. Counseling is the most important aspect in the treatment of these disorders. I am a proponent of a comprehensive approach that also emphasizes medical monitoring and nutrition. My treatment plans help determine your needs, and establish goals and guidelines. I emphasize: normalizing eating patterns, learning skills to improve mood and eating habits, developing ways to transform negative thoughts and behaviors, adopting relationship and stress coping skills, and developing mindfulness and a healthy life-style. I recommend group support and family therapy as a part of a...(view profile to read more)

Self/Body image is often at the root of eating disorders. Our culture provides many impossible beauty exceptions. Food can become our friend, or enemy in coping with our perceived fears and insecurities. Sometimes food is used to comfort us, we become overweight in a cycle of "trying to feeling good enough". Sometimes, we fear food and restrict, or eliminate food due to fears of gaining weight, and our body image becomes distorted. Learning to love and care for our body and self takes vulnerability and trust. I am here for you, as a safe person, to assist you in stopping the process of self shame, blame, and judgement that keeps you in a hurtful, unhealthy relationship with food.

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.

Identifying an eating disorder is often very complicated and challenging. Individuals who suffer from an eating disorder may be unwilling to accept the truth about the harmful nature of their actions.Eating disorders are characterized by a preoccupation with weight, body image, and /or food, but the reasons why an eating disorder develops are much more widely varied. We use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to treat eating disorders. This is a proven effective approach to working with this very complex issue.

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.

For clients facing Binge-Eating Disorders, concurrent with mood and/or anxiety disorders, I approach clients from person-centered, existential, and cognitive behavioral perspectives. I view BEDs and disordered eating as having it's origins in multiple areas to include addiction, emotional triggers, low self-concept, shame, and so forth. As a result, I would work with a binge-eating disordered client on the physical, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual front and educate the client on the cycle of emotional eating, addiction, and shame. In addition to working through the underlying shame, low self-concept, and low stress tolerance, I would employ practical and easy to use CBT tools.
