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.

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.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

2328 W Joppa Road, Suite 10, Lutherville, Maryland 21093

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.

The binge and purge cycle can take over your life: low self esteem (combined with poor body image) can include intense feelings like you cannot stand yourself or is too hard and you cannot control it. I offer help to end this cycle compassionately and effectively with EMDR therapy. We will focus on your triggers and improving your self concept. You can change and take control in a positive way.

Eating disorders are a broad spectrum of “too much” behaviors. They can stem from always seeing that image of that potato chip and not being able to say “no”. Or they may be much more serious. Indeed in my 20 year experience, eating problems are not usually related to food, but are related to unresolved or suppressed emotions. Using advanced techniques, we aim for a personal and confidential release of those emotional weights, freeing you to make healthier and ultimately beneficial choices.

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.
