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.

Eating disorders to include bulimia, anorexia nervosa and binge eating disorder are all painful and complicated issues. I work with clients to heal in a shame-free environment. Both physical concerns of the body and emotional concerns of the heart are explored to help the client towards recovery.

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.
