Eating disorders can be one of the most challenging and discouraging addictions to break. With other forms of addiction, people can avoid the substance. But we eating disorders - you have to face your struggle every time you eat. We work with (out patient) individuals to find hope, freedom, and joy in the eating process. It's important to identify the core problems and triggered associated with the over-eating, under-eating, or purging. We are gentle in our approach, never shaming or critical, and seek to understand the person as a whole. When appropriate we work collaboratively with medical doctors and nutritionists towards seeing health be a reality in our clients' lives.

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.

In working with clients with eating disorders, I use cognitive behavior therapy. Usually the struggle with food is only a symptom of a larger battle inside. I encourage a treatment team approach where the therapist, psychiatrist, and dietitian are all on the same page regarding the treatment plan and progress.
