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.

Disordered eating is both a symptom of deeper issues and a problem in an of itself. While eating disorders are not something I specialize in, disordered eating is a problem for many of my clients. Mindfulness training and body-emotion awareness work in therapy is very helpful for clients who want to learn to love and accept their bodies and whole selves while healing underlying emotional pain.

"How do I know if I have a compulsive eating disorder?" Ask yourself this question, Do I feel a compulsion to avoid the intake of food or to eliminate food or fat, and does that compulsion now have mastery over me? Those struggling with anorexia and bulimia feel enslaved—they know they are not free. At Crosswinds Family Counseling we have helped hundreds of people to find freedom and restore normal eating routines to those who were previously controlled by their compulsions. If you suffer from an eating disorder, call today and begin a new life journey free from false guilt and life controlling compulsions. (478) 254-3143

My focus on treating eating disorders is based on helping individuals understand why they use food as a distraction to help themselves avoid emotional pain. As with other addictions, once a person understands why they do the things they do it makes it much easier for them to implement change in their lives. Nowhere is this more evident than with eating disorders.

Eating disorders can come in different forms: anorexia, bulimia, or compulsive overeating, and may change over time. Often times it starts in the pre-teens or teens, but can start at younger or older ages. It can leave one feeling in control and out of control all at the same time. The eating disorder has the potential to take over and consume one’s life, even to the point of putting the individual’s very health and life at risk. Nonetheless, by seeking the expertise of a practitioner, there is help available and hope for change. You don’t have to stay locked in this dangerous cycle.

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.

In today's society we are now seeing more children under the age of twelve developing eating disorders. Eating disorders typically develop during adolescence or early adulthood. However, they can start in childhood, too. It is estimated that 40% of nine year olds have already dieted and we are beginning to see four and five year olds expressing the need to diet. It's a shame that children so young are being robbed of their childhoods. Eating disorders in children and teens cause serious changes in eating habits that can lead to major, even life threatening health problems. Children may also develop eating disorders as a way of dealing with the many emotions that they feel, especially those that a....
