Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

311 E. Dickens Avenue, Northlake, IL

I believe that eating disorders do not exist independently; I strongly believe that there are other issues such as depression and/or low self esteem, with the eating disorder being the only area where the individual feels a sense of control. My approach would be to assist the individual in working through the other stressors, decreasing the need for control through eating disorders. I would encourage medical care as needed. I

In my work with clients who have eating disorders, it is important to look at the reasons behind the eating disorder behaviors. Often times, inaccurate views of body image, trauma, and/or lack of control underly a client's eating disorder. I will work with that client to identify they "why's" behind anorexia, bulimia, binging behaviors, etc. Once a client can recognize these triggers, a treatment plan will be formulated between therapist and client to ensure that attainable goals are set out in order to instill healthier sef-image, relief from anxiety, and decreased cognitive distortions.

Anorexia is Greek for "without appetite" and Bulimia is Greek for "ravenous hunger." They are behaviors characterized by under eating and overeating. If you under eat to the point of risking your life, you are called Anorexic. If you overeat and compensate (by excessive exercise or purging) you are called Bulimic. If you overeat and do nothing to compensate, you become overweight. If you are overweight to the point of damaging your body, you are called obese. All of these behaviors are serious problems. Whether they are rooted in genetics, family history, or current emotional stresses, you need to change what you are doing with food. Please get some help today. The world is a better place with you than without you.
