Eating disorders are very challenging. People who are ready to commit to working on their recovery have the best chance. ED is not about food per say. It's more about stuffing or starving feelings in oder to feel a sense of relief and a sense of control. Giving up your ED identity can be frightening. I'll teach you to use healthy coping skills and help you to figure out what your real identity is. We'll learn about distorted thinking and work on poor body image. Trust is very important, I will work to gain yours.There is life after an eating disorder. Let me help you find your way. if your not ready to recover, we can just chat.

All of us find ways to "take the edge off" of difficult feelings. Loneliness, anxiety, and stress can make us feel scared and out of control. We all search for comfort in these painful times. From infancy, being cared for and cared about has often meant being fed. Ideally, we are not only fed with food, but emotionally attended to as well. But for some of us, food has always been paired with feeling soothed and comforted. It makes sense that we would turn to food to calm ourselves even now. But it doesn't have to be this way. Together we can get to the heart of what hurts, and learn other ways to feel safe and comforted. It is possible to feel full, even when your stomach is empty.

If you have an Eating Disorder, you may be used to internalizing feelings (shame, guilt, fear, sadness, anger) rather than sharing your feelings with others. But now, its your time to share. In the warmth and security of my home-like therapy office, you will have the opportunity to talk about who you are: your physical identity, and your emotional and relational identities. Together, we will work towards healing from the inside out. There is hope for relief. I'm here to help you: call (626) 272-4908 today.

Persons with eating disorders have an underlying issue of control. They feel so unable to control all of the heavy forces around them that they find themselves lost in a world of chaos. They decided instead that the only thing they have left to do is to control themselves through food and other strange rituals. I understand and can help them to see that the rituals are not necessary. I assist them to see themselves as a whole person. This is when the healing begins.

My practice is oriented toward mild forms of dysfunctional eating, such as problems with overeating and restriction, rather than diagnosable eating disorders. I can help you to decrease emotional eating and habitual eating. I can also help to address body image, self-esteem, and behavior patterns involved in restrictive eating. Therapy will focus on overall mind-body health.

The focus I use to treat people with Eating Disorders is to look and help people understand control issues, rejection/abandonment issues, proper body perception, difficulty resoving conflicts with others, and teaching them about resolving issues to do with perfection, good/bad issues and acceptance. As a result, people will learn what they can and cannot control. They will come to undersand how food is used to fix relationship conlficts and how food is used to cope with stress, anger and anxiety. People will learn new ways to cope so that food is not used to treat their underlying emotional conflicts.

I have over 9 years experience working with eating disorders. And I have over 23 years recovery from bulimia and anorexia. The way I see it, eating disorders are not really about weight or body, the eating disorder is a symbolic way of tolerating emotional, psychological and relational pain that seems too much for the self to tolerate. In my work with eating disorders I use psychodynamic and psychoanalytic therapy as a way to discover the unconscious beliefs, thought and patterns have made the eating disorder necessary. Our work together will emphasize self-discovery and learning to tolerate and accept feelings that you may have previously used the eating disorder to manage.
