While I do not have a specific training to help people suffering from eating disorders, I do use forms of therapy that are helpful with addressing these problems. Mindfulness and Dialectical-Behavioral therapy (DBT) offer specific skills to manage one's emotions and reactions to stress, anxiety and depression, which often underlie eating disorders. I often see patients who suffer from binge eating/emotional eating or mild forms of bulimia in addition to other problems, such as low self-esteem, history of childhood abuse and anxiety or depression. Over or under eating or compulsive exercise is a form of numbing one's pain, similarly to using alcohol, drugs, gambling or shopping.

The chaos and pain of an eating disorder is so overwhelming. Many do not understand this disorder and have a very hard time understanding a food addiction or food aversion. Do you find family members and friends not able to understand? It is extremely difficult if you are suffering from an eating disorder and have little support. I have a great deal of experience with eating disorders and can tell you that your not alone in your struggles. We will work together to find ways to manage your anxiety and depression. Food does not need to control your life any longer. You define your eating disorder, your eating disorder does not define you!
