My approach to eating disorders is multidimensional. Eating disorder issues vary depending on the individual but all have common threads such as control issues and addictive symptomology. I work with each client and appropriate professionals to support the elimination of disordered eating. There is a great deal of literature on eating disorders and I have found no two clients suffering from eating disorders the same in terms of history and family dynamics. There are certainly commonalities but each client deserves an individualized plan.

I work with all eating disorders except Anorexia. First, it is vital to make certain of the client's health. Once it is clear that the client is ready for therapy, we explore the patterns and habits that are being acted out. We use cognitive behavior techniques to try at trouble shoot so that there are new resources when the client is in danger of acting out. Developing a supportive network and dietary research is important for their health. A log is frequently used to monitor change and growth. Once there is stabilization, we explore the family dynamics and control which most likelyexacerbated the eating disorder. The faulty thought processes need to be altered.

Eating disorders can leave you feeling very isolated, alone and distant. Often an eating disorder starts as an attempt to have "control" over something in a persons life and by the time help is sought you can feel like you don't have control of anything. An eating disorder can be one of the easiest secrets to keep and yet is also one of the most dangerous. You are not alone and you don't have to walk this path by yourself. Together we can explore what led you to this point in your life and come up with strategies to help you break this cycle so you can live a full and healthy life.

Early trauma impacts our functioning in many ways and in different areas of our lives. Trauma in permanently stored in our brain/bodies until it is processed. Therefore processing early trauma can result in us being freed from disorders such as eating disorders as we process and "resolve" early trauma. We specialize in EMDR and TF-CBT therapies, which are highly effective in processing trauma.

Susan Purrington, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I believe forming a healthy self-image requires change and healing on several layers. Constructive and healthy behavioral changes need to be implemented, as well as understanding the underlying factors that are contributing to the disorder. Only focusing on the behavior may result in temporary change, but the true healing will not be complete until the deeper issues are addressed. Too often those struggling with eating disorders do so alone, with no one aware of what they are fighting with. Therapy is a safe place to explore and process through the painful and private layers of intense self-criticism, as well as find support for the day to day (and sometimes moment to moment) hurdles.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Buena Park, CA

With over 16 years of clinical experience, I provide a comprehensive assessment of eating disorder/body image issues in order to determine the best course of treatment. Initial interviews focus on gathering a full history of symptoms, including any/all preoccupations with weight and appearance. We will work with your physician to screen for any medical complications, as well as refer you to a dietician if you need more structure with your nutritional intake. The goal is to improve the relationship you have with food and your body, so that you can move forward with life and create lasting change.

EMDR, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, & Acceptance & Commitment Therapy have all been shown to be useful in the treatment of eating disorders. While anorexia is imminently life-threatening and is, therefore, best treated inpatient, bulemia, bulmarexia & compulsive over-eating may respond if matched well to one of the above out-patient therapies and used in conjunction with group therapy, a peer support group, or a 12-step program.
