Distorted thinking around eating, weight and food can have devastating consequences on you and others around you. By combining an understanding the underlying emotional, soul and thought-life issues (including body image and self-esteem) with behavioral strategies (I use CBT techniques among others), I help clients experience freedom and gain a sense of mastery and control over their behaviors, their eating, and their inner emotional world. Together we'll get to know the 'personality' of your distortions/disorder, learn the best ways to battle with it, and move you into freedom and wholeness. Wouldn't you rather be focused on other things? Let me help you discover how!

Emotions and eating are very closely connected. Disordered eating is not about food. It is a coping strategy that comes in a package with lots of nasty 'life side-effects'. It can impact girls or boys, and women or men -- and it thrives in secrecy and critical judgment. If disordered eating has inserted itself into your life or your family, I can help you learn more about it, challenge the dysfunctional messages it tells you, and change unhealthy coping patterns. I can help you get off 'automatic pilot' and begin to make decisions in your life independent from your eating disorder, and to risk experiencing life and all of the emotions it contains in healthy ways.

Some people have described the eating disorder affecting them as disordered eating, they have called it a faithful friend: reliable, dependable, familiar and always within reach. Maybe you have discovered that this friend is betraying you slowly and the cost of the friendship too much to handle over the long term. It is taking your life and reducing the scope of your experience, promising what it can not truly deliver - a way to manage your life. Learn how to stand up to this long term relationship with disordered eating. Learn to change the relationship with food and learn to maximize your access to healthier ways to manage and order your life.

Far beyond simple management strategies, we offer a comprehensive approach that gets to the roots of the spiritual, emotional and relational struggles that drive eating disorders. If try-harder approaches have failed and you already know more about this issue then your therapist, perhaps it's time to deal with the source of the problem and gain the skills that you can use to set yourself free.
