As a woman, I know all too well the ways that you may find yourself in a painful relationship to food and to your body. Society's unrealistic standards and preoccupation with women's external beauty can challenge a woman's self worth at various stages of life. Perhaps this is old news to you but you don't know how to free yourself from it. In our work, we begin by listening to your body and cultivating a relationship with it. Getting to know your body on a deeper level and your full range of feelings, is getting to know you and what really matters to you. It may feel daunting or strange, but I assure you it is one of the most rewarding processes towards truly enjoying your body and food.

Even if a person with an eating disorder recognizes that their behavior is self-destructive, they often feel powerfulness to change it, because of the temporary relief that it brings. Seen, in this way, as a form of addiction, there is almost always an underlying relational component to the compulsive behavior. The problematic behavior is a very meaningful expression of some tension or conflict which has been internalized as a way of managing difficult feelings. Though we may employ specific behavioral strategies, my primary goal will be to help you identify and understand what your behavior is trying to communicate, and to resolve it so that you may have a healthy relationship to food.

I work with overeating, but do not work with under eating or bulimia. I view overeating as a way of regulating difficult feelings. While the need to calm and sooth is legitimate, the method is an indirect unskillful way of coping. I teach clients how to use their emotions to support themselves instead. Or, clients learn to seek comfort from connecting with an inner nurturing presence—or to seek comfort from someone else or an activity. I find overeating is due to anxiety, and we work, instead with the cause of the anxiety to avoid getting anxious in the first place.

While most eating disorder issues are treated by cognitive behavioral methodologies or specialized outpatient/inpatient programs, Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, PhD provide relief first and foremost for the brain of one suffering from an eating disorder----without giving them medication. We believe that the neural circuitries responsible for the compulsive behaviors with eating are not necessarily only a neurotransmitter issue but of overused neural networks that affect the harmonization, balance, and decisions of the whole brain.

I help my clients to understand how their eating disorder symptoms are attempts to communicate internal conflicts and get unmet relational needs met in a safe way. I help them express these hidden struggles and conflicts and the emotions connected to them and get their emotional needs met so that they can learn to let go of these behaviors that are on longer serving them.

I work with compulsive/emotional eaters to get to an understanding of what feelings are hiding underneath the eating behavior. Knowing about the feelings and finding other ways to deal with them is key to stopping the compulsive eating. In Compulsive Eating workshops, I use Geneen Roth's anti-dieting approach. This is about using certain behavioral tools to change eating habits. For example, not eating in the car or not eating standing up. Each person's journey through this struggle is unique and I will offer you my guidance and understanding as well as a sociological approach to how the diet and fashion industries brainwash women into hating their bodies.

The aspects that will need to be addressed are nutritional needs, medical, a healthy relationship with food and to get to the root causes off life and its challenges and how to cope effectively and efficiently. The effective treatment tends to be a combination of therapy, nutritional assessment and counseling and support group.

The journey to recovering from an eating disorder starts with admitting you have a problem. Clinging to the belief-even in the back of your mind-that weight loss is the key to happiness, confidence, and success must be let go. Old habits are hard to break. The eating disorder behaviors you have learned, whether anorexia, bulimia, or overexercising can be unlearned if you are motivated. It is also about rediscovering who you are beyond your eating habits, weight, and body image. I believe that eating disorders arise from a variety of social, cultural, environmental, and interpersonal issues. Treatment is given with in a non-judgment and compassionate manner.

You don't have to have to be emaciated or eating all the time to know you have a problem with eating. You might have a problem identifying what you need and your default way to self-soothe is controlling food intake or eating too much. The time to get help is when you notice your eating habits are not healthy. Get therapy to figure out what you are feeling and needing so you can take care of your eating habits in a healthy way and have control over your life again.
