David Jacobs, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Treatment for Eating Disorders, in my experience, is complex. Clients are reluctant to give up their focus (often obsession) on food and their bodies, in large part because they don't have in place an alternative coping mechanism. Treatment for Eating Disorders must address the client's core issue of lack of trust in people and move toward helping clients feel safer to rely on others. A multi-faceted approach including individual and community (support) groups can help people feel less isolated and more connected to themselves and others. Experiencing the connection (over time) of the therapist, clients can learn to trust and turn toward people and away from food and body obsession
