I will look at the best approach for treating the eating disorder, based on your strengths, symptoms, severity and issues that are present. The effectiveness really does depends on being able to address the physical as well as the psychological aspects of your situation effectively. 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.

In some severe cases, residential treatment and or hospitalization has been effective

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.

Do you find yourself eating for no particular reason? Do you prefer to eat in private? Food carries with it many powerful symbols. It can be used to nurture, comfort, and strengthen. It can also be used to control, punish, shame as well as suppress our feelings. Like any other addiction, food can be used to disconnect us from our intuition and alienate us from ourselves and others. Therapy is an ideal place to explore issues and feelings around food.

Disordered eating describes a variety of abnormal eating patterns which vary in level of severity and frequency and is common during times of stress or hard times. An eating disorder can cause significant health problems and requires medical attention. Individual therapy is an option to explore the root causes of the disordered eating which can be used to create an individualized treatment plan to recover.

Eating disorders is a very complicated and serious issue which mainly occurs with woman but a growing number of men are also confronting this. We are still learning as much as we can about eating disorders and the opportunities to effectively treat and overcome this challenge. Caring psychotherapy and counseling along with behavior and cognitive therapies are currently the effective approach to reversing and managing eating disorders. It has been discovered that personal body imaging and family as well as social group messages around food, body size and body image have made for pivotal influences in the emotional trauma around food and eating. Transformation is successful with counseling.

Just as a drug addict uses drugs to cope, someone with a food addiction uses food in order to deal with their problems. I understand the other issues that often come with an eating disorder, such as poor body image, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and family and relationship problems. In my eating disorder therapy sessions, I frequently discuss nutritional considerations in our work together. You may be thinking, “What does nutrition have to do with psychotherapy or eating disorders?” Many of us bristle when we think of nutrition, because we think it means dieting or something equally unpleasant. In therapy, many emotional conditions can be dramatically helped with nutrition.

I use Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing to help those with compulsive eating patterns. This new way of using EMDR helps to disconnect the link between food and the feeling you may be chasing when you turn to food for things it cannot provide - love, comfort, safety, etc. Contact me for more information to see if this is the right treatment for you.

Most eating disorders are experienced by people whose lives feel out of control. This often comes from having an autonomic nervous system that does not regulate the body well. This dysregulation is based in both shock trauma (single episode overwhelming events) and developmental trauma (repeated lower grade trauma and attachment/neglect problems). I use Somatic Experiencing to help individuals to gain mastery over their autonomic nervous system and feel like they are once again back in control of their body and their life.

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.

Whether you are eating too much or not enough, eating is tied to emotions. If you could simply restrict your calories to lose weight, you would have done it already.Talking to a therapist gets to the root of food issues and allows you to see what's really going on and to make changes. Food is not only physical nourishment but emotional nourishment at well. If you can't control your behavior around food, something else is going on. In therapy we will explore issues related to food and eating without focusing on calories or the scale.
