Most of our therapists have extensive experience working with eating disorders. We define eating disorders as any disturbance in eating behaviors. It could mean eating too much, not eating enough or any extremely unhealthy eating behavior, like binging and purging or habitually overeating. The two types of eating disorder which are included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSMIV) are Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia. Anorexia Nervosa is most often found in females and is diagnosed when a person is unable to maintain a weight of at least 85% of normal weight for their age and height. Usually people suffering from Anorexia Nervosa see themselves as overweight even

I do not specialize in eating disorders and have had the opportunity to work with many individuals who struggle with body image issues and over eating, which is another form of addiction. My work with compulsive over eating focuses on getting at what is behind the compulsive behavior. Over eating is a way one numbs to not feel their feelings. We will explore together what is underneath the compulsive behavior and select healthy, appropriate behaviors to get your needs met.

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.

Struggles with food, weight, & body image are the norm in our society. However, when it takes so much space in your head and life that you can’t really focus on what’s really important or getting through the day to day stuff is too overwhelming, it’s probably more of a problem than you think. Think about your relationships--are you connected or isolated? Do you avoid situations where there's food? Do you constantly think about how much you hate your body? You don't have to be ruled by your eating disorder! Therapy is the #1 treatment for eating issues. You don’t have to have an eating disorder to transform your relationship with food and your body.

Jeffrey Chernin, Ph.D., MFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of Mission Hills, CA

I view an eating disorder as a coping strategy (tool), and therapy is a place for you to replace this "tool" with one that is helpful rather than harmful. You and I would work together to find new ways of coping with uncomfortable feelings and situations. We would figure out what your triggers are and how to live with upsetting experiences. We might also discover that control has a lot to do with what's going on, and its roots might stem from how you were treated by your parents and other family members. So, we would also find ways for you to not only feel but actually BE more in control of your life.

Clinical Psychologist

Eating disorders greatly interrupt the quality of life for the person suffering from this complex disease. It can become the center of one's existence, creating isolation, depression, and anxiety in its' wake. My approach to treating eating disorders is to deeply understand what is at the core of the development of the eating disorder...what pain it is helping to manage...so that one to begin to understand the root cause of this addictive behavior and begin to slowly replace eating disordered behavior with a new understanding and acceptance of teh self as well as new coping behaviors. It is a complicated process, but one that can lead to long term health and recovery.

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Mission Hills, CA

If you have difficulties with your eating, there is always some emotional component. Together, we’ll examine what the psychological and emotional issues are that are involved in your particular problems with eating. This applies with compulsive overeating, anorexia, and bulimia. Even milder forms of overeating or undereating have emotional aspects, and we can deal with them. Bingeing or purging come in many forms, and we’ll examine how that may apply with you. It’s not about the diet, it’s about the dieter. It’s about the way you relate to your emotions, the people and situations in your life, and how you translate that to eating. You’re not damaged or a failure. Psychotherapy helps.

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.

The focus I use to treat people with Eating Disorders is to look and help people understand control issues, rejection/abandonment issues, proper body perception, difficulty resoving conflicts with others, and teaching them about resolving issues to do with perfection, good/bad issues and acceptance. As a result, people will learn what they can and cannot control. They will come to undersand how food is used to fix relationship conlficts and how food is used to cope with stress, anger and anxiety. People will learn new ways to cope so that food is not used to treat their underlying emotional conflicts.

If a sensitive young adult feels anxious, fearful, powerless, overwhelmed, or lonely, they may discover a degree of comfort in eating. People who binge on food frequently experience life as overwhelming. Perhaps they experience their loved ones as pre-occupied, and/or their home as conflicted, disorganized and in need of boundaries. By working with my clients to understand and attend to any problems inherent in their family system, I can help address this problem.
