Eating disorders are serious illnesses that affect every aspect of a person's life, and can lead to death if left untreated. I have treated eating disorders at the inpatient, partial hospital, intensive outpatient, and outpatient levels of care for over 15 years. Whether you suffer from anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, orthorexia, poor body image, over-exercise, or any combination thereof, I can help! We will work on interrupting destructive behaviors, and develop coping skills to manage any distress that arises along the way. Family is an an important part of recovery, and involved as much as needed. I will also collaborate with doctors and dietitians involved in your care.

I help clients with mild eating disorders that are not causing any medical complications. This might look like binge eating when you are anxious in order to stuff down feelings of heartbreak, loneliness or helplessness. I can help you learn how to manage these deep painful feelings rather than trying to avoid them by overeating. Once you learn that you can feel these difficult feelings than you no longer have to avoid them with food.

As one who has suffered and recovered from eating disorders, I know personally and professionally the challenges of recovering. I have weighed as little as 79 pounds and as much as over 200. Recovery is a journey of highs and lows, but the direction we move in in therapy remains steady. I use an individualized and collaborative approach to treatment. It is positive, supportive, and comprehensive. If I recovered, you can do.

Our early caregiver’s attunement and responsiveness to our hunger shapes our trust in the world to value us and nurture us. Although we may mature and develop on many dimensions of personal effectiveness we may for many reasons remain blind to and cling to reactive patterns of eating that reflect outmoded and ineffective strategies for regulating our self esteem, our emotions, managing stress, preserving valued attachments, etc. Within the context of a secure therapy alliance we can observe, reflect on, put words to emotional hunger and neutralize your fears of healthy strategies to feed this hunger. Eating will then be put in perspective and cease to monopolize your time and energies at the ....

Often someone who controls their food intake feels unsure of whether and how to manage other areas of their inner lives. Our work will be to discover what life area became inhibited so that your natural freedom and self-trust are restored. Inhibitions often develop when a person felt more criticized than loved as a very young person. In therapy, we will discover the young inner child who may still live according to these early life beliefs. And, we will meet the loving adult self, who can nurture and set expectations which are reasonable.

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.
