If you have an eating disorder, you might intellectually know that it is harmful to you, but the compulsion to engage in the destructive behavior continues. Whether you binge and purge, or you are anorexic, most people begin these behaviors in an attempt to protect themselves or relieve tensions. It might seem to work for a while but, after a while, there is essentially no relief. You become a prisoner of the eating disorder. I have lots of experience helping people break away from these behaviors. Call me and get started today.

Our relationship with food has always been a complicated affair. It is an absolute necessity for life and yet, when we over or under indulge, this very life enhancing experience can become a nightmare. In a society that places a premium on being thin (can there really be something called a size 0?) our relationship with food has become a major source of anxiety and frustration for too many people. Refiguring our relationship to food is a difficult process that requires a supportive and respectful therapeutic environment. Many of my patients have gotten a clearer perspective on their eating habits and have learned to embrace this issue, embracing a healthier sense of self.

When you look in the mirror at your body, do you feel uncomfortable? Are you tall and so thin that you may be near hospitalization but your body still looks fat there, there, and there? Are you more than 70 pounds overweight so that when you see your body you have feelings of disbelief and maybe even (for some) disgust? Are you furious with yourself because, although everyone else thinks you look just fine, you cannot take off those last 10 pounds? Do you get up from sleep to eat or do you stuff yourself just before you go to bed? Do you gorge at the restaurant only to purge in the bathroom immediately afterward or do you wait to vomit until you get home? You can put the diagnostic labels o....

For those suffering from an eating disorder, it can be disheartening and frightening to face the many challenges of change. I understand how eating patterns can reflect deeper issues of self and relationships, and how these may well provide a sense of control and safety, while also causing painful consequences. Through a sensitive inquiry into the history and possible contributing factors to the eating disorder come surprising directions for experimenting with change, leading to healthier ways of living.

Eating disorders reflect a disordered approach to our own nourishment. In my practice I have found that this disorder develops as an early coping strategy to help deal with a disorder in the family system. In our work together we will untangle the contributing factors and develop a more supportive vision and approach to getting what you need in your life. Concurrently, we will work holistically to insure that you get the nutrition of body, mind and spirit that is your birthright.

You will learn what food habits you have adopted over time and will explore the root for these habits. You will learn how your thoughts and emotions influence the eating behavior and will develop skills to help you heal. I do not work with severe cases of anorexia and bulimia or eating disorders stemming from abuse or trauma. I do work with disordered eating stemming from emotional stress.

Eating disorders are often an attempt at control in a life where something else is not working, out of control, and in desperate need of repair. I work with individuals who are struggling with forms of binge eating, bulimia, anorexia, restrictive eating, and exercise bulimia. These behaviors may have emerged from or overlap with depression, anxiety, grief and mourning. I work both in the here-and-now and explore any history that may have aided in the development of the destructive behavior. I encourage family sessions when appropriate to aid in recovery.

If you have struggled unsuccessfully with weight loss, I will help you by looking at all the things that have gotten in your way of healthy weight loss. We will look at family, friends, and romantic relationships in your life, and what you learned about food and your body. We will uncover fears you may have that have to do with relationships and dating. If you are anorexic or bulimic I can work with you if you are not struggling with a life threatening situation. Recovered anorexics or bulimics who have more work to do in therapy to clarify the issues entrenched in their behavior, and emotional triggers for unhealthy behavior.
