I believe that eating disorders do not exist independently; I strongly believe that there are other issues such as depression and/or low self esteem, with the eating disorder being the only area where the individual feels a sense of control. My approach would be to assist the individual in working through the other stressors, decreasing the need for control through eating disorders. I would encourage medical care as needed. I

In addition to treating Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and other types of disordered eating behaviors, I specialize in working with people struggling with Binge-Eating Disorder and compulsive overeating. I encourage clients to examine the reasons for their behaviors and identify the underlying issues that are driving the eating disordered behaviors in order to help them stop self-destructive patterns. Using a strengths-based, Cognitive-Behavioral approach, I can help you learn how to challenge negative thoughts related to food, weight, and body image so that you can gain a sense of freedom and control in your life separate from the eating disorder.

I have experience working with clients with mild disordered eating behavior, which is most often linked with symptoms of anxiety, low self-esteem, or poor body image. As of late, Binge Eating Disorder has become problematic with a number of clients. These are challenging habits to change, and many clients need assistance, as well as someone to hold them accountable for these changes.

Anorexia is Greek for "without appetite" and Bulimia is Greek for "ravenous hunger." They are behaviors characterized by under eating and overeating. If you under eat to the point of risking your life, you are called Anorexic. If you overeat and compensate (by excessive exercise or purging) you are called Bulimic. If you overeat and do nothing to compensate, you become overweight. If you are overweight to the point of damaging your body, you are called obese. All of these behaviors are serious problems. Whether they are rooted in genetics, family history, or current emotional stresses, you need to change what you are doing with food. Please get some help today. The world is a better place with you than without you.

I work with people trying to lose weight from compulsive overeating such as binge eating. I do not work with anorexia or bulimia however. Many times the overeating is grouped along with other addictions such as drinking, smoking, shopping, gambling or drugs. Please don't hesitate to ask how I might be helpful in this area. I approach this work from a behavioral and cognitive viewpoint - but also work to get to the underlying reasons for the overeating to help maintain a healthy lifestyle.

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. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.

Behavioral and emotional assessment and etiology and maintaining factors of eating disorders, and MI/SA assessment if needed. Eating disorders are often a part of depression, self esteem issues, traumatic past experiences, coping with issues for which treatment is sought, and addressing interpersonal resolutions. Therefore, treatment is wholistic and takes into account multiple facets of eating disorders.

My focus on eating disorders is specialized to the obese client. Many clients have had gastric bi-pass surgery and possess a desire to learn new behaviors to reduce the likelihood of weight gain after initial loss from surgery. Cognitive behavior therapy is utilized along with a psycho-dynamic approach to exploring the underlying contributing factors to emotional eating. I was employed as a leader by Weight Watcher's International for five years. I assist clients that are seeking weight loss using their program as a focus for a healthy diet approach and accountability, in addition to an insight-oriented therapeutic approach to weight loss.
