We treat burgeoning eating disorders in children and adolescents. We understand the link between eating disorders and anxiety and work closely with other mental health professionals to form a team. On staff at Linden Oaks Hospital, there is access to programming both for inpatient and partial. Depending on the specific situation, there is also an understanding of different approaches to treatment depending upon the age of the adolescent, family involvement and time spent engaged with the eating disorder. If you come to Tompkins and Associates, you will be given choices of treatment based upon your unique circumstances and needs. We understand how this disease affects the entire family.

I often say "it's never about what it's about." This is true for so many situations (family conflict, anyone?).
It has never been more true than with eating disorders. They are NOT about the food.
Different people and different forms of eating disorders may have various causes. What is certain is that eating disorders are dangerous, and need expert care.
Talk to someone who can help. I am a psychologist who has experience --as well as knowledge and compassion.

I strive to address the emotional, psychological and cognitive issues that the eating disorder covers. If it's useful, we will discuss strategies to change the eating habits but primarily we will look at the underlying issues such as family conflicts, self esteem, anxiety and depression. We will look at your goals for your life, whether they are career, school or relational.

Those who suffer from eating disorders tend to have underlying control issues. The one thing that they have control over is what they allow in their bodies and how they eliminate much of what they eat. Many times it is related to a poor self concept and a distorted picture of self. Learning to change the view from the inside out and the outside in can greatly impact this very serious and deadly issue.

In my work with clients who have eating disorders, it is important to look at the reasons behind the eating disorder behaviors. Often times, inaccurate views of body image, trauma, and/or lack of control underly a client's eating disorder. I will work with that client to identify they "why's" behind anorexia, bulimia, binging behaviors, etc. Once a client can recognize these triggers, a treatment plan will be formulated between therapist and client to ensure that attainable goals are set out in order to instill healthier sef-image, relief from anxiety, and decreased cognitive distortions.

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
