Our relationship with food expresses our most basic feelings about having a body. But those words don't convey what eating disorders feel like. Compulsions to binge, starve or purge feel like they are in control, not you--they don't respond to reason. It's a secret life-or-death battle all day, every day that no one knows you are fighting. It's fraught with anxiety--exhausting & it is hard to imagine that anything could end it. But Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a way to listen differently to the feelings themselves in order to access the story of what is really wrong, & what you truly need to calm these terrified inner parts involved in the cycle, & to create change from the inside out.

Many people have problems with food, ranging from mild over-eating to severe anorexia, binging, bulimia, food phobia, and selective eating. Outpatient treatment is most helpful with problems in the mild to moderate range. Severe eating disorders usually require a more complex treatment plan. I can assess the level of your problem and make recommendations for treatment. These can include working with me using a treatment plan that we will develop together, on a schedule that meets your needs. I might also refer you for further evaluation, to a medical professional, and/or to more intensive treatment. Contact me to discuss your personal situation and we'll figure out what is best for you.

For those struggling with an eating disorder, please hear me when I say there is hope for full healing and recovery! When working through this struggle, I take a two-prong approach: initially, as we begin to build trust and understanding within the therapeutic relationship, our focus is primarily behavior-oriented. I utilize cognitive behavior therapy during this time, which essentially looks at how our thoughts influence our behavior and, thus, correcting unhealthy thoughts can correct unhealthy behaviors. Additionally, I think it is important over time to search out the root cause that bore these symptoms in order to prevent future relapse. I would be honored to walk with you through this.

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.

Does food exert a powerful and negative influence in your life? Does food provide the comfort you do not
have in your relationships? Together, we can look at the powerful attraction that food has for you and work to overcome it so that food is put in its place: noticing when you are full, able to savor with pleasure what you eat and eating to provide nutrition and healing for your body. We will work to strengthen real self love and compassion in order to break the enslavement to food.
