All of us find ways to "take the edge off" of difficult feelings. Loneliness, anxiety, and stress can make us feel scared and out of control. We all search for comfort in these painful times. From infancy, being cared for and cared about has often meant being fed. Ideally, we are not only fed with food, but emotionally attended to as well. But for some of us, food has always been paired with feeling soothed and comforted. It makes sense that we would turn to food to calm ourselves even now. But it doesn't have to be this way. Together we can get to the heart of what hurts, and learn other ways to feel safe and comforted. It is possible to feel full, even when your stomach is empty.

Anorexia bulimia or obesity depicts the spectrum of problems associated with food and body image. Anxiety and depression can be at the root of the problem, but obsessive-compulsive disorder and an impulse to control ones environment can also play a part. In other words, an eating disorder is often a symptom of a much deeper issue and often involves an enabler. Eating disorders can be fatal as the person with the problem slowly becomes malnourished or dehydrated. This makes getting counseling essential in order to save a life.

My approach to eating disorders is multidimensional. Eating disorder issues vary depending on the individual but all have common threads such as control issues and addictive symptomology. I work with each client and appropriate professionals to support the elimination of disordered eating. There is a great deal of literature on eating disorders and I have found no two clients suffering from eating disorders the same in terms of history and family dynamics. There are certainly commonalities but each client deserves an individualized plan.

A safe place to talk about intense emotions for those diagnosed with an eating disorder can be of benefit as an individual uncovers the root motivations which might be linked with eating disorders. Several unresolved emotions and issues often are found at the core of eating problems, often beginning in early adolesence. Learning how to express feelings such as anger, sadness, guilt, and fear can be a freeing experience with a professional therapist.

Eating disorders is a very complicated and serious issue which mainly occurs with woman but a growing number of men are also confronting this. We are still learning as much as we can about eating disorders and the opportunities to effectively treat and overcome this challenge. Caring psychotherapy and counseling along with behavior and cognitive therapies are currently the effective approach to reversing and managing eating disorders. It has been discovered that personal body imaging and family as well as social group messages around food, body size and body image have made for pivotal influences in the emotional trauma around food and eating. Transformation is successful with counseling.

Eating disorders are most often a reaction to other life events. Often clients feel like life is so chaotic that eating habits are the only aspect of life that they can control. Eating disorders are also often linked to anxiety and low self-esteem. In order to treat eating disorders, I would help clients to build a more positive body image, create and implement a healthy eating plan, and build support in the family system.

The focus I use to treat people with Eating Disorders is to look and help people understand control issues, rejection/abandonment issues, proper body perception, difficulty resoving conflicts with others, and teaching them about resolving issues to do with perfection, good/bad issues and acceptance. As a result, people will learn what they can and cannot control. They will come to undersand how food is used to fix relationship conlficts and how food is used to cope with stress, anger and anxiety. People will learn new ways to cope so that food is not used to treat their underlying emotional conflicts.

I believe forming a healthy self-image requires change and healing on several layers. Constructive and healthy behavioral changes need to be implemented, as well as understanding the underlying factors that are contributing to the disorder. Only focusing on the behavior may result in temporary change, but the true healing will not be complete until the deeper issues are addressed. Too often those struggling with eating disorders do so alone, with no one aware of what they are fighting with. Therapy is a safe place to explore and process through the painful and private layers of intense self-criticism, as well as find support for the day to day (and sometimes moment to moment) hurdles.

Eating disorders are caused by compulsive issues stemming from buried feelings in wounds at the core of the personality. Wounds are filled with old depression, anger or anxiety and they must be released for helathier lifestyles. Rigid rituals and control issues hold us back, often limiting how truly connected we are to ourselves and to others. Why have a secret! Use tools to deal more effectively with buried feelings causing the compuslive patterns. Eating disorders limit how nourishing your life is!

Often an eating disorder starts as an attempt to have "control" over something in a persons life and by the time help is sought you can feel like you don't have control of anything.

I work with all eating disorders except Anorexia. First, it is vital to make certain of the client's health. Once it is clear that the client is ready for therapy, we explore the patterns and habits that are being acted out. We use cognitive behavior techniques to try at trouble shoot so that there are new resources when the client is in danger of acting out. Developing a supportive network and dietary research is important for their health. A log is frequently used to monitor change and growth. Once there is stabilization, we explore the family dynamics and control which most likelyexacerbated the eating disorder. The faulty thought processes need to be altered.

Early trauma impacts our functioning in many ways and in different areas of our lives. Trauma in permanently stored in our brain/bodies until it is processed. Therefore processing early trauma can result in us being freed from disorders such as eating disorders as we process and "resolve" early trauma. We specialize in EMDR and TF-CBT therapies, which are highly effective in processing trauma.
