I do not specialize in eating disorders and have had the opportunity to work with many individuals who struggle with body image issues and over eating, which is another form of addiction. My work with compulsive over eating focuses on getting at what is behind the compulsive behavior. Over eating is a way one numbs to not feel their feelings. We will explore together what is underneath the compulsive behavior and select healthy, appropriate behaviors to get your needs met.

Eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder as well as emotional eating can be secretive, overwhelming and isolating. There can be a lot of unspoken pain and this may cause you to be very private about your experience and your pain. You may feel stuck or like a prisoner to what's going on. Recovery can be difficult. However, I have found that addressing the eating patterns and thoughts as well as healing the deeper, underlying issues helps people find more lasting change.

Struggles with food, weight, & body image are the norm in our society. However, when it takes so much space in your head and life that you can’t really focus on what’s really important or getting through the day to day stuff is too overwhelming, it’s probably more of a problem than you think. Think about your relationships--are you connected or isolated? Do you avoid situations where there's food? Do you constantly think about how much you hate your body? You don't have to be ruled by your eating disorder! Therapy is the #1 treatment for eating issues. You don’t have to have an eating disorder to transform your relationship with food and your body.
