Eating disorders are complex and require an integration of CBT, ERP and family support. Treatment is tailored to each individual since the needs are varied and diverse. Eating disorders impact the family as well as the individual and benefit from both receiving counseling to bring about healing. Research continues to inform best practices for eating disorders.

My approach to treating eating disorders is that they need to addressed with compassion and genuineness. Eating disorders are very misunderstood by most therapists. I have specific experience with eating disorders and how to help you successfully identify and examine the roots of your emotions that relate to your behaviors. You deserve to be heard, understood and helped.

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.

The complexity of eating disorders requires a safe environment where empathy, cognitive restructuring, nutritional understanding and motivational techniques are intertwined to help the individual receive the support needed for recovery. The family is integral to this process and is encouraged to take part in sessions. Additional resources are enlisted to provide maximum support.

I show people with weight and eating disorders to first fully accept themselves with their problem. It is important to eliminate any shame, guilt and anxiety associated with an eating disorder. I then move onto the primary problem which is the eating disorder. Patients learn the critical role their thinking plays in perpetuating their disorder. I quickly focus in on core beliefs that are at the root of their problems. Together we work to modify these beliefs and replace them with healthier beliefs about eating, one’s body, coping with personal traumas, and engaging in sensible exercise. I teach self-control strategies that help them cope and avoid self-defeating eating behaviors.

Eating Disorders are often very misunderstood. Like addiction, many think the behavior is a choice. Unfortunately, once a person has crossed the line into a true eating disorder they no longer are in control even though that is often just what they were searching for to begin with. I help clients find recovery through empathic counseling. It is possible to find peace with your body and within yourself. Hope is here.
