I view eating disorders as process addictions. I view addictions and compulsions as coping strategies that persist because they work (or once did); but are being identified as disordered because they no longer help the client cope they way they once did. So, sourcing the root of the disorer is essential. There are also specific strategies for altering habitual behaviors that can be quite useful as the client turns from a failing method of coping to one that in fact functions and permits personsl growth toward self-actualization.

Our relationship with food can get really complicated! Food is intended to nourish us and keep us healthy, but a unhealthy relationship with food can easily develop. Frequently food becomes a coping mechanism for dealing with stress, anxiety, perfectionism and self-hate. It is when you start to address the underlying causes of destructive eating and begin to value yourself more that you can start to develop a healthier relationship with yourself and food.

Eating disorders benefit from the same or similar approach used for all addictive behaviours. One of the main therapeutic approaches I use is Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. The relationship to food can be quite complex involving societal or cultural pressures, self-image, past traumas, addictive non-nutritious junk food, media images, social media pressures, bullying. Shame and guilt need to be addressed along with peer pressures. The most common eating disorders are: Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, Pica, Rumination Disorder, Avoidance/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), Orthorexia, Purging Disorder etc. The benefits of therapy are enhanced self-image, health and well-being.

Starting as early as in grade 2, our youth are deeply affected by the issues of body evaluation and peer acceptance. More and more kids are falling into despair because they don’t know how to combat the pressures of going along with what others might consider normal, or because they don’t have the tools to fight against the moments of low esteem/confidence that are a regular part of youth development. Dealing with eating disorders requires a two prong approach - the physical aspect of the disorder must be addressed, as does the psychological aspect of the issue. Tools for healthier resiliency must be developed.

Eating disorders can manifest in a number of forms; including over eating, bulimia and anorexia. A therapist is an integral part of your treatment. Our relationship with food is usually not just physical, but emotional as well. If your emotional relationship with food is not addressed it is difficult to make lasting changes. Often people deal with unpleasant feelings by eating or not eating. I will help you to address feelings and deal with them in a more constructive manner.

Eating disorders, whether this is in the form of anorexia, bulimia, or compulsive/emotional eating, can be seen as an unheatlhy coping mechanism for stress and life difficulties. I work with clients to identify the issues they are experiencing, and replace their maladaptive coping methods with more healthy ones. This would include working through unresolved issues, identifying difficulties with control, establishing more assertiveness and healthy boundaries, learning the appropriate expression of feelings, and working through body image issues. We would also work towards identifying triggers for disordered eating, and then put coping strategies in place for when these occur in the future.

I help clients overcome addictive relationships with food. Like all addictions, the behavior is the tip of the iceberg, used to cope with underlying thoughts and emotions. Through collaborative conversations, clients gain insight into underlying concerns, gaining coping skills to more effectively navigate these issues. I draw on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI), helping clients achieve a sense of freedom and control over their lives, leading to long-term change.

In today’s society, we’re surrounded by messaging that focuses on physical appearance and rewards certain types of appearances over others. This makes it hard to accept our body and can impact the way we feel about ourselves. Our beliefs around body image are important as it impacts our mental and physical health. While the media portrays a certain body type, this doesn’t cause an eating disorder. How we think about those messages and apply them to our lives is what affects our self-esteem and self-worth.

I specialize in treating eating disorders, binge-eating and self-esteem/body image concerns. Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, I help you to understand the function of your eating disorder, and to find healthy ways to meet this need that the eating disorder was providing. I can assist you in better understanding how eating disorders work, and help guide you on your recovery. This type of support can benefit you as people with eating disorders often live in isolation with shame, so beginning to talk about the eating disorder is the first step to finding recovery and to no longer hiding alone.

Sometimes we deny our needs and this can include our need to eat. The problem is the control others might have over us if we are to reveal our needs. Exploring the need to express our needs and have control over our lives increase our ability to choose. The tangible we create with our bodies that mirror this dilemma can take many forms, but the healing comes from reconnecting to our needs. I have successfully worked with people from a variety of backgrounds to treat a variety of eating disorders and look forward to working with you.

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.
