It is extremely hard to deal with an eating disorder by yourself. The eating disorder effects the person who has it, and the family of that person. Therefore, I would like to provide you with a secure and supportive environment, where we will be able to explore your thoughts, emotions, needs, desires, struggles, and questions. Together we will work on achieving a healthy balance in your life.

There's a variety of approaches to eating disorders and none of them are perfect. However, as a cognitive disorder one of the most promising treatment methods to help put the mind and body back together is cognitive behavioural therapy. CBT has a strong remission rate because it helps focus on what you can change directly and gives you the tools to achieve those changes. Amanda's clinical training was based heavily in CBT and she's well equipped to help clients make important behavioural changes with their eating disorders.

Eating disorders are a symptom of low self esteem. What is need is an ongoing psychotherapy to become aware of feelings and needs that have been repressed while attending to learning new ways of self care and replenishment. Help in providing a structure and contracts for change are also part of the treatment for eating disorders.

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.

Eating Disorders are often a sign of tremendous pressures that have been building up over time. The onset of disrupted eating patterns can have many causes, but the dynamics of an eating disorder often involves self esteem issues, body image distortions and societal ideas of beauty. The treatment of eating disorders often involves a closer look at the family dynamics too as the family unit is the stage where this battle is fought. There are many public services available, and private practice can be a wonderful addition to the existing services.

[NOTE: MY OFFICE IS IN CALGARY -- I DO VIDEO SESSIONS ELSEWHERE IN ALBERTA]. I work with clients who are addicted to food and/or who are wanting to lose weight. I do not work with people with anorexia or bulimia because I am in private practice and I am neither a physician nor do I work in a medical facility. I am, however, a psychologist with 31 years of experience who specializes in addictions.

Many people struggle with eating issues. Ultimately, food is not the issue - it is about how we feel about ourselves on the inside and how we believe others value us. Even though eating disorders are complex, we can make invaluable changes to improve life and bring peace to your thoughts. Using a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy and exploring the root problems such as poor self-esteem, perfectionism, requiring approval from others - we can change your life.

In T5N 0L9 - Nearby to Gibbons.

Eating disorder are as unique as the individuals suffering from them. I work to build on the strengths clients already have to overcome the eating behaviors interfering with their lives. Finding balance, regaining a sense of control, and developing more self-confidence and self-esteem are important to the clients I work with who are suffering from eating disorders. I see my clients as people, not as diseases and I remember that you have an eating disorder but that does not mean you are broken, it means you are a person who needs support.

Registered Psychologist

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.
