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.

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 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.

When a teen experiences anorexia nervosa or bulimia, the whole family is under stress. The focus will initially be on nurturing a supportive relationship with the teen where she (he) feels understood and enjoyed. The family, especially the parents, will also be involved in enhancing communication skills and expanding on their teamwork effectiveness. Working collaboratively as a family has been found to be a highly effective approach to healing for the teen as well as the rest of the family's interactions.

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.

In T6W 2Z8 - Nearby to Strathcona County.

Eating disorders and disordered eating behaviours (ex: emotional eating, binge eating, restricting, purging, etc.) are often preceded and exacerbated by problematic thought patterns, negative core beliefs, and a poor self-image. I can help clients challenge their thoughts and beliefs, replace negative coping skills, and rebuild their self-image. Accompanying anxiety, depression, and trauma can also be addressed and managed as these conditions frequently co-occur with eating disorders.

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 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.

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.
