Has eating gone from enjoyment to a battleground? Has your body gone from a friend to an enemy? Disordered eating can steal the happiness from our lives and strain the relationships we have with others. Whether it is anorexia, exercise-anorexia, orthorexia, bulimia, or binge eating disorder, whether you are a man or a woman, the strain can become unbearable. By working in gentle, non-judgemental ways, we can create a beautiful life, leaving the disorders eating behind.

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.

Having an eating disorder is a coping mechanism. It is maladaptive, but it does serve a purpose in your life. There’s a reason that people hold onto it and end up in treatment multiple times. However, the eating disorder is not a solution. It doesn’t make you in control, the problems you are ignoring don’t just disappear, but actually are put in a holding. I can work with you what the underlying issues are.

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.

I work with people with eating disorders using and addictions model. The process is very similar with it's origins often in trauma and always in a belief that "I'm not good enough as I am". The obsession with eating is triggered by these thoughts or feelings as well as the body increases serotonin when in starvation and dopamine when we binge on food. There is preoccupation with the behavior, compulsive rituals (exercising, counting calories, binge-eating) and a cycle of shame that serves to reinforce our negative beliefs about ourselves. The work begins when we realize that we don't want to live like this anymore.

An eating disorder is part of a constellation of addictive behaviours that help you cope with an underlying issue, particularly negative feelings about yourself, which when repeated results in more negative feelings. Let us address this cycle together with understanding and compassion, and mindfulness. Treatment for your eating disorder will help you gain more insight into the emotional underpinnings of your behaviours, and work towards relaxing this stressful circle.

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.

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.
