Licensed Professional Counselor

I treat eating disorders from a perspective that addresses underlying trauma, relational difficulties, negative self-concept and boundary issues. Eating disorders are a symptom of negative beliefs about our worth and value. They are often difficult to overcome as they are a process addiction or compulsion. Process addictions are "processes" humanity cannot do without, such as food, relationships, sex and money. With all process addictions, health and recovery is found in moderation. I provide a safe, accepting and understanding environment for the development of boundaries, courage and confidence. As they are particularly effective strategies , I often use EMDR Therapy and trauma work.

The drive to maintain some kind of control, to avoid exposure, to make ourselves good enough and to manage the pain of existence can dominate a person’s life. When our primary compensation is a focus on food, and the size and shape of our bodies there is often little time to examine the underlying feelings and beliefs. Thus positive change is difficult and there can appear to be no way out of the trap. I believe there is a way and I know I can help.

Anorexia is a serious, life-threatening disorder. Individuals with anorexia tend to care intensely about meeting societal expectations and view themselves as overweight even when their weight is dangerously low. The goals with anorexia are to gently encourage the individual to see that they have a problem, to see themselves as they really are, and to develop realistic expectations and behaviors. Calorie logs and rewards can be used to track and encourage a healthy caloric intake. Overweight individuals have typically learned to use food to comfort themselves. The goals with overweight individuals are to help the individual identify their true needs and to get those needs met in healthy ways.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional

In 85018 - Nearby to Gold Canyon.

Do you struggle with food, chronic fatigue, or feeling out of control? ? I work with individuals who are open to seeing themselves in new ways. Loneliness, shame, and isolation are common underlying emotions that need healing. I also see those who are already engaged 12-Step recovery programs such as Overeaters Anonymous. For some, overeating is a learned behavior, substituting as a surrogate relationship, or else serving to keep others away. Under-eating is a way to assert a level of control. Both make sense in that they aim to meet needs for self-care but in unhealthy ways. I can assist you evaluating what your particular needs are and how you can get those needs met in healthier ways.

Eating disorders are not about food. I have had over twenty years working with eating disorders, and understand that often overeating, bingeing, purging and over exercise are ineffective ways of coping with difficult emotions. I have a particularly good understanding of the issues involved with body image for both men and women. I firmly believe that complete recovery from eating disorders is possible - you can learn to eat to live, and enjoy the freedom that comes from making friends with food and your body.
