Eating Disorder Counselor

Michael Graham, MC, LPC, LISAC

Licensed Professional Counselor

4545 N. 36th Street, Suite 102, Phoenix, Arizona

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

4545 N. 36th Street, Suite 102, Phoenix, Arizona

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.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Michael Rehm, MA, LPC, CCTP

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional

4500 N. 32nd St. Suite #106, Phoenix, Arizona

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 Disorder Counselor

William Svoboda, Ph.D

Life Coach & Business Motivational Speaker

2090 S. Dorsey Lane #1001, Tempe, Arizona

Just about everybody has some kind of "eating disorder." I work with anyone who wants to adopt a healthier nutritional lifestyle. This is one aspect of being physically healthy which is one of the key bases for living an intelligent life. My general approach to nutrition is "eat a variety of natural food, mostly plant based, in moderation." This approach, especially when combined with sensible exercise, is very flexible, easy to follow and leads to more energy, better overall health and a naturally well-proportioned body.
