Counting calories becomes a way of life. You start to judge yourself harder and more than anyone else does. People say just be happy with who you are. But how do you get there when you have put this label in your head? Do you deserve better? Yes you do. A friend once said to me, " when I give you a compliment it is like a slap in the face when you don't accept it!" Do we have the right to take that away from the other person. Maybe they see more in us then we see in ourselves. I know if you are here your ready to feel really good about yourself no matter where your at with your eating habits. I'm here when your ready.

When dealing with eating disorders, we look into underlying issues and traumas associated with numbing feelings, avoiding, trying to gain control, and more. We support the client in recognizing what is going on for them physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We may use techniques such as mindfulness, cognitive restructuring, challenging negative thought patterns, journaling to increasing self-awareness, and more.

Traditional eating disorder treatments place the problem within the person. Using a Feminist and Narrative approach, I believe in unpacking people's experiences and stories. When a full picture of the problem is created, we can then understand the conditions of how the eating disorder came to be. Through a non-judgemental and non-blaming approach, it is my job to create an environment where clients can make sense of their struggles. Goals and treatment are negotiated with clients and are collaborative.

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 disorders benefit from the same or similar approach used for all addictive behaviours. One of the main therapeutic approaches I use is Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. The relationship to food can be quite complex involving societal or cultural pressures, self-image, past traumas, addictive non-nutritious junk food, media images, social media pressures, bullying. Shame and guilt need to be addressed along with peer pressures. The most common eating disorders are: Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, Pica, Rumination Disorder, Avoidance/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), Orthorexia, Purging Disorder etc. The benefits of therapy are enhanced self-image, health and well-being.

Some have described having an eating disorder as "It feels like I have an abuser inside of my head all.the.time". I would like to work with you to quiet that voice - let's identify dysfunctional thoughts, and replace them with facts. This will help to reduce your stress and will give you more functional behaviours that can help support your recovery. I will walk with you in this process and be your cheerleader and offer you the kindness and respect you deserve.
