With many issues in life, if you are struggling with something you can simply ignore it. Eating disorders and disordered eating are different, because food is a constant, and a biological need. Jadon Ward can help you explore your relationship with food and body image. Ultimately the goal of therapy is for you to be comfortable with yourself and your lifestyle, and that looks different for everyone.

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.

No person struggling with an eating disorder needs to face judgment for their condition. There is a reason that eating disorders develop, and more importantly, how they can be managed. Allowing a client to experience increasing levels of freedom in their life on an ongoing basis is crucial, as the core underlying issues behind the eating disorder are finally addressed. From validation to education to activation, a sequence of practical steps are necessary to ensure that progress is made and recovery complete. Call today for more information.

Eating disorders are a serious illness that cause destruction to a person’s food intake behaviors. They are characterized by emaciation, restricted eating, unhealthy body weight, fear of weight gain, and distorted body image. They may be defined as food addiction, anorexia, binge eating or bulimia. At Valiant Recovery, we recognize that eating disorders and addiction can occur simultaneously. We address eating disorders by providing adequate nutrition, promoting a healthy lifestyle, offering group and individual psychotherapy, and connecting clients to medical care and nutritional counseling.

Eating disturbances are themselves not an isolated problem but rather often a symptom of other challenges. These challenges impact children, adolescents and adults in similar but distinct ways that sometimes requires support outside of what a natural support system and/or a parent can provide. I offer compassionate and effective support and use a variety of strategies to tailor a treatement plan that is designed specifically for you, your child, and/or your family.

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. Contact kevin@kevinfleminphd.com or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.

I do a complete assessment before deciding on an approach. An eating disorder is a symptom of root causes. As in an iceberg model, the symptom is just the tip of the iceberg. Through cognitive/behavioral therapy and the use of EMDR, I target the life experiences that produce the negative behaviours of eating disorders. This is much the same as working with an addiction to a substance.

When aiding clients who struggle with eating disorders one needs to address the underlying issue that causes the lack of control the client is experiencing in their life. What are the issues, situations, thought patterns and beliefs that cause the act of the disorder. The eating disorder is merely a reaction to a bigger issue and my dedication is to help the client uncover those issues to address the concern.

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.
