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.

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.

In my professional experiences I have come to discover many clients who struggle with eating disorders are on a deeper level unaware of the unresolved grief and loss as well as a tremendous sense of powerlessness, anxiety, depression and or trauma from past experiences. You do not have to feel powerless any longer. Take control back of your past, your present and your future. Please call or text me today.

Therapeutic work that addresses eating disorders can involve exploring the origins of problematic eating, including experiences, thoughts, behaviours, and emotions, not only around eating and food, but also body image and self-worth. Therapy will also likely include a psychoeducational component to help the individual to gain a better understanding of their unique experience of disordered eating.

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.

Never thin enough. The number on the scale defines self-worth. These are just a few phrases I hear clients use when struggling with an eating disorder. Rarely is an eating disorder about weight or food or image. The underlying issues revolve around control and safety and vulnerability. Together, we can work towards establishing healthy attitudes and boundaries with self, others, and food.

Recovery from disordered eating is possible, but not easy. Paradoxically, when we try to control food and eating, we often feel out of control, which can lead to binge eating, starving and obsessing about food. The more we try to control, the less control we have. Change happens when we learn to listen to our bodies, eat balanced foods, and challenge unhealthy beliefs. When we trust and listen to our bodies, we naturally want to exercise, we want to eat healthy and we don't worry or even think of dieting. This is not a short term solution, but with commitment, the results can be amazing.

In this crazy busy world finding time to eat healthy can be difficult. We provide support for individuals who are emotional eaters. What is an emotional eater? Put very simply, it's someone eats to avoid dealing with their feelings. Some people understand and recognize that they do it and others tend to be in complete denial about it. We assist people in recognizing, identifying their emotional eating habits and teach them to learn how to cope with their feelings in a healthy, and more satisfying way.

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.

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.
