Many forms or disordered eating are related to emotional eating. Somewhere along the line you have learned to soothe stress and overwhelm using food. Whether you're a binger or grazer, you are most likely familiar with feeling either in deprivation mode (you're dieting or restricting) or failure mode. Failure mode, feeling helpless and powerless in your attempts to control your eating behaviour can lead to bulimia, food addiction and binge eating. As an addictions counsellor I have specialized in Eating Disorders. Using a blend of cognitive behavioural therapy and somatic psychotherapy, I will help you change your eating patterns, stop disordered eating and develop a relapse prevention plan.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V6J 1Y9 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

As an experienced therapist in the area of eating disorders, I have found that often the greatest healing occurs through re-connectiong with the body, developing a trusting and loving relationship with it, and discovering its wisdom. When one begins to trust that that far from being one's enemy, the body is one's constant friend and guide, one's whole experience of self can be transformed. One lives from one's own core rather than focusing on food, body image, and others' evaluations, and therefore one becomes more confident and life becomes richer and freer.

I have extensive experience working with clients who are struggling or recovering from disordered eating. I work with each individual uniquely, creating treatment plans that are suited to their own experience and therapeutic goals. With disordered eating, it is about the food, but not about the food - I work with clients to identify areas where they are using a complicated relationship with food to cope with emotional issues in their lives.

In V4K 5C8 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

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.

In V7M 1B3 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

I work with people who are struggling with emotional eating and are having difficulties managing their weight. The focus is on mental health, nutrition and body work. I explore what is causing the emotional eating and find ways to deal with the underlying emotion. The foundation of my work in this area is the transtheoretical model of change but I do include a number of other therapeutic approaches including EMDR.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V5T 3H9 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

A healthy, rich, full and meaningful life- this is what we want for you. What is going on? How are you thinking? How are you feeling? How do you see yourself and the world? These are questions that we may start with in a session together when the presenting issue is an eating disorder. My approach to psychotherapy is person centered: we determine together which approach or approaches may be best, such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I also bring in some expressive arts activities to help explicate/integrate these processes.

Counsellor/Art Therapist

In V7T 1C5 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

My approach to treating eating disorders is holistic, meaning that I focus on treating the whole person: body, mind, and soul. Your treatment will be highly individualized and may include both traditional talk therapy and art therapy. (It's up to you if you'd like to try working with art or not.) While working on the eating disorder, we will also address any relevant underlying conditions, such as anxiety, depression, or trauma. Depending on your preferences, I may use a combination of modalities, including ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™. My approach is also informed by my own ED recovery journey.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V7L 3V8 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

Eating disorders are multifaceted and complex. Although food plays a central role in eating disorders, eating disorders are rarely about the food. For many people struggling with disordered eating, the effects are pervasive and devastating. The disordered eating may result in personal isolation, embarrassment, shame, disgust and most of all a sense of apprehension about the ability to regain one’s health. I will collaborate with you or your loved one to set in motion a plan that will begin rebuilding the road to recovery. Building on a desire, motivation or readiness to change are key elements in disordered eating psychotherapy. Recovery is possible!

Master Therapeutic Counsellor

In V6H 1V4 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

I have worked with many clients who have eating disorders. My clients have been helped a great deal by understanding what food represents for them. Often it is the form that they have chosen to express their unconscious self hatred and loathing. I help clients uncover the purpose for their eating disorder. It is usually not about the food. It is about how they feel when they have used food in a punitive manner. My clients learn to view food from a different perspective that is more practical and not self punishing. As my clients gain appreciation and understanding for themselves, the need to do self harm diminishes.
