For those struggling with binge-eating, food addiction, or yo-yo dieting, I would love to help. The fundamental principle that we must accept before addressing disordered eating is that it is almost never about the food, it's about the act of eating and what need it is fulfilling within ourselves. Let's work together to discover why your relationship with food has become unhealthy and come up with some ideas of how we can change it. You shouldn't have to be afraid of your refrigerator.

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.

Eating disorders include anorexia, bulimia and even over-eating. Discovering the underlying emotions and beliefs is a key part of this therapy. Issues of control, self-esteem, self image and aloneness are often a part of what is behind this disorder. My goal is to help you uncover these, and then help you accurately define who you are, find new and healthy ways of coping and interacting in your world.

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 can be life-threatening, or they can become so chronic over time that it feels as though yours will be with you for the rest of your life. Worse, is the shame you're likely experiencing about your eating disorder. I believe the shame aspect of this disease is the worst part because it causes the individual to feel horrible about who they are. All they are. Sufferers literally see themselves as an eating disorder, and not much else. What do you do? Come speak with me. I know all about them. I had one myself, and I've had years of experience working with clients who've suffered from them, too. Let's look at the behavior but, more importantly, at what it's aiming to solve.

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.

It is my hope that individual therapy will benefit clients who may currently be participating in community-based support groups and group therapy, giving them the opportunity to explore in more depth the underlying issues related to their challenges with food. Clients will benefit from exploring relationship issues with significant people in their lives. They will learn to identify inner and situational triggers that may have resulted in harmful patterns and choices in the past. They will benefit from identifying negative and debilitating thought patterns, and will develop self-affirming beliefs to move them to greater confidence and self-acceptance.

In V6Z 2R4 - Nearby to Yaletown Vancouver.

I work with clients dealing with disordered eating by helping them first identify their individual triggers, habits, thought patterns, flawed coping strategies, body image issues, and belief systems. Most people who have an eating disorder developed this as a means to cope with bigger issues in their lives such as poor self-esteem, trauma, depression, anxiety, or other significantly painful events. I work with clients to help them gain insight into the source of their disordered eating, to develop awareness around their thoughts, and to create change through teaching healthy coping strategies and processing of the source of their pain.

Eating disorders are complex and multi-faceted. Treatment of eating disorders requires an holistic approach working with the individual and his or her family and other health care providers. More often than not, an eating disorder is a symptom of some other problem. While the individual's medical health must be monitored and controlled, therapy focuses on changing thinking and behaviour patterns that reinforce the eating challenges while exploring the underlying factors contributing to the presentation of the eating disorder.

Every person is unique and I help clients to find answers that are right for them. Sometimes, just bringing one's awareness into the body, saying "hello" inside, can be new, profound, and liberating experience. Listening within the body carefully and respectfully, we work to develop a new relationship within the self. Working from this bodily felt sense, there is a physiological shift that allows change and movement out of unhealthy or stuck places.

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.

Eating disorders are complicated and complex. Having lived with an experience of a distorted body image, I have an understanding of some of the challenges of an eating disorder. To get the outcome clients want, I utilize the approaches of EMDR, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Neurofeedback (NFB). EMDR takes the charge out of rooted disturbances, allowing an individual to overcome challenging behaviours without needing to reason. With CBT, I am able to offer support while challenging distorted thoughts and dysfunctional behaviours. NFB trains the brain to self regulate, allowing optimal performance, effecting the thoughts, emotions and actions that keep an eating disorder alive.

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.

If you struggle with binge eating I can assist you to develop a healthier relationship with food. I view binge eating as an addiction to food and can help you learn how to identify your triggers, deal with cravings, and manage distressing feelings that you may be supressing with food. I can also teach you ways of soothing and coping with the emotions or situations that may be stimulating your binge eating.

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.

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.

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.

Like most symptoms, the behaviour is driven by a feeling of self loathing. So the answer is to look at the mistaken belief created by the child that there is something very wrong with who they are. When shown the truth of who they are and they learn to love themselves, the behavior is no longer necessary. Learning to love yourself is a process of undoing the identity that was made up by the child. You too, can remember your innocence
