I have a history of working with compulsive dieters and compulsive overeaters. I work with clients to understand the underlying needs for the food and/or for the weight, while supporting clients' abilities to take care of themselves in profound ways, whether physically, spiritually, emotionally, or mentally. Clients find ways to create more nourishing and harmonious relationships with themselves as well as with food.

Body image and eating disorders stand way of other things that are more important. You can’t help being critical of the way your body is. That’s what minds do – they are critical. They have to be! But hating is getting entrenched in those self-criticisms. Letting them drive your behavior, so you end up living your life more about managing your self-criticisms than about your relationships, or your career, or your spirituality – whatever is most important to you.

Most of our therapists have extensive experience working with eating disorders. We define eating disorders as any disturbance in eating behaviors. It could mean eating too much, not eating enough or any extremely unhealthy eating behavior, like binging and purging or habitually overeating. The two types of eating disorder which are included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSMIV) are Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia. Anorexia Nervosa is most often found in females and is diagnosed when a person is unable to maintain a weight of at least 85% of normal weight for their age and height.

Eating disorders are most often a reaction to other life events. Often clients feel like life is so chaotic that eating habits are the only aspect of life that they can control. Eating disorders are also often linked to anxiety and low self-esteem. In order to treat eating disorders, I would help clients to build a more positive body image, create and implement a healthy eating plan, and build support in the family system.

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.

The focus I use to treat people with Eating Disorders is to look and help people understand control issues, rejection/abandonment issues, proper body perception, difficulty resoving conflicts with others, and teaching them about resolving issues to do with perfection, good/bad issues and acceptance. As a result, people will learn what they can and cannot control. They will come to undersand how food is used to fix relationship conlficts and how food is used to cope with stress, anger and anxiety. People will learn new ways to cope so that food is not used to treat their underlying emotional conflicts.
