I help my clients to understand how their eating disorder symptoms are attempts to communicate internal conflicts and get unmet relational needs met in a safe way. I help them express these hidden struggles and conflicts and the emotions connected to them and get their emotional needs met so that they can learn to let go of these behaviors that are on longer serving them.

Even if a person with an eating disorder recognizes that their behavior is self-destructive, they often feel powerfulness to change it, because of the temporary relief that it brings. Seen, in this way, as a form of addiction, there is almost always an underlying relational component to the compulsive behavior. The problematic behavior is a very meaningful expression of some tension or conflict which has been internalized as a way of managing difficult feelings. Though we may employ specific behavioral strategies, my primary goal will be to help you identify and understand what your behavior is trying to communicate, and to resolve it so that you may have a healthy relationship to food.

Whether you are eating too much or not enough, eating is tied to emotions. If you could simply restrict your calories to lose weight, you would have done it already. Talking to a therapist gets to the root of food issues and allows you to see what's really going on and to make changes. Food is not only physical nourishment but emotional nourishment at well. If you can't control your behavior around food, something else is going on. In therapy we will explore issues related to food and eating without focusing on calories or the scale.

I have been working with people struggling with eating disorders since 2004. I was training in eating disorders during my private practice internship. After becoming licensed, I worked at two intensive outpatient eating disorder centers in the Bay area and worked with teens and adults with Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder, Overeating, Body Dismorphia. I am passionate about working with eating disordered clients and treat these clients in my private practice offices.

We will look together at the onset and occurrence of the eating disorder, and discuss what you think might have contributed to it. I will ask you to journal for 10 min. first about what you are feeling and thinking whenever you have the impulse to the problem behavior for a week, whether you act on the impulse or not. Looking at the journal, we can begin to get into the triggering feelings at a deeper level. We can use EMDR, talking, body awareness and other techniques to get deeper into the feelings. Together we will come up with alternative ways to take care of those feelings, other than the eating disorder.

I use Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing to help those with compulsive eating patterns. This new way of using EMDR helps to disconnect the link between food and the feeling you may be chasing when you turn to food for things it cannot provide - love, comfort, safety, etc. Contact me for more information to see if this is the right treatment for you.

You don't have to have to be emaciated or eating all the time to know you have a problem with eating. You might have a problem identifying what you need and your default way to self-soothe is controlling food intake or eating too much. The time to get help is when you notice your eating habits are not healthy. Get therapy to figure out what you are feeling and needing so you can take care of your eating habits in a healthy way and have control over your life again.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Therapist

Finding joy in our bodies can be a challenge. I believe in working from the inside out to help you find peace again. When we focus on all that makes us whole, the external desire to be thin or perfect does not continue to take all of our emotional energy. I work with you to change your self-defeating thoughts, provide empowering information on brain science and behavior change. Never diet again. Invest in yourself.

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.

Most eating disorders are experienced by people whose lives feel out of control. This often comes from having an autonomic nervous system that does not regulate the body well. This dysregulation is based in both shock trauma (single episode overwhelming events) and developmental trauma (repeated lower grade trauma and attachment/neglect problems). I use Somatic Experiencing to help individuals to gain mastery over their autonomic nervous system and feel like they are once again back in control of their body and their life.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Zak Forrest, Zachary Forrest, LMFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Contra Costa Centre

I work with people who have previously received treatment for eating disorders and want to maintain or further their recovery. Because we need to eat to survive, we are confronted with our relationship to food every day. Deeper work on how our thoughts and emotions become represented in our bodies and food can bring an understanding of the reasons behind an eating disorder, as well as help discover new ways to manage it. I believe the way we relate to our bodies, our sustenance, and ourselves can be understood more deeply in order to live with greater compassion, acceptance, and confidence.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Esther Lerman, M.A., M.F.T.

Marriage and Family Therapist

I work with compulsive/emotional eaters to get to an understanding of what feelings are hiding underneath the eating behavior. Knowing about the feelings and finding other ways to deal with them is key to stopping the compulsive eating. In Compulsive Eating workshops, I use Geneen Roth's anti-dieting approach. This is about using certain behavioral tools to change eating habits. For example, not eating in the car or not eating standing up. Each person's journey through this struggle is unique and I will offer you my guidance and understanding as well as a sociological approach to how the diet and fashion industries brainwash women into hating their bodies.

Eating should be one of life's pleasures but it can become a nightmare if you suffer from an eating disorder. If food has become your enemy or you find that you are obsessing about food and/or body issues almost constantly, I can work with you to relieve some of your suffering. By deeply listening to your history we can explore and make meaningful links between your past and present history generating a better understanding of your emotions, ideas, and behaviors around food, body, and mind. By increasing awareness we can open up space for something new to happen. My style is warm, empathic, and collaborative and I will work hard to help you create change!
