I view an eating disorder as a coping strategy (tool), and therapy is a place for you to replace this "tool" with one that is helpful rather than harmful. You and I would work together to find new ways of coping with uncomfortable feelings and situations. We would figure out what your triggers are and how to live with upsetting experiences. We might also discover that control has a lot to do with what's going on, and its roots might stem from how you were treated by your parents and other family members. So, we would also find ways for you to not only feel but actually BE more in control of your life.

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.

Eating disorders rarely are biological, in other words learned responses to stress and trauma which are specialties of mine. Mindfulness is a great help to those suffering from this addiction. I want to know what has happened to make the client want to "cover up" the grief, sadness, loneliness, abandonment, or social issues causing the overeating. Remember it's not what you are eating but what is "eating you." Counseling is needed here!

Disordered eating is a fairly recent phenomenon in history. I believe it is important to consider the context in which clients are living, and the cultural ideologies and norms for body image, weight, aging, sexuality, sex-appeal. Here in the United States, is health and beauty synonymous or do we sacrifice our health in order to conform to a certain definition of perfection? I have found that perfection plays a heavy hand in clients relationship to eating. I am interested in analyzing and contextualizing perfection's presence within the very fabric of our society in order to begin to show that it's pressures are palpable, powerful, and do not belong to any single person.

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.
