EMDR, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, & Acceptance & Commitment Therapy have all been shown to be useful in the treatment of eating disorders. While anorexia is imminently life-threatening and is, therefore, best treated inpatient, bulemia, bulmarexia & compulsive over-eating may respond if matched well to one of the above out-patient therapies and used in conjunction with group therapy, a peer support group, or a 12-step program.

I work with all eating disorders except Anorexia. First, it is vital to make certain of the client's health. Once it is clear that the client is ready for therapy, we explore the patterns and habits that are being acted out. We use cognitive behavior techniques to try at trouble shoot so that there are new resources when the client is in danger of acting out. Developing a supportive network and dietary research is important for their health. A log is frequently used to monitor change and growth. Once there is stabilization, we explore the family dynamics and control which most likelyexacerbated the eating disorder. The faulty thought processes need to be altered.

Eating disorders greatly interrupt the quality of life for the person suffering from this complex disease. It can become the center of one's existence, creating isolation, depression, and anxiety in its' wake. My approach to treating eating disorders is to deeply understand what is at the core of the development of the eating disorder...what pain it is helping to manage...so that one to begin to understand the root cause of this addictive behavior and begin to slowly replace eating disordered behavior with a new understanding and acceptance of teh self as well as new coping behaviors. It is a complicated process, but one that can lead to long term health and recovery.

I believe forming a healthy self-image requires change and healing on several layers. Constructive and healthy behavioral changes need to be implemented, as well as understanding the underlying factors that are contributing to the disorder. Only focusing on the behavior may result in temporary change, but the true healing will not be complete until the deeper issues are addressed. Too often those struggling with eating disorders do so alone, with no one aware of what they are fighting with. Therapy is a safe place to explore and process through the painful and private layers of intense self-criticism, as well as find support for the day to day (and sometimes moment to moment) hurdles.

An eating disorder can take a full, exciting and creative life and cripple it with shame and confusion. So many with eating disorders struggle alone with the pressure to figure out what is happening and what they can do to change and heal. Therapy can provide a transformational place where healing is possible. You can learn to directly challenge the critical inner voice of your eating disorder and begin accepting yourself, imperfections and all. Call me today for a free phone consultation and take that first step toward freedom.
