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 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 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.

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.

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.

If you have difficulties with your eating, there is always some emotional component. Together, we’ll examine what the psychological and emotional issues are that are involved in your particular problems with eating. This applies with compulsive overeating, anorexia, and bulimia. Even milder forms of overeating or undereating have emotional aspects, and we can deal with them. Bingeing or purging come in many forms, and we’ll examine how that may apply with you. It’s not about the diet, it’s about the dieter. It’s about the way you relate to your emotions, the people and situations in your life, and how you translate that to eating. You’re not damaged or a failure. Psychotherapy helps.

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.
