It's not your fault. Really. Blaming yourself will only make it worse. The more shame you feel, the worse it gets! We will work to reduce your self-shaming, which will give you a great start to "out-grow" your eating disorder. Out-grow it? Yes - you don't "fix it". You learn, practice, and outgrow it! Eating disorders are really common these days, as our society provides many triggers. The more you learn about it, the more options you will have to learn to out-grow it as a coping mechanism. I know how to do that with you. Psychotherapy offers a variety of avenues for healing, and becoming a loving care-taker of your body. So NO GUILT! NO SHAME! Let's meet, and build the plan.

The voice of eating disorders will have individuals inaccurately believing that in order to be happy, one has to lose weight and look good. The truth is that happiness and self-esteem come from loving yourself for who you truly are. Achieving that goal is only possible through recovery. With treatment, support from others, and smart self-help strategies, a person can overcome their eating disorder and gain true self-confidence. The road to eating disorder recovery starts with admitting a problem exists. True recovery from eating disorders involves: learning to listen to your body; learning to listen to your feelings; learning to trust yourself; and learning to accept and love 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.
