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.

Eating Disorders are are compulsions and acting out behaviors people engage in to deal with difficult feelings and beliefs. I have assisted many women and men over the years to work through the underlying issues that fuel these behaviors and to learn new ways to cope with difficult emotional states.

I am very interested in being there for you if you have struggled thus far with food and body image issues. It can really be a great relief to share this with a helping professional who specializes in less than healthy behaviors and feelings centered around eating. I want to help you get to the bottom of where this came from and more importantly, the different place you want to get to. Only understanding without judgement is given in the journey I offer you to seeing and being yourself in healthier ways for your body. I believe it can be a huge benefit to gradually uncover who you truly are as a person in the world or want to be beyond what you are going through with food.

You are entitled to a body that is healthy and strong, and making the commitment to move into health sometimes requires loving support from a seasoned therapist who understands all the many nuances of disordered eating. The problem isn't food as much as it is a problem of relationship with ourselves. With compassionate understanding I can help you move from the complexities of maintaing an eating disorder into the safety of recovery that allows you to be at peace, once and for all, with the authentic YOU within. Please call me today for more information about the tools and paths to recovery I utilize. I can be reached at 925-520-5263.

Many of us struggle in secret with our relationship to food - and eating disorders in particular tend to live in the dark, alone and hopeless. Let's work together to change that - safely, slowly and with the only agenda of understanding its role and purpose, which is generally protective and has a good intention. Perhaps we can create a new relationship to food that allows us to coexist with it in a way that doesn't make us feel bad about ourselves? I'd like to help you do that - and to help free up the part of you that wants to change but doesn't feel able to. I'm here to help.

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 disorders is a very complicated and serious issue which mainly occurs with woman but a growing number of men are also confronting this. We are still learning as much as we can about eating disorders and the opportunities to effectively treat and overcome this challenge. Caring psychotherapy and counseling along with behavior and cognitive therapies are currently the effective approach to reversing and managing eating disorders. It has been discovered that personal body imaging and family as well as social group messages around food, body size and body image have made for pivotal influences in the emotional trauma around food and eating. Transformation is successful with counseling.

When someone is suffering with an eating disorder the best treatment will be a comprehensive program consisting of a medical evaluation, nutrition and exercise counseling, psychotherapy for the individual and perhaps the family as well, support groups and possibly a referral to a psychiatrist. The client may have access to all these through an inpatient treatment program or may be seeking to piece these together in outpatient treatment. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy has been shown to be an important part of effective treatment for eating disorders. CBT can help support the individual and the family in understanding the dynamics of an eating disorder and working to overcome it.

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.

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.

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 disorders and body image issues can be overwhelming, causing people to isolate and not live the life she/he would like. Treatment can be tricky because sometimes people are caught between wanting to recover and not wanting to let the eating disorder go. When working with someone who has this struggle, it is important to help them uncover what the eating disorder is providing for them. From there, strategies can be developed to fill the same needs but in a healthy way so clients are able to reach their potential.

Understanding and recovering from an eating disorder can be excruciating. The roots of this disease run deep and constrain both sufferers and loved ones. The inexorable feelings of helplessness, shame, anger, and fear felt by those who have suffered from an eating disorder (or by those who know someone who has) are overwhelming. A lot of people hold misconceptions about eating disorders. This misunderstanding leads to further disconnection between those who suffer directly from an eating disorder and their loved ones. In our work together, we will explore what led you to the eating disorder, acknowledge the ways it's served you, and practice adaptive skills to replace it.

As a woman, I know all too well the ways that you may find yourself in a painful relationship to food and to your body. Society's unrealistic standards and preoccupation with women's external beauty can challenge a woman's self worth at various stages of life. Perhaps this is old news to you but you don't know how to free yourself from it. In our work, we begin by listening to your body and cultivating a relationship with it. Getting to know your body on a deeper level and your full range of feelings, is getting to know you and what really matters to you. It may feel daunting or strange, but I assure you it is one of the most rewarding processes towards truly enjoying your body and food.
