Eating Disorder Counselor

Heather Browne, PsyD, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

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.

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.

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

Eating disorders are complex, complicated methods to cope with unworked feelings. Food can become a metaphor for hunger, control, a fear of needing and longing, a wish to be attractive and desired. Eating disorders are always healed in the context of a safe, reflective relationship with another. As a trained professional, I can help explore and heal the dynamics that helped develop these adaptive, but destructive methods to cope with distress.

Eating disorders are serious conditions related to persistent eating behaviors that negatively impact your health, your emotions and your ability to function in important areas of life. Most eating disorders involve focusing too much on your weight, body shape and food, leading to dangerous eating behaviors. These behaviors can significantly impact your body's ability to get adequate nutrition. Eating disorders can harm the heart, digestive system, bones, and teeth and mouth, and lead to other diseases.
