Eating Disorder Counselor

Susan Purrington, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Long Beach

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.

Licensed Therapist

Within driving distance of Long Beach

OCAC specializes in the area of Body Dysmorphic Disorder and eating disorders that relate to control and obsession. If you find your compulsions irrational yet unpreventable, there are solutions. If food is merely an arena for you to exert control or if food strongly corresponds to anxiety's role in your life, OCAC can help. Our focus is not in body image therapy. Rather, our approach addresses the mind's associations with food and the underlying mentalities that influence thoughts about food and eating.

Do you stuff your feelings? Do you eat because if feels good and it seems to calm you down if you're sad, angry, overwhelmed, stressed, bored, nervous, etc? I prefer the phrase Disordered Eating because you don't have a problem with eating. You are eating to cope with life and comfort yourself. I get it. I have been there. You are not alone.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Jeffrey Chernin, Ph.D., MFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Long Beach

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.

Lauren Muhlheim, Psy.D., CEDS

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Long Beach

I am a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS). During graduate school I trained in an eating disorder research clinic and I specialize in providing evidence-based treatment for eating disorders in adults and adolescents. For adults with eating disorders, I provide cognitive behavioral therapy which is well-proven in research, especially for the treatment of bulimia nervosa. For adolescents with anorexia or bulimia, the treatment of choice is Maudsley Family Based therapy (FBT) in which the support of the whole family is enlisted to help in treatment. I have received training in this very effective model and am undergoing advanced certification training in FBT.
