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.

A safe place to talk about intense emotions for those diagnosed with an eating disorder can be of benefit as an individual uncovers the root motivations which might be linked with eating disorders. Several unresolved emotions and issues often are found at the core of eating problems, often beginning in early adolesence. Learning how to express feelings such as anger, sadness, guilt, and fear can be a freeing experience with a professional therapist.

Unresolved issues from your past can lead to more serious disorders such as an eating disorder. We will go beyond the symptom of the eating disorder to treat the underlying cause and unresolved psychological trauma that brought you to experience it in the first place. This will help you restore your sense of control and reduce the poweful hold that any painful memories have on you as well as getting to a place where you have a better relationship with food.

Eating Disorders can be extremely challenging and turn a person and/or family's life upside down. I treat clients with ED in an empathetic, non-judgmental, understanding way. I practice some Psychodynamic techniques with the goal of getting to the root of the problem. I find it to be extremely important to spend a sufficient amount of time discussing a client's historical background and challenges.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Jeffrey Chernin, Ph.D., MFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Norwalk

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.

EMDR, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, & Acceptance & Commitment Therapy have all been shown to be useful in the treatment of eating disorders. While anorexia is imminently life-threatening and is, therefore, best treated inpatient, bulemia, bulmarexia & compulsive over-eating may respond if matched well to one of the above out-patient therapies and used in conjunction with group therapy, a peer support group, or a 12-step program.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Phil Kiehl, M.Div, BCC

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Certified Chaplain & Grief Counselor

Within driving distance of Norwalk

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.

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.

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 and binge eating disorder. 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 am one of the few therapists in LA County certified in FBT.
