Eating should be one of life's pleasures but it can become a nightmare if you suffer from an eating disorder. If food has become your enemy or you find that you are obsessing about food and/or body issues almost constantly, I can work with you to relieve some of your suffering. By deeply listening to your history we can explore and make meaningful links between your past and present history generating a better understanding of your emotions, ideas, and behaviors around food, body, and mind. By increasing awareness we can open up space for something new to happen. My style is warm, empathic, and collaborative and I will work hard to help you create change!

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.

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.

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.

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.

An eating disorder is not a lifestyle choice. An eating disorder is a serious and often fatal illnesses that causes serious disturbances to a person’s eating behaviors, physical health, and relationships. Obsessions with food, body weight, and shape may also signal an eating disorder. The sooner someone struggling with this illness, or displaying behaviors and attitudes consistent with these disorders, can get connected to help, the better. Common eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder. As with any illness or psychological disorder, these problems will not go away on their own; without clinical support they often only escalate dangerously.

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.

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 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.
