Do you use food to cope? When you are under emotional distress do you overeat or under eat? You may think that food is the problem, but it isn't. Food is symptom of underlying pain. Figure out what that pain is, address it, and your need to eat ( or restrict) in the face if it will end. Joining one of my groups and doing group therapy is an excellent way to heal that pain. You will be in the company of others who understand and can offer support. Group not for you? We can work individually instead.

I work with compulsive overeaters by helping them to see how they use food as a way to manage their anxiety,pain, and emotional emptiness.I believe emotional hunger is at the root of compulsive overeating and that until we can get our emotional needs met by something other than food we will be stuck in the cycle of overeating to fill a void that cannot be filled by food.

I help individuals to break the chains of eating disorders which has them enslaved and obsessing over food and body image. Both women and men suffer from the norms in society and the ideals of how we are all supposed to look. People can become victims to the discourses of body image. I will work closely with you to free yourself from this eating disordered identity and to live a freer existence.

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.
