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.

You don't have to have to be emaciated or eating all the time to know you have a problem with eating. You might have a problem identifying what you need and your default way to self-soothe is controlling food intake or eating too much. The time to get help is when you notice your eating habits are not healthy. Get therapy to figure out what you are feeling and needing so you can take care of your eating habits in a healthy way and have control over your life again.

I work with people who have previously received treatment for eating disorders and want to maintain or further their recovery. Because we need to eat to survive, we are confronted with our relationship to food every day. Deeper work on how our thoughts and emotions become represented in our bodies and food can bring an understanding of the reasons behind an eating disorder, as well as help discover new ways to manage it. I believe the way we relate to our bodies, our sustenance, and ourselves can be understood more deeply in order to live with greater compassion, acceptance, and confidence.

When someone is suffering with an eating disorder the best treatment will be a comprehensive program consisting of a medical evaluation, nutrition and exercise counseling, psychotherapy for the individual and perhaps the family as well, support groups and possibly a referral to a psychiatrist. The client may have access to all these through an inpatient treatment program or may be seeking to piece these together in outpatient treatment. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy has been shown to be an important part of effective treatment for eating disorders. CBT can help support the individual and the family in understanding the dynamics of an eating disorder and working to overcome it.

I use Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing to help those with compulsive eating patterns. This new way of using EMDR helps to disconnect the link between food and the feeling you may be chasing when you turn to food for things it cannot provide - love, comfort, safety, etc. Contact me for more information to see if this is the right treatment for you.

Do you find yourself eating for no particular reason? Do you prefer to eat in private? Food carries with it many powerful symbols. It can be used to nurture, comfort, and strengthen. It can also be used to control, punish, shame as well as suppress our feelings. Like any other addiction, food can be used to disconnect us from our intuition and alienate us from ourselves and others. Therapy is an ideal place to explore issues and feelings around food.

We will look together at the onset and occurrence of the eating disorder, and discuss what you think might have contributed to it. I will ask you to journal for 10 min. first about what you are feeling and thinking whenever you have the impulse to the problem behavior for a week, whether you act on the impulse or not. Looking at the journal, we can begin to get into the triggering feelings at a deeper level. We can use EMDR, talking, body awareness and other techniques to get deeper into the feelings. Together we will come up with alternative ways to take care of those feelings, other than the eating disorder.

I have extensive experience helping clients heal from eating disorders including Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, ARFID, OSFED, as well as UFED.

I also work with clients to heal the underlying wounds that led to the onset of the Eating Disorder; creating the foundation for lasting recovery. I believe that collaboration is essential and work closely with Registered Dietitians, Medical Doctors, and other vital members of my clients' teams.

Understanding and recovering from an eating disorder can be excruciating. The roots of this disease run deep and are supremely impactful, not just for the sufferer, but for family and friends. The powerful feelings of helplessness, anger, and fear felt by those who have suffered from an eating disorder or know someone who has are overwhelming. Many people hold common misconceptions about eating disorders. That misunderstanding leads to further disconnection between those who suffer directly from an eating disorder and their loved ones. In our work together, we will work to understand what led to the eating disorder and help you to get your life back.

Whether you are eating too much or not enough, eating is tied to emotions. If you could simply restrict your calories to lose weight, you would have done it already. Talking to a therapist gets to the root of food issues and allows you to see what's really going on and to make changes. Food is not only physical nourishment but emotional nourishment at well. If you can't control your behavior around food, something else is going on. In therapy we will explore issues related to food and eating without focusing on calories or the scale.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Randi Fredricks, Ph.D., LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Just as a drug addict uses drugs to cope, someone with a food addiction uses food in order to deal with their problems. I understand the other issues that often come with an eating disorder, such as poor body image, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and family and relationship problems. In my eating disorder therapy sessions, I frequently discuss nutritional considerations in our work together. You may be thinking, “What does nutrition have to do with psychotherapy or eating disorders?” Many of us bristle when we think of nutrition, because we think it means dieting or something equally unpleasant. In therapy, many emotional conditions can be dramatically helped with nutrition.

Most eating disorders are experienced by people whose lives feel out of control. This often comes from having an autonomic nervous system that does not regulate the body well. This dysregulation is based in both shock trauma (single episode overwhelming events) and developmental trauma (repeated lower grade trauma and attachment/neglect problems). I use Somatic Experiencing to help individuals to gain mastery over their autonomic nervous system and feel like they are once again back in control of their body and their life.
