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.

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.

Eating disorders are caused by compulsive issues stemming from buried feelings in wounds at the core of the personality. Wounds are filled with old depression, anger or anxiety and they must be released for helathier lifestyles. Rigid rituals and control issues hold us back, often limiting how truly connected we are to ourselves and to others. Why have a secret! Use tools to deal more effectively with buried feelings causing the compuslive patterns. Eating disorders limit how nourishing your life is!

Eating disorders are serious conditions related to persistent eating behaviors that negatively impact your health, your emotions and your ability to function in important areas of life. Most eating disorders involve focusing too much on your weight, body shape and food, leading to dangerous eating behaviors. These behaviors can significantly impact your body's ability to get adequate nutrition. Eating disorders can harm the heart, digestive system, bones, and teeth and mouth, and lead to other diseases. With treatment, you can return to healthier eating habits and sometimes reverse serious complications caused by the eating disorder.

Early trauma impacts our functioning in many ways and in different areas of our lives. Trauma in permanently stored in our brain/bodies until it is processed. Therefore processing early trauma can result in us being freed from disorders such as eating disorders as we process and "resolve" early trauma. We specialize in EMDR and TF-CBT therapies, which are highly effective in processing trauma.
