I help my clients to understand how their eating disorder symptoms are attempts to communicate internal conflicts and get unmet relational needs met in a safe way. I help them express these hidden struggles and conflicts and the emotions connected to them and get their emotional needs met so that they can learn to let go of these behaviors that are on longer serving them.

Eating disorders are pervasive in the United States and it is a misconception and cultural myth that women are the only people that suffer from them. I work with all genders struggling with eating disorders to understand their relationship to their bodies and the beliefs they hold about their bodies. At the onset of therapy, I will assess if immediate medical attention and/or hospitalization is necessary before talk therapy can begin.

Zak Forrest, LMFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

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.

if you (or someone you love) have an eating disorder, YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Between 5 and 10 million Americans have anorexia or bulimia and another 25 million suffer with binge eating disorder. Hopefully, knowing that other people have experienced what you are going through, and have gotten better with treatment, will provide you with some sense of hope. Don't rely on your "willpower" to get over this condition. As mentioned previously, an eating disorder is a serious, potentially life-threatening disease. Between 6% and 20% of eating disordered individuals will literally die as a result of their disease. Seek PROFESSIONAL help for yourself or someone you love as soon as possible. I can 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 use mindfulness techniques and sometimes EMDR to help clients who are struggling with disordered eating. The goal in working this way is to contact the moment when a decision is being made - either to eat too much, or to restrict food, or to purge - and work toward being able to tolerate the feelings that lead to the action. In working this way, we create space for making a choice, deciding to respond differently. For each client it is important to understand why the disordered eating came into being. I believe there are good reasons why eating disorders are developed, and it is important that this is addressed in the therapy.

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.

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.

Finding joy in our bodies can be a challenge. I believe in working from the inside out to help you find peace again. When we focus on all that makes us whole, the external desire to be thin or perfect does not continue to take all of our emotional energy. I work with you to change your self-defeating thoughts, provide empowering information on brain science and behavior change. Never diet again. Invest in yourself.

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.

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.

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!
