Eating Disorder Counselor

Jeffrey Chernin, Ph.D., MFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of South Pasadena

I view an eating disorder as a coping strategy (tool), and therapy is a place for you to replace this "tool" with one that is helpful rather than harmful. You and I would work together to find new ways of coping with uncomfortable feelings and situations. We would figure out what your triggers are and how to live with upsetting experiences. We might also discover that control has a lot to do with what's going on, and its roots might stem from how you were treated by your parents and other family members. So, we would also find ways for you to not only feel but actually BE more in control of your life.

I help individuals to break the chains of eating disorders which has them enslaved and obsessing over food and body image.

I am a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS). During graduate school I trained in an eating disorder research clinic and I specialize in providing evidence-based treatment for eating disorders in adults and adolescents. For adults with eating disorders, I provide cognitive behavioral therapy which is well-proven in research, especially for the treatment of bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. For adolescents with anorexia or bulimia, the treatment of choice is Maudsley Family Based therapy (FBT) in which the support of the whole family is enlisted to help in treatment. I am one of the few therapists in LA County certified in FBT.

If you have difficulties with your eating, there is always some emotional component. Together, we’ll examine what the psychological and emotional issues are that are involved in your particular problems with eating. This applies with compulsive overeating, anorexia, and bulimia. Even milder forms of overeating or undereating have emotional aspects, and we can deal with them. Bingeing or purging come in many forms, and we’ll examine how that may apply with you. It’s not about the diet, it’s about the dieter. It’s about the way you relate to your emotions, the people and situations in your life, and how you translate that to eating. You’re not damaged or a failure. Psychotherapy helps.

Eating disorders greatly interrupt the quality of life for the person suffering from this complex disease. It can become the center of one's existence, creating isolation, depression, and anxiety in its' wake. My approach to treating eating disorders is to deeply understand what is at the core of the development of the eating disorder...what pain it is helping to manage...so that one to begin to understand the root cause of this addictive behavior and begin to slowly replace eating disordered behavior with a new understanding and acceptance of teh self as well as new coping behaviors. It is a complicated process, but one that can lead to long term health and recovery.

If a sensitive young adult feels anxious, fearful, powerless, overwhelmed, or lonely, they may discover a degree of comfort in eating. People who binge on food frequently experience life as overwhelming. Perhaps they experience their loved ones as pre-occupied, and/or their home as conflicted, disorganized and in need of boundaries. By working with my clients to understand and attend to any problems inherent in their family system, I can help address this problem.

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.
