Lauren Muhlheim, Psy.D., CEDS

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Whittier

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. 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 have received training in this very effective model and am undergoing advanced certification training in FBT.

Eating disorders are most often a reaction to other life events. Often clients feel like life is so chaotic that eating habits are the only aspect of life that they can control. Eating disorders are also often linked to anxiety and low self-esteem. In order to treat eating disorders, I would help clients to build a more positive body image, create and implement a healthy eating plan, and build support in the family system.

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.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Whittier

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. Contact kevin@kevinfleminphd.com or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.

Trish Phillips, PsyD, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Whittier

Eating disorders can leave you feeling very isolated, alone and distant. Often an eating disorder starts as an attempt to have "control" over something in a persons life and by the time help is sought you can feel like you don't have control of anything. An eating disorder can be one of the easiest secrets to keep and yet is also one of the most dangerous. You are not alone and you don't have to walk this path by yourself. Together we can explore what led you to this point in your life and come up with strategies to help you break this cycle so you can live a full and healthy life.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Heather Browne, PsyD, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Whittier

I work with all eating disorders except Anorexia. First, it is vital to make certain of the client's health. Once it is clear that the client is ready for therapy, we explore the patterns and habits that are being acted out. We use cognitive behavior techniques to try at trouble shoot so that there are new resources when the client is in danger of acting out. Developing a supportive network and dietary research is important for their health. A log is frequently used to monitor change and growth. Once there is stabilization, we explore the family dynamics and control which most likelyexacerbated the eating disorder. The faulty thought processes need to be altered.

With over 16 years of clinical experience, I provide a comprehensive assessment of eating disorder/body image issues in order to determine the best course of treatment. Initial interviews focus on gathering a full history of symptoms, including any/all preoccupations with weight and appearance. We will work with your physician to screen for any medical complications, as well as refer you to a dietician if you need more structure with your nutritional intake. The goal is to improve the relationship you have with food and your body, so that you can move forward with life and create lasting change.

Within driving distance of Whittier

The focus I use to treat people with Eating Disorders is to look and help people understand control issues, rejection/abandonment issues, proper body perception, difficulty resoving conflicts with others, and teaching them about resolving issues to do with perfection, good/bad issues and acceptance. As a result, people will learn what they can and cannot control. They will come to undersand how food is used to fix relationship conlficts and how food is used to cope with stress, anger and anxiety. People will learn new ways to cope so that food is not used to treat their underlying emotional conflicts.
