Challenges with Eating Disorders (or disordered eating issues) can be confusing for both the individual struggling and also their loved ones. Together we can work at helping you understand what contributes to the unhealthy eating/exercise patterns that keep you caught in a vicious cycle of self-abuse. I can help you to uncover the obstacles that keep you stuck in patterns of distorted perceptions and obsessive thoughts about food, your weight and body image.

Very often, eating disorders result from a person's dissatisfaction with the appearance of his or her body. Based on my experience and on overwhelming research results, this dissatisfaction comes from society's messages, which we get from ads and celebrities, that certain body types (usually very thin) are beautiful and sexy. Unfortunately, most of us don't even realize that our perceptions have been so effectively manipulated in these ways. The idea that extremely thin bodies are desirable is handed down to us whether we want it or not. I have learned that people make much more sensible choices once they learn how they are being manipulated, and once they can make their own choices freely.

Eating disorders not only affect the patient, but have an enormous impact on loved ones. I work with eating disorders within the context of the family. Dealing with control or lack of it, may be difficult and all consuming. Therapy can create a sustainable understanding; establishing healthy boundaries, and better parent/child relationships. When the energy level has hit bottom, a fresh way to look at the problem may be exactly what the doctor ordered for other family members. Let’s face it . . . as parents; we can never stop trying because we love our children!

As a women therapist, it is easy to understand how many young men and women fall prey to the socially constructed ideal of feeling and looking their best. Unfortunately though, in extreme cases, men and women are fighting for their lives because of that compeitive and often unrealistic ideal. Eating disorders known as Bulimia and Anorexia are getting the best of our youth and wrecking havoc in their lives and in their loved one's lives. When seeking therapy from me, we will work collaboratively to restore your mental and physical health so that living a healthier and happier you becomes possible. Expect that it will be challenging and frustrating at times, but sustainable change is possible.

Eating disordered clients are usually disconnected from their bodies. This disconnection is an external expression of their internal process. Our job is to address the underlying feelings of powerlessness that often results from trauma or an unrealistic expectations coming from the family system or within the client. If a higher level of care is needed, then a careful referral will be made to a program so the disordered eating symptoms can be resolved and the client can return to outpatient therapy.

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.

Having worked with many individuals struggling with an Eating Disorder I have compassion and hope for the process of recovery. Unlike other "addictive disorders" Eating Disorders present with a unique challenge. With other disorders abstinence works… however everyone has to eat to live so abstinence is not an option. I work with each individual to identify triggers, develop goals, examine options and implement methods to learn and follow healthy eating; utilizing food for health instead of food for comfort, escape or avoidance. CBT and ERP are two evidence based methods that can be most helpful.
