Eating disorders can control your life. Whether it's eating, or not eating....binging and purging, they are all a form of control, stemming usually from feeling out of control growing up. In our society, the focus on weight and how you look, and what size you wear, often are the source of distorted body image...body dysmorphia. Therapy can help you deal with and transform the way you see yourself, and heal childhood wounds that contribute to the beginning of every eating disorder.

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.

I have had experience treating the most severe of eating disorders. Eating disorders are potentially deadly, and must never be underestimated. Just as with drug/alcohol addiction, eating disorders can leave a trail of devastation amongst entire families. Every member of the family needs to be treated and supported. All medical professionals must be within reach and incorporated into treatment when dealing with a severe eating disorder.This is not to be taken lightly. As with drug abusers, people with eating disorders can resort to "hiding" tactics and may resume their anorexia/bulimiaor over eating behind closed doors. These clients/families need long term, unconditional support.

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.

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.

Recovery is an option and an individual can address thieir eating disorder symptoms. Helping individuals to tactile their eating disorder begins with cognitively separating the thoughts of the eating disorder and the individual's thoughts. Then, tools are implemented to help manage the thoughs of the eating disorder. This may take time, but the individual does have the capacity to make change and stop listening to the thoughts of the eating disorder.

Although there are many theories on disordered eating, the goal is to create a healthier relationship with and around food. A family story, cultural influence, how one sees themselves, are all relevant to making changes in this arena. Also as important is the recognition of the craving to use food as a relief from life stressors. Using Mind-Body Mindfulness techniques, one can help rid themselves of disordered eating and live a health and happy life overall. We at the Family Room Psychotherapy Associates offer the Bogus Pleasure Recognition protocol to help tackle the root cause of eating disorders.
