Food abuse has historically been more difficult to treat than other forms of substance abuse because one can't simply abstain, as is the case for alcohol or drugs. But when painful emotions (shame, anger, guilt, for example) that have been fueling the disordered eating are eliminated huge amounts of energy are released that then become available to fuel the new you who no longer relies on food to numb the pain.

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.

An eating disorder may be inner turmoil manifesting itself in outer appearance. Are you an emotional eater? Or do you deprive yourself of food? Perhaps you binge and purge? Chew and spit? All of these symptoms of an eating disorder. All can cause serious physical health problems. As if that's not enough, there is often a feeling of shame and isolation associated with your eating disorder, and you feel as though you can't talk about it. If you're reading this now, you're on the right track. It is okay to talk about it. In fact, contact me and we'll set up a free thirty minute consult to see if I'm the right person to help you find the right strategies and provide support as you change.

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.

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.

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!
