Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

When working with people who suffer from disordered eating, I work with the client to help them understand what purpose the eating pattern serves. We identify how it has come to be and then learn to identify triggers and trigger responses. Clients are trained in managing their awareness and urges in order to take full control of their health and wellness. We also work to create a plan for how to maintain mental wellness moving forward so that the eating disorder does not morph into another mental health issue.

Anorexia is Greek for "without appetite" and Bulimia is Greek for "ravenous hunger." They are behaviors characterized by under eating and overeating. If you under eat to the point of risking your life, you are called Anorexic. If you overeat and compensate (by excessive exercise or purging) you are called Bulimic. If you overeat and do nothing to compensate, you become overweight. If you are overweight to the point of damaging your body, you are called obese. All of these behaviors are serious problems. Whether they are rooted in genetics, family history, or current emotional stresses, you need to change what you are doing with food. Please get some help today. The world is a better place with you than without you.

Eating Disorders cross the span of gender, culture and socio-economic class. Whether you struggle with anorexia, bulmia, over exercising or body image distortions, I can help facilitate a more peaceful way to live. ED have many different sources but often stem from a lack of self-esteem, perfectionism or as a means to self-soothe. Studies show that cognitive behavorial therapy combined with insight oriented therapy often offer the most satisfying means to overcome an Eating Disorder. I use both approaches, I also work closely with several residential programs, when there is a need for more comprehensive care. My clients find long lasting growth and satisfication in their therapy with me.

I worked at a residential treatment center which specialized in eating disorders for 5 years. I believe that eating disorders are desperate attempts to cope with life and previous traumas. I help women specifically learn to build a healthy relationship with food, love their bodies, and learn how to use other coping skills that do not involve binging, purging, laxatives, and/or starvation. Through therapy, you'll heal past traumas and heal the relationship you have with your mind, body, and spirit.

I believe that eating disorders do not exist independently; I strongly believe that there are other issues such as depression and/or low self esteem, with the eating disorder being the only area where the individual feels a sense of control. My approach would be to assist the individual in working through the other stressors, decreasing the need for control through eating disorders. I would encourage medical care as needed. I
