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.

Is your children struggling with an eating disorder? Eating disorders can stem from very deep emotional hurts or stress. I specialize in working with youth aged 3-25, and can help you understand how and why your child is struggling with eating. Children typically want to feel significant and accepted, and many times the eating issue is related to a disconnect in a deeper place. If you call for a free consultation, I can briefly assess if we would be a good match and if we are not, I can refer you to someone who can.

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.

Behavioral and emotional assessment and etiology and maintaining factors of eating disorders, and MI/SA assessment if needed.

Therefore, treatment is wholistic and takes into account multiple facets of eating disorders.

I work with people trying to lose weight from compulsive overeating such as binge eating. I do not work with anorexia or bulimia however. Many times the overeating is grouped along with other addictions such as drinking, smoking, shopping, gambling or drugs. Please don't hesitate to ask how I might be helpful in this area. I approach this work from a behavioral and cognitive viewpoint - but also work to get to the underlying reasons for the overeating to help maintain a healthy lifestyle.

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 address eating disorders from an addiction point of view. Abstinence in eating disorders is about changing the relationship one has with food from something that is unhealthy to something that is healthy and life giving. 12 step programs or some other eating support group in the community is often advised to insure success. Body image is also covered when treating someone with an eating disorder.
