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.

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 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.

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.
