I use a bio-psycho-social approach when working with an individual with an eating disorder including anorexia, bulimia, or body dysmorphic disorder. Do you know the cues or triggers of your eating difficulties? The thoughts related to and feelings behind your eating or non-eating patterns? What is the function of your eating disorder? Do you have a realistic body and self image? Do you have a history of depression or other mood related difficulties? These are some of the questions, we will examine and have you answer in therapy. Eating disorders may require the involvement of other professionals like a nutritionist for example.

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.

Those who suffer from eating disorders tend to have underlying control issues.

Learning to change the view from the inside out and the outside in can greatly impact this very serious and deadly issue.
