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.

While most eating disorder issues are treated by cognitive behavioral methodologies or specialized outpatient/inpatient programs, Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, PhD provide relief first and foremost for the brain of one suffering from an eating disorder----without giving them medication. We believe that the neural circuitries responsible for the compulsive behaviors with eating are not necessarily only a neurotransmitter issue but of overused neural networks that affect the harmonization, balance, and decisions of the whole brain.

Those who suffer from eating disorders tend to have underlying control issues. The one thing that they have control over is what they allow in their bodies and how they eliminate much of what they eat. Many times it is related to a poor self concept and a distorted picture of self. Learning to change the view from the inside out and the outside in can greatly impact this very serious and deadly 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.

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.
