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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Eating Disorders cross the span of gender, culture and socio-economic class.
