Eating disorders can be difficult to understand and work through, especially in the context of your relationships. With how complex and delicate eating disorders are, it's important that you go to a therapist with adequate experience who knows how to truly help. I use a combination of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Addiction-Focused therapy, both of which have been proven to work with eating disorders. Let me help you and the important people in your life overcome the devastating effects of this eating disorder and begin to heal from the pain that you all are feeling.

In addition to treating Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and other types of disordered eating behaviors, I specialize in working with people struggling with Binge-Eating Disorder and compulsive overeating. I encourage clients to examine the reasons for their behaviors and identify the underlying issues that are driving the eating disordered behaviors in order to help them stop self-destructive patterns. Using a strengths-based, Cognitive-Behavioral approach, I can help you learn how to challenge negative thoughts related to food, weight, and body image so that you can gain a sense of freedom and control in your life separate from the eating disorder.

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.

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.

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.

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.

There is a commonly held view that eating disorders are a lifestyle choice. Eating disorders are actually serious and often fatal illnesses that cause severe disturbances to a person’s eating behaviors. Obsessions with food, body weight, and shape may also signal an eating disorder. Common eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder. At Portrait Health Centers, therapy and nutrition counseling can greatly benefit the person seeking treatment from an eating disorder.

When working with eating disorders, I take the time to get to know the client as a whole vs the client's eating disorder. There is often a story to be told behind this disorder and I ensure you have a safe place to share that story and process anything you may need, in order to help aid the healing process. I understand that this is a painful and long journey and I offer my support along the way.

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.

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.
