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 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.
