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.

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.

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.
