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. My approach would be to assist the individual in working through the other stressors, decreasing the need for control through eating disorders. I would encourage medical care as needed. I

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.

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.

Eating Disorders cross the span of gender, culture and socio-economic class. Whether you struggle with anorexia, bulmia, over exercising or body image distortions, I can help facilitate a more peaceful way to live. ED have many different sources but often stem from a lack of self-esteem, perfectionism or as a means to self-soothe. Studies show that cognitive behavorial therapy combined with insight oriented therapy often offer the most satisfying means to overcome an Eating Disorder. I use both approaches, I also work closely with several residential programs, when there is a need for more comprehensive care. My clients find long lasting growth and satisfication in their therapy with me.

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.
