In this day and age, many, if not most of us, have an unhealthy relationship with food. Sometimes we have fear around what we are eating, related to how we think we need to look in order to be accepted. Sometimes we use food to comfort ourselves in ways that leave us feeling empty and filled with shame. I work to help clients understand their relationship with food and how to improve it by looking mindfully at what food is doing for them in both positive and negative ways and understanding what they really need need on an emotional level and how to meet those needs in other ways. Most of all, I work with people to rebuild self-love through habits of care and compassion.

Eating disorders are a form of addiction and I encourage you to get into a recovery program just like they would for any other addiction. It starts with counselling where I equip you to get "sobriety" from your eating disorder. This is followed up with support/work groups so that you do not have to do recovery alone. I also encourage clients to utilize accountability partners, educate themselves through reading, and establish a healthy, consistent prayer life.

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

In R2H 1J5 - Nearby to Ritchot.

Our relationship with food, a necessity of life, can be fraught with internal conflict, particularly when coupled with the nuances of our own self concept, the vulnerability to societal expectations, and the epidemic of feeling powerless or voiceless in our lives. I work with clients to begin to define the relationship-with food, with body, with self. And to support small but continual shifts, in a way that both respects the valid payoffs of maintaining this relationship as is, while also acknowledging the need for change and growth.

Therapeutic process will consist of assessing the immediate danger of the client, while exploring the root of the problem be it Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge-eating. When client share their stories in the session sometime they begin to discover how unhealthy interpersonal relationship has affected their way of being. Some people might binge eat because that is the only control they feel they have, therefore I help them deal with co-dependency issues so that they can learn to make a health choices. The client also learns to become aware of her or his triggers, and take positive control of what happens next. For example if you always binge-eat after a fight with your mom, instead of using food as a ....

Self acceptance is so much at the centre of many of our struggles, and I find this particularly true with eating disorders. The battle to accept ourselves as we are, to feel good in our own skin, is as central to recovery as one's relationship with food itself. I work with both the inner struggle to self accept, as well as the related manifestation of disorder.

Eating Disorders, is without a doubt, a very complex group of disorders. The underlying theme however is the same for all; that is, taking control of one aspect life where one is able to see and feel quite drastic changes, quickly. For anorexia it stems from strict denial of calories. For Bulimia Nervosa, ridding your body of calories after ingestion. The drive and will power to do either often comes about when there is no self-love, self-esteem, confidence, or self-worth. The insecurities about their daily decisions haunts them, and therefore turn towards controlling this aspect of their lives. My job is to guide them towards the root cause of the insecurities regain their self-worth.

Counsellor / Psychotherapist

In R3G 2X5 - Nearby to Ritchot.

Eating disorders usually involve deeply embedded patterns of perceiving, evaluating and feelings about the self in relation to body image and weight. My work with individuals struggling with eating disorders involves creating a safe, accepting, respectful, empathic and caring environment that facilitates honest self-exploration to identify experiences and beliefs that underlie the disorder. I support individuals in resolving past pain; help them confront and restructure faulty beliefs, thought patterns and perceptions about themselves; enhance positive evaluations about themselves; and encourage adherence to a structure for adaptive weight regulation and accountability. A helpful strategy!

Having an eating disorder can be so very isolating and it can be difficult to work through without support. There can be so much shame and secrecy and guilt attached to having an eating disorder. Living with an eating disorder makes it so difficult to be with and trust the body you live in. I have worked at the Women’s Health Clinic for many years - which is a place which specializes in eating disorders and body image. Counselling can be very beneficial in understanding where this way of living in your body has come from - how it relates to coping with difficult emotions and how to create new ways of living in and with your body.

I have worked with both men and women who have struggled with eating disorders, whether it is anorexia, bulimia, overeating, body issues, or any issue with food that has had a negative affect on life. I believe that early intervention is best. I recognize that individuals with eating disorders are often sensitive, and usually have deep past wounds or thinking issues. I believe in working with this population with both sensitivity and boldness.

Whether you have been struggling with dysfunctional eating for a few months, or had an eating disorder for years, you know how it can control your life and rob you of energy, focus, health, money, and relationships. Your eating disorder likely began as a way of coping with other life stresses like depression, abuse, or relationship problems. In counselling, we will explore how your particular disorder developed, the role it has played in your life, and work together to give you new ways of living. Counselling will include resolving hurts and difficulties of the past, developing new ways of relating to food, working on better body image and self-esteem, and building up your support system.

Many people struggle with eating issues. We are flooded every day with images and messages about what to eat and what we should look like. It is not about the food. It is about something far deeper that that. It is about how we feel about ourselves- on the inside. It is about our worth, our value- on the inside that is the most important. If we can come to love and accept ourselves on the inside, the outside will be fine.
