I approach eating disorders much the same way as I approach other compulsive behaviors: I view them as faulty coping strategies (see the paragraph on addiction). Additionally, I look at eating disorder behavior as symbolic and thus help clients to understand the "story" that their behavior is communicating on a deeper level. I don't focus on things like not counting calories, simple behavior modification, or weight gain/loss. These are just details of the underlying emotional issues.

We in the United States have a pretty unhealthy relationship with food. We go out to eat in a restaurant and are served a meal that has as much fat and calories as we're supposed to eat in a whole day, sometimes more. Then we look at a magazine or turn on the TV and see stick-thin models who look like they never eat. What are you supposed to do with that? We all need food to live, but most of us also feel like we're supposed to look like those models. We want to be perfect. We want to be in control. But so often we feel like we have no control at all. If you're ready to find a healthier, more manageable relationship with food, I'd love to help.

Although different eating disorders spring from different issues, food is a basic emotional as well as physical need from the day you were born. We can use it to satisfy, temporarily many other needs. Or we can pridefully deny ourselves. In addition, we live in a culture that can have very harsh, judgmental attitudes about bodies, attitudes that we internalize without noticing. You may have been told that your body image is distorted, that other people do not see you the way you do. Self-acceptance is the beginning. It is not your fault you are in this condition, although it is your responsibility to get past it. The second step is self-observance, then self-love. I can help.

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.

Gabriel Newman, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

We have several expertises within the practice that can help with eating disorders, and we work as a team to provide what the patient needs. Since medical psychology is actively practiced by us, we do not shirk from confronting the dietary and health concerns that come with this area of challenge, and will work cooperatively with physicians, as needed, to improve the patient's situation. Ultimately, we beileve that the primary work is in the head, changing the way a person feels and believes about food. On the way there, however, there is a lot that can be done, behaviorally and physiologically, to effect change.

Laurie Friedman Donze, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

My approach to treatment of eating disorders combines both self-understanding with practical, behavioral tools. In a detailed evaluation, we will explore your life history to understand the onset of eating disorder or other symptoms. Eating disorder treatment is most effective when provided by a multi-disciplinary team, including a therapist, dietitian, physician, and possibly a psychiatrist. I will refer you to other providers as needed. I work with all types of eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and "compulsive overeating." Successful treatment results in the cessation of disordered behaviors and thoughts.
