Eating Disorders almost invariably stem from abandonment, neglect or abuse during childhood. This is a very serious condition that needs the help of a therapist at minimum. Often a dietitian or medical doctor must be included in a team approach, and many clients also find help in a group of people who are struggling to not allow food (or thoughts about controlling food) to be the primary thought in their lives. I help clients regain their lives by clearing up the past hurts and giving them ideas and accountability for the present. Come in for a free consultation and we'll talk more!!!

Treatment of eating disorders, can be challenging for both the therapist and the client. Effective treatment addresses the underlying issues that often date back to childhood and a person’s self-perception and self-image. Treatment approach can focus on helping a person to understand how their own self-image impacts their eating behavior. We also help the client address underlying emotions and conflicts that may be influencing them.

am here to help you for as long as you need. Life gets difficult sometimes and support from friends, family, and self-help doesn't always work--that is when therapy can help. I work with my clients to identify the core of their pain, its underlying causes, and the beliefs, thought patterns, and external influences that perpetuate it. The overarching goal is to break these patterns and learn skills to increase self-efficacy, self-compassion, and acceptance. ​

Eating Disorders are a kind of compulsion, may or may not from a Body Image Disorder, (typically with the restricting types, like Anorexia or Bulemia) but they often stem from deep insecurity and loss of perceived control. A clinical eating disorder is a form of self-harm, and the compulsive thoughts that run in a person's different levels of mind can be very difficult to control, therefore controlling eating, over-exercising, and other forms of anxiety escape that arise, become additional coping mechanisms of choice. Managing the harmful eating disorder can feel like loosing control and may trigger great anxiety, even panic attacks; that's why you need an on-call therapist you trust.
