Eating Disorder Counselor

Jennifer Staat, Ph.D

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Southport

Food is everywhere, and we all have to eat. This makes food addictions difficult to tackle. You may be stuck on a merry-go -round of dieting, starving yourself then binging. Dr. Staat would like to help you learn a new way to approach food. She worked on a bariatric surgery unit where she repeatedly observed that food addictions were often driven by deeper underlying issues: negative suppressed feelings, sexual abuse, or growing up in an alcoholic family. Dr. Staat learned that healing can often be catalyzed by working gently with these underlying issues. As you get to know your deeper self, you develop increasing self-esteem and explore healthier eating habits.
