You will learn what food habits you have adopted over time and will explore the root for these habits. You will learn how your thoughts and emotions influence the eating behavior and will develop skills to help you heal. I do not work with severe cases of anorexia and bulimia or eating disorders stemming from abuse or trauma. I do work with disordered eating stemming from emotional stress.

I work with eating disorders as a symptom of a deeper issue. By using a combination of behavioral changes and analytic understanding of the meanings of your symptoms, you will gain the control you need to become healthy. If you need a higher level of care, such as intensive outpatient or hospitalization, I will refer you. I can see you several times a week, if you would benefit from that. If you have been in intensive programs for anorexia, bulemia, or compulsive overeating, and are ready to explore your own personal meanings and issues with food, I am available to take that journey with you.

Eating disorders go beyond a desire to be thin that gets out of hand. Underlying the struggle with weight and the distorted, overly negative view of one’s appearance is, very often, a desperate need to feel in control. And this need comes from having had experiences of feeling frighteningly out of control of your body, your life, your decisions. Therapy can help you to identify and resolve the deeper issue underlying restricting and binge-purging behaviors. This process of self-understanding is, itself, empowering and will give you a new sense of agency and control over your life as you develop healthier eating behaviors.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

In 10003 - Nearby to Avenel.

Over the years I have had a number of clients who suffer from anorexia or bulimia. Generally these are young women who are convinced that their misguided eating habits and distorted view of their body are necessary and "normal." Using a gentle but honest approach, I try to help them see the many ways they are hampering their health and their relationships through maintaining their disorder. In time, if they stick with my program, they work through the internal conflicts that underlie the eating disorder and begin to thrive in their personal and professional lives.

Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

In 10001 - Nearby to Avenel.

Eating disorders are often an attempt at control in a life where something else is not working, out of control, and in desperate need of repair. I work with individuals who are struggling with forms of binge eating, bulimia, anorexia, restrictive eating, and exercise bulimia. These behaviors may have emerged from or overlap with depression, anxiety, grief and mourning. I work both in the here-and-now and explore any history that may have aided in the development of the destructive behavior. I encourage family sessions when appropriate to aid in recovery.

Eating disorders affect one's relationship to food and his/her body. It can impact one's physical and mental health as well as his/her self-esteem. Often times it stems from trauma, loss or sexual abuse. Some forms of eating disorders are anorexia nervosa, bulimia, body dysmorphia, binge eating and compulsive overeating. When left untreated, eating disorders can lead to depression, anxiety, isolation and even job loss. With decades of experience in this area, I can help you develop the tools to regain a positive sense of self.

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.

If you are thinking about addressing an eating disorder, please consider contacting me. Eating disorders are different, but many have serious medical risks. I am not an alarmist and will work with you collaboratively to ensure you and I share goals for therapy. Since I worked for years in a research center's weight loss program for years, I receive many eating disorder referrals. Of course, losing weight is not what every case calls for, but regardless, many of the principles and knowledge required to lose weight, can also help people learn to accept gaining a little weight and even accepting themselves and how they look. I approach eating issues in a comprehensive or holistic manner.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 07016 - Nearby to Avenel.

I help clients with mild eating disorders that are not causing any medical complications. This might look like binge eating when you are anxious in order to stuff down feelings of heartbreak, loneliness or helplessness. I can help you learn how to manage these deep painful feelings rather than trying to avoid them by overeating. Once you learn that you can feel these difficult feelings than you no longer have to avoid them with food.

Eating disorders, whether anorexia (self-starvation), bulimia (vomiting) or binge-eating, are serious disorders that can be dangerous if untreated. They usually result from a mix of genetic, psychological, social and environmental causes. I take an integrative approach to treating eating disorders. We look at the impact of family, personality and society on issues such as distorted body image, perfectionism and striving toward unrealistic ideals. Together we work to repair dysfunctional thought patterns, attitudes and beliefs that trigger and perpetuate restrictive eating, purging and excessive eating. I work collaboratively with your other health practitioners. You can recover!
