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.

Eating disorders are initially attempts at self-medication for a troubled soul. Initially, the activity relieves the pain when there didn’t seem to be another option or resource. This pain relief becomes a disorder when a person develops an inner compulsion (unnoticed at first), which begins to negatively impact other areas of life. By this point, an insidious denial creeps in to protect the behavior and the chaos, both inner and outer, now runs your life. For the ED resolution, clearly one shoe does not fit all. In addition to illuminating the healing landscape for you, our focus in working together is to relieve present suffering and pave the way for the most graceful movement possible.

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.

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.

We will look at family, friends, and romantic relationships in your life, and what you learned about food and your body. We will uncover fears you may have that have to do with relationships and dating. If you are anorexic or bulimic I can work with you if you are not struggling with a life threatening situation.

Licensed Clinical PhD Psychologist

I work with people struggling with shame around their body, and those who are grappling with weight loss. These issues often involve an exploration of the complex feelings that one has about his or her body and the ways in which she/he wants it to change. I work with many postpartum and pregnant women around body and weight related struggles. When health concerns come into play, I often work collaboratively with other professionals to help people achieve physical health as they work on the psychological aspects of the work within therapy. Taking the first step towards therapy is often the hardest, and I invite you to schedule a consultation.

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!

I currently have patients with bulimia and some with bulimia which stems from a history of childhood sexual abuse. These are co-morbid (exist together) in many people. The continuity of individual therapy, along with whatever else may be necessary over time (nutritional counseling, or for the dual diagnoses, potentially joining groups that deal with the confluence of these factors; i.e. sexual abuse, I have found that bulimia can be modified or eliminated.

Eating disorders are about more than just the food one eats. At the Lukin Center, our therapists work with clients to target the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors associated with eating. Clients often have thoughts about their body and the way they look, feel the need to control their caloric intake in order to be perfect, or create a number of rituals surrounding food. Our therapists use cognitive behavioral therapy, one of the best treatments for eating disorders, in order to treat the person and not just the disease.
