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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Compulsive overeating is triggered by poor eating habits, emotional and psychological stresses (anxiety and depression) and making poor food choices. In order to lose weight permanently you must change your thinking about yourself and your relationship to food. Food can serve many functions: companion, distractor, means to avoid emotions and activity. In the 20 week "Mind Set Program" you will learn how: your emotions and thoughts set you into motion to overeat, to eat in a healthy manner promoting weight loss and a healthy attitudes towards food, and create your "personal healthy environment" where you incorporate exercise and nutritious foods into your daily life.

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 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.

Our early caregiver’s attunement and responsiveness to our hunger shapes our trust in the world to value us and nurture us. Although we may mature and develop on many dimensions of personal effectiveness we may for many reasons remain blind to and cling to reactive patterns of eating that reflect outmoded and ineffective strategies for regulating our self esteem, our emotions, managing stress, preserving valued attachments, etc. Within the context of a secure therapy alliance we can observe, reflect on, put words to emotional hunger and neutralize your fears of healthy strategies to feed this hunger. Eating will then be put in perspective and cease to monopolize your time and energies at the ....

Having a good relationship with food is a struggle for many people today and can be seen as a topic of interest on many covers of magazines and newspapers these days. Since we all need food to live having a food addiction or disorder is particularly difficult as it is not a substance you can throw away and never pick up again.
