Eating disorders are a broad spectrum of “too much” behaviors. They can stem from always seeing that image of that potato chip and not being able to say “no”. Or they may be much more serious. Indeed in my 20 year experience, eating problems are not usually related to food, but are related to unresolved or suppressed emotions. Using advanced techniques, we aim for a personal and confidential release of those emotional weights, freeing you to make healthier and ultimately beneficial choices.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Annee Ackerman, Ph.D.

Psychologist

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.

Eating Disorders have many aspects to them including "emotional eating" to numb your painful feelings or anger. They may include over-exercise or a distorted body image. Ms. Tracey helps you to uncover the hidden s emotions which cause the addiction aspect of eating disorders. When you learn to stop numbing your feelings by anorexia, bulemia and overeating, the behaviors stop. Also, with a distorted body image, Ms. Tracey can help you to explore what has fueled that in the past and what compulsions accompany it. Compulsions are often a way of dealing with overwhelming circumstances that you cannot control. Ms. Tracey will help you to empower yourself.

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 Disorder Counselor

Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Laurence Harbor

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.

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.

Michael Barmak, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Laurence Harbor

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.

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.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Michael Picucci, PhD, MAC, SEP

Holistic Psychologist, Author, Focalizer

Within driving distance of Laurence Harbor

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.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

An eating disorder can be experienced as extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding weight and food. Eating disorders are serious emotional and physical problems that can have life-threatening consequences. CBT can be a useful way of learning how to cope with the urges and compensatory behaviors and understanding the negative thinking patterns that leads to feeling shame and guilt around weight. Together, we will work on changing your thinking and behaviors around eating to help alleviate the negative feelings.
