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.

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!

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.

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.
