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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Treating eating disorders requires that we examine other contributing painful factors besides food itself. Problems with self image, maintaining control, especially in transitional life stages, family relations and past trauma may trigger difficulty in regulating eating habits. I have specific professional training and personal experience in dealing with the role eating plays in our daily existence. I offer understanding and support for your struggle to maintain healthy habits while feeling pressured.
