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. I help people gain a better understanding and relationship of how food is fuel and pleasure and how to strike a good balance between our needs and desires.

Holistic Psychologist, Author, Focalizer

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.

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.

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. Contact kevin@kevinfleminphd.com or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.

Ellen Carni, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Island Park

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 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 Disorder Counselor

Joan Warren, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Island Park

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.

Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

Within driving distance of Island Park

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 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.
