Having an eating disorder can rob you of so many joys in life. The disorder takes over and it becomes very difficult to focus on anything else. I can help you to discover what lies beneath the compulsion to restrict or to binge, and to regulate your food intake. I will refer you to more appropriate services if I feel that you need more of a multi-disciplinary approach, for instance if I feel that your disorder has affected your physical health in ways that I can not help you with.

Marriage & Family & Individual Psychotherapist

301 - 267 O'Connor Street, Ottawa, Ontario K2P 1V3 | 1-613-238-2222

When I see a client with an eating disorder, I do not focus on the disordered behaviour as such. Rather, together we explore the client's family or origin and attachment history--from which our belief system about ourselves and the world are derived. I see this disordered behaviour as most often the result of the debilitating effect of an attachment wound.

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.
