Often our relationship with food can change as we move through life and experience stressors and/or other mental health challenges. If you notice that you are engaging in emotional eating, food restriction, or other unhelpful eating habits please connect with me. Our relationship with food can not only impact our emotional health but also our brain and physical health. I have additional training in CBT for eating disorders and would be happy to speak to you further related to your specific situation and needs.

Eating disorder can overshadow your life, stealing the joy and self-respect. I have worked with many who struggled with eating disorders and disordered eating and yes, it is possible to fight it and move beyond it. In the therapy with me you become aware of your strengths, your limitations and areas that need strengthening. You discover you are not alone and let the guilt and shame sweep away and become stronger. You learn how to create healthier boundaries, recognize triggers and become emotionally and mentally stronger.

Eating disorders such as bulimia, anorexia, binge eating, and compulsive eating as well preoccupation with weight and shape are quite common in our culture and can be devastating and complex. Often there are severe consequences in terms of productivity, relationships and health. The good news is that it is possible to find our way out of an eating disorder. Whether through individual, family or group therapy, counsellors can assist us in changing our perceptions and behaviours and develop healthy self-esteem, communication, coping skills and emotional well being. (If we could have done it on our own... we would have by now.)

We may not need to learn how to eat - but eating in a balanced way can be quite the trick to learn! If compulsive eating (or avoiding it or overeating and 'getting rid' of it...) is a problem it would seem simple to change this. Sometimes that's true. But if it's not for you, you already know how it has a profound impact on your life. So, like many of our addictions (and I would say that we all have some form of addiction) to change such a pattern can feel impossible. In therapy the trick is to find how the particular 'routine' that you have works - both to help you as well as how it hinders your life. From there, we can plan ways to continue the 'good' yet move beyond what is 'problematic'.

EDs often require services from many care providers however psychotherapy is crucial. EDs mainly are management strategies for coping with high-stress induced by interference with a young person’s self-identity development. The 'culture' (home, social-peer) responsible is one emphasizing image-performance as the basis of one's value/lovability. Strong fear of external judgement, rejection, failure and inattention overwhelms the child's/young person's normal course of healthy growth. Particularly the ages/stages when social esteem-bonding is very important. My approach is to restore connection with one's core 'real' self, from the inside, fostering personal empowerment and sound self-care.

Our struggles with food are rooted in several life events that remain unknown until you have a safe place to explore their impact. How we are raised, our initial relationship with food and how we manage our emotions are all intertwined with nutrition. Seeing food as purely for nourishment at times can be challenging with all the media's mixed messages about nutrition. Our need to control the food we intake takes over and we punish our bodies by over eating or under eating. We develop ways to harm ourselves through the use of food. Together we will explore your relationship with food and develop ways you can nourish your body and soul to embrace food as your happiness medecine.

Eating issues are more about "what's eating you!" Often our food-related issues are signalling that we need to pay attention not only to our body but what is bothering us on the inside. Getting to the inside can be challenging, as the protective layers of eating issues can be difficult to get through. Working with eating disorders requires patience as the progress often occurs at a slow pace.

Does body image effect weight loss? Absolutely. People with poor body image often struggle more with emotional eating as well as the lack of confidence to choose a healthy lifestyle. Research indicates that improving body image can enhance a person's ability to adopt a healthy weight loss plan and be successful (Journal of Behavioural Nutrition and Physical Activity). Learning to accept and love our bodies and ourselves is an important and often a difficult ongoing struggle. Rather than trying primarily to be thin, women should work towards focusing their energy into developing healthier lifestyles as well as experimenting with what weight feels comfortable.

There are both nature and nurture causes to eating disorders. I support individuals to understand the root causes of their eating disorder and reprocess any difficult memories that still bother them today. We will also focus on body acceptance, body positivity, developing healthy core beliefs, managing triggers and how to engage in the world when there is a heavy emphasis on appearance.

A sense of self is easily interrupted by stress, change, and trauma. Maybe you feel like you have never really known yourself and have always been focused on others. Or, maybe, you feel like you have lost a sense of self due to big changes in your life. This could all be tied in with how you feel about your body, especially if it has gone through a change as well. We can offer support for this, including help for: • Body image concerns • Low self-esteem or self-worth • Questioning self-purpose and plan • People pleasing, rescuing and fixing • Chronic guilt, regret and shame

Eating disorders affect more people than is often reported in the media and men are not immune to them. Today's media sets up unrealistic expectations for what is considered "beautiful" or "handsome." Eating disorders can result if we buy into these ideals and engage in behaviours that promote this unrealistic image. There are many types of therapy that can be helpful for those experiencing eating disorders.
