There is a commonly held view that eating disorders are a lifestyle choice. Eating disorders are actually serious and often fatal illnesses that cause severe disturbances to a person’s eating behaviors. Obsessions with food, body weight, and shape may also signal an eating disorder. Common eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder. To reduce or eliminate binge-eating and purging behaviors, people may undergo cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is another type of psychotherapy that helps a person learn how to identify distorted or unhelpful thinking patterns and recognize and change inaccurate beliefs.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Coach

Many people have problems with food, ranging from mild over-eating to severe anorexia, binging, bulimia, food phobia, and selective eating. Outpatient treatment is most helpful with problems in the mild to moderate range. Severe eating disorders usually require a more complex treatment plan. I can assess the level of your problem and make recommendations for treatment. These can include working with me using a treatment plan that we will develop together, on a schedule that meets your needs. I might also refer you for further evaluation, to a medical professional, and/or to more intensive treatment. Contact me to discuss your personal situation and we'll figure out what is best for you.

Diane Calder, Registered State of Oregon

Clinical Mental Health Counselor, MA

In treating some eating disorders, it is important to recognize the cognitive distortions and/or traumas that have made the need to control so important to the client. In other eating disorders, the need to control is displaced by a need to soothe and comfort oneself. In most of these cases, an integrative approach of emotion-focused work, dialectical strategies, as well as cognitive behavioral treatment can many times give the client the tools that they need in order to find better ways to cope and live.

Does food exert a powerful and negative influence in your life? Does food provide the comfort you do not have in your relationships? Together, we can look at the powerful attraction that food has for you and work to overcome it so that food is put in its place: noticing when you are full, able to savor with pleasure what you eat and eating to provide nutrition and healing for your body. We will work to strengthen real self love and compassion in order to break the enslavement to food.

Eating Disorder Counselor

Sarah Gregory, MA, LMHCA

MA Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Oak Grove

For those struggling with an eating disorder, please hear me when I say there is hope for full healing and recovery! When working through this struggle, I take a two-prong approach: initially, as we begin to build trust and understanding within the therapeutic relationship, our focus is primarily behavior-oriented. I utilize cognitive behavior therapy during this time, which essentially looks at how our thoughts influence our behavior and, thus, correcting unhealthy thoughts can correct unhealthy behaviors. Additionally, I think it is important over time to search out the root cause that bore these symptoms in order to prevent future relapse. I would be honored to walk with you through this.

Deborah Orandon, MS, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Our relationship with food expresses our most basic feelings about having a body. But those words don't convey what eating disorders feel like. Compulsions to binge, starve or purge feel like they are in control, not you--they don't respond to reason. It's a secret life-or-death battle all day, every day that no one knows you are fighting. It's fraught with anxiety--exhausting & it is hard to imagine that anything could end it. But Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a way to listen differently to the feelings themselves in order to access the story of what is really wrong, & what you truly need to calm these terrified inner parts involved in the cycle, & to create change from the inside out.
