The challenge to treating eating disorder is the mere fact that many of the clients are usually in treatment against their will. I see clients as young as seven years old with eating disorder. Using cognitive behavior therapy I deal with both their thinking and their actions. Negative critical thinking often results in feelings of shame, anxiety leading to the weight controlling behavior. It's an ugly cycle of continuous negative self evaluation. I work with individuals to examine specific factors that are maintaining their disorder. I also work closely with the referring physician to create a multidisciplinary treatment plan for the benefit of the client.

Eating disorders are very complicated and require a team approach to treat. If you suspect you have an eating disorder that is moderate to severe, you might require an initial period of work with a team to help you medically stabilize. This support can include a variety of settings, depending upon how severe the eating disorder is. However, for those who have stabilized and are in active recovery, an outpatient therapy approach may help maintain gains. Outpatient work is best done during your committed recovery. You'll work to develop a kinder relationship with yourself and to develop a range of coping and communication strategies.

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.
