For some people compulsive eating or dieting is just a way to get rid of bad feelings. The problem is that the bad feelings always come back. Compulsive and addictive behaviors - like obsessive and compulsive disorder, gambling, sexual addictions, eating disorders, cutting, etc. - can work very much like alcohol and substance abuse. They are ways of controlling strong emotional reactions of anxiety, anger, sadness, loneliness or guilt. I use 90-minute and 3-HOUR SESSIONS to identify and fully resolve the roots of your emotional reactions so that they no longer trigger the urge to self-medicate.

Today, eating disorders are spread throughout classes, races, ethnicity, and subcultures. Eating disorders are determined by multiple factors: individual personality traits, physiological predispositions, family patterns, critical experiences such as loss or abuse, the sociocultural influences of gender roles, and the meanings ascribed to food, weight, and appearance as well as the addictive quality of modern day foods. Family & individual therapy can help the whole family system, relieving the blame, self-degradation, & confusion for the individual and gives the family clear guidelines of how to help. The goal is to use food as nourishment & develop satisfying connections with loved ones

Human beings develop habits, and rituals, and addictions to cope with stresses and trauma and emotional pain in living. We compulsively seek to be in control and relieve our tension. A part of the “old brain,” or our primitive defenses, may compensate for emotional pain by prompting us to eat too much, or not enough, or by binging and purging. Once a pattern gets started it becomes more habitual and it is difficult to stop. This is sometimes complicated by a distorted body image where a person thinks he/she is too fat even when normal weight. As a therapist, my approach is to develop a trusting rapport where we can talk about what the client is thinking and feeling about their eating and abo

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.

Eating disorders are often rooted in how one copes with anxiety or past issues. Learn more about the roots of the cause and the symptoms which lead to eating disorders can be alleviated. On top of this, I use chain analysis to help you pinpoint what sets you off, your thought processes, body sensations which once identified, can then be addressed one by one until the problem is manageable.

Whether severely restricting calories, overeating or caught in the binge/purge cycle, if some deep hurt or experience of abuse or trauma is causing you to use food to cope with hard emotions and low self esteem, my treatment approach is helpful. By examining what has happened, reconstructing beliefs and thoughts about it, strengthening your ability to assertively speak up during inner and interpersonal conflicts, and addressing other difficult emotional triggers, my clients learn how to hold strong boundaries, voice needs appropriately, repair self-esteem, and restore more control over what happens to them. You CAN transform your relationship to food. Visit my website for more detail.

If you're overweight and eat for emotional reasons, I can help. I take a "non-diet" approach and believe that when you release the weight from your mind and heart, you'll begin to release the weight from your body. I'll help you identify self-sabotaging beliefs and find other ways to cope so you stop using food for comfort. To learn more about how I'll work with you—and for inspiration and encouragement—check-out my weight loss articles in the resources section of my website at www.dianepetrella.com.

Hello..I worked in a residential treatment facility working with females and eating disorders. There is a lot of science and rational regarding eating disorders, along with individual hypothesis people have formed throughout the years, however, change happens between the client and the therapist and the trust that exists between the two parties. I don't claim to be an expert, however, I do claim I can help you, if you let me.

My approach to eating disorders is to help with the insight. In order to have long-term success over an eating disorder, a person may not only be in a behavioral group/program, but also receive insight-oriented psychotherapy. This will allow the person to have a deep understanding of the meanings of food, their body, and many more factors that contribute to what can often be a life-long struggle. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information.
