Eating Disorders have many aspects to them including "emotional eating" to numb your painful feelings or anger. They may include over-exercise or a distorted body image. Ms. Tracey helps you to uncover the hidden s emotions which cause the addiction aspect of eating disorders. When you learn to stop numbing your feelings by anorexia, bulemia and overeating, the behaviors stop. Also, with a distorted body image, Ms. Tracey can help you to explore what has fueled that in the past and what compulsions accompany it. Compulsions are often a way of dealing with overwhelming circumstances that you cannot control. Ms. Tracey will help you to empower yourself.

Eating disorders are a broad spectrum of “too much” behaviors. They can stem from always seeing that image of that potato chip and not being able to say “no”. Or they may be much more serious. Indeed in my 20 year experience, eating problems are not usually related to food, but are related to unresolved or suppressed emotions. Using advanced techniques, we aim for a personal and confidential release of those emotional weights, freeing you to make healthier and ultimately beneficial choices.

Body image, unhealthy eating patterns and low self esteem all affect the way we treat our bodies. Our bodies are meant to be there to protect us and make us feel safe; but sometimes we have a hard time taking the best care of ourselves in the way that would be best. Id like to help you gain insight to what is going on; to understand why you may be choosing choices that may be hurting you in some way. Lets explore and understand, while gaining skills so you can better function-wholesome with you body, mind and soul.

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. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.

Over the years I have had a number of clients who suffer from anorexia or bulimia. Generally these are young women who are convinced that their misguided eating habits and distorted view of their body are necessary and "normal." Using a gentle but honest approach, I try to help them see the many ways they are hampering their health and their relationships through maintaining their disorder. In time, if they stick with my program, they work through the internal conflicts that underlie the eating disorder and begin to thrive in their personal and professional lives.

Eating disorders, in the framework I use, are manifestations of deeper emotional issues that need to be resolved. I view eating disorders as true addictions that are deeply intertwined with true emotional addictions. In focusing on underlying emotional addictions, which can have extremely destructive repercussions in many domains, including eating patterns, I've been able to offer a great deal of help to people with eating disorders.

Eating disorders are initially attempts at self-medication for a troubled soul. Initially, the activity relieves the pain when there didn’t seem to be another option or resource. This pain relief becomes a disorder when a person develops an inner compulsion (unnoticed at first), which begins to negatively impact other areas of life. By this point, an insidious denial creeps in to protect the behavior and the chaos, both inner and outer, now runs your life. For the ED resolution, clearly one shoe does not fit all. In addition to illuminating the healing landscape for you, our focus in working together is to relieve present suffering and pave the way for the most graceful movement possible.

Eating disorders take life in a variety of forms -- some obvious and some more subtle -- but they always create isolation, pain, and separation from life and loved ones. I work with women and men to break out of the prison of eating and body image disorders. Whether you are suffering from rigid restriction, binge purge cycles, obsession with diet and exercise or compulsive eating, we will work together to understand the meaning of the disorder in your personal history and current life. Gently and without judgement, I will support you to take risks toward changes that will take you in the direction of freedom and a life without rules, restrictions or acting on destructive impulses.

Treating eating disorders requires that we examine other contributing painful factors besides food itself. Problems with self image, maintaining control, especially in transitional life stages, family relations and past trauma may trigger difficulty in regulating eating habits. I have specific professional training and personal experience in dealing with the role eating plays in our daily existence. I offer understanding and support for your struggle to maintain healthy habits while feeling pressured.

An eating disorder is characterized by abnormal association of food and body image. The pattern of eating is often an expression of mistaken beliefs as well as false sense of self control. An eating disorder is actually only the symptom of several underline problems in that person’s life. Eating disorders are the result of the interplay among biological, psychological, familial, and societal factors. Genetics, societal pressure for thinness and beauty, low self-esteem, and life stress may all contribute to the development of an eating disorder. Psychotherapy treatment will help you develop healthy relationship with your body and the food you eat.

Eating disorders reflect a disordered approach to our own nourishment. In my practice I have found that this disorder develops as an early coping strategy to help deal with a disorder in the family system. In our work together we will untangle the contributing factors and develop a more supportive vision and approach to getting what you need in your life. Concurrently, we will work holistically to insure that you get the nutrition of body, mind and spirit that is your birthright.

One priority is your motivation to change in terms of pathological eating behaviors. I will work with you to increase and maintain that motivation. The hoped for outcome is a restoration to a healthy body weight, stabilizing accompanying symptoms and medical conditions of the eating disorder, reducing or eliminating negative behaviors including bingeing, purging, and compulsive exercise, building self-esteem and improving body image, learning new coping skills for dealing with stressful situations, learning nutrition and healthy, flexible eating habits, addressing underlying psychological problems, such as core low self-esteem, mood intolerance and interpersonal difficulties.

I help clients with mild eating disorders that are not causing any medical complications. This might look like binge eating when you are anxious in order to stuff down feelings of heartbreak, loneliness or helplessness. I can help you learn how to manage these deep painful feelings rather than trying to avoid them by overeating. Once you learn that you can feel these difficult feelings than you no longer have to avoid them with food.

Eating disorders are about more than just the food one eats. At the Lukin Center, our therapists work with clients to target the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors associated with eating. Clients often have thoughts about their body and the way they look, feel the need to control their caloric intake in order to be perfect, or create a number of rituals surrounding food. Our therapists use cognitive behavioral therapy, one of the best treatments for eating disorders, in order to treat the person and not just the disease.

If you are thinking about addressing an eating disorder, please consider contacting me. Eating disorders are different, but many have serious medical risks. I am not an alarmist and will work with you collaboratively to ensure you and I share goals for therapy. Since I worked for years in a research center's weight loss program for years, I receive many eating disorder referrals. Of course, losing weight is not what every case calls for, but regardless, many of the principles and knowledge required to lose weight, can also help people learn to accept gaining a little weight and even accepting themselves and how they look. I approach eating issues in a comprehensive or holistic manner.

Eating disorders are often an attempt at control in a life where something else is not working, out of control, and in desperate need of repair. I work with individuals who are struggling with forms of binge eating, bulimia, anorexia, restrictive eating, and exercise bulimia. These behaviors may have emerged from or overlap with depression, anxiety, grief and mourning. I work both in the here-and-now and explore any history that may have aided in the development of the destructive behavior. I encourage family sessions when appropriate to aid in recovery.

You will learn what food habits you have adopted over time and will explore the root for these habits. You will learn how your thoughts and emotions influence the eating behavior and will develop skills to help you heal. I do not work with severe cases of anorexia and bulimia or eating disorders stemming from abuse or trauma. I do work with disordered eating stemming from emotional stress.

If you have struggled unsuccessfully with weight loss, I will help you by looking at all the things that have gotten in your way of healthy weight loss. We will look at family, friends, and romantic relationships in your life, and what you learned about food and your body. We will uncover fears you may have that have to do with relationships and dating. If you are anorexic or bulimic I can work with you if you are not struggling with a life threatening situation. Recovered anorexics or bulimics who have more work to do in therapy to clarify the issues entrenched in their behavior, and emotional triggers for unhealthy behavior.
