Eating disorders affect both males and females from a variety of backgrounds and age groups. Cognitive Behavior Therapy is often a most useful approach to eating disorders. A CBT approach emphasizes recognition and identification of negative thought patterns and the way in which they have contributed to an individual's approach towards food and body image. By increasing self-awareness, together we can increase positive emotions.

Eating disorders don't come out of nowhere. Our symptoms happen for a reason. We will explore how you came to have an unhealthy relationship with food and your own body. By unraveling the mystery behind your symptoms, you will begin to heal, and food will become less important with each passing day. You will come to understand that food was never really the answer, even if your entire life revolves around food today. I will help you to understand how to feel your feelings, live your life, and learn to trust in relationships and people instead of food. You are in charge - the food doesn't really have the power that we allow it to have. Let me help you in this healing process. Just ask

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.

Eating Disorders are often very misunderstood. Like addiction, many think the behavior is a choice. Unfortunately, once a person has crossed the line into a true eating disorder they no longer are in control even though that is often just what they were searching for to begin with. I help clients find recovery through empathic counseling. It is possible to find peace with your body and within yourself. Hope is here.

Eating disorders often emerge as a response to other problems. When people are upset or overwhelmed, they develop coping mechanisms, sometimes destructive ones. Some control their eating and weight as a response to scary situations over which they have no control or fall into "emotional eating" rather than eating when hungry. Susan helps people learn the source of their food issues. By learning to manage and be more comfortable with a range of emotions and by developing a broader repertoire of coping strategies for life's challenges, Susan's clients learn to have a healthy relationship with food and with their bodies, even in a society obsessed with appearance and the "perfect" body.

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 email@example.com or 877-606-6161 to learn more about this safe and effective alternative.
