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.
