We in the United States have a pretty unhealthy relationship with food. We go out to eat in a restaurant and are served a meal that has as much fat and calories as we're supposed to eat in a whole day, sometimes more. Then we look at a magazine or turn on the TV and see stick-thin models who look like they never eat. What are you supposed to do with that? We all need food to live, but most of us also feel like we're supposed to look like those models. We want to be perfect. We want to be in control. But so often we feel like we have no control at all. If you're ready to find a healthier, more manageable relationship with food, I'd love to help.

I work with people who struggle with using food as emotional comfort. Whether you are preparing for lapband surgery, trying to control your diabetes, or simply get healthier emotionally, counseling can help. Many times people with eating disorders are struggling with thoughts such as "I'm not good enough" or "I need to make sure everyone is happy". I help people identify the negative thoughts that repeat in their minds and practice "fact checking" to replace those destructive generalized thoughts with the truth of the moment. As we practice being more accurate in how we speak to ourselves we can also minimize our need to escape with food.

Although different eating disorders spring from different issues, food is a basic emotional as well as physical need from the day you were born. We can use it to satisfy, temporarily many other needs. Or we can pridefully deny ourselves. In addition, we live in a culture that can have very harsh, judgmental attitudes about bodies, attitudes that we internalize without noticing. You may have been told that your body image is distorted, that other people do not see you the way you do. Self-acceptance is the beginning. It is not your fault you are in this condition, although it is your responsibility to get past it. The second step is self-observance, then self-love. I can help.

I work with eating disorders that result in obesity. I also do psychological evaluations for those who are planning to have bariatric surgery. It is important to understand the underlying causes for this to have a successful outcome. It is also essential to identify the triggers that result in overeating or eating the wrong foods. There are two phases during therapy, that of weight loss, and that of weight maintenance. I provide a nonjudgmental space to deal with this issue while treating the whole person, not the eating disorder.
