Helping people with Eating Disorders involves getting the person to like themselves, building up their self esteem and self worth. Education is necessary to confront faulty beliefs and actions and learn about healthy lifestyles. I am empathetic and understanding, but do not like to see people deliberately harming their bodies through either denying food or eating then binging. It may take awhile, but through a good caring, client therapist rapport and relationship, and using person centered and cognitive behavioral approaches, one can recover from eating disorders and live a happy, healthy, and normal life.

Self/Body image is often at the root of eating disorders. Our culture provides many impossible beauty exceptions. Food can become our friend, or enemy in coping with our perceived fears and insecurities. Sometimes food is used to comfort us, we become overweight in a cycle of "trying to feeling good enough". Sometimes, we fear food and restrict, or eliminate food due to fears of gaining weight, and our body image becomes distorted. Learning to love and care for our body and self takes vulnerability and trust. I am here for you, as a safe person, to assist you in stopping the process of self shame, blame, and judgement that keeps you in a hurtful, unhealthy relationship with food.

Eating disorders are treated with cognitive behavioral and EMDR, to help us access an individual’s entire brain, and in doing so, we are accessing the holistic self: emotions, sensations, cognitions, and any other relevant material that may emerge.”EMDR therapy can help you to get out of this frustrating cycle by allowing you to feel the pain you are running from, develop compassion for yourself, and learn to accept and love yourself. This sounds simple but the process takes time and dedicated lifestyle changes. The rewards are a happier, less addictive lifestyle with more pleasure and less pain.EMDR therapy can be very helpful in recreating

Ashburn Psychological Services offers treatment for eating disorders. Proper diagnosis and treatment are essential for improvement since eating disorders are complex and often comorbid with other mental health concerns. Cognitive-behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive remediation therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, family therapy, behavior therapy, and music therapy are some of the approaches used to successfully treat eating disorders. At times, increased family involvement, medication and hospitalization is needed. We at Ashburn Psychological Services are here to help.

Eating disorders to include bulimia, anorexia nervosa and binge eating disorder are all painful and complicated issues. I work with clients to heal in a shame-free environment. Both physical concerns of the body and emotional concerns of the heart are explored to help the client towards recovery. Often family members are involved in parts of the therapy to help the client in his or her healing process.

Identifying an eating disorder is often very complicated and challenging. Individuals who suffer from an eating disorder may be unwilling to accept the truth about the harmful nature of their actions.Eating disorders are characterized by a preoccupation with weight, body image, and /or food, but the reasons why an eating disorder develops are much more widely varied. We use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to treat eating disorders. This is a proven effective approach to working with this very complex issue.

Managing an eating disorder can be long-term challenge. These disorders often coexist with anxiety, depression, or substance abuse. In many cases, symptoms can become life threatening. Counseling is the most important aspect in the treatment of these disorders. I am a proponent of a comprehensive approach that also emphasizes medical monitoring and nutrition. My treatment plans help determine your needs, and establish goals and guidelines. I emphasize: normalizing eating patterns, learning skills to improve mood and eating habits, developing ways to transform negative thoughts and behaviors, adopting relationship and stress coping skills, and developing mindfulness and a healthy life-style. I recommend group support and family therapy as a part of a...(view profile to read more)

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.

I approach eating disorders much the same way as I approach other compulsive behaviors: I view them as faulty coping strategies (see the paragraph on addiction). Additionally, I look at eating disorder behavior as symbolic and thus help clients to understand the "story" that their behavior is communicating on a deeper level. I don't focus on things like not counting calories, simple behavior modification, or weight gain/loss. These are just details of the underlying emotional issues.
