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.

For clients facing Binge-Eating Disorders, concurrent with mood and/or anxiety disorders, I approach clients from person-centered, existential, and cognitive behavioral perspectives. I view BEDs and disordered eating as having it's origins in multiple areas to include addiction, emotional triggers, low self-concept, shame, and so forth. As a result, I would work with a binge-eating disordered client on the physical, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual front and educate the client on the cycle of emotional eating, addiction, and shame. In addition to working through the underlying shame, low self-concept, and low stress tolerance, I would employ practical and easy to use CBT tools.

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.

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.

Eating disorders, such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating are rooted in inability to handle emotions of fear and anger, and developing weight and food issues as coping mechanisms. EDs can have life-threatening consequences for females and males. Treatment focuses on learning new coping skills for dealing with stress, negativity, emotion regulation, and awareness of changes in attitude, spiraling thinking patterns, beliefs and choice making. Meditation, deep breathing, interpersonal and experiential psychotherapy are also part of treatment, to complement work with nutritionist for meal planning, nutritional basics and relapse prevention as necessary.

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.
