Eating disorders are not about food. They are about control. As a child, we don't have much control and sometimes we are placed in situations where we are helpless to prevent abuse, neglect, and mistreatment. Just as the alcoholic drinks to "numb out" to their emotional pain, the young woman with an eating disorder will soothe herself with food before purging, or restrict food to combat the painful feeling of helplessness. Eating disorders are treatable. You must work with a therapist who has expertise in working with trauma. Such a therapist will work gently with you, at your own pace, and in a way that will assist you in healing the pain that is driving the eating disorder.

Eating disorders need to be taken seriously as they can be life threatening if left untreated. Treatment for eating disorders typically requires a team of professionals to ensure that all aspects of an individual are properly cared for. The psychotherapy aspect of the treatment puzzle begins much like detective work. I explore the various compounding motivating factors that precipitate the eating disorder. Some of these factors are anxiety, perfectionism, and societal pressures. The end goal of psychotherapy is to provide you with coping skills to reach you goals in a way that allows you to feel in control of yourself without jeopardizing your livelihood.
