Eating Disorders

Daryl Temkin, Daryl Temkin

Ph.D., Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Eating disorders is a very complicated and serious issue which mainly occurs with woman but a growing number of men are also confronting this. We are still learning as much as we can about eating disorders and the opportunities to effectively treat and overcome this challenge. Caring psychotherapy and counseling along with behavior and cognitive therapies are currently the effective approach to reversing and managing eating disorders. It has been discovered that personal body imaging and family as well as social group messages around food, body size and body image have made for pivotal influences in the emotional trauma around food and eating. Transformation is successful with counseling.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Cruz, CA

I have found the approach of Internal Family Systems that helps clients to get in touch with the parts that keep them stuck in a pattern of unhealthy eating, to be extremely helpful. Sometimes I will invite the entire family to sessions if it seems beneficial so that we can eliminate the stigma and shame often associates with disordered eating and look at new ways in which the entire family might benefit

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

For a new short term, effective approach to Psychotherapy, give me a call or email,
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.
