Eating Disorders are often a sign of tremendous pressures that have been building up over time. The onset of disrupted eating patterns can have many causes, but the dynamics of an eating disorder often involves self esteem issues, body image distortions and societal ideas of beauty. The treatment of eating disorders often involves a closer look at the family dynamics too as the family unit is the stage where this battle is fought. There are many public services available, and private practice can be a wonderful addition to the existing services.

Many people struggle with eating issues. Ultimately, food is not the issue - it is about how we feel about ourselves on the inside and how we believe others value us. Even though eating disorders are complex, we can make invaluable changes to improve life and bring peace to your thoughts. Using a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy and exploring the root problems such as poor self-esteem, perfectionism, requiring approval from others - we can change your life.

I view eating disorders as process addictions. I view addictions and compulsions as coping strategies that persist because they work (or once did); but are being identified as disordered because they no longer help the client cope they way they once did. So, sourcing the root of the disorer is essential. There are also specific strategies for altering habitual behaviors that can be quite useful as the client turns from a failing method of coping to one that in fact functions and permits personsl growth toward self-actualization.

Sometimes we deny our needs and this can include our need to eat. The problem is the control others might have over us if we are to reveal our needs. Exploring the need to express our needs and have control over our lives increase our ability to choose. The tangible we create with our bodies that mirror this dilemma can take many forms, but the healing comes from reconnecting to our needs. I have successfully worked with people from a variety of backgrounds to treat a variety of eating disorders and look forward to working with you.

Eating disorders can manifest in a number of forms; including over eating, bulimia and anorexia. A therapist is an integral part of your treatment. Our relationship with food is usually not just physical, but emotional as well. If your emotional relationship with food is not addressed it is difficult to make lasting changes. Often people deal with unpleasant feelings by eating or not eating. I will help you to address feelings and deal with them in a more constructive manner.

Mary, 22, battled with disordered eating, low self-esteem and poor self image for so many years. She struggled on her own before finally opening up in therapy. I suggested she write a secret letter and share her true feelings of shame and embarrassment about her abuse as a child, her promiscuity and her disdain for her own body. Later, we destroyed the letter. I also used guided imagery and mindfulness techniques to change her relationship with negative thoughts. Mary learned to cope by responding appropriately and actively changing her thought patterns. She chose to use new coping skills and engage in healthy relationships to replace her disordered eating.
