I will work with you to understand the beliefs you hold about yourself, so we can understand your relationship to food and your body.

Eating Disorders

You’re tired of hating your body and obsessing about food. You feel out of control, exhausted, out of touch and isolated.  Thoughts of food and weight consume you and you find it difficult to focus on much else.  You keep thinking that when you just reach your “goal weight,” you will be happy.

If you can relate to any of these statements and want help overcoming your struggles with food and weight, therapy can be a safe place to begin.

I have over 10 years of experience as an Eating Disorder Specialist and will work with you to identify the beliefs you hold about yourself, so we can develop a deeper understanding of your relationship to food and your body.

I treat a range of eating disorder/body image struggles, including:

  • Anorexia
  • Bulimia
  • Binge Eating Disorder
  • Compulsive overeating
  • Yo-yo dieting
  • Emotional eating
  • Poor body image

In addition to standard Individual therapy, I offer the following specialized treatment options for Eating Disorders.  These sessions help you practice “real life” situations in a supportive environment. For those of you struggling during meals, whether it relates to challenging yourself on food variety and portion size or wanting to practice becoming more comfortable in public or social atmospheres, these sessions “push the limits” of your eating disorder and help you move forward in recovery.

Meal Session Outing

A 50-Minute therapy session, we go “out” for a meal together. During this session our goals include: addressing the social aspects of restaurant dining, challenging your meal selection, learning adequate portion size, challenging eating disorder behaviors/ thoughts, acknowledging hunger/satiety, and processing the experience.

Snack Session

A 50-Minute therapy session which can be done “in” or “out” of the office. You choose to either bring a snack “in” to eat with me or choose a local restaurant/café for snack “outing.” Goals include: challenging food selection, eating disorder behaviors/thoughts, addressing hunger/satiety, and processing the experience.
