Counseling for Eating Disorders
Eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder often develop as ways to cope with overwhelming feelings, that begin to take on a life of their own. Additionally, other disordered eating patterns like orthorexia (obsessive behavior in pursuit of a healthy diet), compulsive overeating, emotional eating, exercise addiction, may negatively impact health and happiness.
I strive to help individuals make peace with food and their bodies. Under the clinical supervision of a psychologist who specializes in eating disorders, I tailor my approach to the individual and work collaboratively with a treatment team that includes physicians and dietitians when appropriate.
Anyone seeking healthier, closer family relationships can benefit from family therapy.
Common reasons for seeking family therapy include:
- Parent-child conflict

- Unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member
Family therapy is necessary to address family issues and heal a family’s wounds. If any of the above scenarios resonates with your family, consider seeking family therapy. Family therapy can be beneficial on many different levels.
Some positive family therapy outcomes are:

Studies show that family therapy is particularly important for families with members who struggle with substance abuse, eating disorders and other behavioral issues. When the whole family grows, each member is better off.
