Eating Disorders

While working with individuals struggling with disordered eating, I provide a safe space in which each client can process their thoughts and emotions surrounding their relationship with food. I work with my clients to examine their eating patterns and to implement alternative behaviors and coping skills to change those patterns. I often utilize narrative therapy techniques while working with clients experiencing disordered eating. Narrative therapy focuses on each client authoring a new story for themselves. In other words, who you've been doesn't have to be who you will always be.

I frequently refer my clients who struggle with disordered eating to seek consultation from a registered dietitian and a medical doctor. Eating disorders are mental and emotional at their core, but they have the potential to disrupt overall physical and nutritional well-being. 

I often work closely with the families of my clients who experience disordered eating. Incorporating family members into therapy is beneficial, as it invites the family to become a part of treatment and the client's recovery.
