Eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia and binge eating disorder. Eating disorders are complex illnesses requiring a team approach in treatment. For successful treatment, I advise medical nutrition therapy along with psychotherapy and medical care. If needed, I am able to refer you to area therapists and physicians with training and/or experience in treating eating disorders.
Many individuals struggle with disordered eating behaviors that do not meet clinical criteria for an eating disorder. However, all individuals with emotion-based eating behaviors benefit from receiving expert medical nutrition therapy and psychotherapy. These individuals may have a history of obesity, poorly managed nutritional self-care or chronic dieting behaviors.
