Eating Disorders Counseling

Therapy with Newport Beach Registered Dietitian

Anorexia, bulimia, food addictions, and body image issues are on the rise in our population for both men and women.  It can be a scary and confusing time for both clients and their families as they try to understand what is happening.  Even living or working in Newport Beach can be particularly challenging due to a perceived emphasis on beauty and body image.

My background as a registered dietitian and a therapist gives me unique insight into helping those who struggle with food issues, binging, restricting, purging, compulsive exercise, obsession with weight and body dissatisfaction.

Counseling for Eating Disorders

In our Eating Disorder Counseling, we will work on the BODY with nutrition and controlling cravings; the FEELINGS – addressing anxiety, depression, self esteem; and THINKING – obsessing about calories, carbohydrates, fat grams, the gym, and the scale.  Together we will build EMPOWERMENT, by finding your voice, utilizing boundaries, and developing safer and healthier coping skills. Our focus is to normalize eating and change your relationship with food and your body.

Eating Disorders can be conceptualized as disorders of self-regulation.  In our therapy together, I create a warm and non-judgmental environment where the underlying issues and concerns of both the client and the family can be brought to light and explored.
