As a Registered Psychotherapist, human being, and author of BINGE CRAZY: A Psychotherapist's Memoir of Food Addiction, Mental Illness, Obesity and Recovery (2018), I view seeking help as a strength - requiring the courage and wisdom to reach your own truths. My practice, based in Gestalt therapy - a holistic, here and now approach encompassing any and all aspects of your life - includes other modalities to find what works best for you - from creative forms of expression to more structured methods. In Gestalt, you are the expert (on you) and I am the guide to help you explore what needs healing.

The mental preoccupation with food, eating, weight, body-image and control - and the emotional damage from the frustrations and disappointments along the way - can get worse over time if left unchecked. From my training and lived experience, learning to accept and honor the required journey can be challenging and exciting.

In my work with addiction/addictive behaviors (including food addiction), I tailor each person's treatment to their specific needs, drawing on what's most appropriate from a range of approaches, including 12-step, harm reduction and bio-psycho-social influences. More importantly, I focus on the underlying causes.

Natalie Gold's Groups

FADES: Food Addiction & Disordered Eating Support

FADES, a 6-week support group led by Natalie Gold, RP, of changehappens.ca, is for women who struggle with food addiction or disordered eating of some kind - including emotional eating, food restriction, bulimia, binge eating or compulsive overeating. FADES starts Monday April 23 through June 4 (not May 21). If you can't make this, email me to get on the waiting list. FADES offers support to women who could benefit from some professional guidance within a small group of peers in a safe setting at a low cost ($150 for 6 sessions). However, it is not a substitute for psychotherapy. Phone interview required.
