Do you feel controlled by food, rather than in control of it ? Are you obsessed with eating, dieting or bingeing? Does your scale determine your mood? Is your life strongly impacted by your weight? Life doesn't have to be a weight struggle. Learn the difference between head and body hunger. Decipher what your obsessive behavior is really saying. Acquire physical, mental and emotional balance. Whether it is eating, drinking, anger, spending, controlling, an addiction is a mal-adaptive attempt at managing feelings and escaping discomfort.

While I have had a general practice for over 25 years, eating disorders are of special interest to me, particularly the "binge-purge" cycle that plagues so many women obsessed with being thin. It is important to understand how counterproductive habits have been useful, if we are to replace them with healthier behaviors.

Along with a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and a License in Marriage and Family Therapy, I have training in EMDR, Hypnotherapy, Eating Disorders, Alcoholism, PTSD, OCD, and Couples Therapy. I have done research with the Family Recovery Project in Palo Alto at the MRI and have been published in Alcoholism Treatment Quarterly.
