Life’s inequalities have a way of shaping the way we think and understand the world around us. Like many of us, those inequalities led me to a lot of search and discovery that eventually influenced my decision to pursue a career focused in helping others. Of keen importance to me as a clinician, is proper diagnosis and discovery of root causes of emotional imbalance. The process of identifying inner strengths helps individuals develop courage, gain insight, and change perspective. The process of exploring our own challenges would not be complete without addressing Relationships and Spirituality - both of which are like silent partners in our everyday search for life balance. Although it can be easy to “write off” or minimize the significance of relationship challenges and lack of spirituality, these two aspects of the “Self” carry more weight than most of us would like to admit. As we join together, and the therapeutic process develops, so will motivation, hope, and self-awareness.

Eating Disorders 101
Let’s understand the stakes - eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder. The mortality rate for anorexia alone is 12 times higher than all causes of death among 15-24 year old females. That being said, getting proper treatment at the onset of an eating disorder is vital. Proper treatment involves a multidisciplinary team including a therapist, nutritionist, and psychiatrist, all with extensive eating disorder experience.
The specific cause of an eating disorder can vary greatly from person to person, but it is rarely a simple issue of wanting to look a certain way or an issue about food itself. Eating disorder treatment involves looking at the underlying issues and treating the behaviors of the eating disorder (restricting or purging food, binge eating, over exercising) as a symptom rather than a disease. Often times the patient is expressing a certain feeling or feelings through the use of eating disordered behaviors. By getting to the root of the disorder and teaching healthy life skills to replace unhealthy behaviors we can truly put an end to the cycle.
