The Treatment of Eating Disorders
Eating Disorders are extremely complex. I believe that in order to help clients the therapist must work at several levels. Ultimately it is essential that underlying issues are identified, understood and in some way resolved. At the same time, behavior changes need to take place. Clients need hands on tools they can use immediately. They need to learn how to identify and tolerate painful feelins without turning to food, purging or restrictive behavior to cope. From the first session, I offer tools to help clients make changes. I have worked with eating disorders at the inpatient, partial and intensive outpatient level of care and I am the owner and clinical director of New Directions Eating Disorder Center in Sherman Oaks. The treatment of eating disorders often require working with a team. I work closely with a registered dietician, psychiatrist and family practioner who all specialize in the treament of eating disorders.
