According to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD) up to 24 million people of all ages and gender suffer from an eating disorder (anorexia, bulimia, and binge-eating disorder) in the United States.

Eating Disorders are conditions defined by abnormal eating habits that may be characterized either by insufficient or excessive food intake to the detriment of an individuals physical or mental health.

There are several approaches to working with the individual suffering with an eating disorder. Cognitive-behavior therapy has been shown to be effective in modifying ones thinking and ones behaviors around food. A person in therapy could also expect to examine patterns that may have impacted their relationship with food.

In addition to traditional psychotherapy approaches to the treatment of eating disorders, Dr. Siegel is an expert in conducting psychosocial evaluations for individuals contemplating surgical options for weight loss.

If you suspect that you may be exhibiting eating disorder behaviors or eating disorder thinking, contact Dr. Siegel for an initial evaluation.
