Counseling for Overeating

If you’ve spent years trying (and often failing) to resist your urges to overeat, you are not alone. We live in a society that exerts a great deal of food pressure on all of us. Most of us have been raised with the unrealistic expectation that our lives should work just fine if we eat anything we want and hardly ever exert ourselves. It can’t possibly work, of course, but it’s very hard to let go of a fantasy that we have wanted for so long to believe.

Your overeating is driven from forces beyond your conscious awareness, which is why you can’t simply will your way out of it even though you want to. Learning to see those forces helps you to take back control in your life so you can live in greater peace with food. It takes some very focused work to accomplish this. I can help.
