Healing Your Relationship With Food
Eve Cribbs, LCSW
My practice style is relaxed and rooted in creating a working relationship with the client. I like to work hard with each person to establish relief and get recovery moving. I stay constantly updated in the field and utilize many practice styles including Cognitive Behavioral CBT/DBT, Gestalt, Voice Dialogue, interpersonal, educational, psychodynamic, and humanistic practice modes. I believe that all clients are unique and need to be approached in unique manner, thus I use a variety of what works best for each client.
My professional style is straight forward and interactive. I keep the focus on the client and often suggest activities between sessions to enhance the therapy hour. I work five days a week and am easy to contact. I have a lively practice and would rather see many clients who get well and leave, than a few clients who stay for years. I give each client a full 60 minute hour as I have realized that some of the most productive elements of the session are often experienced in those last 15 minutes.
My area of expertise is eating disorders. I work with many pre and post surgical bariatric patients, anorexics, bulimics, chronic dieters, and Binge/compulsive eaters. I have designed and facilitate a group therapy program named Healing Your Relationship With Food. It is a ten week program designed specifically for compulsive eaters and bulimics looking for a non-diet, Health At Every Size (HAES) alternative to healing the real issues underlying the eating behaviors. It has an aftercare component as well. As the eating problems resolve, the underlying issues surface. The work shifts to issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, addiction transfer, bi-polar and other mental illness, distressing relationships, childhood sexual/physical/emotional abuse and many others. About forty percent of my practice are clients without an eating disorder and have been referred for various problems.
