Emotional Eating & Binging Counseling – The Reconnect Relationship™ Therapy approach
The therapist we match you with will help you to explore the causes as well as the triggers of your emotional eating – including binge eating or disorder eating patterns– and work with you to come up with effective coping strategies to assist you in forging a different path.
They can also help with a customized plan to bring about healthy change and teach you techniques and tools which will help you better manage triggers to binge, overeat or employ other unhealthy habits, which invariably come up in your life.
Your therapist or psychologist will assist you to remain on track with your therapy goals and objectives, by providing ongoing emotional support and pinpointing any potential barriers to your progress.
In adapting the treatment to your specific needs, therapists often employ a specific approach called CBT or Cognitive-Behavioral therapy, or they may combine several additional techniques, which may suit your situation more appropriately.
At times medication may also be suggested (subject to the recommendations of your MD or psychiatrist).

The therapists affiliated to Reconnect Relationship in Beverly Hills and Laguna Beach have training and experience in treating eating disorders in many different forms.
Emotional eating is the practice of consuming excessive quantities of food — oftentimes “comfort” or fast foods which are most often unhealthy to begin with and this occurs in response to feelings versus hunger. Experts estimate that 75% of overeating is caused by emotions. Food cannot cure unpleasant feelings, which leads to excessive or unconscious eating. This habit unchecked can evolve into emotional dependence on food and feeling guilty is a natural, ingrained response to doing something bad
