Eating disorders, such as binge eating, anorexia, and bulimia nervosa can not only be physically, emotionally, and financially draining but can also prove fatal. They also cause great grief to family members and friends that witness their loved ones in dire need of help but don’t know what to do or who to turn to. Fortunately, Laurie R. Weiss PHD employs licensed, post-doctoral psychologists and counsellors who have been trained to handle eating disorders quickly and effectively, while avoiding relapses. Below, are just some of the eating disorder services that we provide in San Mateo:
Anorexia and Bulimia
Laurie R. Weiss PHD will identity and diagnose the eating disorder that ails you or your loved one and provide the most effective treatment to eliminate anorexia or bulimia nervosa based on the unique needs and triggers that caused the development of the eating disorder in the first place. For instance, some people develop eating disorders due to stress or depression, and use binge eating or starving themselves as a coping mechanism. That is, the eating disorder serves as a failsafe and is used as a means to ignore the real problem at hand, such as a breakup or the death of a loved one.

Laurie R. Weiss PHD provides group therapy counseling for people afflicted with eating disorders as a means to encourage personal growth and learn about how other people deal with their eating disorders and what led them to develop them. Furthermore, open communication, compassion and non-judgment are always ensured.
