    Have you ever said, “I don’t work with eating disorder clients?” Statistics show that even though you don’t work with that direct population, you are seeing them show up in your practice. Many clients who present for treatment with anxiety, depression, chemical dependency, trauma, and other co-occurring issues, also have identified eating disorders. From overeating to undereating and compulsive exercise to no exercise, dysfunctional eating patterns need to be addressed in order for there to be progress with the presenting concern. However, if you are not an eating disorder professional, how do you know when to refer or when to treat it as disordered eating, or following an “addiction” model for treatment? Many therapeutic modalities can be very effective for dysfunctional eating behaviors, however there are also some key differences when treating a client with an eating disorder. We will discuss treatment of the core issues, including shame and control. Sub-clinical eating disorders, which are much less talked about, such as drunkorexia and orthorexia, will be reviewed with key signs to look for within clients.

    Caryn Attianese is the owner of Empowerment Treatment & Counseling Center for Wellness (ETC). She specializes in the treatment of eating disorders, trauma, addiction, and relationship issues. Caryn uses her professional and personal experience with eating disorders to connect with others. Using a variety of theoretical orientations and focusing on the Developmental Model of Immaturity by Pia Mellody, she enjoys assisting clients in uncovering their core issues and support them in feeling uncomfortable emotions. She is also trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and EMDR.

    Caryn is a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS), and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the states of AZ and MO. She has worked as a clinician, trainer, and supervisor at industry leading treatment centers including the Meadows, Sierra Tucson, and Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders where she was the Director of Clinical Services. She is a certified supervisor for associate level counselors in AZ and MO and those seeking their CEDS credentials.  She is a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) where she served as the past president of the Phoenix Chapter. Caryn also serves as adjunct faculty for the Masters in Counseling program with Grand Canyon University.
