Lose Weight Without Dieting!
Win the Diet War with Dr. Nina
Psychoanalyst Dr. Nina Savelle-Rocklin helps people make peace with food and feel good about themselves
Millions of Americans struggle with an unhealthy and unhappy relationship with food. Dietary changes, no matter how healthy, fail to get to the underlying causes of binge eating, compulsive overeating and emotional eating. A psychoanalyst who has personally overcome eating issues, Dr. Nina Savelle-Rocklin, Psy.D., brings a fresh perspective to the battle against obesity and disordered eating.
"I help people identify the underlying conflicts and issues that lead to overeating, so they can have a healthier, happier relationship with food, and themselves," says Dr. Nina, who treats patients through her Los Angeles-based practice.
Dr. Nina's blog, Make Peace With Food, was named by Healthline as "Best Eating Disorder Blog" in 2012, 2013, and 2014, a "Top Eating Disorder Blog" in 2013, and a "Top 50 Mindful Eating Site of 2014." Her popular podcast, Win The Diet War with Dr. Nina, was named "New & Noteworthy" by iTunes and her video series, The Dr. Nina Show, is currently on YouTube. She is currently writing a book based on the principles and ideas in her blog and podcast.
A highly-trained and experienced clinician, Dr. Nina helps people learn to relate to themselves in a new way, unshackling them from conflicts and eating issues that in many cases have persisted for decades.
While many people associate psychoanalysis with Freud and a coldly professional therapeutic method, she has a different approach, bringing her own experience to help men and women of all ages to win the war against eating problems.
"I know how shaming it is to talk about having an eating disorder," she says. "I stress the fact these are people who are struggling with food for a reason. Whatever is going on with food does not define you."
Dr. Nina shares wisdom for treating people's eating problems including:
Why We Seek Comfort in Food – "Our first experience of love and connection and relationship with another person is being fed. It is a profound, deeply imbedded way of trying to re-experience the blissful state of our infancy."
Getting to the Root of the Problem – "Most people view whatever is going on with food as 'the' problem instead of a 'symptom' of the problem," she says. "For permanent change, you have to address the underlying issues."
How to Best Help a Friend or Loved One – "First and foremost, don't be the food police!" Dr. Nina offers advice on how to help a loved one or friend who has food, weight or body image problems.
Dr. Nina has written extensively on disordered eating and various compulsive behaviors, such as binge shopping and spending. She can speak to other examples of excess and addictive behaviors in our culture, and shed light on how to overcome the self-judgment and criticism that fuels these patterns.
"Whatever is going on with food is just the symptom. It's always about something going on underneath," she says. "It really is about making peace with yourself."
