Hi there, thanks for asking. You can find such a doctor in a big city like NY or even closer cities to you for sure. The therapist will focus on the dynamic of family relationships for eating problems and how the person should have the ability to control on his own issues. Working on trauma is also necessary and will focus on the coping mechanisms a person has and also other issues. It is really important for his medical condition as well. MS is a disease that can be intensified with stress. Let me know if you have any question in this regard. I wish her a good health.

what about the association betwen eating disorders, or malnutrution and MS?
some DR. s feel that the malnutrision assocated with anorexia is not totaly a psychological disorder. Do you agree?

Hi there, thanks for asking. I also agree that malnutrition is a separate issue in eating disorder. Any stress could trigger MS, so it is not limited to malnutrition. It should be addressed with talk therapist if it is not critical at this point. Best wishes.
