Binge-eating disorder can be frightening, can leave you feeling hopeless, out of control or ashamed. But in this interview, best-selling author of I Can’t Stop Eating, Sarah Dosanjh, discusses her personal experience with binge-eating disorder – how she got trapped in the vicious cycle of bingeing and purging, and how she found her own pathway to recovery from binge-eating.
Sarah is a licensed psychotherapist and now specializes in treating eating disorders, overeating, and binge-eating. Her hopeful story, personal examples, and expertise all help her help others stop binge-eating.

In therapy I use a combination of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Systems Theory, positive psychology, and a bio-psycho-social approach to treating mental illness and other challenges we all face in life. The ideas from my videos are frequently adapted from multiple sources. Many of them come from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, especially the work of Steven Hayes, Jason Luoma, and Russ Harris. The sections on stress and the mind-body connection derive from the work of Stephen Porges (the Polyvagal theory), Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing) Francine Shapiro (EMDR), and Bessel Van Der Kolk. I also rely heavily on the work of the Arbinger institute for my overall understanding of our ability to choose our life’s direction.
And deeper than all of that, the Gospel of Jesus Christ orients my personal worldview and sense of security, peace, hope, and love https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/comeuntochrist/believe
