What Is Disordered Eating?
Disordered eating, also called an eating disorder, is a condition that causes an individual to approach food negatively. This can impact both your physical and mental wellness. It's important and perfectly normal to give focus to your diet; however, some people become so fixated on their weight that they start to limit food intake, throw up their food after eating, and develop other dangerous habits. At Good Day Psychiatry, we work diligently to help our patients manage their weight in a healthy manner, develop healthy eating habits, and more. We want you to be able to have a healthy relationship with food, your body, and your mental health. If you are struggling with an eating disorder in Hobbs, NM, Odessa, TX, or a surrounding area, contact Dr. Jessica Spiegelberg in Lubbock, TX to set up a consultation.
How Are Eating Disorders Treated?
There are a variety of eating disorders. Each of them has different symptoms. While it's most common for disordered eating to develop in younger years, a person can develop an eating disorder at any stage of life. Some of the common forms of disordered eating include:
- Anorexia (anorexia nervosa): Anorexia is characterized by a fear of weight gain or body dysmorphia (consistently worrying about flaws and body image).
- Bulimia: Individuals with bulimia will binge eat (overeat), then purge the food they just consumed.
- Binge eating disorder: Those with binge eating disorder will overeat and then feel ashamed about their eating habits.
- Orthorexia: This form of anorexia refers to an unhealthy obsession with nutrition so much so that the individual will become fixated on "healthy" eating to the point they experience stress and physical issues.
Disordered eating can develop as a result of emotional issues or life events. Therefore, our Lubbock, TX psychiatric team will work with you to identify the cause of your disordered eating so we can treat your specific problem. Treatments for an eating disorder can include nutrition guidance, counseling, and more.

Absolutely adore Jessica- she is warm, inviting, and a genuinely caring provider. Even when I leave Lubbock, I will continue to see Jessica since I know I won't find anyone better!
I am the executive director of a substance abuse treatment center. I want to say that Jessica is simply amazing! We have referred multiple people to her at Good Day Psychiatry and been extremely impressed. She has been so attentive and taken great care of each one of them. Her professionalism, customer service, and expertise in psychiatry is a blessing to the Lubbock area. Thanks you!!!!
Highly recommend, Jessica. She is a compassionate human being who truly cares about the well-being of others.
I have had the pleasure of having a collegial relationship with Dr. Spiegelberg, NP for several years. I am a psychologist, and I met Dr. Spiegelberg, NP when she previously worked as a psychiatric provider at TTU Student Health Services. In our clinic, Dr. Spiegelberg, NP had the reputation of being highly skilled, responsible, and a pure joy to work with. Although I no longer share the same clinical space with her, I am happy to collaborate to this day with shared patients. I have been consistently impressed with the dedication and care she puts into her clinical work. She cuts no corners; she puts in her all. I recommend Dr. Spiegelberg, NP as a psychiatric provider with no reservations for her expertise, conscientiousness, and compassionate attitude towards patients.
Jessica Speigelberg is an excellent provider that helps make navigating mental health services easy to understand. She also listens to patients to guide and direct care with patient input as her priority. After years of various providers I have been most pleased with Spiegelberg and highly recommended her for mental health services.
