In brief: Referral

First, get a psychiatric evaluation for eating disorders and whatever else might be ailing you, because eating disorders are serious issues, not to be trifled with, and often they need medication to help with anxiety/depression.
Then get a referral to a reputable psychotherapist to help work through the emotional issues that food can bring on.
