In brief: Eating
Yes - check the phonebook or internet for local specialists )phychologists, psychiatrists) that have expertise in this area.
Really though you should also tell your primary care doctor. Eating disorders affect your entire body. Your doctor can not do his/her job well without your trust and full disclosure. Doctors keep your information private.
