Obesity counseling and support provide a compassionate and personalized approach to managing and understanding obesity, a complex health condition influenced by genetic, behavioral, environmental, and psychological factors. It goes beyond food and exercise to explore the emotional and cognitive underpinnings of weight issues. We create a nonjudgmental environment that empowers clients to tackle obesity's challenges, set attainable health goals, and improve their overall quality of life. Comprehensive Management for Obesity * Holistic Approach: We consider all facets of an individual's life in our treatment plan, recognizing that physical, emotional, and environmental factors all play a role in managing weight. * Behavior Modification Strategies: Through evidence-based interventions, we encourage the development of healthier eating patterns, physical activity habits, and coping skills for emotional eating. * Emotional Support: We provide emotional support, helping clients address body image issues, self-esteem, and any stigmatization they may have experienced due to their weight. * Collaboration with Healthcare Providers: When needed, we work in tandem with dietitians, doctors, and fitness experts to create a multi-disciplinary plan for optimal health. * Sustainable Lifestyle Changes: We focus on long-term, sustainable modifications to lifestyle that promote weight loss and maintenance, as well as overall well-being. Goals of Obesity Counseling and Support Our obesity counseling and support services aim to: * Build a Positive Self-Image: Help clients develop a more positive and compassionate body image, which can be a powerful motivator for change. * Enhance Self-Regulation: Teach skills to manage cravings, emotional eating, and stress, which are often linked to weight gain and obesity. * Increase Knowledge: Provide education about nutrition, the science of weight loss, and the effects of obesity on health. * Support Personal Empowerment: Empower individuals to take control of their health decisions and develop the confidence to implement and stick to health-promoting behaviors. * Create a Supportive Community: Offer group programs and support networks that foster camaraderie and shared experiences, helping individuals to feel less isolated in their journey. Obesity counseling is a nuanced process that caters to the individual needs and experiences of each client. With a respectful and understanding approach, we aim to guide individuals towards achieving and maintaining a healthier weight, enhancing their overall health and happiness.

I use the Virtual Gastric Band model to enable you to change your mindset and eating habits over about a month's time, then continue to work with and check-in with you over increasingly longer intervals until you get to where you want to be. I have helped clients lose up to 200 pounds, or as little as that stubborn last 15 that they had been unable to lose. No diets and you won't feel a sense of deprivation; no "good days" or "bad days," just creating new, sensible eating habits, enjoying your food, exercising, drinking plenty of fluids, and losing 1 or 2 pounds a week for as long as it takes (200 pounds takes between 2 and 4 years). My program is very successful and clients are surprised and pleased with themselves!
