9 Years Experience
Hypnotherapist, Hypnotherapist certified by International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association
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!

53 Years Experience
I've worked within bariatric surgery and outpatient mental health clinics which focus on preparation for weight loss surgeries as well as management of contributing factors including emotional eating and maladaptive coping. I ascribe to an approach which highlights addressing less adaptive food beliefs and healing one's relationship with their body, with food, and their experience of others.
