Obesity is linked with mental health. People who are affected by obesity may be experiencing depression, anxiety, eating disorder. But it is very hard to find out who came first – obesity or mental health. Psychotherapy help pays a major role in treating obesity.

Los Angeles, California therapist: Philip Starkman, registered psychotherapist

Philip Starkman

Registered Psychotherapist, MSW, RSW
In my approach to supporting clients dealing with obesity, I blend a compassionate understanding of the emotional and psychological dimensions of weight with practical strategies for change. By integrating holistic methods such as Mindfulness, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Role-Playing, I create a personalized plan that addresses both the mind and body. This tailored approach helps clients uncover underlying emotional triggers, improve self-esteem, and develop healthier coping mechanisms. Through our work together, we explore lifestyle changes that support physical health, while also addressing the psychological factors that contribute to obesity. My goal is to empower clients to make sustainable changes, fostering a positive relationship with food and exercise, and ultimately, achieving a balanced and healthy life. For individuals seeking support in their journey toward weight management and overall wellness, I am committed to providing a nurturing and supportive environment to explore, grow, and succeed.

Often linked to anxiety and mood disorders, it’s difficult to determine whether obesity is the cause or the effect. Regardless, obesity can impact not only one’s physical health, but can be detrimental to one’s social life and self-esteem. Through inner-child work we will work inside out by first evoking self-compassion, then comes connection to the body (with the mind and soul). Through connection, we will learn to make changes by knowing what changes need to be made or how to accept and love our body for how it is. And just like that, sometimes acceptance is the biggest change of all.

I lost 100lbs and currently kept it off for eight years (I started August 15, 2012). I remember at my heaviest weight, I wanted to talk to someone who had been there, done that & understood I so badly wanted to change and my frustration at not changing. I wanted someone who could quiet my mind when it worried about my weight and help me gain control of my body and life. I know what it's like to start losing weight, only to abandon the effort shortly thereafter. If you repeat that pattern and put your health and quality of life at risk, then you likely feel that there are issues that need to be addressed psychologically - I can help! I find people struggling with obesity to keep saying "how will this time be different", or "I am sick and tired of being sick and tired" or "Why am I deliberately ruining my health." Those struggling with obesity have these thoughts going through their head constantly, and even obsessively. My goal in therapy is to use my own experience of successful weight loss, the latest medical theories of obesity and a good solid approach to therapy to address these issues.

Having been morbidly obese myself and losing 150 lbs in 2006/07 after having Gastric Bypass Weight loss Surgery - but keeping it up until now (2024) is a major achievement.
