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 offer "been-there-done-that" weight loss empathy & strategy! I am current on weight loss science with close connections to weight loss physicians. More important- weight involves many psychological issues such as emotions, depression, anxiety, trauma, ADHD, bipolar, addictions & disordered eating. I gently connect those issues to your weight loss efforts.
All the empathy and therapy I offer helps you answer one key weight loss question: "How will this time be different and work long-term?" I return all communications in one day. With COVID, all sessions are phone/online. Evenings, weekends and rush appointments available, and my services are covered under private insurance!
