Managing diabetes and weight is more than just physical. A rollercoaster of emotions are a part of diabetes itself, and the endless daily demands add frustration to your busy life. What's more is that many factors affect diabetes management: stress, untamed work-life balance, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, eating habits, sleep and eating disorders. Managing your mental health is as important as managing blood glucose and may be the missing link to optimal control. Are you overwhelmed, stressed, depressed with your health; can't seem to get on track; frustrated by lack of time and support from your health provider?
I understand the struggles and emotions unique to diabetes. Together we will organize your thoughts and emotions, develop skills and strategies, and create a customized plan that fits YOUR life. I primarily use online video sessions for convenient access from anywhere in North or South Carolina. In-person sessions available in the Myrtle Beach area.
If this describes you, my background as a clinical therapist, diabetes educator, and health coach is unique and fits your needs. I also do bariatric pre-surgical psychological assessments, as well as bariatric coaching. Don't let your weight or diabetes control you or define you. You deserve better health and inner fitness too, let's make it a reality.
