Healthy Lifestyle Weight Loss

Therapy can play a key role in helping you lose weight.  Some people who have tried and failed at numerous weight loss plans report that therapy was the best option for them.  In my practice, I have seen the successful weight losses with many of my clients.  I offer my clients a comprehensive five step approach to weight loss.  First, we work on body image.  Research shows body image issues are on the rise and contribute to eating disorders. Second, we work at identifying triggers for binge eating that cause stress, quilt and negative thoughts.  Third, we identify those barriers that prevent you from living a healthy lifestyle.  We work at breaking down resistance, managing time and setting priorities.   Fourth, I offer support and accountability.  No matter how determined you are, it's not easy to lose weight. It requires near-constant motivation, and even a few slip-ups can significantly undermine your goals. Therapy offers you the support you need to tackle this challenge by:
  • Helping you develop coping mechanisms for dealing with temptation.·        
  • Offering you advice on how to deal with people who make negative comments about your body.·        
  • Helping you replace negative self-talk with more positive messages to yourself.·        
  • Aiding you in identifying the specific psychological challenges that cause you to make unhealthy life style choices. You might, for example, overeat because you're bored, lonely, or depressed.
  • Assist you in identifying clear, reasonable goals. It might not be feasible for you to weigh 100 pounds or to look the way you did when you were 20. Your therapist can help you determine what's physically and psychologically healthy for where you are right now.
Finally, the fifth step is a healthy life style group support.  I have been wanting to add a group support component for my weight loss client.  Research has repeatedly shown that help doesn't only come from experts. Leaning on peers who have faced challenges similar to your own offers you the chance to gain from these peers' wisdom, learn from their successes, and avoid repeating their mistakes. Many therapists offer group therapy or referrals to support groups, so don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to learn from your peers. 

My healthy life style group begins on September 9.  The group size is limited to 12 and will meet weekly.  The program I use does not come with a meal plan, however, it does come with a complete workable plan for overall success.  You receive a daily guide to help you stay motivated and develop your own eating plan.  I also recommend every client have a complete physical.  I will work hand and hand with your physician to help you with any diet restrictions or medical issues. 

Our company is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.

We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.
