It's not your fault. The reality of weight loss is complex. We know that obesity is a collision of brain chemistry, survival instincts, genetics, environmental factors, and more.
In my care you will benefit from a wealth of medical research and experience. You will also be guided along the journey step by step, facing the struggles and the successes together.
