My Unique Approach to Weight Management

Weight loss is not achieved by starving yourself, having more willpower, or discovering a secret combination of foods.

Weight loss is a complex issue, and requires medical insight combined with theraputic support and coaching. If you have struggled with weight and the simplistic advice of just eating fewer calories, then you know. The first thing you need to know is it’s not your fault.

It’s not their fault either. The myths of weight loss are everywhere. Most professionals simply don’t know how complex weight issues are.

Specializing in obesity medicine, I bring a holistic understanding of all the factors that affect your weight and health. We face a web of physiological factors, genetics, environment, life events, brain chemistry, and others.

I help bring it all together to uncover the real factors affecting your weight, and how to deal with them. We deal with them together.

It’s not magic, and it’s not instant, but it sets you up for a lifetime of healthy living.

Medical Insight

There’s a lot more than excess calories contributing to weight gain. We look at the medical factors that may be contributing to your weight. Metabolic issues, genetics, etc.

With a more complete picture, we can address the medical factors that may have been unrecognized for years. Treating underlying problems can go a long way to getting you back on track.

Lifestyle Coaching

Going beyond the physical body, many other factors affect weight management and obesity. We look at environmental factors, life pressures, brain chemistry and the many other influences that may be sabotaging your efforts.

We work together to address the factors affecting your health in your day to day life. A wealth of experience allows me to shine a light on the hidden causes and help you find solutions.

We discover ways to build the right lifestyle for your unique life.

Empowering Relationship

I treat every patient with warmth and empowerment. Many come to me struggling with shame and feeling misunderstood after years of trying to will their way to losing weight.

It’s not about willpower. It’s not about starving yourself. And it’s not your fault.

I am here to dive in and help you discover what works for your unique body and your unique life. We face the struggles and successes together. I witness patient after patient discovering self-compassion and confidence.
