We understand that having a weight problem is a heavy burden. Not only physically - the extra weight - but mentally too. The mental/emotional burden is partly due to the expectation that you “should” be doing something about it, which causes you to feel guilty, frustrated. or even hopeless.
We understand that you may have often felt mis-understood, by your family, friends, doctors, society at large. You may have felt judged, criticized, ignored, and underestimated. And even though there are many, many people with weight problems, you may have felt alone in dealing with yours.
We are not here to judge you, to diagnose you, or to tell you what to do. First and foremost, we are here to understand, and then, with you, to find a way to move forward.
We are determined to find a solution that feels right to you. We will consider all the options and help you choose which one is best.
We understand that you want to lighten the burden of your weight problem. Part of that is to make peace with yourself. That means liking yourself NOW, even while you work to achieve your best possible physical and mental health and wellness.
Our mission is to help people achieve long-term weight control and the health and well-being that comes with it. Whatever your age, history, degree of weight problem, medical condition, current life situation, personal goals, and financial resources, we are committed to help.
