Individual Behavioral Weight Loss Treatment

Individual weight loss treatment involves meeting with one of our weight loss specialists for a 60-minute therapy session once per week. At your first appointment, your therapist will fully assess your concerns and recommend treatment options that are best suited to meet your recovery goals.

In individual treatment, you will learn new ways of thinking about nutrition and balance to allow for permanent positive changes in eating and physical activity behaviors. Individual treatment is the best option for those who would benefit from regular and ongoing accountability and structure while processing the individual and emotional components impacting your lifestyle changes and goals.

Individual Acceptance-Based Behavior Treatment for Weight Loss and Weight Loss Maintenance

As mentioned above, individual weight loss treatment involves meeting with one of our weight loss specialists for a 60 minute therapy session once per week. This treatment approach blends modern behavioral interventions and Eastern mindfulness techniques. You will learn cognitive, behavioral, and nutritional skills. The fundamental foundation of this treatment option is a focus on becoming aware and accepting of internal experiences while identifying your core motivating values for healthy lifestyle changes.

Group Behavioral Weight Loss Treatment

This 10-week group follows gold standard treatment recommendations. The group format is proven to be one of the most effective strategies for losing weight and keeping it off. Group members will learn skills for changing their eating behavior, increasing their physical activity, and maintaining their losses in the long term. As a current special, we are offering this group treatment option at a competitive rate with discounts available. This treatment option is a great fit for those who would benefit from the presence of support from others who can understand your unique challenges and those who have time constraints that make a long-term treatment commitment difficult to manage.
