Our program offers support to both the surgical and the non-surgical client. Choosing whether or not to have surgery is a personal choice. We serve to get to the root of the issues with food and change it. For ultimate success, it’s necessary to make certain that your behaviors, habits, attitudes, family and other aspects of your life are all aligned in support of your efforts to lead a healthier life. We will give you the necessary tools to achieve that success.
The Bariatric Counseling Center offers a full range of nutritional, clinical, therapy and psychological counseling services. Our comprehensive program typically lasts 30 visits. Sessions are weekdays from 11am–2pm, 4pm–7:30pm or 5:30-8:30, and on Saturdays. They cover everything from nutrition and cooking to life coaching, family counseling, and relapse prevention.
Each night, dinner is prepared by our Executive Chef to show you how you can accommodate and embrace healthier substitutions, while still enjoying a satisfying, nutritious meal. During our day sessions, each week clients order takeout to learn and gain a sense of empowerment pertaining to ordering from a menu. The support clients draw from each other is also extremely powerful. They share a common struggle, and their bond and mutual understanding help foster a spirit of healing.
At the end of our program, you’ll have a better understanding of food, diet, health, obesity and ultimately yourself.
