As a bariatric surgery patient myself (Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, August 2009, 180+ pounds lost, physical and emotional health gained!) I became painfully aware of the lack of specialized services available to us. The emotional elements associated with this experience can be complicated; affecting all areas of your life, particularly relationships, social interaction and self image. In essence, weight loss surgery is a form of medically managed starvation and malnutrition.

 

After weight loss surgery, many patients are surprised by how much they previously relied on food as a way to cope. Research shows any mental health intervention improves long term patient success and satisfaction. I bring my own knowledge and my unique experience as a bariatric surgery patient, I understand the challenges and I can provide support to you to help create positive, long term outcomes.

 

Weight Loss/Bariatric Surgery Support Group

 

Join NOW, contact me for a registration interview!

 

There are very few support groups in the Greater Los Angeles area for Weight Loss/Bariatric surgery,  however, almost all bariatric surgeons recommend ongoing support, such as a support group, to help you achieve long term success. Meeting people who are going through the same lifestyle adjustments could be very helpful to your long term health. The group helps you identify new ways to cope without food. Additional, the groups also provide an excellent opportunity to talk about personal issues and gain support.
