Psychological Evaluation

Psychological assessment and counseling is a critical part of the weight loss journey. We recognize that obesity is a disease that reaches beyond weight alone. Your genetics, metabolism, environment, motivation, and emotions all play important roles in your success. Our counselor, Dan Shattuck, PhD., not only assesses your mental health, but also guides you through the psychological challenges of losing weight, addressing “food addiction,” overcoming self-destructive behavior, and learning how to adopt positive change with retooling your psychological tool box.
