Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Currently, my practice focuses entirely on individuals who deal with eating/food/weight issues. I have an extensive background working in this arena, including running support groups for the graduates of Kaiser Permanente’s weight loss program in Santa Clara. I run support groups in downtown San Diego and La Mesa (East County), where I work with people who struggle with losing &/or keeping weight off. The focus of these groups is support, education and problem solving that leads to alteration in behavior and attitude. People realize their power; gain feelings of higher self esteem/self worth and learn to take actions and responsibility, which leads to long lasting change.
