Bariatric Therapy & Counseling in Indianapolis

PRE/POST OP BARIATRIC PSYCHOTHERAPY

Psychological and emotional concerns are common amongst patients who are considering weight loss surgery or who have already had a bariatric procedure such as the Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass, and Banding. These procedures are tools - powerful tools - for weight loss and improving one's health, but the emotional aspects that have contributed to weight gain are often still present. Additionally, as one successfully loses weight and changes their eating habits and relationship with food, underlying mental health symptoms can emerge. As a psychotherapist who specializes in working with patients who are considering undergoing weight loss surgery or who have gone through a bariatric procedure, I have found in order for patients to be successful long-term, it is crucial they explore, understand, and resolve the psychological and emotional aspects related to their obesity. 

Whether you are considering bariatric surgery or have undergone a procedure, I am dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and ensure long-term success. Together, we can ensure you are fully prepared to succeed.
