Weight Management

There are so many options in the world of weight loss today. In the past, people used to think that it was all about diet and exercise. The Westmed Weight Management Team knows that there is much more involved - that’s why we take a completely different approach.

Westmed Behavioral Health provides fully-integrated care as part of your overall weight management program. We provide bariatric surgery evaluations and psychiatric evaluations for any associated mental illness including eating disorders. In conjunction with your physician, we can provide psychiatric medications and individual psychotherapy to help you manage your weight loss conditions.

We offer an eight-week psychotherapy group for people struggling with emotional eating, depression and weight management issues. This group utilizes a cognitive behavioral approach (CBT) and participants will learn alternative approaches, such as mindfulness exercises and practical tips to attain a healthy balanced lifestyle. It will also help people with diabetes and heart disease who need to lose weight for optimal health.
