often not mentally ill, experienced significant levels of emotional distress and failed
to feel fully alive. Today, he assists clients with weight loss and preparation for
bariatric surgery, but emphasizes mental health and positive self-esteem at any size.
In addition to his specialty in bariatric psychology, he helps adults of all ages with mind-body health, depression, stress, and life transitions.
