Psychology for Weight Management

Lifestyle choices and habits are influenced by emotional factors in our daily lives. As part of the weight management program you can schedule individual visits with our licensed psychologist, Joanne Perilstein, PhD. Dr. Perilstein is experienced in blending nutrition, psychology, and cognitive behavioral therapy. She will help you address the emotions that trigger and form dietary and exercise habits to help you build healthy relationships with food. In addition, she will teach you the skills to eliminate negativity and stress that could be contributing to your weight.
