Do you battle your weight, have tried everything, but just can’t seem to lose? Weight loss counseling may be just what you need. Weight loss counseling is unique in that it adds an element that is often neglected in traditional weight loss programs. Weight loss counseling includes basic nutritional counseling in addition to mental health counseling. Mental health issues: stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, and other mental illness often underlie binge eating and emotional overeating.
At Family Solutions Counseling, an integrated approach will be taken to focus on the underlying emotions, changing thought patterns, and creating new behaviors for sustainable and healthy weight loss.
We work closely with other professionals and specialists in many cases to help our clients achieve the best results. We are fortunate to have a licensed therapist (Rebel Buersmeyer, LMFT, CEDS Candidate) specializing in eating disorders and weight loss issues, as well as a registered and licensed dietitian (Brittany Hunter, RD/LD) on site at FSC.
Below are some of the services Ms. Hunter offers that may be useful for you on your journey in developing a newer and healthier lifestyle.

Do you have some kind of medical problem that would benefit from an altered diet? Do you have an intense fear of weight gain, and avoid specific foods or calories in order to manage your weight? Do you feel like you lose control with food? Do you have questions about how to feed your child(ren) or picky eater? You may benefit from working with Ms. Hunter, who is equipped in meal planning and counseling for your individual needs.
