Counseling and Weight Loss Coaching


As a Licensed Therapist and Certified Personal Trainer, I specialize in helping clients overcome the psychological and physical barriers to weight loss.

Weight Loss Coaching

Lose weight and transform your body with Denise's Weight Loss Coaching Programs.  Each weight loss program is tailored to meet your specific needs and weight loss goals.  This is NOT your typical online coaching program where you get a generic plan to follow with no support or follow up!   

On my program you will receive One-On-One coaching, which includes customized meal and exercise plans and a weekly accountability/check-in calls from me!  I will teach you how to EAT to lose weight (no starving yourself) and provide the support that you need to keep the weight off.

Professional Counseling

Does your weight interfere with your ability to feel good about yourself?  Do you feel stuck and overwhelmed by feelings of sadness or anxiety?  Have you tried diets, only to end up feeling like a failure?  Do you lose and regain weight over and over again? 

If you answered YES to any of these questions, it may be time to seek professional counseling. 

Left untreated, chronic emotional experiences like sadness and anxiety can have dramatic effects on every aspect or your life, including your health and ability to lose weight.  


What Service Do You Need?

Weight Loss Coaching - I recommend Weight Loss Coaching if you are clear about your weight loss goals and simply need a road map and solid support to help get there.  You are focused and mentally ready to take the daily steps necessary to reach your weight loss goals.  More About Weight Loss Coaching>>  

Professional Counseling - I strongly recommend Professional Counseling if you are experiencing one or more of the follow:  

  • You are constantly dieting without success
  • Your weight interferes with your mood, feelings, and relationships
  • You feel stuck and defeated
  • Your self-esteem is at an all time low
  • You binge and emotionally eat
  • You feel bad and have no idea how to help yourself feel better
  • You've worked unsuccessfully with coaches and personal trainers in the past

Counseling provides a safe, nonjudgmental space for you to explore and heal the root cause of your challenges with food and weight, so that you can move forward and successfully reach your goals.  Sometimes you have to get stronger and heal on the inside before you can make changes on the outside.  More About Professional Counseling>>
