If you’ve struggled to lose weight, I encourage you to come to Mettā™, and come with a different mindset. Having obesity is not a personal failing. Regaining weight or being unable to lose weight is not a personal failing. Obesity is a disease, and it requires lifelong treatment. It helps to have a team of skilled, empathetic health care providers who will be your partners and help you develop your own care plan.

I understand how challenging obesity is, not only as a clinical physician, educator, and advocate, but as a patient. I’m passionate about helping people with obesity because I have struggled, too. I get all of the challenges, barriers, health risks, lifestyle concerns, family roles, and how hard it is to prioritize self-care when you also have a busy personal and professional life.

After years of personal struggles and helping patients, I’ve learned that those who keep some or most of their weight off manage to develop a new mindset. This has helped me personally in living a balanced life and managing the journey of weight maintenance. It’s now my mission to help people focus on health and happiness, along with beliefs and values that support overall well being.

It would be my pleasure to help you.
