As stated by the American Society for Bariatric Surgery (2004), behavioral health specialists can no more predict a particular psychological outcome for a surgery than the physician can a surgical or medical complication. We can, however, identify psychosocial strengths and risk factors.  Our aim is not just to give a yes/no opinion for the appropriateness of the procedure (which we do provide), but also provide recommendations to both the client and surgical group aimed at accomplishing the best possible surgical and psychological outcome. 


We hope to be more than a check in your pre-surgical box.  We want to prove ourselves as a valuable part of your team.
