Behavioral Health & Medical Weight Loss

As an accredited center for weight loss, we strive to provide our patients with comprehensive support and services throughout their entire weight loss journey. All patients who participate in medical weight loss services at Iowa Weight Loss Specialists have access to mental health services within the clinic. Weight loss counseling can be requested by the patient at any time during the medical weight loss program, or, patients may be referred by a medical weight loss provider.

By combining medical treatments for weight loss and mental health support, the chances for effective and long-lasting weight loss are dramatically increased. Our behavioral therapists are there to ensure the best outcomes for each medical weight management patient at every stage in their weight loss journey. 

Weight Loss Therapy Services: What To Expect

As part of our approach to comprehensive care, your medical weight loss provider may make a referral for mental health care. The medical weight loss provider and licensed mental health clinician work together to create and implement unique weight loss plans that best suit each patient's unique needs and promote optimal patient outcomes.

Common areas covered in therapy for weight loss include:

  • Resolving emotional barriers to weight loss and weight management
  • Establishing healthy eating habits 
  • Establishing healthy patterns of eating
  • Increasing motivation to make lifestyle changes that help patients keep weight off and live healthy lives
  • Developing strategies to increase accountability
