If you've had weight-loss surgery, this group is for you! 

All post-operative bariatric surgical patients at different stages of their weight loss journey are welcome to attend this group monthly.

Since the inception of our program in 2004, Eating Disorder Specialist, Mary P. Ziller, L.C.S.W. has conducted this group to keep patients on track with the physical and emotional changes that occur after weight loss surgery. 

The purpose of this group is to help patients with their weight loss and eventual maintenance; and to achieve peace and emotional clarity regarding eating patterns and body image issues.  Mary's focus is to guide patients to identify and release psychosocial stressors that block them from feeling good about themselves and contribute to emotional eating and weight struggles.  
Positive methods for self-care are highlighted, and a series of individual skill-sets are reinforced at each support group.  

A few topics covered are: 
Managing the Medical and Technical Challenges of Bariatric Surgery
Differences between Physical and Emotional Hunger
Mindless and Intuitive Eating
Managing Stressful Events and more!
