Individual Counseling for Weight Loss

Battling with weight loss can be a very difficult—and a personal-struggle. That's why we offer an alternative for those who have an immediate need for weight counseling assistance, but may not want to attend a group class. One-on-one counseling services at our Nutrition Center will put you in touch with a Registered Dietitian (RD) who can work with you individually to develop a nutrition plan that fits your goals and lifestyle.
