Mindful Eating Group – This group is for both men and women. The goal is weight loss; clients choose and report on an eating plan, commit to daily exercise and learn ways to use meditation to decrease cortisol levels. This group often does food exercises to deal with cravings, etc. We also spend time understanding what feelings clients are avoiding by bingeing/overeating.
Women's Process and Support Group – Women support each other and look at their own style of managing relationships based on the way they interact with others in the group.
