Question: How do I find a therapist who knows how to help me lose weight?
Answer: It's important when you're trying to lose weight to find a therapist who truly specializes in weight management. It may or may not be an obesity expert who does eating disorders as well. The important part is that it's somebody who can really assist you in finding resources, like registered dietitians, other exercise physiologists and so forth. One great resource for finding such a person is the Association of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapy's website. They provide a listing where you can click on obesity as an issue and provided therapists who are skilled in that area.
