We offer both individual and group counseling to help you end your overeating. The first step is to set up a one-on-one consultation. We will learn about your history with food and weight, and explain/answer any questions you have about our approach. Together, we will decide if this approach is right for you.

If you are reading this web page, chances are you have spent many years struggling with eating and weight issues. You may have tried other programs in the past, and wonder what is different about this one.

At the Chicago Center for Overcoming Overeating, Inc. we look at your overeating in a holistic way. We help you to become in tune with your body and yourself as you work on issues such as:

  • Emotional overeating

  • Responding to physical hunger and fullness

  • Improving health

  • Finding your natural weight

  • Using attunement to support emotional and physical well-being

As more and more people understand that diets really don't work, they are turning to the non-diet approach to learn a lifelong way of creating a healthy relationship with food, their bodies and themselves.
