Clients must be mentally prepared before undergoing their weight loss or bariatric surgery. In a psychological assessment, a licensed mental health counselor identifies major emotional barriers that could create challenges after the surgery.
As licensed mental health counselor in South Florida, I conduct pre-surgical bariatric evaluations in both English and Spanish. The evaluation will be conducted in two 50 minute sessions. The first session will be obtaining your background information. You will receive the questionnaires for you to complete and return to me before the second session. During the second session we will review your answers and discuss any questions you may have. You will receive the written report within 10-14 days after the second session.
