Integrative Approaches for Weight Loss | Ryan Sheridan, NP

Treatments that go beyond the surface for
Weight Loss

Wait!  Before you read on, you'll notice weight loss has a strike through it.  There's a reason... The term "weight loss" implies we set a goal based on a number on the scale.  I don't think that's the best approach.  Instead, we'll work together to create a healthy, fit, balanced life physically and mentally. 

Integrative psychiatry for
weight loss means creating a healthy lifestyle through nutrition and fitness. 

We'll treat you as a whole-person, find solutions that work, and set you up for long-term success.

The Proactive Approach®

Holistic Interventions

Weight loss is best treated with a comprehensive and holistic plan that includes nutritional support, exercise planning, supplements, therapy, coaching, occasionally medication when appropriate, and more. You will be viewed as whole person, not as a number on the scale, calorie count, or statistic. 


& Biological Testing

How we process food, nutrients, and medication are significant pieces of the puzzle for weight loss. Taking into consideration the biological components is important in order to lose weight and keep it off.  By using supportive measures in tandem with healthy lifestyle changes we will foster long-term success. 

& Coaching Support

Achieving healthy physical wellness can be an emotional challenge.  Talk therapy and coaching are critical elements of treatment that provide support and help to manage stressors.  Through therapy and coaching, we will establish new routines, learn new behaviors, and build a healthy lifestyle.  You will never be alone on your weight loss journey. 


Simple Treatment Plans

Complex diet and exercise plans are overwhelming, hard to follow, and promote unhealthy weight cycling. We will select weight loss solutions that are tailored to you, methodically developed, and implemented in a healthy way. Evidence-based treatments can be simple, effective, and long lasting. Together we will devise realistic plans that promote a healthy, balanced life.
