Welcome to Weighty Issues

As you may know, we live in a culture which promotes a love/hate relationship with food, with our bodies and ultimately with ourselves. Therefore, we are left feeling out of control with our eating and with our lives. Joyce Sarat White, licensed professional counselor and founder of Weighty Issues, helps clients explore information, challenge beliefs and encourages the reframing of one's relationship to food, to their bodies and to themselves.

The First Step

It is not easy to take the first step; to pick up the phone and to call and to ask for help. Often times, my clients tell me that they have been thinking about doing so for months, even years.

Then one day something happens-something that says to them, "I cannot continue the way I am thinking, feeling and behaving any longer. I need help with this food and weight issue."

Because I admire my clients' courage in acting on their own behalf, I do my best to schedule new clients as soon as possible. When they arrive at the first session, I invite them into my office. My office is a comfortable room-nurturing, warm and relaxing. Hopefully, it reflects what I try to provide for them-a calm, compassionate, nonanxious presence.

Are you ready to take the first step? If you are, please call(207 846-9053) because I am ready to walk with you down this long winding road.
