SuperMommyNot.com is producing a year long series in which we will focus on the issue of childhood obesity. Dr. Stacy Wadlington, a licensed clinical psychologist, will be guiding a mother and her daughter through therapy in an effort to help them make healthier choices. We have been invited to sit in on their therapy sessions and learn from the work this family is committed to.
In session three, Felicia (the mother) and Simone (the daughter) sit down with Dr. Wadlington to discuss how a lack of discipline in everyday life was detrimental to Simone’s well-being and feelings about food and nutrition.
Dr. Wadlington is in private practice in Beverly Hills and Pasadena California. She has worked extensively with children, adolescents and adults for over sixteen years providing clinical services in the form of individual, family, couple and group therapy. Dr. Wadlington’s assessment experience includes conducting psychological and forensic evaluations to a wide variety of patient populations, including candidates for Cosmetic and Bariatric Surgery.
