Kellee Waters is a registered psychologist, personal trainer, and hypnotherapist with a unique emotional connection to weight issues.  Kellee has herself fought various forms of eating disorders and now understands that weight loss and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is not just about telling patients what and how much to eat. Kellee explains, “I take a bio-psycho-social approach to all issues.

A political stalemate will follow. How will this stalemate be resolved? The resolution is silent on the subject.”
