Tina Musselman LPC, RD, CCN Tina Musselman is a registered dietitian, clinical nutritionist, and counselor with 14-years of experience helping individuals who have had bariatric surgery. In addition to working with individuals in weight loss programs, she has also been a consultant for Lap Band, Obalon, and presented at the international Obesity Week conference.  

Tina views each person in their entirety and takes into account medical, social, emotional, relationship, and nutritional influences.  Tina will tap into her years of experience to help you achieve long-term results, re-jump start weight loss, or put together an accountability plan to help you reach your goals. You don't have to do this alone. It didn't work before surgery, and won't work after.

Tina believes that obesity is a life-long chronic disease. Even with weight loss programs such as surgery, it can only be put into remission, never cured.  The condition is multifactorial. Everybody knows what to do, but actually doing it is a different story.
