National trends among general practitioners revealed the fact that many patients are identifying symptoms of depression to their family doctor. Medication can certainly be the first step in treatment, but studies show that psychological or “talk therapy” treatment may have more long-term care benefits. CCMC Psychological Services are here to enhance and meet the comprehensive health needs of the St Johns community and CCMC patients.
Most insurance accepted by CCMC are also accepted by CCMC Psychological Services. Please refer to your individual policy for coverage information. If you need additional assistance, please don’t hesitate to call the friendly staff at (989) 292-3572.
We offer a meal replacement program that helps individuals with big weight loss goals start strong. Meal replacements are very low calorie and are most often combined with lean and green food choices. This program is not recommended without periodic medical oversight.
Your Mentor, Your Coach
We have mentors and coaches in every important area of our life—school, work, sports, skills. Why should weight loss be any different? Our professional Health Coaches are weight-loss mentors helping residents in St. Johns and greater Clinton County. Often, they have stood where you stand now, looking for a doable plan. They found it in Take Shape For Life and were so excited by the transformation it made in all areas that they became professional Health Coaches to help others lose weight and gain health.
A Health Coach does as much–or as little–as you need. He or she can cheer you on, motivate you, help you face challenges and show you the path to Optimal Health. Or your Health Coach can simply be a phone call away. You decide how much support you need.
Your Secret to Success
Research confirms that having a Health Coach can make all the difference in turning healthy behaviors into habits that last a lifetime. With the support of a weight-loss coach, your chances for success are vastly improved.
Lose weight safely and quickly with the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan®, featuring medically formulated, nutritious and delicious meal replacements by Medifast.
You’ll choose five Medifast Meals each day, one every 2-3 hours. Because you eat frequently, you’re never hungry, and your metabolism stays revved. Many Medifast Meals are portable, so you can fit this diet into even the busiest lifestyle.
You also get one Lean & Green Meal™ to eat at the time that works best for you. For the Lean, you’ll have 5-7 ounces of lean protein; the Green is three servings of low-glycemic vegetables. Depending on your source of protein, you’ll get
some healthy fat, too, and that will help keep you full and satisfied.
While Medifast Meals are delicious and nutritionally sound, don’t think that you’ll be committed to meal replacements forever. The 5 & 1 Plan is just the first phase of our program. In the Transition phase, you’ll begin to add more fruits, vegetables, and protein. And on Maintenance, you’ll learn how to eat the healthy food you love without gaining weight.
Our Transition plan is designed to gradually increase your calorie intake over time while re-introducing a wider variety of foods. How long you spend in this phase is determined by how many pounds you’ve lost.
Ultimately, you’ll increase your servings of lean proteins, whole grains, low-fat dairy, fruits, and vegetables until you reach a daily caloric intake of 1,550, adjusted for your own height, weight, age, sex, and activity level.
We take the guesswork out of Transition by providing you with a sample transition chart and sample meal plans.
Your ultimate goal is the BeSlim Lifestyle.
After you’ve completed Transition, you’re ready to move into Maintenance. You’ll monitor your weight and balance your calories. You’ll stay active and make smart choices.
You can order your free Take Shape For Life Maintenance Guide from your Health Coach when you’re ready. Optimal Health is yours!
