Blossom Buddies


Blossom Buddies is your ticket to immediate friendship and support.


For a limited time, we are offering free one-time one-on-one sessions for Blossom Bariatrics clients with our therapist Bobby Turner. Please call the office to sign up!

Along with enormous successes, a significant life change such as undergoing bariatric surgery can also bring about new challenges and adjustments. At Blossom Bariatrics, we are prepared to assist you throughout the transition.

Support Groups – Nobody quite understands what you are going through like others who are in the same boat. Under the direction of our certified therapists, Bobby Turner, a past bariatric client herself, we connect you with peers and leaders so you can support, coach, encourage, and lean on one another when you might need it most.

Support groups are an excellent resource where you’ll find people who share your goals of health and wellness. Bobby leads in-person support groups for those in the Las Vegas area while our Blossom Bariatrics leads online support groups to connect with our clients unable to attend in-person. We are devoted to people who have common experiences, who can share their feelings in a safe environment, and who develop relationships that can contribute to improved physical and emotional health. We’ve found that our most successful clients attend support groups regularly.

If you are thinking about weight loss surgery and you want to learn more about the client’s perspective or to help reluctant family and friends better understand the process, attending a support group meeting can be invaluable. Check below for the support group schedule and join us!

Individual Sessions – Our certified therapists are also available for one-on-one counseling sessions.

Again, Bobby Turner provides superior in-person service for those in the Las Vegas area and, for our traveling clients, we are thrilled that Krista Carpenter will be available via Skype, FaceTime, or by phone.

When I was a beginning therapist, professors and colleagues consistently warned me to put myself first–even before my work and my clients. I could not imagine that. I went into this field because I wanted to help others. Didn’t that mean that if someone...
