Julie Jarzombek, Counselor

Julie Jarzombek, Counselor


Joining South Texas Surgeons Team in 2007, Julie Jarzombek has more direct experience working with bariatric patients than any nutritionist in San Antonio. In 2012, Julie received her Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling from St. Mary’s University and added Licensed Professional Counselor to her tool belt. She has since transitioned to the role of counselor, providing patients with a 360 degree approach to weight loss by incorporating behavioral modification. Julie’s expertise has been instrumental in training nutritionists and staff from bariatric programs across the country.

Julie works closely with patients both pre and post operatively—from preparing for the significant lifestyle changes that are necessary for successful weight loss surgery to managing life after and redefining a new and healthy relationship with food. Through regular sessions, she incorporates behavior modification, including education on the components of a healthy diet and development of healthy behavioral habits for eating.

Outside of individual visits, Julie champions monthly support group meetings, as well as our 24-hour online support group. Her credentials include:

  • St. Mary’s University, MA: Mental Health Counseling
