About Stephen Almada

I am a health psychologist and have been consulting since 1986. I began consulting services while completing my post-doctoral fellowship in Preventive Medicine at the Northwestern University Medical School.  I’ve developed the Mindfulness Eating Training Program and the Stronger Than Stress Training Program and use these programs with individuals from a variety of professional backgrounds, families, and athletes.
