About Dr. Gary (Dr. I WannaWanna®)


Hello again, my name is Dr. Gary Grossman. I am a Personal Development and Wellness Coach specializing in Weight Loss MINDSETand Behavior Change.

I help people who Got Fat! …LOSE Fat! …and keep it off for the rest of their lives!

I received my Ph.D. in clinical psychology in 1976.

I am clear, direct and to the point. I empathize without enabling.

I began my professional career in 1971 working with addicts on the streets of New York City. I quickly became known as the 90 Day Wonder. At first, my clients mocked me, believing that I had no right to pretend that I knew the “Truths” of their lives or their circumstances.

Thankfully I was smart enough to agree with them. They were right. I didn’t know their truths or their circumstances and what I learned in college didn’t teach me this either.

I, however, knew that they KNEW their truths and if I would show them the honor and respect that they were worthy of, I could help them, if and once they trusted me.

Thankfully, they did. After a while, I earned the title of 90 Day Wonder as a sign of true respect. They knew: I knew!

They got help and I made a career decision to respect the fundamental differences in people. I learned that I could help people succeed only with their permission by leveraging our fundamental similarities, not blaming our differences.

I have lived a life that includes highlights and failure, burnout and recovery. No perfection here.

I understand the process of weight loss and weight gain. I know how to help!

I have over 50,000 hours of “in chair” experience helping people like you SUCCEED!

While burned out, I gained 47 unhealthy, unsightly, and unwanted pounds. It took me several years to put on that weight and several years to lose it. I am grateful that I did and I have kept it off since.

My goal is to help you lose weight by teaching you the MINDSET and Behaviors necessary to help you build the Dr. I WannaWanna® Fat Fight Plan, a life plan that you can self monitor effectively and proudly for the rest of your life.

I can only help you if you are willing to help yourself and only if you follow your doctor’s orders and my recommendations.

In addition to MINDSET and Behavior Change health and weight issues, I also specialize in helping clients with Personal/Professional Development, Relationship, Communications Skills, and Life Balance issues, including but not limited to: procastinators, clutterers, workaholics, perfectionists and burnouts.

Do you or someone you know need recommendations and/or support, NOT therapy?  Are you/they smart and “normal,” willing and able, but STUCK? Are you/they ready for change?

To find out more about how I can help you, a family member, colleague or friend who is struggling with life issues that are keeping them from operating at their best, please visit my primary website at http://www.garysgrossmanphd.com.

Thank you again for your time and considerastion.

affectionately known as
Dr. I WannaWanna®
