A few months ago I almost choked on a pill. I didn't but it stuck in my throat and took a lot of water to get it down. For the past 4 years I have had anxiety and panic attacks and take Lorazapam when needed. Until a couple of months ago. My mother passed away on Nov 4th and my sister and took care of her since July living here in the house with us. She started going down hill and all my fears had started to come to life. I watched my mother go all the way down until the day I was holding her hand and she passed away. Since then I have been going down hill. Since the pill incident I was not able to eat in public then not able to eat solid foods at all. I always felt like something would stick every time I would swallow. Knowing it is fear and anxiety and depression that is stopping me from eating. I have lost about 15lbs now and am more than ready to get over this. I see a psychiatrist once a month and a therapist twice a week. I take lorazapam 3 times a day and read self help books. Every night I go to sleep saying I am happy, I am healthy, I am okay and every morning when I wake up I say the same thing.. And everyday this crap is still here. I want to stay in bed all day but yet I want to get up get ready and go shopping and everytime I stand up something stops me. I want this gone. I miss me. I miss the outgoing crazy fun loving person I was. I am on a 30 day leave of absence from work and just pray that this will get better.

Seeking an alternative to traditional therapy? That’s why I’m here. My tools range from innovative new mind-body modalities (e.g., Energy Psychology) to the most ancient spiritual/energetic modality (shamanic healing). These tools enable me to help clients address most of the problems that licensed mental health professionals do – plus some they can’t. And usually do it more efficiently. This is the main reason I almost always have one or more licensed therapists as clients. See the testimonials on my website.
I provide professional, results-oriented counseling with a focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Hypnosis, methods that more quickly and effectively brings about positive changes. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I also work extensively with couples and family members on relationship issues.
I appreciate that it can be challenging to find a therapist. I encourage you to shop around, read profiles, visit websites, and have initial sessions with a couple of providers to find someone who you can really talk to and be open with. We all have different styles and vibes and ways of talking and that's a good thing, hopefully we're all well trained as well but I encourage you to inquire if our training and credentials are confusing or not obvious. In therapy I will be someone who challenges you. I might interrupt you at times if your thinking seems off. I will encourage you to feel and exercise and be honest with yourself and the people you love. Therapy will be challenging. Hopefully you will be thoughtful about the process and interested in making changes. I'm here to help you become the person who you want to be and love the person who you are.
