While I can talk science with anyone as a result my thirty years of training in medicine, neuroscience and developmental psychology, many of the breakthroughs in my own anxiety have come from pursuing distinctly non-scientific sources. Much of what has helped my anxiety and the anxiety of my patients the most has been atypical and counterintuitive, having very little to do with allopathic medicine. To name only a few of my distinctly “non doctor” sources, I have studied and lived in a temple in India, taken LSD, MDMA, Psilocybin, and Ayahuasca (in safe and supervised environments), practiced Holotropic breathwork and become a yoga and meditation teacher.
I have been very fortunate in that I am both anxiety doctor and anxiety patient and have had the knowledge and resources to investigate my own emotional pain from an incredible array of sources. As my own profession had been unable to really help me, I became a physician driven to heal myself through alternative means. In my travels to far away places to try far out things, I didn’t have to go back and check in with my doctor, I WAS the damn doctor. I had to heal myself, and I can help you heal, too.
I do not want you to suffer in the fearful hole I was in for decades! I have devoted my career to helping others get out of that hole I was in for a very long time. This is not a business for me as much as it is a passionate life’s work. It’s been an incredible journey and I’m confident I can save you years of frustration. You don’t have to be tied to therapy and medication forever.
