As you can see by my resume — you will find it here — I have spent the last 40 years in the business of helping people resolve those issues in their lives that had limited them in some way. I have worked with people of all ages in all kinds of mental health and drug/alcohol facilities and situations.
After graduating from the Columbia University Social Work program, I completed a number of post-graduate programs to assist me in helping others, as well as myself, resolve their issues. I have been trained and/or certified in some of the most progressive and effective therapies that exist today, some of them being so cutting-edge and new that most people don’t know about them, Brainspotting being the most profound of these new therapies.
My journey to heal myself and others has opened many doors to find incredibly effective and relatively easy and quick ways to release one’s anxiety, stress, worry, depression, excess anger, sadness, guilt, shame, and, even, physical pain, etc., FOREVER, with Brainspotting being the frontrunner of these new therapies in relation to the depth of traumatic material released and the relative ease while doing so. I know that these methods work because I’ve used them on myself. I used to be a “rageaholic”, and suffered from high anxiety and bouts of depression in my earlier adulthood. I was in talk therapy for 10 of 15 years at that time of my life and I walked out of those 10 years of talk therapy with as much rage and anxiety as I had when I walked in. Why? Because you don’t let go of your rage and intense anxiety in traditional talk therapy. You learn how to “manage” them, relieve the symptoms perhaps, with drugs, and/or talk about these issues over and over and over again, without getting to or releasing the “roots” of that trauma in talk therapy. All of these conditions are caused by trauma that gets “frozen” in our neurobiology. All of the methods I utilize (especially Brainspotting) “unfreeze” and let go of this trauma, thus allowing our true pure essence to shine once again.
I don’t use any methodology of treatment with my clients unless it gives me a personal “wow” in my work on myself. And, I must say the one methodology that gives me the most “WOW” is Brainspotting. The discovery of Brainspotting by Dr. David Grand is incredibly miraculous in itself and I will be eternally grateful to Dr. Grand for discovering it. And, when combined with the methods that Lisa Schwarz has developed in relation to dissociation and attachment, I am very confident that there is no issue which cannot be let go of FOREVER, relatively quickly, easily and very efficiently. And, I can help you do just that.
