Hi, Welcome to my profile. By this time most of the profiles are sounding astonishing alike. Well maybe I can offer something a little different. I've been practicing for over 25 years and have developed an approach that gets to the core of your problem(s) which then gives us a chance to fully eliminate your symptoms. In addition to working with psychological issues [such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar, etc] I also have found a way to modify autoimmune disorders such as MS, Cancer, Lupus, High PSA, Heart conditions along with type I and II Diabetes to mention a few conditions. There are actually 84 autoimmune conditions. I, here, mentioned a few of the more well known conditions.
I train therapists in this method ergo I have therapists to refer you to should my time be unavailable.
I am particularly interested in watching physical conditions, like those mentioned above, start to abate. It takes time, and in this case as much time that is needed to get you healthy.

As mentioned above I have developed a style and method which can lead you out of your pain [be it anxiety, depression, social anxiety, poor career development, hopelessness, etc] and onto the road of health and happiness. I work at a deep Spiritual level thus providing guidance both from me and ultimately from the Spirit. I work well with all age groups however I seem to draw my patients mainly from the middle 20's up to the 50's.
In addition to removing psychological symptoms I can also treat some, if not all, of the autoimmune disorders like Lupus, Cancer, MS, High Blood Pressure, ED, Fibromyalgia. I can also potentially stop, and perhaps reverse the symptoms of Alzheimers, Parkensons, ADHD, Epilepsy and more.
I also train therapists and am aspiring to develop a training Institute. Very few therapists are aware of the importance of aggression and anger in the formation of symptoms. Anger is most probably the most 'feared' emotion so most people try to supress it or deny it or are explosive with it. Very few people are able to use their anger in a healthy and productive way. This is one of my specialties and for this reason I am working also with Law Enforcement, the military and trying to get competent therapy into the prisons and into the Homeless Shelters.
We currently have an epidemic of Family Dysfunction in this country. The majority of Police calls have to do with Domestic issues. This is resulting in trauma for the younger generations ergo our future as a country is in danger.
So, if you are part of a couple and there is fighting get in touch with me asap.
Drugs and alcohol destroy relationships while destroying the body. Impossible to have a healthy relationship if there is drugs or alcohol.
Much more to be said however I believe I've said enough to those of you who are interested in what I have said so far.
So, contact me.
