Is There Something Else Besides Anti-Depressants If I’m Depressed?


Hell, yes. Anti-depressants have been over-prescribed for years. Kelly Brogan, MD wrote in “What’s the Harm in Taking an Antidepressant?” that, “Having always represented antidepressants as safe and effective to my patients, I put down my prescription pad after learning 3 facts about psychiatric medications: 1.

The Myth of “You Can Be Anything”

energy psychotherapy

There is a dearly held belief in our culture about the possibility of being anything in this lifetime.

For those who have never seen a psychotherapist or counselor, or don’t know what to expect from someone who does “energy psychotherapy” (whatever that is…!) the prospect of starting can feel intimidating. Here’s how it works in my practice. Our first contact is usually with an email, where you let me know that you’re interested, […]
