Some patients love to plan. It’s important for them to prepare and have a strategy when they are embarking on a project. If you are that type of person, you can get ready for your first visit with me in a few easy ways.

We all suffer. How we manage emotional turmoil, how we cope and where we struggle differs. These differences are fascinating.

They had concerns about their body, energy, appearance that were being written off as minor.
