I’m a family doctor turned trauma therapist recovering from a chronic illness because of what I learned from the science of how adverse life events and trauma affect risk for chronic illness (and why it’s not psychological).
Hoping to inform, provide pain management tools, and inspire others by sharing what I have learned from my journey with pain 20 plus years. I experience adhesive arachnoiditis, and back and neck pain from 3 failed surgeries and complications, among other diagnoses.
