When I tell people I am a Chiropractic Physician and a licensed psychotherapist I will often get a question about how I combine my services. One of the things I do is combine Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and Chiropractic. EMDR is a therapy used to help with conditions like PTSD, anxiety, depression, insomnia and more. It can often lead to a quicker resolution of problems than simple talk therapy.
Part of EMDR is identifying where you feel the problem manifesting in the body. In cases where a patient gets stuck in the reprocessing, I can do chiropractic adjustments in those areas of the body. I find this frees up the mind to continue with the reprocessing.
This is just one of the ways I combine services. Because of my education and training, I am able to combine things in ways that other health care practitioners cannot.

In November, I had the honor of teaching at the annual Sacro Occipital Research Society International (SORSI) homecoming seminar in Denver, Colorado. The topic was the cranial ranges of motion, which is part of the practice of Chiropractic Craniopathy. This is an advanced form of additional training in chiropractic. The cranial ranges of motion are something I use every day in my practice. In my experience, when you teach something you achieve a deeper level of understanding and mastery of the subject.
Motion in the bones of the head (cranium) occurs in both children and adults. Their motion is vital to health yet is often overlooked. Proper cranial bone motion relates to proper circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which brings nutrients into the brain and spinal cord and removes toxic material. CSF has now been found to interact with the immune system and the lymphatic system. Symptoms of this system not functioning properly are vast because the nervous system affects every organ and cell in the body.
My patients often tell me they feel amazing when I correct imbalances in the cranium. Even people without symptoms can achieve a higher level of performance through a properly functioning cranium.
I am the only Certified Sacro-Occpitial Technic® (SOT®) practitioner in Pinellas county and only one of two in the entire Tampa bay area. Similarly, I am the only person teaching and practicing chiropractic craniopathy in these areas.

I'm a Chiropractic Physician, Psychotherapist and researcher. I'm interested in helping people live their lives to their full potential. That could be simply without pain. Or it could be without more complicated physical or mental health problems. Or it could be getting help in making changes in their life so that they can achieve their dreams.
