YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I am available - for a very reasonable fee - for a conversation by phone or Skype.
I bring to the conversation 17 years of insight as an award-winning mental health author and advocate. I also bring to the table my own life experience in dealing with the day-to-day challenges of my illness.
I am the author of Living Well with Depression and Bipolar Disorder: What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You That You Need to Know (HarperCollins, 2006), and the publisher of The Bipolar Expert Series, which includes my new book, NOT JUST UP AND DOWN. The more than 100 articles on this website speak to my knowledge and commitment.
I am equipped to help you understand the true nature of your illness and the things you need to know to help you make up your own mind about issues that matter to you. Your purpose in talking to me is to try to make some sense out of the perplexing riddles this illness throws your way. My purpose is to help you turn riddles into solutions.
Please note: I am not a doctor or clinician or social worker or any other kind of professional. I cannot offer specific medical or treatment or therapeutic advice, nor can I assist you in a crisis or in connecting you to treatment or social or other services.
But I am in a position to answer the kind of questions that your doctor or clinician has neither the time nor the inclination to discuss with you. Your concerns are very important to me. Let's talk.
