Anxiety is literally toxic, and can cause immune disorders and cancer, heart attacks and stroke, addictions, asthma, and the inability to properly sleep, breathe, or digest. You are right to seek help now!
Our therapies are calming. In fact, getting upset just makes the neurological circuit of anxiety stronger - it adds dendrites! So therapies that maintain calm are scientifically more effective.
As time goes by, I realize more and more how impactful and life changing our sessions have been for me." -- Deb R., San Diego
"Lorrie is amazing! I had severe baggage from childhood which was related to many forms of traumatic abuse. I've been to many therapists over the years and none seemed to help. In only a handful of sessions, Lorrie was able to help me become completely cured of the stress, phobias, and insecurities that plagued my life when I first walked into her office.
By cure, I mean cure.
Those triggers no longer exist for me and I can finally live free of the past. Finally! She truly has a gift and her methods are like no one else I have experienced. If you want healing and closure, Lorrie can take you there. I am so grateful I met her."
-- Erin S., Sarasota, FL.
"I had a hard time responding to your question about my progress because the things that were bothering me aren't anymore and I have to go back and really try to remember. Which is great!" -- Tami R.

TIPS TO STOP PANIC AT HOME
If there is panic, then there's often worry about a heart attack, fainting, finding an exit, or being discovered. Life may become smaller as you to try to minimize that fear.
Fortunately, Panic Disorder (PD) is NOT a personality disorder. It’s a BLOOD GAS DISORDER. Panic disorder is best treated using SCIENCE.
"My panic attacks stopped. No more embarrassing trips to the E.R.. I'm free!" -- Marty L.,
"The ER docs just offered me Xanax. I thought I was dying and they almost sneered when they told me it was 'just' panic. Nobody explained to me why this has happened, or what to do about it. The experience left me feeling crazy and vulnerable. In only a handful of visits to Lorrie, I feel calm, and clear, and back in control of my life. Amazing!" -- Diane S., Santa Monica
TIPS TO HANDLE PANIC UNTIL YOUR APPOINTMENT
Panic starts when your body is losing too much carbon dioxide (CO2) from sighing, yawning, breath holding, gasping, or sniffing. So your whole body, including your brain, vasoconstricts - causing dizziness, confusion, numbness, tingling, and even seizure-like symptoms.
A LASTING FIX comes from RETRAINING YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM through BIOFEEDBACK. Neurofeedback and HRV biofeedback treat PD. In a short while, clients come in and say, "I used to have panic." They know, deep inside, that their system has become too stable to generate panic and they are free of it.
"If you have the opportunity to work with Lorrie I’d highly suggest you jump at the chance to do so." -- Rick M, Phoenix
