My Personal and Professional Journey Overcoming Adversity

by | Dec 13, 2013 | Brain Health, Inspiration, Personal Experiences | 0 comments

In 1990, after my stroke from my 60 mile an hour head on auto accident and brain surgery, I was told by every doctor in New England that I was permanently brain damaged. I was unable to walk or talk, had short term memory, and was in chronic pain. Hearing this, I took my knowledge from being a neuropsychologist and board health psychologist and found a way to recovery after seven years. In years prior, I received my Ed.D from Boston University, where the only difference between a Ph.D and an Ed.D is a language course. My postdoctoral fellowship was at Harvard. I am a neuropsychologist, as well as board certified in sports psychology and board certified in health psychology (See my full CV).

From both my personal and professional experience, I’ve written two books on the subject of brain injury and concussion, the first of which, Coping with Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, has been on the top 15% of Amazon sales since 1997. The new book, Coping with Concussion and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, is coming out in November. Both books cover almost every single symptom of brain trauma. Since I am an Ed.D and not an M.D. or specialist in neurology, I had two neurologists and over four dozen specialists read every single chapter in the book to ensure accuracy. As for my consulting, my team of experts and I help people choose the best treatment for them, and find clinicians who can and do help people recover.

My postings are simply to inform about a product out there that I have used and my patients have used, and that has worked for them and myself. The only products I actually endorse and sell personally are my three books, a couple audio CDs, and a CES machine. The CES machine is a FDA approved medical device for Anxiety, Depression and Insomnia. It has been out for over 50 years and there were double blind studies on it. All other postings are in no way an advertisement, and rather are solely to inform and help others. As a brain injury survivor, and practicing clinician, I do aim to educate and be a resource for others with neurological disorders.
