Shame and anxiety (hidden or tormentingly on the surface) are key discomforts in each person; however, everyone is miraculously unique. In my practice, we aim to pinpoint the help you need and offer the quickest and most lasting treatment appropriate. Sometimes that is intensive psychotherapy

Pigoons and Astrocytes

I have piles of fascinating intentions on my desk(s).  Lotsa interesting science news comes by that I’d like to abstract for this blog.  And rarely get to.  This one is unique and too important to be put off.  It’s about human glial cells…and how, when grown in mouse brains, the mice get smarter.   Reminds […]

The New Yorker magazine dated April 6, 2015 has an article on tDCS by Elif Batuman entitled, ELECTRIFIED: adventures in transcranial electrical direct-current stimulation.  As one expects of a New Yorker article it is captivating and clear; it is also relatively short.  Perhaps not so short. About 6,000 words.  I had just finished 10 minutes of […]
