Number of patients you have seen who have had TMS: I have worked with quite a few people who I believe have TMS but it is difficult for some of them to accept the diagnosis. I did see a few who had complete resolution of their symptoms.

Have you ever suffered from TMS? Yes

Are you able to conduct therapy sessions over the phone? Yes (However, insurance will not cover)

What insurance plans do you currently accept? None

Do you have a sliding scale of payment for people not covered by insurance? Yes

What have you done to educate yourself about TMS, and what plans do you have for further education about TMS?
Having had a severe case of TMS myself, I'm pretty much an expert as I researched everything possible on the subject and cured myself using Dr. Sarno's method. Since then I have had extensive coursework in the psychology of TMS. I attended the first TMS conference in Ann Arbor, Michigan and later attended a TMS conference in Los Angeles and one in New York City.

I keep up with additional trainings through the TMS Wiki. I have also trained other therapists about TMS and wrote the article, "When Stress Hurts” which can be found on the TMS Wiki.
