Private Consultation

Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks so much for reaching out to me directly.

Yes, the idea is that the brain and mind have significant control over bodily sensations and symptoms. The best way to address this is psychotherapy. Talk therapy twice a week with a licensed therapist is highly effective, though can sometimes take several months to be most effective. I would recommend this to you.
