About

Bio

I have a blog that I like to use as a jump start for effective psychotherapy. If you might choose to consult with me - I'd like you to read my piece on 'Before we get started'. It's here: https://doctorweixel.wordpress.com/2015/03/31/before-we-get-started/ As for me - I have 30 Years Clinical experience. Originally from NYC. Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from University of Connecticut 1985. Research on Placebo Effects. Internship at Audie Murphy Veterans Administration Hospital in San Antonio, TX. Training in Pain Management Health Psychology. Now living in very rural MO with a few horses, a garden, some cats and a dog. I see clients at a Veterans Home and do psychological evaluations for prospective medical procedure candidates. I spent years as a single mom with an only child and with the good fortune of City Univ of NY, Grandma's babysitting and a Scholarship to Grad School, I put myself through to a Ph.D. My daughter's a health food sales rep, married and a wonderful mother of three sons - the oldest heading off to college. My partner and I ran a Tooling Design Mfg business that helped me ignore the devastating impact of the pharma-boom and managed care mania on psychotherapy. He and I are semi-retired and use our professional skills as we choose - our expertise is still in demand and it is up to us to decide how much to do. How nice is that! I have a special interest in Health Psychology and Mindful approaches to life.

Please say more: These symptoms are common to so many conditions. It's not possible to know what's going on without much more descriptive detail. Please tell us more and we'll all try to help.

Best plan: Try to rinse raw rice in strainer several times till water runs nearly clear. That rids the surface of starch and most of the possible bad things. Also (sadly) brown (healthier) rice may have greater arsenic risk. Also, cook it as you know to be the right way. I don't think over/under increases the arsenic - rinsing does help.

Yes: Is there a difference between $600 and $800? Too much can cause liver damage, so don't mess around. Talk w/ the druggist - or a few if they are nt expert - or your trusted Dr if you have one. But don't mess w/ you liver - it's a vital organ. If the pain is chronic, discuss a referral for CBT to learn mgmt skills.
