Specializes in Clinical Psychology

About the excellent goals you have set for yourself. Clinical hypnosis can be useful if you are also taught self hypnosis. If you go to a licensed clinical psychologist it is likely to be covered by insurance. Also consider 12 step programs such as aa ; na. Social support is very helpful. The very best to you.
