If : If your wife is experiencing behaviors/illnesses that are affecting her ability to be productive and enjoy her daily life, then she should seek out the care of a doctor. Start by calling her primary care doctor. They may be able to help with some of her chronic problems such as migraine and also may recommend a psychiatrist to help with her other problems. Good luck!

VRT for Phobias: Phobias and anxieties respond well to Virtual Reality Therapy(VRT). VRT is exposure therapy in a safe environment. The research suggests VRT is 90% effective. Seek out a therapist who uses VRT in your area. You can find providers through www.psious.com, www.limbix.com, or www.virtuallybetter.com.
