New opportunities for help for people on the West Coast

In my previous post, I mentioned Howard Schubiner, who is doing wonderful work with chronic pain patients in Michigan.  Since then I have talked with him and learned about two groups here in California that he thinks are great.

  1. David Schechter, MD, who also worked with Dr. Sarno and has a practice in Los Angeles.  He wrote the book Think Away Your Pain.

  2. Alan Gordon, LCSW, is a psychotherapist in Los Angeles, CA, specializing in the treatment of chronic pain. http://www.painpsychologycenter.com/how-it-works.html .  70% of Pain Psychology Center patients are seen over Skype.  This is great for people outside the LA area.  A study has shown that internet based counseling can be very effective.
