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

- 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.
