I, Anne Milligan, currently work in Louisville, Kentucky as a holistic-oriented Counseling Therapist/Psychotherapist. I've started this blog to de-mystify the process of therapy, to clarify how "normal" and sometimes "necessary" therapy is for just about everybody at one time or another, and to present therapy as a way to build a wellness lifestyle.
I've been following the work of Dr. Daniel Amen for a few years now. He wrote the book "Change Your Brain, Change Your Life" which is really revolutionary in terms of our understanding of the amazing human brain and how to protect it, right down to not allowing kids of head-butt in playing soccer! The only problem I have with it is that the kind of testing they do at their clinics (brain scans) are extraordinarily expensive and I haven't yet figured out why no one else seems to be utilizing this amazing technology to make it more accesible for ordinary working people.
