Providing Online Therapy in FL & Migraine Coaching Throughout the U.S.

You feel a familiar build up of pain. Small at first, but there. Maybe it’s just a headache, you think. You hope. But you’re working and you need to tough it out, you tell yourself. You can’t keep missing work, you can’t keep delaying this “to-do!”

Just one more hour! It’ll go away…right?

Wrong. Before you know it, your headache is a throbbing, stabbing, migraine. All you can think about is your pain and how to stop it. Every noise is a siren, every light a high beam into your brain. Your muscles in your neck and shoulders seem to harden like rocks and your stomach clenches.

Not again, you think. I can’t miss work repeatedly like this. Or skip dinner tonight with the family. Lose out on time with friends over and over. Miss tucking your children in.

Does your family think you’re avoiding them? Do your friends think you’re pretending, that this is just an excuse to duck out?

The guilt sets in, the stress, the anxiety, the sadness.

You can’t face being stuck in a dark room, alone, stuck with this pain.

You can’t keep missing out on life.

I can help you get back in the game.
(Trust me, I know about this one.)

 

How Can a Therapist and Migraine Coach Help Me With Migraines?

Well if you didn’t already know…

Stress Brings on Migraines

Many people who suffer from migraines also struggle with high levels of stress and anxiety. Out of the many factors that cause migraines, stress is one of the major triggers. According to the American Headache Society, 4 out of 5 people with migraines report stress as a trigger, and more than half of migraine sufferers will have at least one anxiety disorder in their lifetime.

Below are more triggers for migraines that you might be exposed to or engaged in that you may not even know of!

  • Certain foods and food additives
  • Weather and barometric pressure
  • Menstrual cycles
  • Excessive exercise and strain
  • Fluorescent lighting or bright lights, and digital screens

  • Certain fragrances
  • Medications

  • Lack of sleep, or inconsistent sleep

You Don’t Need Headaches to Be Diagnosed With Migraines

Migraines manifest in ways other than just headaches. There are millions of people that have been diagnosed with migraines that do not experience any headaches or head pain at all.

For example, there is one type of migraine called vestibular migraines, where people experience dizziness. Trust me, I know about this one. Unfortunately, I’ve suffered from it for years and went misdiagnosed for a looong time. Believe you me when I say I’m passionate about helping people cope with migraines. I’m right there in the boat with you! 😉

PART 3 OF MY SYSTEM TO FIGHT MIGRAINES

Gain relaxation tools to help reduce your stress and anxiety levels so you lower the overall levels of migraines you have. 

Learn about natural ways to help with the pain of migraines, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness meditation, and evidence-based essential oil treatments.

According to the American Migraine Foundation, 30-60% of all patients who use relaxation techniques and CBT have fewer migraines than before treatment. Over the years, I’ve had many neurologists refer their patients to me, as they understand the incredible mind-body connection and beneficial impact CBT has when it comes to treating migraines. Through cognitive behavioral therapy, we can work on changing harmful thought patterns that may be increasing the likelihood of triggering a migraine. These essential stress-relieving tools can reduce the number or severity of your migraines, which can greatly improve your quality of life!

So what do you have to lose?
