About Dave

For decades, I sought treatment for my PTSD. But I didn’t even know that’s what it was! I thought that was just for war veterans and so did all my therapists and doctors, who gave me every diagnosis except the correct one.

I started seeing therapists when I was a kid. They made me talk about the worst moments of my life every week until I couldn’t take it anymore. I have tried SIXTEEN different psych-meds and none of them ever did for me what Cannabis did. Not even close. I did everything I could to get better, but the help didn’t help. Does that sound familiar to you?

I took matters into my own hands. I knew something was wrong with me and I would be damned if I couldn’t figure it out. I studied psychology and got my doctorate. I learned a way of doing therapy that is painless and actually works.

I changed my practice and my life. I became legal and now get the medicine that I need to take care of myself and my family. I have read acres of books and interviewed thousands of people with PTSD.

I understand what you are going through and can help you to understand yourself better than ever. I am not like all the others. I can actually help you.
