Welcome to The Headache Coach, my blog about headache healing and how it is possible for you too. I’ve redesigned the site and added menu tabs for my blog post archives, published works, and social media sites, so they’re all easily accessible.
Please feel free to come in, kick off your shoes, and let your hair down. This is a place for people who want to heal their headaches, and the family and friends who love them. And you, what brings you here?
I hope my approach is helpful for you on your headache journey. Please fill out the contact form to schedule an appointment or a free introductory phone consultation.
Thank you for visiting, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
