As Seen In
A personal note from Alan Simberg Ph.D.
What’s most important to me with the people that come to see me is that they don’t feel that there is something wrong with them, or that they’re bad or that they are broken. I really believe that we are all just variations of one another and if we can learn to respect ourselves and respect each other and realize that we all have very similar struggles and that the important thing is to identify those struggles without judgment. Just see them for what they are and learn how to manage them so that we can develop peace of mind in our lives. I think that’s an essential component of what I bring in the work that I do with the clients that come to see me.
I find that with the economic pressure in today's society and certainly all the work pressures that people worry a lot and of course, worry and anxiety are very closely related and unfortunately many people don’t know how to manage their stress and they will resort to either drugs or alcohol.
If a person comes to see me that’s drinking alcohol I don’t see it as my job to make them stop. I see it as my job to help them to decide if they want to stop and I also help them to understand how their drinking could be affecting their lives.
One of the strategies I use is known as cognitive behavioral therapy which very simply put is a way of working with people to help them understand how their thoughts can influence their mood. I also talk with them about nutrition from the point of view of how blood sugar can affect mood and how eating three meals a day and keeping their blood sugar within a particular range helps to stabilize their mood.
I think if I had to identify one main purpose or one main intention I have when clients come to see me it would be to help that person, or that couple or that family to accomplish the goals that they came in to see me about and for me not to set the agenda for them but for me to meet their needs as best as I can.

Share your message with the world
Share Your Message with the World started out as an idea on how I could get everyone to share their stories.
Well, I must say that after finding 30 people to commit to telling their story, I never realized how powerful this was going to be.
I am a BIG believer that no-one cares a lot about what you're selling, offering or providing until they know more about you.
This book will tell you the personal journeys of people around the world, how they overcame the struggles of life and stayed focused on the place they were aiming for.
It is true that every day our direction may change but the one really important thing is that you stay focused on where you are going, conquering the struggles and recognizing the lessons learned from it.
I believe that everyone needs to hear someone else's story to be able to continue through their daily struggles.
This book is the proof you need to know that you too can make it to the finish line.
Make sure to Share Your Message and learn how you can also help someone through their journey of life.
