"“Michael helped me in a way that no doctor or therapist has been able to! His personal experience combined with his optimistic, constructive input and guidance is priceless. I highly recommend his coaching sessions to anyone going through withdrawal.” Shelly, Ohio

"Because of Michael I feel supported and not so alone. It's comforting to talk to someone who has gone through the same ordeal and actually healed from it. The feedback he sends after our talks is very useful and encouraging, and I would definitely recommend his services."

 Kathy, CA

About seven years ago I was suffering through the first portions of my protracted withdrawal from the SSRI medication Paxil (as well as navigating the beginnings of my taper off the tranquilizer Xanax). I was in a lot of pain (mentally, physically, and emotionally), and motivation and locomotion seemed nearly impossible to come by. I was overweight, de...

Determination can take you far in this life. It can, more than most any other factor, ensure that you meet your goals, both small and large, and it can set you on a path to eventually contributing in a big way—contributing both to the lives of others and to your own happiness and legacy.

So, what is determination? Well, let’s first begin with a list of...

A lot of my coaching work is done with individuals who are working their way through antidepressant withdrawal and/or benzodiazepine withdrawal. Many people going through prescription drug withdrawal fear it is the end. The end of the road, the end of productivity. The end of exciting and joyful living. But I know from experience that it isn’t any of t...

But guess what? Determination is all you need right now. It’s more important than the perfect set of circumstances. In fact, that’s the beauty of it. Determination actually thrives on difficulties, so if you are experiencing challenges in your life right now, then all the better.

“Facing difficulties is inevitable. Learning from them is optional.” That is a quote from an American pastor and author by the name of John C. Maxwell. Now, at the age of forty-one, I can recognize the wisdom in that quote, and I would like to add the following: “Most of us wouldn’t choose to relive the most difficult days of our lives, but neither wou...

Antidepressant withdrawal and benzodiazepine withdrawal—like many of the other challenges we face in this life—can bring us closer to God if we let them. It is often when we are in the deepest pits of despair that we end up connecting to God in the most meaningful of ways, and here are a few of the ways in which my painful ordeal helped me to grow spir...

I stopped going to the doctor. I started going to the gym. I stopped smoking cigarettes. I began walking and doing push-ups, and then I became an avid runner. I relied on God throughout it all. There was a lot of pain and sacrifice and determination packed into the years-long scenario described so briefly here—we often must make sacrifices to achieve o...

If you are currently at the computer day and night scouring the internet for stories of SSRI or benzo healing, you’ve found one here—mine—and I would also like to direct your attention to the Gospels of the New Testament. Those Bible books—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John—are full of stories that involve a compassionate and powerful Jesus pulling people b...
