Helping Adults Be More Engaged With Life
If you live with chronic pain like I do, you know it affects your sleep, your energy, your attention span, and your mood. I also know how difficult it can be to try to explain what chronic pain is like to someone who has never experienced it. I know my techniques for handling chronic pain work for me. I know they’ve brought me new ways to relate to myself and to those I care about, decreased anxiety regarding my pain, and provided a sense of peace.

As a adults challenged with overwhelming pain you may be feeling:
- widespread pain

As Your Therapist, I Can Help You Be More Engaged With Life
My name is Dr. Peter H. Addy and I’m a therapist who is uniquely qualified to help you be more engaged with life. I developed fibromyalgia syndrome when I was 32. I became increasingly exhausted and unable to function. My pain went way up and my memory, attention, and energy went way down. I know how hard and overwhelming chronic pain can be, and how frustrating it can be to navigate our healthcare system. I will listen to you without judgment, and I will be on your side as you learn to accept your body and change your habits and patterns. My passion is to see adults create and recreate healthy relationships with their bodies instead of fighting against them, and learning new ways to live with meaning in the world.
