Do you try to ignore your CMT? Do you keep those feelings bottled up inside because you don’t have anyone with whom you can relate? Do you think no one will understand? Maybe you feel like it is nobody’s business but your own...
Psychotherapist David Tannenbaum felt the same way until he connected with the CMTA community, where he found freedom, acceptance, and unconditional love. Attending CMTA-led support groups, branches, and patient conferences, David met many people from all walks of life and his apprehension and fears faded into the background.
Today, David is an integral part of the CMTA, where he helps those with CMT find joy and fulfillment through mindfulness, meditation, and gratitude. Listen. Learn. Love.
David has been practicing psychotherapy for over 30 years (http://davidtannenbaumtherapy.com). David also volunteers for CMTA where he sits on the Advisory Board, runs the online Emotional Support Group (https://www.cmtausa.org/emotional-support-group/), and writes the “Ask David” column in the quarterly CMTA Report.
His areas of specialty are:
~ Finding meaning and purpose.
~ Stress-related issues, incorporating relaxation techniques into daily life.
~Developing the practice of mindfulness.
~Helping to live and thrive with a physical disability.
~Teaching to live in a more heart-centered way and experience a simple and profound intimacy that we all long for.
~Dealing with grief and loss and learning to find joy once again.
~Understanding and exploring the particular concerns of the LGBT community.
