I was a high school teacher in Arizona. Within a span of two years, I had three accidents each resulting in Brain Trauma Injury. After one of the accidents I couldn’t see out of my left eye and my whole left side was numb. Though the doctor said it was merely a concussion, my life started changing. Because of the trauma to my brain, my thinking began being muddled. I would keep myself locked in my home, ultimately becoming a recluse. I couldn’t even go through a drive thru window to order food because the stress of talking to a stranger was too much for me to handle.
Hating facing dozens of students everyday, I resigned from teaching at 34 years old and, thereafter, began going from job to job – quitting one, quitting the next or being fired – my life was spiraling. I was making poor choices financially, struggling to maintain a job, and having bouts of irrational behavior and depression. While trying to manage my life I was diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder and started to take medication.
While traveling to a part-time job in Salt Lake City, I was in another car accident that ended in spinal surgery. After the surgery, I had little choice except to move in with my parents. One morning, my dad found me sitting cross-legged, head down and all of my personal belongings scattered on the floor around me. I was unsure what to do with all of my stuff. I literally did not have the ability to organize my belongings. It appeared to my dad as though my brain was not functioning.
My mom helped me get a job, which lasted 3 days. I then got another job that only lasted three weeks. After many jobs, over nearly four years, I had established that I just couldn’t stand to be around people. My parents were at their wits end, unsure how to help me. They vaguely knew of The McCrossin Technique and contacted a practitioner to see if there was any help for me. Arrangements were made and I received Brain Integration.
My whole world changed! My fear and anxiety had virtually vanished and my mindset literally changed to where I had a new, positive outlook on life. I returned to teaching.
During that time, my dad was introduced to Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). A technique that helps people overcome a variety of emotional issues. Gary Craig, the creator of EFT told my dad to try it on anything. He did; in 9 weeks he lost 36 lbs!
My dad called me and started to discuss creating a small business. We talked about how we could help people through EFT and The McCrossin Technique. I completed the requirements and course work to become certified practitioner. I have been successfully helping people since 2009.
