Have you or a family member had an adverse medical diagnosis? Has it been difficult on you and other family members? Don’t know where to turn?
Sandi Neiman, a Medical Family Therapist is offering free online therapy consultation to Texas residents. In her online practice, based in Georgetown Texas, she treats those suffering from depression, anxiety and tension due to a medical diagnosis or change in medical condition of the client or their family, such as a cancer diagnosis, the effects of chemotherapy and end of life decisions.
Medical Family Therapy originated years ago when the health industry began to recognize that mental health affects patients in addition to their medical issues and can often be the focus of illness and recovery.
Usage of the term “medical” is very confusing to the public and leads to thoughts of MDs, pharmaceuticals, hospitals and perhaps surgery. Everywhere in the health industry, trade jargon is still used much to the frustration of patients.
One of Sandi's goals is to remove all trade jargon so that services and results provided are easily understood by everyone involved. It doesn’t help my cause that universities are still offering courses for Medical Family Therapy.
The free online therapy consultation will help reduce any concerns and answer all questions. The consultation lasts for 20 minutes and conducted in an informal setting directly with Sandi Neiman (not a junior associate). Most therapists only offer 5 or 10 minute calls, which is not long enough to accomplish much.

Therapy is for anyone including MDs, celebrities and even Royalty. Prince Harry who lives permanently in a fishbowl has talked publicly about the effects his mother; Princess Diana's death had on him. He spent 20 years refusing to think about her death convinced "why would that help?" Prince Harry finally reached a point where "burying his head in the sand" didn't work and reached out to therapy and talk about his pain.
Many celebrities have been outspoken about how therapy has helped them through difficult patches. The outspoken ones are only the tip of the iceberg.
Jon Hamm gained success late in his career by “owning” the role of dapper Don Draper in free therapy consultation the TV series Mad Men. Hamm was 10 years old when his mother died, suddenly, of stomach cancer and 10 years later, after his father died, he struggled with chronic depression.
In an interview with The Guardian Jon Hamm states, "I did do therapy and antidepressants for a brief period, which helped me. Which is what therapy does: it gives you another perspective when you are so lost in your own spiral. It helps.”
You don’t have to be Royalty or a celebrity to benefit from Medical Family Therapy treatment. For more information or to schedule a free online therapy consultation Sandi Neiman can be reached at 615-438-3964.
