Ellen Kamhi PhD, RN, www.naturalnurse.com interviews Dr. Laurie Nadel. Dr. Nadel specializes in helping people who are struggling with fears that prevent them from moving forward. Dr. Nadel's practice is focused on providing support, insight, and effective interventions that give the patient strategies and tools to overcome those fears relatively quickly, so that they can be replaced by calm, confidence, and a sense of well-being. Her mission is to offer short-term, goal-oriented, patient-focused therapy with personal attention and quality care. For those who have tried traditional psychotherapy, Dr. Nadel offers a new, caring approach to resolving internal conflicts and issues that have not responded well to previous treatments. A specialist in the physiology of non-verbal communication, Dr. Nadel knows how to sit with the patient's Unconscious (or subconscious) mind in a reassuring way to create a profound rapport that facilitates the unburdening process. In private practice since 1991, she works collaboratively with psychiatrists, M.D.'s, and psychologists to create a supportive team for each patient. . Dr. Nadel has been an expert witness in a PTSD case in the U.S. Disctrict Court for the Southern District of New York.
