Frank Healy of Phenomenal Memory, a Licensed Professional Counselor and Life Coach. who has written seven books including the Heal Your Memories series joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Personal Development Channels. Frank helps people heal the emotional wounds from past traumatic memories.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Frank Healy discuss the following:

  1. Tell everyone about your exceptional memory?
  2. When did you first know you had it?
  3. What are the good and bad things about your memory?
  4. Tell everyone bout your self-help series Heal Your Memories?
  5. Can everyone heal themselves from past traumas?
  6. What is next for you and your writing?

Frank Healy is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Life Coach. He is one of about 80 people who have been classified as having Hyperthymesia by the University of California. Frank participated in their research studies because he remembers every day of his life since he was six years old. He is now in his 50’s. His memory of each day includes the day of the week, the weather in his locale, news events and personal experiences. Recalling so much in his life had its advantages and disadvantages.

The advantages include recall of every happy experience he had with friends, family, school, and his wife. The corollary of that is that he remembers all the negative things. Bad days at work and school, slights from people, romantic breakups etc. Before he began his own journey, he would recall bad memories with the same emotional intensity as if he was experiencing it now. He had learned to let go of the feelings.

Frank now counsels and coaches people to heal from the ill effects of their own traumatic and unpleasant memories. This can help people be happier and move on to a successful present and future.

Frank lives with his wife in Dennisville, New Jersey. He is in private practice at Associates for Life Enhancement in Northfield, New Jersey. Frank enjoys going to the beach, reading, writing, playing quizzo with friends (It's a trivia game) and playing ball with his grandsons.

Dr. Ann Schiebert, a psychologist and a specialist in the treatment of trauma, chemical dependency, dual diagnosis, and codependency at one of America’s largest HMO's joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Mental Health Channels. Dr. Schiebert also works in the hospital and emergency department evaluating psych crisis patients.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Ann Schiebert discuss the following:

  1. Today we are going to talk about the opioid epidemic and teens. How did you become interested in this topic?
  2. What are opioids or opiates?
  3. How do opioids effect brain development in a teen?
  4. How do we keep our teens safe from opioids?
  5. What should we do for pain instead of taking prescription pain killers?

Dr. Ann Schiebert is a psychologist in the Emergency Department (ED) at the medical center of one of the country’s most respected major HMO’s. There, she evaluates for safety, determines types of treatments, assesses capacity and cognitive impairment, and provides feedback and support for families of patients in the ED. In addition, Dr. Schiebert also works in the medical center’s Chemical Dependency Department where she treats patients challenged by trauma, chemical dependency, codependency and dual diagnosis.

Ann has an excellent success rate in helping families turn their situations around, and she is highly sought after for her work. She finds it rewarding to facilitate patients in discovering their wonderful, authentic selves, and getting them back to a healthy mindset. Another of Dr. Schiebert’s area of expertise is helping people in unhappy romantic relationships investigate how they got in their current situation, how to reconsider the “path to romance,” and how to create happier long-term relationships.

Her teaching experience pertaining to Clinical Skills and Psychopathology during graduate school gave Ann an ability to interact with a variety of audiences and to be comfortable doing so. As a psychologist, she uses this “gift” to teach groups of between thirty and forty patients on the topics of communication, how to work a program of recovery and healthy relationships.

Ann has penned a series of books titled Let’s Make a Contract. She has four in the series thus far, having to do with getting teens through substance abuse, getting them through high school and beyond, getting adults through unhappy romantic relationships, and her most recent, getting your teen past the opioid epidemic. She’s been up close and personal to all of those matters in her own life. If she were a member of a tribe, her special role would be healer, and rightfully so.

In her spare time Ann enjoys traveling to Europe. She lives in the Bay Area with her husband and her two ragamuffin kittens, Biscuit and Teddy. She is the mother of three adult children.
