Recently, I had the opportunity to be interviewed live about tinnitus and Meniere’s on the Vestibular Disorders Association’s Facebook page as part of their popular Video Education Series!

In this wide wide ranging conversation with hosts Dr. Kathleen Stross, DPT, MS, CHC and Dr. Danielle Tolman, DPT, we discussed my personal journey and struggles with tinnitus and Meniere’s disease and what I’ve learned after working with more than 800 tinnitus sufferers 1-on-1 as a tinnitus coach.

We had a great discussion and I think you all are going to get a lot out of this one!

Topics covered in the interview:

  • My own personal journey and struggles with Meniere’s disease and tinnitus
  • How I habituated to my tinnitus and found lasting relief
  • The progression of tinnitus suffering and how/why it becomes a vicious cycle
  • How I started working with tinnitus sufferers 1-on-1
