Keith will meet with you in-person, by phone or via Skype. He is extremely skilled at delivering his unique combination of life coaching, mentoring and spiritual counseling to defeat depressed mood, overcome stress and anxiety, achieve sobriety and stop overeating. He also routinely works with men and women of all ages who are suffering no particular disorder, but wish to become happier and more successful than ever.
Keith believes that the key to recovering completely and revitalizing oneself is seeing the complete truth about one’s life story—and no longer being at the mercy of self-defeating patterns of emotion, thought and behavior.
“There is no reason why you can’t become the person you were meant to be from all time—re-energized, freed from self-defeating thoughts, emotions and behaviors, and pursuing heart-felt goals and big dreams.”– Keith Ablow
Health Consultant/Patient Navigator
Keith is uniquely qualified to review your current and past symptoms, as well as the entire history of treatments you have received, and then tell you whether the strategies being used to help you with depression, anxiety, attention deficit disorder, addiction or any other psychiatric condition are complete and state-of-the-art. He can make you aware of other effective treatments your clinicians can or should consider, other testing that should be considered, as well as why the treatments being offered may be falling short or causing side-effects.
Research shows, for example, that up to 70 percent of people being treated for depression have still not recovered three months later. One study found that only 22 percent of those treated for depression by their primary care doctors were rid of their symptoms.
The truth is that depression and anxiety and many other disorders are completely treatable when a comprehensive and creative plan is put into play. Keith can be your consultant, coach and researcher. He will communicate directly with you, with your doctor or therapist, with your health insurer and anyone else necessary, to make that happen and get you well.
“Far more people should be recovering completely from disorders that affect the mind. It is a primary mission of mine to consult to those folks and their treatment teams, so that we, together, can conquer depression, anxiety or any other illness.” –Keith Ablow
Natural, Holistic Remedies
Keith is an expert at harnessing the power of vitamins, amino acids and herbal remedies to tackle depression, anxiety and problems with attention, overeating, sleep and energy.
Here are just a few examples of the many, many remedies Keith helps you consider and implement: In several studies, the supplement curcumin (from the spice turmeric) has been proven just as effective as Prozac for depression. Several studies also point to lavender oil capsules as being as effective as many medications used for anxiety.
There is reason to believe that the supplements fisetin, glutathione, resveratrol, DHEA and many others can be extremely helpful in both depression and anxiety.
Then there is exposure to bright light (using a simple, relatively inexpensive device), the proper use of meditation (sometimes using a device to make it more powerful) and the role of unique forms of exercise.
Keith will help you create a rational approach to the use of supplements, advise you on how to change your diet (not only if you need to lose weight, but also to increase your mood, decrease your anxiety and improve your energy), and make you aware of holistic treatments you might never otherwise know about to restore you to well-being.
“Scientific research trials have proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that vitamin, amino acid and herbal remedies rival and sometimes exceed the efficacy of psychiatric medications—with a much lower risk of side effects. Deploying these holistic strategies—and others—is the new frontier in achieving optimal well-being.” –Keith Ablow
Keith works with couples who are struggling to save their relationships, as well as those simply striving to enrich the connections they have built. Keith will learn about each of you as an individual, in order to understand the two of you as a couple. He will serve as your coach, advisor and even referee when needed.
Whereas couples counseling can be a long and drawn out process in the hands of others, Keith is able to quickly identify the issues with which couples are struggling and offer practical ways to overcome these issues.
In a focused and empathetic way, Keith will help you develop and improve your communication skills, rebuild trust, resurrect intimacy and embrace the full potential of your relationship, once again.
“Very often, couples wait five or ten or even twenty years to really know one another and understand why they chose to take a lifelong journey together. The alchemy of marriage is such that treasures of both compassion and passion may not be unearthed, until difficulties arise. Crises in marriage are always opportunities. –Keith Ablow
Leadership, Executive and Crisis Coaching
Keith has consulted to some of the most prominent CEOs, investors, politicians and corporations in America, in Europe and in Asia… helping them defeat negative patterns of thought and behavior, think strategically and outperform their competition. He has also been an invaluable support and strategist for individuals facing moments of professional or personal crisis.
“The hurdles to a person or a company outperforming are often internal and psychological. The roots of confidence, creativity and vision reach very deep. By clearing away the unconscious hurdles in the way of clear thought, courageous action and inspiring communication, managers and executives can take their skills and successes to a whole new level.” – Keith Ablow
