Ashley Davis had suffered from anxiety and depression, and lost hope of ever getting better, until she visited Theta Wellness.
 
This is her story in her own words:
 
“My doctor, a man named Dr. Porter referred me to Theta Wellness after basically testing me for anything and everything under the sun and realizing that anxiety and depression was not going away unless I got help for my “broken” brain.
 
 I have been on every antidepressant and anxiety medicine known to man since I was 19 years old (although looking back now, I had anxiety and depression starting much earlier) and it helped for the time being, but the side effects were horrendous.
 
I think that for mothers and wives, it’s hard for us to admit defeat and to say we need help. Although, I had been medicated and been in and out of traditional therapy since about 19, the problems just got worse as I got older. Growing up I lived a very charmed life, and in HS I was very involved in cheerleading and school activities, but I had severe social anxiety. Looking at me you wouldn’t believe it. People assume because you look one way and you seem outgoing and happy, that you must not be suffering, but that just isn’t true. Depression and anxiety can affect anyone, and the symptoms are not as black and white as you think. You might not even know you have it until you hit a breaking point. On the surface it looks like women will live these perfect lives with these “romantic comedy” like marriages and so they aren’t supposed to suffer from mental illness. After having my son 4 years ago, I suffered from horrible Post Partum Depression that never really went away until coming to Theta. I had tried everything you could think of and everything anyone suggested and it became crippling. It hurt my marriage, it made us stop trying to have more kids, it put a strain on my little family and gave me debilitating physical symptoms. I finally reached a breaking point and came to Theta Wellness, and my life completely and utterly changed.
 
My first visit to the center in Sandy was incredible. On the way to the office I was fighting with my husband and crying and feeling like there was no way this place could help me, but when I walked in, you could literally feel the incredible positive energy in that place. Diana and Mike could not have been more friendly, welcoming, and genuine. I talked to Mike that first week and he did NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) which is similar to traditional therapy, where you are just talking, but he was able to bring out things in me that YEARS of therapy couldn’t do. Mike also does Hypnosis Therapy and that is something that really gets to the root of the problem. In fact, my husband has been doing it with him, and he was able to connect and get to a place that he says he hasn’t been to in over 15 years. Just doing that alone, can be so incredibly beneficial. It was like a light went on, and I could see for the first time. Mike and Diana have changed our lives and I can proudly say that they are friends of my me and my husband now.
 
After completing the program (about a month) almost all of my physical symptoms have disappeared. I used to suffer from horrible stomachaches, bad neck and back pain, insomnia, chronic colds and flu like symptoms on a daily basis. Basically I was a 33 year old woman who felt like I was 80 years old! It’s incredible that this technology has helped with my blood pressure, insulin resistance, and chronic fatigue. My energy is that of when I was a teenager! It’s honestly incredible.”
