Massage therapist
"It is very difficult to put into words exactly how instrumental Dr. Rimka has been in helping my son work through his challenges. Although he graduated from high school in 2014, the years of battling social anxiety and emotional turmoil took its toll on him, leaving him mentally paralyzed. He was unwilling to practice driving on the freeway with his permit, refused to take his driver’s test from fear of failure, and was mostly incapable of walking into a store and applying for a job. Being unable to drive, work, or go to school contributed to him feeling even worse about himself. Despite being very intelligent, he was so anxious that panic attacks were very common to the point he couldn’t even speak. Throughout 2015, Dr. Rimka worked with him through Neurofeedback, nutrition, counseling and some good old fashioned tough love. It was not always easy. At times he regressed and stopped eating and caring for himself. Dr. Rimka knew he also needed a therapeutic male influence, but his anxiety was so intense in the beginning that he had panic attacks on the day of the appointments for that therapist referral. So she continued to balance his brain and reduce his anxiety so that he would feel safe enough with someone besides only her. By bringing Jeff into the therapy process, my son was able to finish the last steps in his care. The combination of Dr. Rimka and Jeff's love/support/wisdom and a touch of helping his brain “grow up” was what he needed. I am so proud to say that today, my son has a license, is working 20 hours a week, drives a car he saved for and bought by himself, is taking his supplements (on his own), and making plans for his future. In addition, he smiles all the time and seems genuinely happy! He would not be where he is today without Dr. Rimka and Jeff. The gratitude and love that we have for them can never be expressed. I will be bringing my entire family to Dr. Rimka, and I highly recommend her to my clients, friends, and family."
