My name is Dave Berman. All of these challenges were mine at one point. In fact, in high school I was diagnosed bipolar and told I'd be on meds the rest of my life.
For 20 years that distorted my sense of self. I wasn't happy despite academic, professional, and personal achievements. Then I caught a glimpse of pronoia and everything began to change for me.
In less than a year, I was undiagnosed and unmedicated, remaining mentally healthy ever since 2009.
The next year I began training as a life coach and hypnotherapist, eventually becoming a leader and innovator in the field for my work with laughter.
