Laurie Singer - You're Not Crazy: There is hope for those experiencing anxiety, obsessions, or fetishes. | Brought to you by Raycon ( and Athletic Greens (

Laurie Singer is a board-certified licensed marriage and family therapist in applied behavior analysis. Motivated by the tragic death of her son in the late 80s, she devoted her life to the field of mental health.  She started her own company to create a team approach for helping individuals resolve behavioral and other mental health issues by applying behavioral and cognitive-behavioral therapy.

Laurie and I discuss how she developed the passion to compete in endurance challenges and what it was like for her to be indoctrinated into the Hall of Fame. The impact on her life from the death of her young son. Why does she believe that anyone who is stuck can become unstuck? How she develops plans that help individuals gain confidence by achieving their goals that they set for themselves. We discussed the strong scientific evidence and understanding that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are highly interdependent how she helps those who suffered deeply from anxiety and its manifestations and so much more.
