Before earning a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychotherapy from New York University and adopting a daily meditation/green juice/exercise lifestyle, I worked as a talent agent for actors and super models. I was your typical TypeA overachiever with zero balance and no internal peace. My ambition and fearless attitude fanned the “must get to the top” flames as I zipped across the country from Los Angeles to New York City fueled by caffeine, nicotine, and adrenalin. (I was shocked to discover that espresso is not a food group!)
When it became evident that the things (money, power, sexy job) that I thought would make me happy didn’t, I could no longer ignore the voice in my heart asking, “Isn’t there something more meaningful you could be doing with your life than making super models richer?”
Happily, there was.

I went back to school to get my master’s to become a therapist in 1997, and less than a year later, I got what I like to call my PhD in Fear.
I had just started my private practice in New York City and married my husband, Victor Juhasz, a widower with three teenage sons. Within a year, my father died unexpectedly, I was diagnosed with cancer (twice), underwent two surgeries plus radiation treatments, and, completing my PhD in Fear, Vic and I were robbed at gunpoint in our home.
These experiences forced me to reexamine my relationship to fear. I had never been fearful before (or so I thought!), but now I was paralyzed by fear. From my professional experience as a therapist, I knew I could not let fear dominate my thoughts, my decisions, and my actions. I worked through my fear with my therapist, and my commitment to becoming an expert on fear and the mind/body connection was born.
