valdezDr Romulo ValdezBA, MA, Ph.D.

As a psychologist that has been treating anxiety and depression for over 25 years, I can espouse the effectiveness of LAR. It has its basis in the foundation of psychological theory.

For those of you that have suffered from either anxiety or depression, you know that the medication only serves to numb one’s experience of the real world. You also know that “talk therapy” cannot give you the tranquility that you desperately need. You most likely have spent thousands of dollars of health insurance money and money of your own to find peace of mind.

LAR gives you all the tools you need to work on your issues on an hour-by-hour basis. The beauty of this is that you are the master of your own destiny. You monitor your own progress and rely on other’s feedback to insure progress. Unlike other therapies, LAR gives you one year of ongoing support from a professional like me to help you in places where you might get stuck.

I have been trained by the very best in the field psychology and psychiatry as you can see by my credentials, and I endorse LAR with highest regards. The cure is at your disposal. Why wait.

Dr. Valdez obtained his undergraduate degree at the University of Vermont earning a B.A. in Religion with minor in Psychology. His M.A. degree in Clinical Psychology is from Central Michigan University. His Ph.D. was from Michigan State University where his major emphasis was on Counseling Psychology. He minored in Developmental Psychology and Statistics and Research Design. He is a Dr of psychology at Dartford and Harvard Medical.
