"I want to give a big shout out to Dr. Rider for helping me get back on the right path.  My twin brother died and the pain of that loss seemed unbearable.  I was overcome with anguish, grief, and sorrow and began questioning life itself.  But the techniques that Dr. Rider uses and the professionalism by which he uses them provided immediate and positive relief.  I have peace and hope for a bright future.  And, I'm smiling again."
