On paper Dr. Howard Liebgold had an exceptionally successful life, but secretly he struggled with fears that nearly cost him everything. He was on the brink of suicide, when a "chance" story on the 10 o'clock news gave him reason to hope there might be another way.

I first discovered Dr. Liebgold's dramatic story in his book "Freedom from Fear: Overcoming Anxiety, Phobias and Panic. Dr. Liebgold is credited with directly helping more than 10,000 people overcome their own crippling phobias. While I never met Dr. Liebgold in person, I count myself in that number.
