More About the Author

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

John Tsilimparis recently published his latest memoir, MORTAL BONDS, in Kindle version available to be uploaded. The memoir chronicles the difficult dying of a mother and father--and their deaths within thirteen days of each other. It is also an intimate, true account of personal struggle and transformation. MORTAL BONDS is about loving and accepting difficult or impossible parents even when they have wounded you almost mortally. It's about overcoming shame, reconciling the past and present. It's about learning to trust life and death.

John Tsilimparis is a writer and psychotherapist in Los Angeles and was featured on the hit TV show, OBSESSED, where he treated individuals with OCD on camera. The show aired on A&E and received a great deal of exposure and success. John has also appeared on television as an expert on addiction and other psychiatric conditions. He was featured on Larry King Live, The View, Fox News, and KTLA-News. He was also featured on several radio programs in the Los Angeles area.

In his psychotherapy work, he treats individuals suffering from anxiety disorders, particularly OCD, depression, and addiction, and also specializes in bereavement counseling. His approach is a cutting edge theoretical orientation called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which focuses on changing individuals' personal thinking and belief systems about every aspect of life.

John is a former staff clinician at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Beverly Hills, where he worked in an outpatient psychiatric program. At Cedars, he helped patients suffering from severe mental disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. He is an adjunct faculty member at Pepperdine University and Antioch University. He teaches classes on the master's level in chemical dependency and supervises students in a Practicum class.

John Tsilimparis is the editor of the book Living with Panic Disorder (Publish America, 2003), a collection of stories written by panic disorder sufferers throughout the country. He was inspired to write his own story and publish the book because of his own personal experiences with panic disorder as a child. The book has increased his prominence as an authority on anxiety disorders and he is widely known as an authority in the field.
John was born in New York City in 1961. He moved to Los Angeles in 1991.

Although I don't suffer from panic disorder, I know quite a few people who have at some point in their lives, and it was touching to read such a varied collection of experiences. I would highly recommend this as an enlightening read or as a gift!

I recently read this book and was really touched by the stories contained within. There were a variety of different perspectives that anyone who has ever suffered from Panic Disorder could relate to. Its a great read. The author, who collected the stories, is also a psychotherapist in the Los Angeles area and is supposed to be one of the best in the field.

Format: Paperback
... then this is the book for you. Reaching across every social, psychological and emotional strata imaginable, this collection of essays takes us into the hearts and homes of the 'typical' panic disorder sufferer - of which of course there are none. Each author tells his or her own story in his or her own words, touching such important aspects as when and why the disorder struck, how deeply it affected their lives, how they came to make the tough decisions (such as meds or no meds, therapy or no therapy) that let them reclaim their lives.

I especially enjoyed finding my own story in the most unlikely places, of finding, even after 9 years of relative anxiety-free living, the validation that yes, this WAS real, no, I was NOT making it up, and that the choices I made in my own healing were pertinent and right for me.

This is also a must-read for the partners of people with Panic Disorder. You know, a little 'light' read for those 2am visits to the ER. (Humor - a PD household 'must-have'.) Truthfully, this book will help everyone involved understand and be more fully present for their loved one as they navigate this insidious labyrinth known as Panic Disorder.

I only wish it had been written 10 years ago ....
