Meet Dr. Jo Eckler:

I’ve spent a lot of my life feeling invisible….being non-binary, bisexual, pagan, queer, and chronically ill can definitely do that. At age 15, my knee swelled up like a balloon. That was the start of my life with chronic illness.

For the past 27 years, I’ve collected diagnoses like some people collect Pokemon: fibromyalgia, spondylolisthesis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, bile acid malabsorption, antibiotic-induced autonomic neuropathy, Reynaud’s syndrome, non-diabetic peripheral neuropathy, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia, and hidradenitis suppurativa.

I also collected degrees, the last one being a doctorate in clinical psychology. I’ve worked as a psychologist in hospitals and nursing homes. I’m trained as a death & mourning doula as well as a hospice volunteer. I’m a registered yoga teacher. I’ve been a therapist to dozens of people living with injuries and diseases.

And I did all that while secretly and miserably dealing with pain, fatigue, and other symptoms.
I know the desire to be recognized as sick and struggling. I know that in the next second we can want no one to know and to be treated like we’re healthy.

And I also know that even the best physician sends us out the door with little more than prescriptions, a follow-up appointment, and maybe some home remedy advice or orders for more tests. They simply don’t have the time or the training to give us the tools we need to live as well as we can while being as sick as we are.

That’s why I started offering coaching and online programs. And that’s why I wrote the book I Can’t Fix You—Because You’re Not Broken: The Eight Keys to Freeing Yourself From Painful Thoughts and Feelings. I’ve been lucky that my training as a psychologist also helped me find the tools I needed to live more, live better. And I want you to have these tools too.  – Dr. Jo
