Sep 25, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 pm

Join radio host Tim Hollenback via Facebook Live on Wednesday, September 25, at 9:00 PM EST for a conversation with Dr. David Younger, a clinical psychologist based in Austin, Texas. He was diagnosed with FSHD at age four, the same time as his mother and grandmother were also found to have the condition. In a compelling blog post, he shared his personal journey of learning to accept his life with FSHD and moving beyond it to finding well-being and becoming a clinical psychologist.

Today, “​I have a 100% online video-based practice with individuals and couples,” he says. “My two main focuses are relationships and people with chronic health conditions. That said, I also see people dealing with depression, anxiety, stress and life-changes.” We hope you’ll tune in on Facebook Live and join the conversation with Dr. Younger. He’ll be happy to answer your questions about relationships, coping with FSHD, and more. Post questions in the Comments section and we’ll ask them on the air as well. Visit Dr. Younger’s website for more information.
