ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

LILLIAN SOMNER, DO
Psychiatrist, Amen Clinics Washington D.C.

Dr. Lillian Somner attended the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, did a rotating internship covering all the specialties and went into private practice specializing in osteopathic manual medicine. She then added medical acupuncture and is board certified in medical acupuncture, psychiatry, and metabolic medicine. She also completed training in psychodynamic psychotherapy at the Philadelphia Psychoanalytic Institute.

Dr. Somner was the Medical Director of Behavioral Health at Twin County Regional Hospital in a rural area of southwestern Virginia. She is acutely aware of the needs of rural communities and has a great deal of experience in the management of many disorders including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, attention deficit disorder, and depression.

Dr. Somner has been in practice since 1990. Her specialty has been in the management of pain utilizing both manual techniques and acupuncture. She incorporates into her thinking an understanding of the body-mind connection and the underlying metabolic problems that may be contributing to the issues.

She has also been trained in the Bredesen Protocol, an approach to stop the decline of Alzheimer’s dementia and its possible reversal. This training dovetails perfectly with Dr. Daniel Amen’s Memory Rescue: BRIGHT MINDS approach to the improvement of cognitive impairment.
