Dr. Kevin Kappler, Ph.D Amputee Life Coach


As a fellow amputee, I know the psychological difficulties people face after losing a limb. I have helped people on the phone and texting for the last ten years as a Life Coach with these specific issues. I understand what you are up against when you realize you have lost a limb. Prior to that, I was a clinical psychologist for over thirty years specializing in treating panic disorders and post-traumatic stress. My post-doctoral work was at the VA in San Francisco with vets coming back with lost limbs and traumatic body images. 

We will talk about the problems you are facing in your recovery from your amputation. By the end of the conversation, you will know what I can provide and if it will help you. My services are simple and direct. When you feel the need to deal with your feelings recovering from your amputation and getting back on your feet you can call me, text or email me. Before you contact me you will need to pay for the session on PayPal the fee we have mutually agreed upon. I am available at any reasonable time. That way your able to get help when you need it when your feelings and emotions are troubling you the most. I have found this to be much better than you having to wait till an appointment a week or more away from when you need help the most. In the words of a recent amputee suffering from panic attacks,” The thing with anxiety, depression, or any other mental illness, is that it doesn’t discriminate. Anyone can be affected by it. It’s finding ways to cope with it that makes you a stronger person. For me, I hated the medication that my doctors had prescribed me. They made me feel like a zombie, a shell of a person.” I can offer just such a way to cope.
