“I feel as if I could do things in life I didn’t think was possible before. I now have goals and dreams instead of just trying to hide and survive through the day. My relationships with my husband and my kids, and especially myself, are amazing now.”
~ A Woman trying to find herself
“Therapy has made him more relaxed, motivated to do the ‘right thing’ and think before he makes decisions. As a parent, I believe what benefits my child, benefits me.”
~ A Little Boy Learning Not to Act Out Anymore
“I love walking into your office––the soothing sounds and peaceful decor is inviting and the candles in your office are like nirvana for me.
~ A Young Woman Learning To Relax and Let Go
“My 8-year-old son ‘opened up’. I didn’t realize that he had so much pent up anger. The therapist was able to connect with him instantly and I have seen a positive change in his behavior from his very first session.”
“Now, when he gets angry he uses this tool implemented by his therapist to assist him with relaxation and to calm down. She calls it ‘Mr. Crazy Face’ which I think is very kid-oriented. I love the way she is able to pull things out of him and get him to work when he doesn’t even realize he’s doing the work himself. She makes it so fun and stress free.”
~ An 8 Year Old Boy Letting Go Of His Anger
“Thank you for the great experience.”
~ A Man Learning About Himself
“The one most important thing I re-learned is to accept myself faults and all, and not be superwoman––spread some of that joy around! What I appreciate most is the rapport that we share––it doesn’t feel ‘clinical’. We have a human relationship where we exchange thoughts, ideas, etc.”
~ A “Superwoman” Learning to be More “Human”
“I had two other therapists before seeing her, besides perhaps a dozen in group settings. The biggest difference I’ve seen is consistency. I’ve never gone into session wondering “how is she going to show up today?” like I have with other therapists. And she is honest––she really calls me on my ‘stuff’. She has great follow-through and persistence. She doesn’t drop issues when the going gets tough. I have come to appreciate that she is really willing to get into the trenches with me when I’m in a dark place, feeling overwhelmed, hopeless or full of rage. She is the voice of reason when I feel out of control. I have seen first-hand in groups the depths of her insight and ability to de-escalate volatile situations.”
~ Finding a Therapist That Helps with Rage and Hopelessness
“I wanted to give you an update on how I’ve been sleeping since our first session. Immediately I noticed a huge change. I was taking a lot less medication to fall asleep and I was waking up refreshed and rested. I wasn’t falling asleep at my desk anymore. Thanks so much for your help.”
~Finally sleeping after years of insomnia
