Michelle is a warm and inviting person who made me feel comfortable very quickly. She has been a great mentor and helped me overcome many obstacles in the aftermath of a serious life event I experienced. I felt I could be me without any concern for fear of how she may react. I have done traditional therapy but have preferred her holistic approach to combining therapy with a goal oriented approach to solving problems one may be experiencing. I have been able to get to a much better place in my life thanks to her support and the perspective she helps me obtain through self reflection. She encourages you just enough to help you push past your self-set limits without ever feeling like she is pushing you past your boundaries. Somehow, I always get to the realization I need on my own terms but with the help of her encouragement. I love her approach and feel that her respectful manner along with her warm, understanding attitude creates a space for one to really get down to one's core and find one's self in the process. She has truly been a gift to my life.
Stephanie is the universal counselor. I have no doubt she could help anyone with any struggle. My boyfriend and I were dealing with one of the toughest hurdles in a relationship, loss of trust. We were never great at communicating and were not open to therapy at the start. I agreed to try a session with Stephanie. I was NOT disappointed. After one hour with her help, I felt at ease with myself and hope for my relationship. She allows you to work together in the room and reach conclusions on your own and with her help. This was perfect for me, I don't like being talked at. She listens carefully, is patient and supportive. She leaves you with exercises to use at home that strengthened our connection and understanding of each other tenfold. We are very grateful to have found Stephanie Mintz.
As an ordained minister, I have worked with Nancy counseling numerous couples wanting to be married. Her approach is both companionate and professional with an uncanny ability to relate to churched and unchurched persons alike. I wholeheartedly endorse her with no reservation!
I have had 5 hours of individual therapy and I am very happy with my experience so far. I like the way Alik Segal,JD,MA,AMFT, approaches the situations that I am dealing with and I appreciate his honest willingness in wanting to help me with touchy subjects in my life.
Therapy never quite made a difference for me in the past, and believe me I really wanted it to. Samanthas approach is so completely different and more personal then anything I experienced before that it has profoundly impacted my life in a way I always wished therapy would have. Unlike others, she helped me understand my life as a whole - and helped me develop a sense of self-compassion I never before realized would be so instrumental in my self-acceptance and self-growth. I learned to appreciate what it really means to be a growing human-being with Samantha and I learned to step back and see the whole picture of my life instead of just chopped up and seperate events. Some are good at making you think they understand you, but with Samantha one feels it. Best of all, she feels like a friend that really relates and not a detached doctor taking suspicious notes that is always at an arms length. I only wish I had met her sooner.
• I have been to several therapists in the past and am usually very skeptical of life coaching and therapy When I began phone sessions with Grace, she was able to help me discover what was really at the bottom of my concerns and how I viewed the world. She gave me guidance to start me on a journey of self introspection. Grace very quickly helped me feel that the road to self-development and happiness is a rewarding one in which I have a trustworthy ally. She helped me understand my needs for stability, become successful in my home and personal life and I have become a stronger person because of her. I highly recommend Grace.
I highly recommend Pastor Eddie Diaz as a counselor, he counseled me during my marriage also after I lost my husband. He grief counseled me, also with anxiety depression. So I highly recommend him.
Working with Saman for almost 3 years and I have to say that he has blossomed into a great professional. To be honest I was really skeptical if therapy was right for me, seeing as I only met him a year or so into his internship so I wasn't sure if he was able to help me. He is a very patient, compassionate and understanding person who takes this field of work to heart...It's pretty much his calling in life. Fast forward two and a half years later, I've learned ways to cope with my anxiety and have gained the confidence to accomplish my goals in my life.
Dr Starr was very caring. I have never been to therapy before and was quite nervous. Dr Starr made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely be back.
Great therapy sessions and available

Ravid is a complete treasure! I came to know her after reading an incredibly compelling online article she had written. It resonated with some difficulties I had been dealing with in my life. After a couple of emails we began meeting weekly face to face over the internet. Having her guidance and feedback has led me to a place of peace that I had been longing to find for some time. I truly feel fortunate to have known her and highly recommend her as a counselor regardless of what stage of life or love you are in.
'Natara has been my guide to the ultraworld for years. Her caring and open way leads me to discover new and exciting things about myself and others. Her integrity and sense of quiet balance are the gifts which set her apart as a teacher, healer, and shaman in a workshop or large ceremony gathering. I look forward each year to my month-by-month reading, and have traveled to participate in her sound bath therapy and Reiki sessions. I especially recommend her "Shift" workshop which is like an unrolling of one big bounteous medicine bundle for everyone to find something (or everything) to enjoy. Thank you, 'Natara for your unwavering and bright light in this time of great and accelerating change.
I can't express how thankful I am to have met Don / XLr8yourLIFE. I was getting ready to shoot a movie, and the previous trainers I worked with were pretty good, but they didn't exceed my expectations, and I wasn't getting the specific results I needed for the project. I didn't have much time left, but I also didn't want to disappoint my agent/ manager and last but not least, myself. I had be in bikini/ action shape, which means a lot of lean muscle, but not to the point where I look like I'm competing for a competition. Most trainers were pushing me either towards too muscular or not muscular enough. When I found Don, we targeted specific problem areas like my inner thighs, triceps, and gluts. I already had strong abs, so he worked with me to make sure it was cut and sexy, but not intimidating. After a couple weeks, I saw faster and better results than ever. "Better" means he gives you want you need and more. He is very good at gaging your limits, and doesn't let you settle for less than your best. With his fitness & nutrition knowledge, fun personality, and targeted training, he's amazing. I got into incredible shape, and I highly recommend his training for anyone, whether it's general fitness or specific results. I'm looking forward to more sessions. Oh, and my agent loved my results too. :)
I had a hypnotherapy session with Cathy (lasting about 90 minutes). She is very skilled, and has a wonderful, calming energy which left me feeling very relaxed. Good work. I recommend her highly!

We have extensive knowledge and experience dealing with teens, adults, and couples who struggle with addiction, mental illnesses, communication, and family issues.
Are you worried about your child or teenager? Is he or she struggling socially or academically? Does he isolate in his room with the door shut, or cry more than you would expect? Growing up can be tough these days, and some kids and teens need just a little bit of extra guidance to help them through these years. This is where I can help. I have experience working as a school-based counselor as well as with challenging populations such as children with behavioral issues and on the autism spectrum. I use behavioral modification techniques to help your child improve on social skills, academic struggles, anxiety, overcoming bullying, and coping with major changes in the family, including divorce or any other significant loss such as that of a pet. I am a registered marriage and family therapist intern with a master's degree in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University. I may be younger than many of the other therapists you have looked into, but that is exactly the reason why I would be a great choice for your child or adolescent. My age helps me relate to and understand your child, which creates a better counseling environment. I am also fluent in Russian. I am available weekday evenings and weekends.
I offer a safe and non-judgmental space to work on becoming the best version of you by utilizing different modalities of psychotherapy to fit your individual needs.
