Leslie was able to help me with some anxiety issues and get me headed in a better direction in a crisis period of my life.
I was really anxious and miserable because I had to go off my antidepressant medication during my pregnancy. Not only your coaching skills but your complete psychotherapeutic experience helped me learn to manage my stress levels and to prioritize my work schedule to find time for my own self nurture. You gave me many parenting resources and I feel confident and happy as a mother to Rebecca. First I was skeptical about my hability to get thrue this period without medication, but your guidance made all the difference in my daugther's and my own wellbeing. Thank you, your support got me through a very difficult time.
Owl Wise is a fabulous service. Velina is a truly gifted woman. She has helped me physically, mentally, and emotionally with my stress level. She is nurturing, caring , and professional. Such an awesome stress management treatment!
If you want MEASURABLE results, Shannon is the coach for you. When I called her, I was in a terrible depression. Using her measurement, I was at 11%, where 50% represents a normal mood. Since I started working with her, my average mood has risen to 56%, with regular scores above 80%. Now that is something to crow about. Shannon has a really unique perspective on anxiety and depression. She understands what causes us to remain stuck and she has a giant toolbox of remedies to get us moving and feeling better. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Your life will change permanently for the better when you work with her.
I originally came to Michelle for couple's therapy. Although that relationship ultimately didn't work out, I gained many valuable insights and skills that have allowed me to maintain a healthy and deeply fulfilling relationship now. Since then, Michelle's helped me tremendously with issues I have regarding self-identity and worth, as well as career worries. While I continue to face these anxieties, Michelle has listened and talked me through them so that they've become less daunting, if not insightful experiences. Michelle is a wonderful listener, professional, deeply compassionate, and great at pointing out patterns she notices to help you understand yourself better. In times when I felt very troubled, I avoided going to therapy due to the stigma associated with it, but it has benefited me greatly, and I'm no longer afraid to let people know how much it can help, especially when you're in the hands of a pro like Michelle.
I originally began seeing Beth back in 2014 for anger and anxiety issues. While I still have some work to do, my life is exponentially better as a result of working with Beth. I had seen a traditional therapist for years and it helped shed light on things, but did little toward actually helping me solve my problems. Thanks to Beth’s commitment to her clients’ health and happiness, I now know what my true calling in life is and I am working toward it every day. This alone has reduced my anxiety and anger, as I am finally feeling happier and more connected with my true self. Also worth noting is that Beth is not only a gifted healer, she is an incredibly empathetic, non-judgmental, and professional person. As a result, I look forward to every single appointment I have with her. If you are feeling “stuck,” as I did when I originally sought out depth hypnosis, I encourage you to call Beth today. Your happiness is more than worth it and she will do everything in her power to help you achieve your goals, whatever that means for you. “May you be free of suffering, may you be a peace.”
When Anna Cedar, my colleague of two years, told me that she was starting a private practice I got incredibly excited that others will get to experience the funny, thoughtful and warm person that she is. Yes, it goes without saying that she has years of experience as a therapist and that she has knowledge and a deep grasp of both "talk therapy" and evidence based interventions. I got incredibly excited because even more than her knowledge about interventions that help people when coping with stress, concerns about identity, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, trauma (or any combination of the above)--Anna has the intangible skills that help individuals feel really LISTENED to. I feel that therapy is often about goodness of fit--that is--feeling comfortable and safe with your clinician. Anna makes ME feel safe. She has a delft touch with people and she's not afraid to ask hard questions or sit with pain and sadness.
Alexis is a highly skilled therapist who offers empathic and compassionate reflections and insights, as well as helpful tools to manage life's challenges. Highly Recommend.
Nancy is an esteemed and trusted colleague whom I have had the privilege of working with for several years now. Nancy's enthusiasm for the clients she works with is only matched by her experience and preparedness in the therapy room. She shows a consistent care for clients even when she is not "at work". She is hard working, humorous, authentic, and a wonderful option as a therapist whether you are an individual adult, in a couple, or seeking therapy for your child.
I highly recommend Eric, he is a skilled and warm therapist. He brings a lot if acceptance and deep listening to whatever his clients bring and helps them explore their issues in a guided and contained way. He also helps people find their personal strengths, so that they may face difficult situations with more ease and happiness. I trust Eric and his capacity to work with people experiencing depression and anxiety.
It's a serious thing, writing a review for a therapist. This is, after all, a person who will ultimately play an important role in your life, to guide you through difficult times, to help you mend the inevitable damage that life will do, to help you grow and be better... to help you be the best version of yourself. And I don't think I would ever make such a recommendation if I weren't absolutely convinced that Jennifer could help anyone who crossed her path. She has the rare quality of absolute sincerity and is filled with a compassion that is complimented perfectly with education and clear and rational thought. She often has insights or suggestions that will shift your own thinking and perception into something manageable... something that can be improved. I'm not sure a more difficult case than ours could have been laid at her feet, an abused child with disabilities of his own, a high profile family and a lifetimes worth of damage and pain in the package of a nine year old little boy. And not only did she help to guide him through some of the most terrifying times I can imagine, she prepared him for his future, his life after abuse, and prepared him for entering adulthood as a healthy and honorable person no longer a prisoner his past. How anyone could so successfully accomplish such a seemingly impossible task is something I will never understand, but will always be thankful for. What I can do is pay it forward. If you are looking for that hand reaching out to you in the dark, here it is. Take it.
Working with Alex has been such an incredible experience. It has helped me change my life. Before we met, I knew I needed to change my relationship with food and my own self-talk but I didn't know where to being. I felt so overwhelmed, I just had more and more stress and anxiety about it. I had low energy, sleepless nights, a head filled with negative talk, and feelings of shame and guilt. Alex has been incredibly helpful, patient, and extremely supportive. She shared so many valuable ideas, tips, and tools that helped me gain a sense of control - not just over my relationship with food - but also my relationship with myself. She has helped me to realize my true potential and the importance of self-love and how I treat my body. I have more energy, a more positive view on life, and the feeling of not being victim to my food cravings any more. I'm in charge. Alex has helped me pave the road to self-healing and has given me the courage to continue on this journey of self discovery and learning about my body. It is the beginning of a big shift that I feel in my whole life. I couldn't be more thankful!
Jackie is a compassionate and skilled psychotherapist. I would recommend her highly for anyone experiencing anxiety due to a undergoing a transition or relationship difficulty.
Did a 90 program with Ray and his team. The whole process was highly organized and a great lesson on nutrition and my mind. And most important so easy! With a mixture of virtual training and in person. Reached my goal of 17% body fat from 30. Its definitely a service to use. I'm still on and will continue.
Nancy helped my siblings and I support our aging mother who had been suffering for quite some time with deep depression and anxiety. She established a sense of trust with our mom using kindness, genuine deep listening and she helped to normalize some of what our mom was experiencing. Nancy has not only been skillful and kind with our mom but has, when we have asked, met with us as a family to help us better understand what our mom is going through and how we can best support her and take care of ourselves as well. Nancy offered very practical suggestions too, based on her many years of experience working with middle aged and older people and their families. She advocated with medical professionals to bring an effective team together and has helped us hone our communication skills with them and with each other. I highly recommend her for both counseling and consulting how to navigate these territories of older age with consciousness, hope and peace.
Dr. Lopes has been my therapist on and off over the past 5 years. She had helped me overcome my depression and anxiety, and eventually helped me through a very difficult divorce. I can truly say that with Dr. Lopes's help I have been able to turn my life around. I feel blessed to have a friend refer me to her and I do not hesitate to recommend her to others who are struggling and need unconditional support and guidance... She really cares about her clients, no exceptions.
I worked with Dr. Uhlin in a managed care setting for several years and had the opportunity to witness his skills as a clinician firsthand. Dr. Uhlin is compassionate, bright, and cares a great deal about his clients. He is a deep thinker who translates his expertise and wisdom into practical and effective interventions. I highly recommend Dr. Uhlin for anyone seeking psychotherapy. Gregory Devore, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist
Sandra has been my life coach for the past year. She has been a tremendous help in areas of relationship management as well as taking a keen interest in my health and wellness. She is compassionate, caring, and takes interest in my overall happiness. Cannot say enough good things about her.
Deb is a life saver. She has worked with my daughter and I around very difficult adoption and trauma issues. Not only has she created a safe environment for my daughter to disclose her history and anxieties but she has also provided me with exceptional resources, education and support. Her interventions have made a world of difference for us. I'm a therapist and have worked with numerous child therapist. Deb is by far the best!!
Change is not easy! And yet sometimes, the pain of difficult feelings, a challenging situation or a rocky relationship can overwhelm everything else. At such times, you may feel compelled to try something new and to give up exhausted efforts at doing it alone. In counseling, you can find relief from anxious thoughts, painful relationships, and self-defeating behaviors. Therapy offers you the opportunity to heal from your past, better manage your present and develop more adaptive and fulfilling ways of being. In my practice, I see women, men, couples, families and groups of many ages and cultural backgrounds. No two situations are ever exactly alike. At the same time, there are some issues that I work with more than others, and these are listed here: * Trauma * Divorce * Anxiety * Lost Women (please see my website for more information) * Grief or Loss I am a certified practitioner of EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) and expressive arts therapy (EXA). EMDR is a mind-body technique that's used to process disturbing memories (i.e.: traumatic events) that contribute to unexplained fears and self-defeating beliefs and behaviors. EXA is a therapeutic modality that's dedicated to the use of creativity as a vehicle for change. For more information on these techniques and how they work, please feel free to visit my website. You are also welcome to contact me for a free 15-minute consultation.
