As a serial student, I am on a constant quest for self-improvement and life’s truths. This journey began in college with a Psychology degree but after a traumatic divorce I quickly dispelled traditional forms of therapy when I discovered and experience Brief Solution Therapy. I also am a huge fan of Tony Robbins but in my analysis his techniques where remarkably effective on the conscious level. I knew that personal limiting beliefs from my abused childhood residing in my subconscious were preventing me from being my best self. So my journey continued into NLP which in turn led me to Ericksonian hypnosis. All highly valid and powerful forms of therapy yet something was still missing. Enter Randy and Brainspotting. Isn’t life grand!?! “There are no accidents” as it’s only fitting that I write this review on Thumbtack as this is the site that I somehow happened upon that led me to Randy and this strange brief therapy called Brainspotting. Randy immediately responded to my inquiry stating that “Brainspotting goes deeper than hypnosis” so of course I just had to try it. Without spoiling your personal Brainspotting experience in describing the process let me focus on the results: Profound. After just one session I felt an inner calm and peace that I’ve never before experience. Not only was I free of daily struggles but the impact has not been just inner-world but immediately manifested in my outer-world as well. Life has “flowed” effortlessly with tangible new opportunities that have been transformative. Most importantly my newly discovered better self has dramatically and positively affected the lives of my family and the people I love most. What could be more important? Brainspotting has been life-altering for me as I’m certain it will be for you but lastly and most importantly is Randy himself. The love, empathy and compassion I experienced from Randy guiding me through my personal journey of self-discovery as left me in awe of his humanity.

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.

Pastor Ama Zenya is a true blessing. She brought joy, warmth, love, happiness, and beautiful light to our wedding. We felt so secure with her as our officiant. She provided us with the comfort to be present in every moment of our ceremony and feel all the love and support that was with us to celebrate our union. She met with us several months before our wedding to get to know us, both our individual personalities and our personality as a couple. She understood well what our wishes were and tailored the ceremony perfectly to meet our needs and include family traditions. She was very responsive, patient, gentle and kind with any questions we had. She was also very active in helping with details regarding the ceremony, and was very prompt with the official paperwork, as well as helping us rehearse our vows. There aren't enough words to describe how grateful we are to have had her as our officiant. We would highly recommend Pastor Ama Zenya to other couples looking for an officiant who will work with you to create a beautiful ceremony filled with love and tailored to your relationship.

Dana is truly amazing at what she does. I'm always in awe at the simplicity in which she gets to the heart of the matter. Her coaching style is encouraging, motivating, and uplifting. As my mentor coach she taught me to think outside the box and to listen to my heart whenever my head got in the way. Maybe i can't pinpoint what she does, but all I know is I cope with life and its small shocks better, much better, with greater serenity, strength and a depth of emotional insight that I didn't have before. Whether it's with family members or other relationships, she gave me perspective and space to breathe --which allows me to make better choices in how i respond in different relationships. You can't go wrong with her--no matter what your issue is as far as I'm concerned.

Matthew has been a really great counselor to work with. He brings empathy and excitement to our relationship counseling sessions, and provides much needed insight to moments when we get caught up in our historic relational patterns. Our sessions are a good mix of hard work and play. Matthew always has ideas and exercises we can do to work with the material that arises. He is communicative and professional.

After meeting Rev Gil and Robyn about 10 years ago, I had an intuitive knowing that Rev. Gil was to be my practitioner (spiritual counselor) and began working with him shortly thereafter. It was my first experience of working with a practitioner and, ultimately, the process was a significant contributor in my desire to pursue my own practitioner license. I found Rev. Gil to be an exceptional practitioner. He consistently acknowledged my process and journey while staying anchored in spiritual principle so I could create the shifts I was seeking. He also never hesitated to call me on my stuff, always from a place of love, so I could see how being stuck in my story was not serving me. Overall, I found the process of working with him in this way to be incredibly transformative and fundamental to my subsequent spiritual journey, so much so that I enrolled in the spiritual counselor training program myself the following fall. I worked with both Rev Gil and Robyn during my training and found them both to be wonderful mentors as I continued to explore my spiritual path. I can't recommend their work strongly enough!

I have worked with Don Waxman for almost two years and found him to be the most effective therapist I have used. Don has the ability to be empathetic and directive in a way that works for me. His use of somatic tools with me has be dramatic in my self exploration and healing. He is very knowledgeable and creative and has great set of tools to help you get to your goals.

Within each of us abides the potential to feel good about ourselves, our work and our relationships. Tapping into this potential, accessing it and learning to apply it generously to everyday life can bring us great fulfillment and success in all of these areas. I work with my clients to determine and address the things that hinder their ability to have a lasting and true sense of well being such as stress, depression, low self-esteem, self-defeating patterns, past trauma and toxic relationships. We work together actively on turning these obstacles into new, positive behaviors and self-knowledge.

I like to think that it's because I bring humor to my work. Humor allows us to identify difficulties or challenges apart from ourselves and have more clarity overcoming them.
