Kylie is the real deal. I did not expect what I got from my healing sessions with her. She was able to tell me about my relationship with my mom and how (and why) it has been affecting me, pulling me down. My depression leading to my backache. It all makes sense. And mind you - there is no way she could have known all this. I did not even tell her this. While she was healing I could feel something moving inside me - and she did not even touch me. Within three sessions I can feel the difference. I just feel so very happy to have met her.
Shannon has a rare gift as a counselor as she is able to combine good practical advice with an empathic, sensitive presence. She combines a scientific and intuitive approach in her work. Her use of metrics to provide demonstrable results provides an experimental and empirical grounding to counseling that is rarely found in the field. She has a knowledge of the lifestyle factors that lead to anxiety and depression such as diet and sleep as well as the ability to use techniques such as Internal Family Systems to work with parts of the psyche. I chose to work with Shannon at a difficult time in my life because I felt that her compassion combined with her intuitive skills would be able to help me and help me quickly. I am a therapist myself and I am very choosy in who I work with. I have also referred people to Shannon for that reason. I would definitely recommend her services.
Adam is everything you want in a meditation coach. He is a warm, generous spirit. He is funny (hysterical really). He is impressively smart and knowledgeable. It is obvious when working with him or simply talking to him that he was studied diligently, put in years of hard word, learning about and practicing various contemplative traditions. He has lived in monasteries for years, and brings this background to his work. He will impress you in this way. However, it is his humility that you will feel when your session is over. As Maya Angelou said, "...people will never forget how you made them feel." Adam makes you feel welcomed, supported and inspired. I am grateful for his assistance in helping me establish a meditation practice (no small feat). But I am more grateful for our sessions together and the wisdom he's brought to my life. There are more pockets of peace and calm in my life, more places of dignity, less anxiety - little by little, more happiness.
Andri really does give the word 'therapy' a whole new meaning. She creates a safe environment whereby issues are addressed to their core. She has a fantastic ability to identify with her clients issues and guides them to release and resolve anything that might trouble them. She is highly recommended and is considered by my self a 'new age' therapist that finds new and innovative ways to help in accordance with the core problem and circumstances of each person. 5 STAR
Diana is an incredibly warm, empathic, playful, and nonjudgmental therapist. She really accepts you as you are and whole heartedly wants to make changes with you. I am always impressed by her ability to make sense of things and reflect it back to me in an alternative way. She has opened my eyes to so many patterns and defenses I have, and has done it in a way that felt kind and safe. I would really recommend her to anyone I know.
Having Tinnitus for many years and after spending thousands of $ on Dr. visits and medication. Tinnitus Medic has help me immensely. The diet and therapy part helps in all my health and hearing. It was very professional and affordable did all on the internet, too.
Tony was great for me, first, hes an amiable guy that from our initial meeting, I could tell, was sincere about his desire to provide effective therapy. Im a long distance runner and a business executive (and a CMT myself) and he knew exactly what to do to relieve stress and provide recovery from athletic activity. I happy I have finally found my regular therapist now. He even included indigenous techniques from his familys heritage of healers from Mexico I recommend him to you!
A great experience. We recommend Krista to anyone who's looking for Marriage and Family Therapy services.
My approach is based on creating a collaborative relationship to help you illuminate unconscious barriers that keep you feeling stuck or unsatisfied in life. I work from a depth perspective, which means I aim to help you address your therapeutic needs from the roots of your issues.
Anna is a clinician of unsurpassed compassion, wisdom, insight and genuine brilliance. She brings a tenderness and rich warmth to her practice, coupled with great skill and a passion to truly help the people with whom she works. She is informed by a social justice lens, grounded in constantly educating and doing the work herself, so that she can show up for her clients with highly developed cultural responsiveness without defensiveness. She is especially brilliant at working with folks in the LGBTQI community, sex workers, kinky folks, polyamorous folks and survivors of sexual violence.
He is very communicative and understanding about scheduling. Goes above and beyond, and is flexible.
One of the best facials I have ever had. The sound therapy is unique. Highly recommended!
Diana is the smartest, most insightful person I have ever met. She changed my life for the better and I highly recommend working with her. She never makes you feel like you are another person that she's collecting a check from. She really cares. See Diana if you are seeking some therapy. She is a great resource and I am sure she could help many different kinds of people.
I use EMDR, hypnosis, talk therapy, mindfulness, etc. I was trained as an engineer, which has led me to be very curious about what works in therapy. I'm down-to-earth and practical.
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.
Besides being a licensed marriage and family therapist, I have experience in diverse areas of mental wellness that include traditional and non-traditional forms of healing. My approach is holistic. I primarily work with evidenced-based practices. I utilize psychic energy to facilitate desired change.
I provide counseling for individuals, couples and families who are struggling with transitions. You can explore developmental stages and dynamic techniques with a seasoned therapist of 20 years. This includes stress reduction, communication styles, family of origin and life cycle techniques.
I have worked with individuals dealing with stress, anxiety, self-harm, self-esteem, depression, loss, trauma, bullying and relationship problems. My approach is to provide empathy, offer support and guidance to strengthen your skills and abilities. I use different elements from different styles of psychotherapy and tailor my treatment according to each person's needs.
Embodied Art Therapy is, for Jordana, the practice of integrating visual arts, somatic experiencing and storytelling, dance, and movement to reconnect people with their own felt bodies, increase mindful awareness and equanimity and thus, foster human growth, development, and healing. It is about reclaiming our innate capacity as human beings for creative expression of our individual and collective human experience in artistic form. It is also about experiencing the natural capacity of creative expression and creative community for healing. Through creative expression and the tapping of the imagination, clients examine their body, feelings, emotions, and thought processes. Therapy is tailored to each person's unique needs, moving freely between drawing and painting, dancing, music, storytelling, and energetic and hands-on somatic work. Multiple forms of expression aid with deeper exploration. Jordana also draws on her training and licensing as a Reiki master and a bodyworker when situationally appropriate. Embody your art, and embody your voice.
I practice relational depth therapy from a warm and engaged stance. I will help you make changes in your life by understanding your recurrent patterns and why they no longer work for you. Change is not just about finding new options; it is about feeling the power you have to reshape your life. I express fierce empathy and understanding in our work together while simultaneously challenging you to action. Together, we will find your confidence and excitement to follow your desires and enjoy a fulfilling life.
Psychotherapy is good for awakening joy and freedom. Your life issues are doorways to this awakening. My work is spiritually focused and body-oriented. I am a marriage and family therapist, as well as a somatic experiencing practitioner.
