I highly recommend Randy with his effective treatment and his comfortable, welcoming environment. I started seeing Randy at my doctor's recommendation for depression. I had never been to a therapist before and growing up in the conservative midwest where the idea of therapy is for weak and/or crazy people and you're just supposed to "tough up and deal with it", I had no idea what to expect. In just a few sessions, I feel completely and totally like a new person. I've realized that I have been mildly depressed for about 15 years now, and just thought it was "normal" to feel that way. The brainspotting technique Randy uses seems so simple, but has been extremely effective on me. With brainspotting, I focus my eyes on a spot that increases the intensity of the physical discomfort of my negative emotions, and I let out whatever comes out. I'm still floored by the past experiences that I've discovered this way and how they've shaped the way my thought patterns are today. It's a unique feeling of release, and I usually leave sessions with a goofy smile on my face, feeling a little like, "what just happened?" Randy's services have been a life-changer for me, and I can't thank him enough for the vast improvement in my quality of life.

He was genuine and didn't rush us. He used the paperwork that we submitted when we arrived to lead the conversation. My husband and I are working toward a better relationship yet it was good to talk with Paul as a mediator, and he helped start the conversation that we can continue as a couple. If needed, we'd hire Paul again without hestitation.

Verified review

Dr. Russo helped me get to the heart of my issues quickly and supportively. I've dealt with depression off and on over many years and she's been my choice every time for support and counsel, guidance and wisdom. Often, Dr. Russo would recommend titles of useful books and/or authors that I've since added to my library. They've proven time and again to be great resources helping me deal with the process of healing and wellness. I'm eternally grateful for working with Dr. Russo and will forever value the skills she helped me develop.

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.

About

I am a licensed marriage family therapist who specializes in hypnotic approaches to change. This may or may not include formal hypnosis. I work with couples, families and adults over the age of 12. I do collaborative work, helping you achieve your aims and desires for yourself and helping you grow new ways of doing things, so that you can achieve them. Sliding scale is discussed and accepted. I am helping you to awaken that wisdom and direction which is your birthright, so that you can be free of encumbering thoughts, behaviors and relationships.

About

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.

About

I am collaborative, and I care deeply about my clients. I am creative, and I am first and foremost interested in offering relief. Well-being is something I believe should be available today, not ten years down the line. My clients have told me that while they appreciate my deep empathy, they also value my analytical ability to help them make connections and offer fresh perspectives. They have expressed relief at finding our sessions filled with humor and a light, gentle inquisitive approach. I offer individual, couples and family sessions. I also facilitate a chronic pain session to a well-being group. I excel at helping people through transitions and teaching couples how to nurture, heal, and/or add a sense of vitality and expansiveness to their relationships.

About

One of the reasons why it's so convenient to see me for counseling is the flexibility that Heidi F Yoder, mft Life Skills Stylist allows you. This is delivered in two ways: * Accessibility - did you find that you'll be out of town during your appointment? We can use Skype or use other forms of online therapy. Studies have shown online therapy to be just as, and sometimes more, effective than in-person therapy. Working with teens or those struggling with depression, getting outside and doing eco-therapy can be a good idea. Studies have shown that information taken in under the influence of endorphins (caused by both exercise and nature) is learned more deeply, like the difference between hearing something, writing something, and repeating something back. * Diversification - types of services offered. An individual may be seeing me for skill development work that initiates a fulfillment career change. Later, that same individual may bring his partner in for some work on communication theory to help resolve some of their core issues. During this work, some material about their child may come up, and it becomes obvious that later, a few laser-focus CBT sessions would greatly benefit the teen's patterns of thinking around managing expectations and organization, in a way that brings her/him positive outcomes.
