When my fiancee and I were in search of a pre-marital counselor, we didn't know what to expect. We just knew it was best practice to do pre-marital counseling, so we did. The minute we met with Kim for an intro session, she was a kind, comforting presence that was able to get both me and my partner to easily share - something rare for my partner. Throughout our time working with Kim, she helped us hone in on issues within our relationship while discovering things about ourselves - individually - that we didn't realize were negatively affecting us. What we loved most about Kim was that she didn't just talk us through every problem we were working to solve but provided us with tools that we will be able to use for years to come. In our sessions, Kim provided great counseling with a sincere intention to set our marriage off on a strong foundation of self-awareness and clear communication to build our relationship upon. Thank you, Kim, for all of your guidance and support!

Scientifically grounded. Emotionally intelligent. Shannon helped me get unstuck. Seeing any counselor at all was a big deal for me. I had bad experiences with them in the past. Not only was she able to put me at ease, not only was her advice concrete and useful, she helped me explore my concerns in a way that was as stunning as it was fun. It was more helpful, more quickly, and more enjoyably than any other counseling experience I've ever had.

A terrific health care professional, with unlimited energy and a wide variety of talents.

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.

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.

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

As a full-service college consultant, I specialize in the application process and the requirements for college campuses. I seek to streamline the process for students and their family by organizational help and time line creation, teacher recommendation letter organization, essay guidance, and application assistance to help facilitate a student’s analytical processes as he or she considers what is best for learning interests and campus environments. Formerly a high school classroom teacher, my style is casual, fun and low key. Students know that I am available to them at any time and regularly keep in touch with them via texting and even Facebook. Whether a student is seeking tutoring for an academic subject such as English or history, or needs assistance preparing for the ACT and SAT, I tailor my tutoring to meet the students' individual needs. The fact that my students continue to stay in touch and seek out services after they have gone to college attests to the fact that they know I care about helping them make the most of their education.

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 a counselor. I am certified in school counseling and marriage and family therapy (intern). I enjoy working with children, families, couples and individuals in every situation. I specialize in working with children and other victims of domestic violence. I have experience working with substance abuse issues, depression, anxiety and behavioral issues among others.

About

I founded Be Love Community Counseling to provide safe, healing space for people who have been oppressed, marginalized or have an identity outside of the dominant culture. Historic trauma and past hurts may show up as having challenges in relationships, depression, anxiety, anger management issues, low self-esteem, underachievement, oppositional behaviors, etc. You may think that something is wrong with you while what you're experiencing may actually be a result of something that has happened to you or your ancestors. Therapy is empowering as you may increase awareness about what is keeping you from freedom to live the life you desire. We may meet for a brief period, and you'll learn and practice coping skills, or we can take time needed to focus on the root of the problems and identify the best solutions for you. You may gain deeper knowledge of your true self and what creates joy and ease. I use an "eclectic" approach to personalize counseling to meet the unique needs of the individuals who I serve. This means I use a variety of different treatment modalities including, but are not limited to eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), family systems, solution-focused brief therapy, play, sand tray, expressive arts, spiritual, narrative, mindfulness, psychodynamic and humanistic therapies. Issues that may be addressed in counseling are many, but I focus on growing your strengths and supporting you to live the life that you desire. I don't pretend to have all answers, but I'm honest and will share if I can help.

About

As a private college counselor, I provide college counseling and essay editing services to help aspiring high school students who want to gain admission to the Ivy League, Stanford, MIT, Caltech, UChicago, and other competitive universities. My stellar track record of getting students into the top 6 schools (HYPSMC) in the country speaks for itself, as I help students from all backgrounds tackle the application process. I have helped even under-achieving, subpar students gain admission to one of the top six schools through a rigorous application process that helps the applicant to stand out from his or her peers. I graduated with a degree in economics from Princeton University.
