Sheri has changed my life. She has helped me to see things from a different perspective and to heal traumatic family wounds. Most importantly, she has helped me to forge a new path forward. A path filled with hope, confidence, strength and compassion.
I have had considerable experience with therapists throughout my life. Not 1 has ever reached me the way Eliot has. His insight is remarkable. You would think combining psycho-therapy and diabetes coaching/therapy is NOT a novel idea but yet, I have found no one else that provides this type of therapy. I travel almost an hour each way weekly to meet with Eliot. I have recommended him to my friends who dont have diabetes. He is that good. ?
I am providing this review as a clinical psychologist/psychotherapist and colleague of Lee's. In the several years that I have known Lee I continually see her depth of character, intelligence, empathy and compassion. She applies all of this to her work as a Life and Relationship Coach and ADD/ADHD Coach. Well trained and serious in her approach to her work with her clients, she helps people understand where they are stuck, identify their own personal goals, organize and motivate their efforts to get their life moving towards becoming more gratified and happy. These are not easy things to accomplish but Lee's astuteness as a listener, her patience and respect of people's vulnerabilities, her non-judgmental approach and her compassion all coalesce to make her an excellent coach. Lee is an asset to the field of coaching and a person of integrity, compassion and well-honed professional skills that I can recommend whole-heartedly. Susan Davis, Ph.D. Psychologist
Jesse is an incredible officiant. Beyond his "officiant" duties of performing meaningful ceremonies for couples, he also offers pre-marriage counseling. His counseling sessions are incredible and never awkward. Jesse becomes a member of the family and friend circle beyond the wedding day, and someone you can call a friend. From a professional perspective, he's always in time, always available to answer a question, and point you in the right direction if he's unable to help. It's superb that he communicates well and in a timely fashion (something sadly many people in this industry lack.)
I highly recommend working with Stefan Deutsch. Fortunately for me, I met him at a most critical time of my life. I was full of stress, anxiety, and had depressive episodes. I tried other therapies, but they only helped a little. The essence of his work is understanding the science behind loving behaviors and how to give it and get it unconditionally - as it is as vital to life as are air, food and water. I knew that, however, no one explained how to use this idea before. I have worked with Stefan on and off for about 4 years. During that time, I learned to love myself and communicate better with others. I also learned what is loving and unloving behavior and to recognize them in unhealthy relationships in order to take care of myself. His tools for coping with pain have helped me "tame the hurtful dragon" within me. I had many blind spots in my private and professional life as a successful entrepreneur, and never realized them. However, the hours I spent with Stefan helped transform me into a person capable of loving myself and attracting more positive people into my life. It was breaking my old negative patterns both with my company and my relationships by staying out of the past. Now I understand how to make myself happier and be more involved in a positive, enriching life. I found Stefan's work is more productive and transformational because it is more about feelings and less about thinking and being in my head. I highly recommend anyone to work with Stefan if you want to gain awareness of oneself and attain and maintain a happy, balanced life. Nancy Entrepreneur, Long Island

I am writing as a colleague of Dr. Eileen Wachter. I am a seasoned psychotherapist and have shared a number of cases with Dr. Wachter where she provided psychopharmacological and medical management. Dr. Wachter, is exceptionally well trained and keenly knowledgeable and current about psychotropic medications, and very dependable about medication choices and potential contraindications. She performs a very thorough evaluation of each patient she sees and is thoughtful, careful and cautious about administrating appropriate medications. When in doubt, she seeks consultation with colleagues she most respects. If the medication is not providing adequate relief to her patient, she is persistent and unrelenting in finding a regime that will work better. She is an outstanding diagnostician and clinician who is dutiful and professional in all she does, and a wonderful collaborator who is interested and involved in all aspects of patient care. Dr. Wachter is a highly skilled and effective psychotherapist, as well. Again she has been trained by many of the best experts in the field. Together with her solid training and knowledge, Dr Wachter brings her innate talents of insightfulness, perceptiveness, empathy and caring into her psychotherapeudic work with patients. Those who seek treatment with her, find her to be very trustworthy, wise, compassionate,dependable and very helpful. Most importantly, you will not find a Psychiatrist who is more dedicated and generous with her time and knowledge, than Dr. Wachter. She is open to, and sometimes insistent upon her patients remaining in contact with her between sessions, if necessary, so that she can monitor progress and distress most closely. I have been a psychotherapist for 30+ years and worked with numerous Psychiatrists, but NONE have shown the level of involvement, commitment and caring that Dr. Wachter displays with her patients. She is not only generous with her time regarding her patients, but also with the professionals she works with. In summary, with Dr. Wachter you get an enormously well trained, smart, knowledgeable, insightful, empathic, non-judgemental, flexible, highly competent, but above all else, exceptionally caring professional.

I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker with specialized training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Couple's Counseling (with a focus on conflict resolution and rediscovering intimacy), and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from The College of New Rochelle (2001) and a master's degree in social work from Fordham University (2005). My experience in the mental health field includes hospital-based inpatient and outpatient psychiatry, community-based case management, forensic psychotherapy, residential treatment and various supervisory roles. As a practicing psychotherapist for many years, I help empower my clients to identify and correct aspects of their lives which are maladaptive, thereby helping them to live more satisfying, effective lives. Through the therapeutic alliance, I tailor my theoretical approach to fit each client's individual needs and goals. I admire those who have the courage to dive headfirst into the therapeutic process because it can be a scary one. Exploring the many facets of one's personality is challenging, albeit a necessary process in order to live a meaningful life. We all have the ability to change problematic behaviors, self-defeating thoughts, and unhealthy patterns of functioning. I, too, continue working on my personal growth and development, and can identify with the challenges that may ensue. I congratulate you for embarking on this journey of self-exploration, and am privileged to join you on your quest for peace, happiness and serenity.
I provide counseling services such as: * marriage counseling services * sexual abuse counseling * sexual therapy * emotional disorders * individual, couple and group therapy

Far too many coaches have little or no psychological/spiritual insight or experience. At the same time, far too few therapists know how to really help folks effect REAL CHANGE in their lives. Honestly, most schools that claim to teach "psychotherapy" are still largely based on the psychodynamic model which stems from Freud's paradigm that insight = change. Usually this is WRONG. And it's so so sad that so many people are literally stuck in so-called therapeutic relationships that are primarily therapeutic for the provider's cash flow and little else. Why? Because they don't know what's out there and the mental health profession generally will, unwittingly, lead them astray. Change involves far less to do with "why" questions (or focus on the past) and far more to do with "what" is happening NOW and HOW can we make that different, better... That's why finding a life coach who is also a licensed psychotherapist and can guide and direct as well as help you to "process" is so important. I'm far from the only one doing this, so choose carefully but be courageous: change is possible. If you're willing to do the work. With love, David

I am a psychotherapist alleviating a wide field of issues and specializing in the treatment of eating disorders, including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating/compulsive overeating, and obesity, as well as co-occurring obsession, physical ailments and mood disorders. I help clients gain discernment while practicing healthier behaviors to participate in life, decrease isolation, build relationships and cope with feelings I appreciate the role long-standing eating-disordered instructions play in the lives of my clients and their families. I offer a warm, supportive, and confidential place where clients learn to broaden their lives beyond self-destructive patterns that abuse their bodies and hinder relationships. I help clients cultivate a sense of hope, connection, purpose, and inner well-being: a feeling that they'll be taken care of and things will be okay no matter what. I treat all ages, families, and couples, and often help form a treatment team: nutritionists, dentists, psychiatrists, acupuncturists, and integrative medicine practitioners. I am also versed in working with clients in 12-step programs. I completed post-masters training in the integrable treatment of eating sickness at the Bulimia in New York City and Center for the Study of Anorexia.

I am a psychologist with expertise in psychotherapy and neuropsychological assessment. I treat people with anxiety disorders, phobias, mood disorders including depression and bipolar disorder, stress, PTSD, relationship problems, and career indecision.
My background and credentials include the following: Psychotherapy - Masters from Columbia University Life Coaching - Certified at New York University Business Coaching - New York University Sedona Method Coaching - Certified Coach Seminar Leader/Workshop Leader Practitioner - International Institute for Spiritual Living If you have an issue that is limiting you, slowing you down or keeping from feeling happy and secure, then call my office, so that we can work on it together. I have studied both eastern and western philosophies and techniques that can help people improve their lives. I have traveled across the globe to meet with many of the world's most renowned teachers, swamis, avatars and healers and have integrated their varied processes and techniques into my own system. My services teach you easy-to-apply methods of letting go of unwanted fears, worries, negative habits and self-defeating behaviors that we get caught up in. I help clients free themselves from habitual thoughts, emotions and actions that bring them suffering and disappointment. When we eliminate feelings, thoughts, beliefs and core conditioning of lack and limitation, what remains is our unlimited selves. My clients began to identify their values and life goals and focus their energy and mind toward having what they desire instead of living in the state of want, lack and limitation. My methods teach the "how to" direct the mind in positive directions to begin and live the life you truly desire.
