I came to Vladamire initially to work out my marriage issues and felt an instant connection with her as she was warm, open, and quick in understanding the issues. I think she is more than a marriage counselor, she has been there for me when I was at my lowest point and separating from my husband - she called, texted and went above and beyond what I think other therapists would do. She cares about her clients and not only helps to analyze the issues but focuses on solutions, ways in which we can heal ourselves. I would have never reached the point that I am at now which is a healthier view of my relationships and the most important relationship of all - with myself! I am grateful that I met this amazing woman and hope that others will benefit from her wisdom. I highly recommend Vladamire to those that wish to not only heal themselves of whatever pain they are going through but to discover themselves and their gifts to the world in the process.
After just 1 Session I am astonished how I feel -- FANTASTIC! Craig incorporated his knowledge of Neuroscience/Psychology and the necessary fundamentals of great Public Speakers; with his passion, commitment to me and motivation which made me less anxious and fearful to speak after just finishing our Session. Being afraid all my life of Public Speaking made me very proud of myself. I can't wait to continue working with Craig. Thanks!!!
Tom has shown that he genuinely cares about how, when, and if I progress. He is invested in whether I actually achieve breakthroughs toward my personal success. Considering that my goals are so immense: to metamorphosize an ashamed, unhappy, ineffective, & lonely guy, with limited professional influence, into a proud, happy, effective, socially fulfilled, & profoundly influential version of myself, it would have been easy for him to give up on me. Even though I'm confident many life coaches in his position would have terminated our relationship months ago, dealing with such a high-maintenance client as myself - expressing to him hundreds of suggestions / criticisms / requests, expecting a personalized experience that caters to my individual needs, and offering frequent pessimism or guarded skepticism at best - he has been patient, flexible, & determined to support my progress. It has been several months since Tom started coaching me, and I have consciously delayed writing a review until I might have a sense not just that he cares and won't give up (after all, that's part of the job description), but that he will actually help me transform myself, in ways that countless others haven't. I have worked with therapist after therapist for years & years, undergone treatment with psychiatrists, hired dozens of countless project collaborators and personal assistants, and tried more times than I can remember to count on the support of family and friends in order to help me make the steady progress needed to break out of a deep debilitating personal rut that has lasted for decades. All of the above have been unsuccessful. I naturally wasn't expecting Tom to be any different. But I gave him a shot, deciding that I deserved a chance for renewed hope. I almost gave up on him and on myself, but he didn't give up on either. And finally, after months of 'blood, sweat, and tears,' I have come to believe there is hope at the end of the tunnel. I'm beginning to make steady transformative progress, and I'm looking forward to the journey that lies ahead. Prerequisites for success: I have to be patient, make a few reasonable leaps of faith, and make an investment in my future, emotionally and financially. I also have to be an active participant and be willing to gradually take the reins myself. I finally have to accept his limitations, while recognizing and counting on his strengths. His limitations: Tom is not a miracle worker, and in comparison to others I've worked with, he's not the most charismatic, inspiring, eloquent, forward, original, perceptive, intellectual, tech-savvy, exciting, or assertive. But his STRENGTHS far outweigh these limitations: He is persistent in his efforts. He is determined to be an ally on the road to victory, offering extra support when needed, never conceding defeat. He is compassionate, showing empathy for my experiences & struggles, frustrations and pain, & and my initial often-pessimistic attitude. He is patient, and will put in the time to understand, listen, and reevaluate / regroup when necessary. He is humble and modest, not expecting recognition, praise, notoriety, credit, or gratitude for going above and beyond. He is affordable, & ends up charging far less money than he could for his time, and far less than any of the other life coaches I considered, let alone being a mere fraction of the cost of a therapist or psychiatrist! He is respectful, as a friend would be, but sensitive & honors any boundaries I set. He never speaks down to me. He is honest, and when requested, very candid about what he thinks needs improvement, more, focus, or a shift in perception. He doesnt rub me the wrong way as a salesman might, as though Im a source of income, but always treats me like a person who deserves to achieve his dreams. He is passionate about helping people. He works very hard, often going above and beyond what others would do, putting his clients ahead of his personal life. He is fair, respects agreements, honors his word, readily forgives, and shows lenience. He is creative, willing to try to approach problems from new perspectives and angles. He is open-minded, willing to work with approaches and systems hes unfamiliar with that I know are likely to be effective. He is trusting, and gives me the benefit of the doubt, while also helping me to become more accountable. He is reliable, and I have been able to count on him in ways I couldnt count on therapists, employees, mentors, friends, & family. His system of "open access" helps me throughout the week, and this unique system of coaching has been the key to my success, helping me beat procrastination and not lose sight of my goals. He is flexible, & accommodates limitations, changes, and conflicts with my schedule, deficiencies in my attitude, and treats my perceived failures like learning opportunities to take a new, more promising approach. He is resilient, and puts up with much more than necessary for someone in his position, and never complained once to me about it. Finally, he is kind, complimentary, and friendly. He's like that 'conscience on your shoulder.' I would recommend him to anyone who is considering hiring a life coach, or to anyone who has unfulfilled dreams they know they deserve to and could achieve, but haven't. Thank you, Tom, for your efforts, and quality work :)
What can we say about DiAnna? She is amazing, fantastic, a person with true heart, an amazing minister, and one of the most genuine, caring, and loving people that we have ever met. We were truly blessed to have found her. DiAnna went above and beyond all expectations on every level. She worked with us closely and helped us design a ceremony that was truly us. We also used her for premarital counseling...which helped us feel much more prepared for married life together. (Side note: we also are using her for post marital counseling, and career counseling). As for our ceremony, the only word that we can come up with to describe it is...perfection. It is rare to have a moment in time, especially one that you have dreamed about for so long, to be so perfect, magical and spiritual. There is literally nothing that we would have changed. We will carry our ceremony with us forever. Thank you DiAnna...from the bottom of our hearts. We love you. (Oh, another side note...every one of our guests that we have spoken with about the ceremony told us that it was the most touching ceremony that they have ever had the pleasure of witnessing.)
Vlada is very professional and is very attentive to your needs. The ceremony for my wedding was beautiful. Thank You for making my day special.
Having met Dr. Anna is one of the best things that's ever happened to me. I had been in therapy for over a decade with various counselors, but now I know the difference between a therapist and a Therapist. She is warm, compassionate and creative, no two sessions are the same, and she seems to have an incredible repertoire of techniques at her disposal. She is always goal-oriented, makes sure that results are really happening, and always explains everything so clearly as you have never heard and never understood before. She has the greatest sense of humor, her academic knowledge is amazing, and her fine-tuned sensitivity boarders on the mystical. Yet she is always funny, down to earth, and real. I've never laughed so much in therapy sessions before! :-) I am so grateful, ... because I am finally discovering what "free" and "happy" really mean!
As multiple trauma survivor, I saw my first therapist many moons ago and have experienced multiple treatment modalities and the gamut of personal styles amongst therapists. I could professionally review lots of them! I only say this so you can take my opinion with the utmost assurance that my time with Lindsay was among the most productive, her style was among the most likable, and the issues she tough loved me into facing were core for me as I have experienced. My only regret is our time was so short. I am now excited to be chasing my music career with a passion instead of feeling trapped in undesirable situations and fruitless relationships. Did Lindsay relieve me of all that? No. But she facilitated me doing it for myself. And that's the best therapist there is. Thanks for ya help, Lindsay, I couldn't have done it without ya! The Big Easy's loss is the Big Apple's gain, I know dats right! Peace Through Music ya'll, pianogoddess New Orleans
Dr. Landsmark has saved our family. She first came into our lives when our 13 year old son was just 3. He was beginning to show signs of ADHD and impulse control and was struggling in his progressive preschool setting But, he also showed clear signs of giftedness. Dr. Landsmark administered the Stanford Binet IQ test and gave us feedback that helped us get our son into a more structured school setting with a gifted and talented program, which he soared in. We later came to her when our younger daughter began to experience anxiety which was affecting her in school and social settings and at home. Through family counseling she was able to help our daughter improve and help us as parents understand how to better support her. Dr. Landsmark has a wealth of experience and really gets children and family dynamics that can be helpful or harmful in raising healthy children. She is a "tell it like it is" kind of therapist and doesn't sugar coat the truth. But it's clear that she really cares and strives for success with all of her patients.
I gave a 4 because I want people to take my review seriously. Jim, is on the frontier of something big. The value inherent in these discussions was not only clear to me during our talk, but reinforced after, as everyone I talked to was annoyingly curious about my experience and eager to discover their own "type". The idea of being able to talk to someone about who you are is highly therapeutic, and I think a lot of people need it, there is just a barrier with going to a well-established psychiatrist, possibly being labeled crazy, being charged an arm and a leg, etc. Jim's approach is completely organic and unassuming, like talking with a friend, but your friend is just extremely knowledgeable about people's different personalities, and enjoys helping you map out your personality to create a clear picture of how you can best approach the rest of your life. I think he will be extremely successful once people become more comfortable with the idea of meeting someone to talk about themselves outside of the conventional psychiatrist/therapist visits. Nobody has time for that anyway.
His knowledge and love for helping people feel better. Helping them get into great shape. Trust him 100%, he listens well and offers important information.
Best therapist ever. She is so sharp minded. She is direct but phrases everything in such a kind manner. I got so much out of the meetings I had with her. She showed a great deal of empathy toward me and her comments showed me that she had terrific training and a great deal of experience . I highly recommend her.
I often chose professionals on instinct, and in the case of choosing Sheila my instinct was correct. Her style is soft, while still tackling the tough issues. But what's most important is the fact that she really cares about her clients, and posesses a genuine sense of empathy. I'm very happy to have her as my therapist. Meet with her and see what your instinct tells you.
Dr. Nicki is kind, knowledgeable, and unpretentious; she is a psychiatrist who speaks to me- not above me. From the first time I spoke to her on the phone, I knew that I had finally found a psychiatrist who would give it her all to help me.
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.
