Joan, has been professional and knowledgeable and knows what is helpful and she is Using techniques that are pertinent to today’s therapy
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!
I have a long history of positive and productive therapy, a lifelong commitment to holistic healing and personal growth and 14 years of 12 step work. While all of those supports have brought me much insight and a robust tool box for a happy and highly functional life; none has provided entire clarity around and subsequent relief from lifelong patterns and blocks I have never been able to access and therefore heal. I came to Lorraine in a state of relative crisis and in a matter of months, found myself leaping forward, addressing and resolving core issues I have struggled with my whole life. Her down to earth, relatable personality and style combined with her profound intuition and considerable expertise as a therapist and healer have offered me the most rapid and deep healing I have ever experienced. There is, with Lorraine, an energetic exchange that can only be experienced not described. I am infinitely grateful to have been referred to her. Nicole N.
As a counseling practioner, I use discretion when selecting my own therapist and marriage counselor. Tina quickly picks up the pulse of each individual as well as the dynamic between them. Her incisive and insightful comments are offered judiciously. She maintains high standards of integrity viz. HIPAA. Her availability is flexible for working couples. She balances being a caring person and professional. I highly recommend her for couples and individual therapy based on my experience with her in both areas. S.
So far, so good. I have held two sessions with Mr Seitz and especially the second meeting appeared to be quite effective, or at least satisfactory. It is perhaps too soon to assess whether the therapy actually fulfills my expectations in terms of results (defeating insomnia), but I find Mr Seitz' approach professional and promising.
Words can not begin to express how thankful I am that I have found Dr Pace..He has this wonderful ability to make you feel comfortable from the moment you walk thru his door. He puts you at ease and makes you feel as if you are talking with a friend within minutes. He is able to make you think outside the box and see things from another perspective. I have seen therapist in the past but have never felt as good about my therapy as I do with Dr Pace.
I have been a patient of Sheri's for the past decade, attending regular sessions as well as a group therapy program. In that time, my therapy with Sheri has given me the tools I need not to just survive, but to thrive. She is empathetic, kind, intelligent and competent - an all around exceptional therapist. She has been in the trenches for many years, working with people who have faced the worst of circumstances, and she bears our suffering admirably and in the process diminishes the potency of those experiences. Sheri also empowers us to help ourselves, frequently recommending books, movies, healers, and the like. To those out there in need of help, I hope you, too, find your way to Sheri.
Dan Minuchin is an outstanding family therapist, mental health consultant, trainer, teacher and clinical supervisor. I have had the fortune of working with him and observing him in all of these roles over the past several years. I initially worked with Dan about 10 years ago when I was a supervisor at agency that provided family therapy and services to families struggling with adolescents and families involved in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems. In this setting, he provided case consultation, supervision, and training to a team of social workers and family therapists. This model included live supervision and the use of a one way mirror. Dan would also accompany therapists on home visits to provide live consultations in the family's home. I later became a director of another similar family service program. I was able to hire Dan to provide Structural Family Therapy training to my entire clinical staff, as well as consultation, individual and group clinical supervision. His guidance and training was very well received by my staff and their skills as family therapists improved significantly. Dan is really a master trainer and has worked as a family therapist, teacher and trainer for several decades. He has an incredibly diverse personal and professional background and experience working with families of all walks of life. He is sensitive and well informed of the needs and experiences of families of color, immigrant families, LGBTQ families, blended families, Jewish Orthodox families, families struggling with substance abuse and mental illness, delinquent teens, children with special needs, and families dealing with divorce, loss and separation. I have referred many families to Dan and I feel confident that he is able to work with the most complex families of all backgrounds. Dan is thoughtful and empathic and has very high ethical standards. His structural and strategic approach to addressing problems is highly effective and families often will see progress in a short amount of time. I am a family therapist and clinician as well, and Dan has provided me with outstanding clinical supervision and guidance and has been instrumental in my own professional growth as a therapist and clinical supervisor.
At a time in my life when nothing but devastation was facing me, I made a chance call to Ed. Explaining the circumstances of my problem and needing a very quick first step to resolution, Ed not only assisted in providing the information needed to take the steps necessary to start recovery but he was there for each and every step that was taken from that moment on. Ed's method of "Whole-istic" therapy provided a solution that was healing, long lasting and complete. He is a person who has my total trust and I know will support me in my journey to recover. His methodology of therapy is to simply heal. I could not ask for anything better.
I've been struggling with anxiety and anger issues since teenage years, and have tried therapy in the past but never stuck with it because I always found myself getting impatient with the therapists or the process. However, Dr Eskalyo slowly but efficiently helps me realize the benefits of psychotherapy, by digging deeper into my subconscious mind. She never makes me feel judged, or pressured. Scheduling is flexible, which works with my crazy work schedule. She's also very cooperative and patient with paperworks for my insurance. I highly recommend Dr Eskalyo, especially for those who are skeptical but would like to try therapy.
Frank is very easy to talk to. Felt like we clicked right away. Highly recommend Frank for couples counseling
My Emotional Healing-sessions with Dr. Fischer were more than revealing and highly rewarding! She navigated me through exercises, which exposed me in a gentle but straight way to my own self, including things I felt, but didn't want to feel, things I felt, but had pushed away, and things I knew, but didn't have the courage to encounter. - It is a masterpiece of therapy, if you can create this environment of trust and safety to your client in a short amount of time as she created it for me in order to help the client to open up to go "All The Way". Dr. Fischer has that talent. I felt truly safe with her and venture to say that I experienced great progress after my sessions with her. If you're going through a hard time, if you are wondering, why all these things are happening to you at this moment in your life, if you feel overwhelmed, hopeless, fatigued, burned-out, depressed or out-of-proportion-angry, if you need some guidance to understand yourself better in a psychological and in a spiritual way, I think, you will greatly profit from Emotional Healing-sessions with Dr. Fischer. I recommend her services highly.
I've been working with Abe for over a year and from the first session he's proven invaluable in helping me understand and work through many issues. His combination of breathwork and bodywork (similar to yoga but much less movement and for shorter periods of time) plus emotional understanding and connectivity results in a supercharged therapy session that leaves one feeling invigorated and confident. Abe has been a true partner in my journey to better self awareness.
Many people seek therapy to improve the quality of their experiences. Whether you are looking to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, increase communication with a partner or loved one or develop successful strategies to focus on healing, the right therapist can provide the necessary tools for building strong relationships. My style of treatment is guided by the philosophy that people are the architects of their own happiness. Together, we can break down false belief systems and design a world focused on fulfillment. My specialties revolve around marriage and family therapy, including relationship issues and sex therapy, for which I have received professional training to provide counseling for sexual dysfunctions. Additionally, my experience in life coaching includes working as a counselor in higher education, creating strategies for success through goal setting, encouragement, and accountability.
I believe it's the Nonviolent Communication approach that sets me apart. Using this approach I am able to focus on what is the heart of what people are wanting to work on and I am able to give them tools to do this more effectively with themselves and others.
