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 doesn’t rub me the wrong way as a salesman might, as though I’m 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 he’s 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 couldn’t 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 :)

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.

Working with Dee for the past 7 months has completely changed my life for the better. From my first phone consultation with her, I felt an overwhelming sense of positivity for my future. After struggling with infertility for 4 years, I had tried a number of therapists, support groups, and psychiatrists to help me cope. Nothing changed the sadness and hopelessness I was plagued with everyday. Infertility caused me to feel like I had no control of my circumstances. Dee taught me that I AM in control of my thoughts and how powerful that can be. I’ve never felt judged when sharing my feelings because Dee just gets it! She’s been there and can relate to all of the complicated feelings that go along with this journey. My relationship with my husband, family, friends and most importantly myself have become stronger because of what I’ve learned from Dee. She is the most genuine, positive light and it’s contagious. After every session, I leave feeling like a new person. She also records sessions and sends them to you so you can re-listen for a positive pick me up. I never leave reviews, but feel compelled to get the word out to help others get up from that lowest point I was once at. Call Dee and you’ll understand. 🌟

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.

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.
