Psychotherapy Testimonials

Dear Andrea,
I am so thrilled at how much my life has changed as the result of the psychotherapy with you, I don't know where to begin.

I was constantly filled with rage, and I didn't know why. I had the most abusive bosses who exploited my hard work, and then blocked my attempts to advance my career outside of their departments. My marriage, which had started off being fun, turned into my financially supporting my husband who wanted to be a perennial student. I came from a very close family, but ended up being designated as the caregiver to all, with little interest in my well-being. The list goes on…

Well, it's a new life. Every problem reversed itself, and then some. My career is soaring. I started setting boundaries with family members, and I am now both loved and respected. I ended up divorcing my husband, and started caring about me. The health problems which manifested every autumn disappeared completely. I ended friendships with women whom I thought were my friends, but later discovered were superficial and only around for the good times.

It’s a different life. I am proud to be me. You taught me to love myself. Over the time we spent in psychotherapy, I learned that the negative patterns I was experiencing as an adult had their source in childhood. The reason I was so angry all the time was because I had blocked out unhappy memories of experiences which continued to haunt me on a subconscious level.   

You were kind, supportive, and amazingly accurate in identifying exactly what I needed to work on and resolve. We covered a great deal in each session. What I found particularly helpful was The Healing Dialogue which allowed me to surface buried memories, and release what was troubling me.

I can only say Thank You for how you guided me to transform my life. In a relatively short period of time, I became empowered to create a life that is truly wonderful. I am so happy that I had the opportunity to work with you as my psychotherapy practitioner . Thank You!

Dear Andrea,
Finding you was a real blessing. I came to you because my health was deteriorating. I felt emotionally weak, and I didn’t know why. I am a very kind person, but I was being drained by my husband, children, and friends. I was a real appeaser, making sure everyone but myself was happy. And all I wanted was to be loved. 

You were so patient and kind. What I valued most in the work with you was the practical tools you offered to help me discover who I am.  You had amazing strategies to help me become emotionally and physically stronger. Because my health was deteriorating, I was very motivated to try everything you suggested… and it worked! Within 6 months, I truly transformed.

What changed? I started to take care of me. I made my well-being a priority. I started to exercise, eat well, and take time for relaxation. What was more difficult was letting go living through my children, and building a meaningful life for me. As a result of our work together, I made the decision to start my own business which is deeply satisfying.

Part of the huge shift was making the decision to assert my truth. My husband is domineering by nature, and I had fallen into a pattern of being agreeable, just to keep the peace. You guided me to realize that my energy level was diminishing because I had stopped being my strong self in order to survive. With your support and guidance, I had a number of life-changing conversations with my husband. I am happy to say that my marriage is now one of equality and mutual respect. My energy is soaring, and I feel great. I can’t believe there have been so many changes in such a short time period. Thank You, Andrea.

Dear Andrea,
I came to you about a month before the split up from my partner of 6 years. I knew something was wrong in the relationship, but I didn’t know what it was. What I was finding was that I was doing more and more to keep my partner happy, and she was doing less and less. It didn’t feel good, but I was deeply in love.

Very quickly, you pointed out that I had a pattern of giving love to get love, but my love was not being reciprocated. I had forgotten that the dynamics of my present relationship were almost identical to my previous one.

Through reading your book, Transform Your Life Now, and working with The Forgiveness Dialogue, I came to recognize that it was my mom’s love I was longing for on a subconscious level. By being overly giving to my partners, I was hoping that by pleasing them, I would symbolically  receive back the love I craved from my mom.

I was happy that I did the work I did prior to the breakup which was initiated by my partner. By working with you, I started to take ownership of my issues, my patterns, and what I needed to change to be able to create a lasting intimate relationship. As the result of the work we did together, when the breakup happened, I accepted it, took charge, and started to heal my own issues.

I feel like I am opening a new chapter in my life, one where I feel proud to be me. Thank you for everything.
