Healing and Counseling
"Working with Mindy, I entered a unique therapeutic experience that has enabled me to hear and listen to my authentic voice, find what nurtures me, and use these insights to guide my relationships with myself and with others.
I’ve learned to recognize the depth and significance of the body/mind/spirit connection. Judaism, meditation, kabbala, and prayer—integral components of therapy with Mindy—have had a great impact on my well-being. They’ve helped me to discover and embrace my spiritual needs and develop a relationship with God that has guided me, given me inner strength, and contributed to my physical and emotional healing.
Bringing these discoveries into my daily life, I strive to make “I want” rather than “I should” choices and statements and to seek nourishing, rather than draining, relationships. Listening actively to others while empowering myself and asserting my own truth has become a guiding principle for strengthening my relationships with my partner, family, friends, and others.
Thank you, Mindy, for initiating me into what I know will be an ongoing, life-enhancing journey." -Previous Client
