"I don't even know how many therapists I've been to looking for structure. How will we get from here to where we are going?...Rachel gave that to me in the first 5 minutes."
"I can mark my life as 'Before the Retreat' and 'After the Retreat'; it changed my life THAT much!"
"I've been in therapy for over 50 years; no one has ever gotten it like Rachel. Finally, therapy is going somewhere."

"I don't know what's happening between sessions but, I'm growing. I've seen a lot of different therapists but I have never had therapy like this!"
J. S. CANADA
"I liked that Rachel did this [retreat] as a client herself. Sometimes you're not sure if therapists are just teaching something they learned but they don't really "get it", Rachel does. "
J. W. Santa Cruz, CA
"I was pretty nervous about doing this [retreat] in a group but it has been such a powerful experience; I'm learning so much from watching other people's process."
"Basically, I want my money back from every other therapist I saw before Rachel."
"I feel lighter in the world. I don't feel so angry. I don't take things so personally. I feel genuinely open. I feel different!"

"Rachel is a unicorn from outer space; I can't believe I found her!"
"I've never looked forward to therapy before but I look forward to coming here. "
"Dr. Rosenfeld is able to identify and articulate the issues at hand very quickly. She has given me valuable tools to incorporate into my life, especially my work life. I prefer this to traditional 'Talk Therapy' which did not offer solutions. I am extremely grateful."
"I feel so much better than when I first came in. I needed to work through some things and now I have clear next steps."
"This is so much more than I expected!"
"This feels so different from anything I've felt in my life. A huge weight has been lifted off of me.; feeling safe is a TRIP!"
"I would recommend EMDR to anybody. I feel like I've learned so much about how the brain works; it's so weird".
"I feel so different from how I felt six months ago"

"I'm doing this work and it's hard BUT, it's hard for 15 minutes and then I feel so much better!"

"I feel closer to myself, it just makes more sense."
"I'm able to trust myself now, not do so much second guessing".
"[sigh], I just feel so much better!"
"Before therapy I couldn't bring myself to admit or understand what narcissistic abuse was. In therapy my experiences were validated; now I feel empowered. Rachel helped me to set boundaries, and she gave me facts and action items that I can actually do. I'm really glad that I found Rachel! I never expected to make so much progress in such a short time."
"I've never felt so hopeful after just one session [with Dr. Armienti]!"
"My feedback about the weekend retreat: I wouldn't change anything. It was perfect"
