“I loved that she allowed me the time I needed to reach my own conclusions. I also loved Anat was able to identify the things I could not see and communicate that with me (ex. my need for more compassion with myself, and to "play" more and emphasis on self care). I also really appreciated how she made me feel like I already had all the tools to deal with things, that I was already equipped.

“Anat is one of the most insightful, nonjudgemental, and overall competent therapists I've ever worked with. As a therapist myself, I have very high standards and understand the "behind the scenes" strategies at play during therapy, and never once did I feel let down by her skills. Anat embodies the skills and abilities necessary to be a great therapist including, compassion, empathy, insight, and authenticity. She was open, honest, consistent, and loving, creating a safe space for exploration. Anat is also great at supporting specific and measurable goal setting. She was very flexible, easily switching between emotional processing and more goal-oriented change.” (2019)
