Recently posted on a popular online review site. So interesting and varied are the results described by my client I thought it would be fun to post it here too:
"Honestly, I wish I could give Mind Matters more than 5 stars, they truly deserve it. FYI, if you're feeling somewhat skeptical by all of the 5 star reviews (like I was when I first looked into Mind Matters), stop. They really are legit.
I saw Lisa for a total of 3 sessions over the last month. I actually went to her for what I consider to be a bit of a TV addiction. As a person with ADD, I frequently experience periods when I just need to zone out and unplug b/c of over stimulation--for me this usually involves sitting in front of the TV for 3-5 hours at a time (sometimes for a few days in a row) to sort of recover.
After 3 sessions with Lisa, I have experienced the following results:
1. My TV watching is much more under control. I haven't had any periods where I feel like my viewing is out of control.
2. I'm actually getting up earlier. I used to get up with just enough time to throw on clothes and run out the door to get to work. On average, I've been getting up an hour to an hour and a half earlier than I used to.
3. I feel much more confident and relaxed.
4. I cleared out my house of everything that I felt was clutter, distracting, or that I just needed to let go of. I even converted a long closet into a private meditation room where I can now go to relax w/o my dogs or husband disturbing me.
5. I am a generally positive person, but since I started seeing Lisa even the days where I just feel "down" for no reason have disappeared.
6. I'm actually exercising more frequently. B/c I'm not as exhausted after work, I find that there have been random days when I just feel like exercising!
7. I am more mindful in a way that it is truly difficult for people with ADD to be.
8. I've been outstandingly focused and productive at work.
If you're thinking about doing it but are feeling hesitant, I would encourage you to go for it. The work that Lisa does can help you open up doors that you didn't even realize existed, and can help you on your road to becoming your best self.
I'll say one last thing, about the price, which I'm sure is a deterrent for some people. It is a bit pricey (but not as bad as I was expecting--and for what she does I honestly think she could charge $500 a session and it would still be worth it), but when you break it down, it works out to about the same amount you pay for an hour for a private therapist so it's important to put it in context. You should also look at the price as an investment in yourself that will keep paying you dividends long after your sessions have ended."
