I just had an AMAZING session with Dexter Gelfand. I VERY highly recommend him. Life changing. Thank you so much Dexter. I would like every one of my friends to experience your counseling.

“Evelyn” lost her husband not a long time ago, and has been struggling to deal with it. She contacted me seeking relief, and I gave her a free session. A few days after the session, she sent me this message:
“Hi Dexter. Just a quick note here. Since our session, I definitely notice a lightness or lack of heaviness that I felt since (the time she lost her husband). I was around his friends the last couple of days and in talking about him, that extreme heaviness just wasn’t there anymore and it was nice to talk about him without it. There was also some kind of agitation that went along with that, which also is no longer there. I only recognized that because it’s gone. I am much calmer and more relaxed. Thank you.”
A very long time ago, due to hard circumstances, I made a decision that would affect me for lifetimes. It is so powerful when we do what I call “making life molding decisions”, generally as an attempt to cope with hard times. It is an effort to escape or avoid the situation at hand. And so I have learned to meet head on all my life experiences, and to create in my mind for adventure, not for escape.
Dex, your techniques never cease to amaze me! I feel so much more in control than I ever have. Things that used to be impossible for me or that I so wish to do but “only someday” I take head on now.
When I think of what I can do now I can’t help but laugh. This new inner calmness, clarity and confidence has turned my life around. When I first met you I was homeless, living in a van and barely able to make enough for gas and food. I hated myself, hated how inept I was and really didn’t see things ever getting better for me. I woke up each day feeling terrible. I lived with feelings of extreme anxiety, like I did something wrong, like impending doom. Now I can hardly remember what it was like to feel that way. Now I’m happy all the time.
Every now and then I think about what I want to accomplish and I think about putting it off or not doing because right now I can’t. And then I think there’s nothing stopping me and laugh and laugh, and then I do what I wanted to do.
Dexter the Magnificent, you truly are a genius among your peers, and you have helped me realize me!!! The greatest gift of all is to introduce someone to their potential. We are not even done yet, but what a long, long, long way we have come in such a short time!
“Dex, I am really, really changed! I’m so much bigger, so much bolder, smarter, quicker, all thanks to you Dex!
Things are just working out for me now! It’s amazing!!!!!! The things I have always wanted to do but seemed impossible are now just a matter of deciding to do them!
I have this calm, cool, comfortable self confidence that is making it possible for me to dream bigger and create action plans to make it a reality.”

Thank you Dex! I think its amazing that I’ve found you, I’m finally building the life that I’ve been dreaming of since I was a young child! Thank you, Dex!

I’m feeling good since our last session; I feel calmer about making good decisions and my anxiety is noticeably reduced. I feel stronger with increased clarity.
I’m also realizing how much I withheld and denied my power by hiding inside my “failure” persona construct.
A.D. Is a writer and performer whose focus is on how to unleash the full scope of her creative potential, and so she is working to resolve every barrier and to gain full access to her creative powers and abilities, fully actualize her dreams. She has this to share in the past week:
“I believe that the idea that there is always something horrible to contend with is indoctrinated, I think that everything can be great, I really do believe that!
I think I finally understand that I have no need or reason to be insecure; I don’t have to justify my existence, I don’t have to be that person anymore, I’m done with playing that game! Wow Dex, I’m creating a completely different reality now!”

I was fortunate today to recognize, address and successfully deconstruct a persona of mine that had been harboring in my core/psych for a while, one that didn’t allow me to flourish. It was had been occupying my abdominal cavity, where I would feel stress. I was able to take full responsibility for it, and, today with Dexter’s guidance, pull it out by its roots and relegate it to the compost pile. May it do some final good by feeding the lovely flowers and herbs we need to sustain our health and well being. I’m going forward with wonderful plans to gain momentum and sustainable goals to create balance and order, without further procrastination. My most sincere thanks to my friend and counselor, Dexter Gelfand.
From the little “digger”,
Dex, I appreciate your expertise!
When I work with you, I’m more stable. No one else gets right to the source of things like you!
