Testimonials:

“Life is tough. It presents challenges all of the time. My first scary challenge that knocked me down was when I got Multiple Sclerosis in 1993. After addressing the physiological portion, many fears and irrational behavior developed. Because of Dr. Lavi, and my time as her patient, I was able to get back on track and enjoy my life despite knowing I would have MS the rest of my life and would need to work hard to manage and control it.

What Dr. Lavi didn’t know until now, is that she helped me again, when I faced stage-3 cancer years later. Her guidance and effective dream-planning ideas stayed with me all these years and helped me again through an even more frightening time of horrific cancer treatments. I would l not be who I am today without her help and guidance.” L.D. (former patient)

“I still pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming.” Jody (not her real name)

Barbara is an authentic passionate soul. Someone easy to love and to learn from. When she is talking I always feel like taking notes. Naomi B

“…you freed me & I feel better than I have in years! So if you went into your profession because you truly wanted to make a difference, in the world & in the lives of people–consider your profession well chosen & consider your job well done. You’ve change my life…& I thank you for it!” JCP
