Nothing short of amazing
“I recently had the pleasure of experiencing a workshop with Ilene Wolf and she is a strong, bright and clear teacher and therapist who creates a lot of depth, safety, and connection in a very short period of time. Everyone in our group opened up, connected easily and experienced a great sense of joy in Ilene’s presence through her skilled facilitation. I highly recommend working with her.”

A lighthouse for those who feel stuck
“Ilene sets the bar for therapists. I met her in August 2019 and as my first therapist, she helped me untangle issues that were fundamental to my growth spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. She really pays attention and on an intuitive level knows what you truly need to hear and or do in life, even when at the time it may seem like the hardest thing. She’s a lighthouse for those who feel stuck, lost, and or alone. She draws out the strength and courage out of people that feel weak or can’t seem to find it for themselves. She’s amazing and worth the expense. If you’re on here contemplating about her, this is your sign to get started with her!! ”

A Rockstar of a therapist
“Ilene is a Rockstar of a therapist. Both my wife and I have seen her and we agree we have seen more progress on issues in the few meetings we had with her than with all the meetings we had with several other therapists. She quickly helps you see deeper layers of your issues and teaches you new tools to have better results. We have a three hour drive to see her and she is really worth the hassle of the drive.”

I would heartily recommend Ilene to any new parents out there
“My husband and I had a baby 7 months ago that, as you can understand, brought many changes into our life. We felt that speaking to someone about all these changes and trying to work through some of the issues that started appearing in our relationship was the positive and proactive approach to handling all that was going on! We both felt an instant connection and felt that Ilene perceived to the heart of some of our issues fairly quickly. While this is still new and fresh for us, we are seeing some positive changes and are looking for to additional discussions that will help us both grow in our personal relationship as well as the bond with our new baby girl. I would heartily recommend Ilene to any new parents out there that just need some additional hand holding while they wade through what can be some pretty rocky waters!”

She can help you turn quickly things around
“Ilene brought monumental changes to my life and has helped me deal with some issues that were never really helped by previous therapists. If I have a friend in a dark place, I would (and I have) unhesitatingly send them to Ilene. What surprised me was how quickly she can help you turn things around. I don’t really understand how she does it, but she is very active rather than just listening.”
Fabulous New Marriage
“Over the years, I have turned to Ilene who has helped me navigate emotionally charged issues: my divorce, my relocation, and a fabulous new marriage! Thanks to Ilene’s wise counsel, my closest relationships in my family remain intact- despite serious conflict and crisis!

Insightful, talented and quick
“Ilene Wolf is insightful, talented and quick. I attended a class she runs exclusively for therapists, called “Getting to The Heart of the Matter.” I’ve never seen anyone so quickly identify the source of a problem and instantly understand the path to healing. This workshop allows you to bring to life your inner drama and rewrite your life’s “script,” with the support of the group. You’ll bring to life relationships, recruit allies and heal age-old problems while retrieving the most loving and healthy parts of yourself. This is absolutely one of the most rewarding and effective therapy classes I have ever attended – and it’s fun. I highly recommend it!”
