“A Rock Star of Therapists…”

“Ilene is a Rock Star of Therapists. 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 more than a 3 hour drive each way to see her and she is worth the hassle of the drive.”
– Steve L.

“The therapists’ therapist….”

“Ilene Wolff is an exceptional therapist – the therapists’ therapist. Insightful, talented and quick. I attend a class she runs exclusively for therapists, called “Drama Therapy for Therapists.” I’ve never seen anyone so quickly identify the source of a problem and then instantly move toward the path to healing. The class is constantly in motion as we act out the drama that drives our inner drama, in what transforms into a drama-therapy-training-ground. An amazing, insightful experience, it translates well to my own clientele. “
