What Jack Friedland’s clients are saying…

“One session with Jack was unequivocal to any counseling experience I have ever had. It transformed a relationship that was growing cold and bitter into a warm and loving one practically overnight. Understanding how status and control issues were affecting us, we moved into a new direction of our thinking and actions which created an uplifting and sustaining change in our relationship. We just returned from a second honeymoon!”

  “Jack has a quality rare for a man in his field in that his perceptions and understandings of both male and female meaning reach beyond traditional gender-linked values. He drives home healthy and successful human needs and interaction while concurrently maintaining the ability of clients to maintain their gender-specific upbringing and orientation. This eliminates the particular argument over which sex is right! Surprisingly little need go into this as Jack bypasses the cultural divisions between men and women by focusing on what each needs to feel good about Self, rather than Other. The by-product of this action is more tolerance and love for Self and Other. In this non-traditional approach, Jack accomplishes in a few sessions what takes others many.”

  “When you are ready to see and hear and ready to learn, a teacher will appear. Thanks for appearing! I feel like Atlas shrugging and having the weight of the world rolling from his shoulders. You are responsible for that relief, because you make me see, really see, that I am not responsible for Ted’s actions — he is. So simple! I so appreciate also, not having to roll around in the mud and the muck with “He said,” “She said,” “He did,” “She did.” Once you knew enough about us to fully and clearly ascertain the problem, you went directly into solving it! Thanks!”

  “Dear Jack, Thank you for seeing John and I concerning our marital problems. It was amazing how you picked up the root of the problem so quickly and clearly. I am very sure that I would never have been successful in communicating the source of my deep unhappiness to John without you. His control mania was driving us apart and I could never get through that it had to stop. After two meetings I began to notice a subtle difference in John’s behavior immediately upon returning home. It has slowly improved steadily and conversation is easier and more open each time a disagreement rises. Your chart was so effective in relating to our unique problem of how John was treating me. I know it had an impact. Thank you again.”

Lavona B.

  “(Jack’s ) hands-on, practical approach to dealing with marital issues has been very beneficial to us. We have come to realize that we are not fundamentally incompatible, but need tools to deal with our problems, and Jack quickly provided us with these. Our sessions with Jack are comfortable and productive, and we always leave feeling better about our relationship and ourselves.”

Claudette N.

  “Thanks to Jack, my outlook on relationships is very positive and thanks to his guidance, I am finally in a healthy and growing relationship. His theories and explanations simplify the dilemmas of relationships.”

Kelly W.

  “After an hour with Jack Friedland, I felt more confident and clear over issues that overpowered my life. He seemed to have an understanding of the issues in my life. His therapy is to the point. What I learned from Jack was a reminder that when people are mean, nasty or plain inconsiderate, they are just showing their weaker side.”

James B.

  “I’m a professionally employed, mid-life, widow who was in need of some counsel along life’s path. I began my journey with Jack Friedland when I was struggling with depression, sense of self, and loss of a four year relationship. I was feeling helpless, hopeless, and unworthy of love. Jack helped lead me down the path to the discovery of a better understanding of myself in relationship to others and to self-empowerment, which is the key. Jack helped me gain a working knowledge of the way people relate to and influence each other. He also gave me the tools to come from a positive place to aid in developing powerful relationships in my life. All of this he did effectively in a surprisingly short amount of time!”

Erica C.

  “Foremost I would like to say that Jack makes you feel at ease around him and he is completely non-judgmental. Hence making you feel more comfortable about seeking therapy. There are several things that I think Jack has assisted me with: He doesn’t dwell on past issues — he deals with the here and now. Jack gives you the knowledge and the power from his sessions to change and/or better yourself. He gives you the power to help you help yourself. He has the ability to assess the information you have given him and put it into a different perspective. Not only is it more comprehensible, but it gives you power to sift through the minutiae and get to the point. He assists you with the fine tuning of your life. Last but not least, the examples Jack uses are not only amusing but very useful.”

Elizabeth R.

  “Jack’s simple approach gave me actual tools to improve my relationship with my husband, my family, my co-workers and everyone I encounter. It was a very positive experience that works!”

Jean A.

  “It is not often that we have an opportunity to work with an individual who truly has an ability to touch our senses in such a meaningful way. Jack’s approach to life’s many facets of mind, soul, and personal energy has been both a rewarding and enriching experience of adventure. From my heart to yours, thank you Jack for being such a positive influence on my life!”
