“Very few times in my life I could call myself “lucky”; but certainly one of those was when I found Laura Sabatini! I literally picked her randomly out of a list of counselors a few years ago when I was living in Richmond, VA,  and I cannot believe how amazingly fortunate that choice turned to be. At the time I needed help with the consequences of a very upsetting break up, and other correlated situations in my life. I need to say that it was not my first experience with a psychotherapist, I had several in the last 30 years, all with different outcomes; some where good and helpful, some just ok, and some others quite bad. But NOBODY was as close to perfection as she is! I agree with the previous reviews; Laura Sabatini combines impressive skills as empathic listener with an intelligent and very personalized approach to psychotherapy. She does not follow a standardized, “cookie cutter” procedure with her clients. Instead she customizes her techniques and therapeutical strategies on the person she has in front of. Where some of my previous therapists were focused too much on one side (for example relying heavily on classical Jungian therapy or on the other hand being too direct and intrusive), Laura Sabatini exhibited a perfect balance of all sides. She always had the ability to say the right words at the right time, and every session it was a confirmation of her masterful handling of our client/therapist relationship. In only five months she was able to increase my awareness and lift my spirit in a way that was unimaginable to me before, acting both on the rational and on the emotional level. I highly recommend her on all counts, she’s just a wonderful therapist, and a great person all together!”
