“I recently contacted Dr. Goodstone for a professional consultation about one of the characters in my new novel. Not only did Dr. Goodstone graciously and enthusiastically provide her expert opinion, she offered some additional insight after reading each and every chapter. I can’t thank this wonderful woman enough for her support, encouragement, and the time she spared to do some small editing. Dr. Goodstone is a knowledgeable, caring and responsive professional, and I will certainly thank her for all her help on the acknowledgement page in my Fireflies novel.”

“Dr. Goodstone has contributed her time, services, and expertise on the mind-body connection to several national organizations. She is a dedicated, caring professional who is continually reading her newsletters and journals and taking refresher courses to maintain her skills and keep current in the field. In the past few years, at those times when my life felt unbearably stressful, I would go to see Dr. Goodstone for a body psychotherapy session. Invariably, I would leave her office feeling calmer and more at peace. Her clients have reported a similar sense of well-being from her sessions.”

She is a kind, sensitive, well trained professional with much integrity.”

“Dr. Erica Goodstone is a competent, compassionate and insightful relationship therapist. I was in an extremely conflicted emotional state, due to a difficult and painful relationship, when I came for a session with Dr. Goodstone for counseling. Through a myriad of creative therapy techniques including talk therapy and body work, I was able to find my true self and gain perspective and insight into my relationship and my response to loss. I am grateful to Dr. Erica Goodstone for getting me through a very confusing and tumultuous experience and helping me to move past it toward achieving more worthwhile goals.”

D. S., Entrepreneur, South Florida

“Your therapy sessions seem to have helped us better understand our current positions, but more importantly the path towards the preservation of our marriage. You coached us to express our feelings, desires, likes and dislikes, and that is a great start. You also got us started in rebuilding the relationship trust that eroded during the last several months. It is quite clear to both of us that to revitalize our intimate connection with each other, we need to get re-acquainted with the ‘new’ ourselves. We are aware that this process will take some time and we are determined to give it a shot. We thank you, Dr. Goodstone, for having played an important role in repairing our marriage.”

– I. and R., Former Client Couple, South Florida

“After several years of working with Dr. Goodstone, I finally developed the courage to live the life of my dreams. I retired from a lifetime career, I met a beautiful woman and got married for the first time in my life, and we have begun working and traveling together as a couple. Thanks to Dr. Goodstone, I am finally living a normal and happy life.”

– S. R., Photographer, Former Client, New York City

My teacher was very pleased because I was able to deliver it with so much enthusiasm and the main reason was because I was excited to talk about such a wonderful person and it has made an impact on my life to meet with such an intelligent and accomplished woman. Muah!”
