Dr. Schauss has been a great help to me in some very difficult times in my life. I had to shut down my events business during COVID and start a new career at 40 and the whole situation made me feel desperate.
Doing therapy with Dr. Schauss has helped give me more tools to deal with all the emotions and have healthier ways of coping with the stress than I had utilized in the past.
I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for help.

I think Dr. Schauss has been excellent in connecting with things I was already in line with and building on them. I'm impressed with how he's listened and guided me along the way. I like his approach is gentle and simple while communicating the depth and importance of the materials and practices. I feel fortunate to have been paired with him.
