Larry spoke with assurance and a quiet power. He was the first human being that ever said to me, Kevin, you are enough just for being born, and you are deserving of everything this world has to offer.’ He validated me. He affirmed me. He guided me. He gave me the tools through his teachings. Having Larry in my life was nothing short of a miracle for me. I am eternally grateful for his guiding hand, his nurturing, his love.

Larry listened while guiding conversation in a positive and healing direction. I grew to trust and respect him quickly, in part due to his direct, honest, and sensible responses. Through his knowledge and quiet demeanor, I was able to confront and work on a plan to move through my difficulties. To this day I continue to use his words, and call upon him when I come across those ever abounding stumbling blocks that we all face.  I am most grateful to Larry, and I enthusiastically recommend him as the caring man I know.

We came to respect Dr. Cohen for his tenacity in overcoming personal obstacles, earning a Doctor of Philosophy degree, and becoming, in our opinion, an outstanding professional. Dr. Cohen’s help proved to be a turning point in our troubled relationship, and I give him credit for helping us to get ourselves to the point of greatly improving our relationship. Our relationship is vastly improved. I believe that Dr. Cohen is a caring, compassionate professional with a real desire to help people. I trust Dr. Cohen not only as a professional, but also as a friend, and I believe in him and trust him.

FIND YOUR TRUE SELF

trauma CAN affect youR presenT, AND may block your ability to be yourself, change, and meet your goals. Understanding and EMBRACING YOUR FULL SELF are key components of the coaching process. How you view and connect with YOURSELF CAN IMPACT YOUR ABILITY TO live the life you dream of living. ASSERTIVENESS AND MINDFULNESS work WILL lead YOU to a TRUer understanding of YOURSELF, AND free you up to move FORWARD toward meeting your goals. YOU MUST EMBRACE AND ACCEPT ALL OF YOURSELF if YOU EXPECT TO GET TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE.

 
 
I was able to untangle many issues that kept me from achieving a sober life. With Larry’s guidance, I learned to accept the things that affected me negatively in the present. Because of his constant support, compassion, and vigilance, I was able to, and continue to, embrace emotional sobriety. I can say that I am grateful for having ‘walked’ with him, and I am certain that he consistently cared for my growth and my ability to move forward.

SOMETIMES WE DON'T SEE THINGS THE WAY THEY REALLY ARE.

EYES WIDE OPEN

Together, we will examine 'HOW YOU THINK'. how DO you see yourself, others, and the world around you?  WE WILL WORK ON how you may benefit from a change in perspective. sometimes, people don’t see things the way they really are. we may view life through a LENS of faulty thinking, leading to dysfunctional behaviors. essentially, your thinking fuels your emotions, and your emotions fuel your behaviors. I will help you learn how to 'think things through' and expand your life view. by doing this, the way you feel may change, and how you react and behave may become more functional, and more successful. We will work together to uncover YOUR 'FAULTY thinking' and WE WILL work together to change it. You will learn how to 'get out of your own way' so that you are able to move in a positive direction and fulfill your life goals.

 
 
Through all of my work with Larry, he’s always kind, with an understanding demeanor and insightful knowledge into life’s obstacles. I have excelled at my job and in my personal relationships with family and friends. Larry has gotten me to take control of my life and I’ve never been happier.

EACH OF US HAS INNER WISDOM WAITING TO BE FOUND.

ACCEPTANCE IS FREEDOM

during my lifetime, I have struggled with many life CHALLENGES. I HAVE EXPERIENCED ADDICTIONS, DEPRESSION, INTIMACY ISSUES, and relaTIONAL PROBLEMS. I have had the PRIVILEGE of WORKing WITH caring professionals to FIND my DIRECTION, MEET MY GOALS, AND accept myself fully - both the bad and the good. today, i identify myself as a survivor.  together, we will examine your life experiences, and some of OUR WORK WILL FOCUS ON WHETHER YOU identify AS A SURVIVOR OR AS A VICTIM. IT IS A POWERFUL PROCESS TO UNCOVER THE TRUTH AND LET GO OF the narrow WAYs you see yourself and the world. SURVIVORS EMBRACE themselves, CONNECT WITH Their EMOTIONS, AND SEE THEir life WITH CLARITY. VICTIMS BLAME THEMSELVES AND OTHERS, HAVE DIFFICULTY OWNING THEIR OWN REALITY, AND OFTEN HAVE DEEP FEELINGS OF GUILT AND SHAME ABOUT WHO THEY ARE. through coaching, you will learn to accept yourself and others just as they are, and to RELEASE YOURSELF FROM faulty thinking and dysfunctional behaviors. you will BEGIN TO LOVE AND ACCEPT WHO YOU TRULY ARE, AND DISCOVER THE TOOLS NECESSARY TO LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE. ACCEPTANCE IS FREEDOM, AND FREEDOM ALLOWS YOU TO MOVE IN ANY DIRECTION YOU DESIRE.

I BELIEVE THAT EACH OF US HAS INNER WISDOM WAITING TO BE UNCOVERED. ARE YOU READY TO CONNECT WITH YOUR TRUE SELF? AND BECOME CONNECTED WITH EVERYONE ELSE?

 
 

IT TAKES WORK TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE. I EXPECT LASTING HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS. I DESERVE IT, I AM WORTH IT, AND I EXPECT IT.

COLLABORATION

we will work together building a collaborative partnership. As we no longer fulfill the roles of therapist and client, a commitment SUDDENLY exists to get to know EACH OTHEr in a more real way. This mutuality, the sharing of our lives and experiences, allows deeper emotional intimacy and trust to grow. This process brings awareness and empowerment. Working with me is not for the unmotivated. Come because you want to DO THE WORK. Unlike a relationship with A Psychotherapist (of which I was for many years), coaching is highly motivational. my role is to keep you accountable and moving forward toward the goals you establish. we will move in the direction you choose, and I will support your journey.

I had never been to any other coaches or therapists before, and friends shared nothing but horror stories about them. No horror here. Dr. Cohen truly cares about those he works with, and goes out of his way to help others. If he knows that you’re going through a crisis, he’ll actually call to see how you’re getting on. It’s how he rolls. He is genuine, non-judgmental, and truly cares. I encourage everyone who is going through it, or who is seeking direction, to check him out.
