E-mail from DR dated 9/26/2015:

"I honestly believe I'd have gone down the tubes (probably several times) if it hadn't been for your kind and patient help for the duration of four years. There are no sufficient words to thank you for your commitment to T's and my processes."

Communication from DM, dated 10/04/2014:

"I was a testament to the healing powers of EMDR when ... went off the other night. I remained calm and didn't trigger him more. I went into action and did all the right things. I was not triggered but accepted that ... was in crisis. I didn't make it personal! Thank you so much for helping me clearing out the traumas of my mind." -- DM

Responses from attendees at the Statewide WIC Meeting, 8/20/2014:

Jean Eva's office is definitely a sanctuary; inviting, comfortable, and safe. She always starts therapy sessions on time and infuses each one with a balance of caring, compassion, and moving one forward toward ultimate healing. Her gentle and effective approaches during traditional talk therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, and hypnosis can be trusted. It is difficult to find a counselor with the attributes and skills Jean Eva possesses. I did and I'm grateful! -- D.R.

Email from M dated June 13, 2012

"I really didn't know what to expect last night. Thank you for being our "mediator." It was quite helpful. I haven't seen B smile or have that sparkle in his eyes in a long time. WE obviously have work to do, but I think we are on the right track. Thanks also for allowing us to be late!" -- M. 6/13/2012

Assessments and Consultations

"I find Jean Eva to be very insightful, often 'hitting the nail on the head' in regard to what I'm not doing or what I need to do to improve my relationship with my business. At the same time she creates a space for me to come up with my own insights. I have seen changes in my attitude, and opportunities happening, because of this. I appreciate her sincerity and her interest." -- Jane Puryear, Small Business Owner

"Jean Eva and I have been working on my unhappy job situation about the last two months. This coaching has kept me staying positive and hopeful for better things in life. The structure and the steps involved in making any big changes are a necessity for me to stay focused on my career path. Jean Eva is a caring compassionate, supportive person, making her a great coach." -- Amber D. Cummings

"Jean Eva Thumm was great to work with in improving my management skills through better communication and understanding of those I work with. The work with Myers-Briggs ... has given me a greater sense of awareness at work and in all facets of my life. ... I highly recommend Jean Eva to anyone interested in gaining a greater understanding of themselves and the world around them." -- Mary, State of New Mexico

"I feel these sessions were excellent. I have learned so much. I feel that they have made me see things I can improve in myself to be a better supervisor. ... I think the most important is communication and how we present ourselves. Thank you so much, Jean Eva. You have been wonderful." -- Participant in Mediation and Training, Las Vegas Medical Center

"I feel I've learned how to communicate better with staff, residents, and family. Be willing to listen at times instead of always being the talker.  ... You helped me look from the heart (inside and outside)... I came into these meetings stubborn and set in my ways. I feel I'm walking out a person who has and can improve -- a better person. I can look, listen, and learn before reacting. I feel (I know) I will be a better team player, better worker, better friend, and better family member." -- Margaret L.
