Since 1998, many of Dr. Mattera’s clients have experienced improvement in their personal and professional lives. Here are just a few comments clients and colleagues have written about their working relationship with Joyful Soul, LLC owner Dr. Laurie Mattera:

Dr. Mattera: I really appreciated going over everything with you a couple weeks ago. I am beginning to understand myself more. I honestly believe it will still take time for all of it to sink in. However, I am feeling pretty confident about things now. Again, I really appreciate the time and effort you put into working with me. I will definitely contact you when other questions pop up. Thanks again!

From A Colleague

A huge thank you to you on behalf of myself & my husband. After considering all that you said, our son has taken what you said to heart…your evaluation has given him a base on which to consider his future. Before his consultation with you he just couldn’t get focused, the world was too big and the possibilities too many. Until you spoke with him I don’t think he could see himself in any jobs he had considered. But now he has been reading the information in the notebook, doing some reading online and talking about his future in a way we’ve never seen. He has set 30 day goals for himself. You were able to connect with him in a way nobody else has been able to do. If you weren’t so wonderful at engaging him in a meaningful conversation it would have all been for naught. Perhaps later on he might want to come back and speak with you when he has narrowed his focus more.
