"I highly recommend Eliyahu as a therapist. His presence is gentle and disarming, and he speaks eloquently and without pressure. He is deep-hearted, understanding, and possesses a power of empathy essential to this type of work. If you are looking for grounded support and compassionate listening, look no further." - S. Tziporah M. 

 

"I originally met Eliyahu in a group-led Mens Group in the East Bay. His grounded presence and "real" feedback are a powerful combination. What I like best about Eliyahu is that he is educated and versed in healing work, psychotherapy, and mens work, and yet his style of interacting feels honest and not "loosey-goosey". He is a strong and accomplished individual, both professionally and personally, and perhaps more importantly a very good person. To top it off, he is an AMAZING musician. Anyone who has ever heard him play or speak about music can attest to this. From my personal experience with Eliyahu I would recommend him for any kind of men's or young adult work. He has earned my highest trust and respect."  - Ori S. Berkeley
