My therapists understanding has helped me deepen my feeling of understanding myself. Her understanding of me has helped me uncover/recover deep thoughts that I had pushed aside. Sorting out misunderstandings, unknown and unknowables matter a lot to me. Dr. Saeger has good boundaries around what she doesn't understand, and is clear to point out when that is because life is full of mysteries, because she doesn't know their parties personally, or because sometimes I talk to fast. Sometimes I feel it is a challenge to both of us to remember how little we know about other people in my life.

Some sessions are like safe and well-coached rehearsals for me to find out how I do and don't communicate well, in way I can't find out alone and won't risk finding out with anyone else. Other times it's like having an expert sherpa on journeys into uncharted territory. A few of the big benefits include: learning to temper my proclivity to ruminate, and jump to conclusions. From there to learn extremely valuable lessons about what I can and can't predict, and how may attitudes influence that. She has helped me regain my long-term strategy and hope.

My previous therapist was so repulsed by what I had to say, that I censored myself. Dr. Saeger is able to tolerate the way I talk and think and feel. Finally I have a place where I can be myself that gibes me strength to find another way.

The cultural differences were pretty big, so I was pretty amazed that Dr. Saeger figured out my problems in a way I could finally understand.

When I walked into her office I was vulnerable, out of my element and had made a series of mistakes. Dr. Saeger was calm, grounded and very knowledgeable and wise about my dilemma. I wish I had met Dr. Saeger earlier.

Dr. Saeger really understands the human condition. There have been so many ties I didn't have to feel like a freak when she was helping me solve my problems.

I feel a genuine sense of connection. Usually I feel I am more aloof and distant. Her friendly, attuned but not overly-warm manner is helping me become more present. I read an online review saying Dr. Sager's positive reviews seem like they were al written by the same person because they all use the word attuned. That made me laugh out loud. It's like saying all pixar film reviews are written by one person because they say entertaining.

Dr. Saeger offers new perspectives on my concerns that are informed by education, many years of professional experience, research, continuing education and her own life. She brings up new perspectives frequently, but not overwhelmingly frequently, always with grace and relevance.

First I want to say to Col.l. that I wouldn't be suspicious about people using the word "attuned". I think that's a pretty common word when people talk about what they're looking for in a therapist, esp people who have had some kind of graduate educ in psychology or counseling. I've even used the word myself, not sure where I picked it up, maybe a previous therapist? Anyhow, Dr. Saeger is the best therapist I've ever seen, and unfortunately, I've seen quite a few. I really wish I'd met her first. I think my life would have gotten back on track years ago. She listens very closely, is super intuitive--seems to understand what I'm feeling before I do, and can put it into words in a way I can't, though I'm way better than I used to be. She's absolutely trustworthy, and I've never felt anything she did or said was about her, rather than about what was best for me. I read the other complaint, and I really can't imagine Dr. Saeger violating my confidence without a really really good reason. I know she does couples therapy, and the whole confidentiality thing can get confusing when each person want something else. Maybe that's what happened with the complaint. anyhow. You should meet her and make up your won mind. You owe ti to yourself.

The positive reviews of this therapist seem to have been written by the same person...note how all of them use the term "attuned", in addition to having a similar writing style.

Dr. Saeger helped me with anxiety and depression that was affecting every part of my life. I had been to many well-recommended therapists before my family doctor gave me her name. Dr. Saeger helped me understand both the underlying problems and how to cope these problems. She was attuned to my feelings yet helped me feel safe enough to grapple with issues I had been unable to deal with before. Her clear boundaries created a safe working relationship. She guarded my confidentiality even though it was necessary for her to collaborate with other health care professionals. The hardest part of the treatment was saying good-bye, and she even helped me with letting go. I now see her twice a year and continue to learn and benefit from the work we have done.My work life and my relationship life works well now. I recommend her without reservation.

Dr. Saeger is the best. She can size up a situation, adeptly help you see it, identify multiple action possibilities, and find out what obstacles are in the way of taking next steps. Experienced, personable, attuned - someone you know you can fully trust.

Dr. Saeger is an exceptionally bright, attuned, insiteful, and experienced therapist. She also is really capable. She "got" what I was going on for me, helped me "get it", and began offering helpful strategies within the first hour.
