What Clients Are Saying

"My experience with Dr. Eleanor, in recent months (2019), has been nothing short of life-changing. In the span of a year I experienced major set-backs both professionally and physically, this coupled with a new baby, put serious strain on my marriage and professional life. Before I could even recognize what was going on, deep depression and anxiety set it and communication between my wife and I nearly came to a halt. Things appeared to be hopeless and the fear that I would lose ‘everything’ loomed overhead.

I had not experienced therapy of any kind prior to this, and I was reluctant to say the least. However, within minutes of meeting Dr. Eleanor I felt completely at ease. I felt as though this was someone, I had known my whole life; it was so easy to speak with her. There are some people that just exude calm and healing, and Dr. Eleanor is absolutely one of these people.

Within a few months I was back on track, within a year I started a new and thriving company and after just 3 couples sessions, my wife and I are back where we were before we had our awesome kiddo. The whole process felt so natural and so un-invasive that I had no idea healing was actually happening underneath our chats. I really cannot put into words what Dr. Eleanor Haspel-Portner means to me and my family. We are forever grateful. "   (Dave C. & Family)


“In late January,2017, upon learning that I would be scheduled for reverse shoulder replacement surgery, I contacted Dr. Eleanor Haspel-Portner.

My intention was to have her sage advice in moving through this event to recuperate fully and quickly. She created preoperative and postoperative hypnotic suggestion tapes as well as selected musical tapes, which I still use.

Since I am now four months past the surgery, I can say with certainty, that listening regularly to the tapes, accounts for the ease and smoothness of my recuperation. The last time I used prescription pain medication was in my IV in the morning after my surgery. I've never used any since.

The tapes were so relaxing that I looked forward to rest periods when I listened to them as well as for very restful sleep at night. I will always be deeply grateful for Dr. Haspel-Portner's caring, wisdom and finely-honed skills.”  (Harriet D) 


 “I am so grateful that you are alive and that you are in my life. Your wisdom, your compassion, your brilliance and your love of life shine through in everything. You've inspired me to learn in a deep way again, to trust my life and truly create it. Thank you, dear Eleanor, for your willingness to share who you are and what you know and for your encouragement for us to be all we can be. You are a treasure. Many blessings to you. With deepest love and appreciation,” (Annie C.)


“You are a unique teacher and a modern-day mystic who integrates inner and outer worlds in a way inspires and motivates my soul and spirit. You go right to the heart of the matter and touch me and get me to think straight about what I’m doing with my life. From the very first time we spoke, your words remain part of me. I’ve always gotten the feeling that you know more about me then I do. And yet you allow me to be who I am in the moment so that I can learn my lessons for myself. You give just enough information and then give room for me to make my own choices. I know you see each and every one of us as unique transmitters of energy. As I continue putting together my self’s so that what I present to world is totally me and not anyone else’s version of reality, you hold the highest honor and respect for how you take responsibility for your every word and thought and deeds.” (Angela R.)


 “When I first began working with Eleanor, I knew she was a person that who would potentially impact my life in extraordinary ways. I have spent most of my life living based on the needs and expectations of others, never consciously acknowledging that I might have needs of my own. I have what many people would consider a successful career life and family life, yet I knew on an internal spiritual level that something was missing in my life.

With Eleanor’s loving and patient guidance, I have begun the journey to discover my true life’s purpose. Her expert listening and communication skills have helped me unravel the limiting beliefs that prevent me from achieving maximum purpose, potential and joy in my life.

Eleanor, with compassion and grace, has facilitated my personal growth on my own terms and at my own pace. She knows just when I need that extra push and when to give me a little time and space to reflect. Her ability to help me understand my strengths and weaknesses has facilitated a leap in personal growth on all levels.

Under Eleanor’s guidance, I have learned to communicate better with those I encounter personally and professionally. By helping me recognize limiting and repeating personal patterns, I have a newfound confidence; I can achieve any goal I choose to pursue. It has been such a blessing to finally discover a personal guide and coach who respects me for who I am and helps me to appreciate all of my accomplishments, great and small.” (Marge M.)


"The one thing that has hit me most, lately, is how I can begin to see the future differently. I realize I've been stuck in a pattern of “limited” thinking.  Eleanor's encouragement and gentle "prodding" is expanding possibilities and enabling me to project and "play with" different outcomes for my future."

(Lynn F.)


 "Even though I worked with Eleanor many years ago, I continue to use what I learned from her. Her wise words and loving guidance became part of me. I know she's with me everyday!
