As someone who has struggled with suicidal depression since childhood, I have done important work with many therapists, counselors, and healers. But Bambi Rattner is the first to help me recognize, name, and face my deepest wounds, and to compassionately embrace the parts into which I broke myself to survive. Bambi has not only shown me that I have the strength to walk into the valley of the shadow I have always feared; she has led me into and through the valley and stood beside me there. Now, I can always hear her gentle, unwavering voice when I need to, no matter the roaring inside me, and I can always find the light she helped me kindle, no matter what storms are blowing, inside or out.

Along the way, Bambi has taught me so much about who I am and how my self – and selves in general – work, how they suffer and how and they heal. Her teaching has given me skills and understanding that help me every day, and have enabled me to be there for others. If you are looking for a therapist who can guide you on the journey from brokenness to wholeness, I hope you will reach out to Bambi.
