TESTIMONIALS+

Thanks Ghazi. You have done a lot to save my marriage and keep my family unit together. For that I am ever grateful…

— Clyde

I came to know and love Ghazi while I was a graduate student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Ghazi was a counselor at Harvard at the time and counsel me he did. He gave me perspective on where I was and perspective on what was within me to accomplish while I was there. His spirit is difficult to describe in words without experiencing it first hand, but there is a soulfulness, kindness, wisdom, grace, understanding and acceptance to Ghazi that engulfs you while in his presence. He makes one feel infinitely better about oneself and that’s a special quality to possess and to pass on to others. He is a spiritual guide in a modern age-an old soul for a new century. If you have the opportunity, contact him. You will be richly rewarded in the process. My only regret is that he is so far away from me logistically at this point that I cannot be in his company on a regular basis. Despite that, our time together feels like it was only yesterday.

— Dr. David A. Willard

My time with Dr. Ghazi has benefitted me greatly. Through his guidance, I was able to address and resolve many of my issues and become the best person I could possibly be. Dr. Ghazi is really caring and most importantly, he truly cares and has the client’s best interests at heart. Because of him, I can honestly say that I am a happier person.
