"Ms. Konigsberg is a gifted, talented and most of all.... creative therapist in her work with individuals and families. She is capable of defusing even the most intense of situations with her presence, and non-judgmental focus on how to come to an acceptable solution for everyone in matters of conflict. As a colleague, and one who has joined Ms. Konigsberg in co-therapy and mediation work, I am often in awe of her creative approach to moving the process forward in a natural and focused manner."

“My first contact with Matilde was at a training workshop I was leading in relational therapies. Matilde was clearly the top participant with lively, intelligent, and personal commentary. We have shared clients and referred clients to each other since then. Matilde has demonstrated clinical skill and compassion. She has the ability to describe complex personality and psychological topics in everyday language. Her clients love her.”
