Lester Severe
President at Gateway Management Services

It is my pleasure to endorse your LaughingRX session that you presented to our group of managers, as the one session that had the most impact on our people. Our staff focuses on dealing with life challenges of needy families and the massive amount of compliance paperwork required. This combination tends to drain the "spirit" out of their lives. Your session was a great success in bringing out a side of my people that I do not get to see very often.  

Thank you

Dear Ms. Berry:

On behalf of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), I would like to thank you for your excellent presentation during the Innovations in Recovery Seminar, held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rockville, MD. Your presentation “Laughter is the Best Medicine – Let’s Laugh!” helped to make the event a success and a time of learning for all. We thank you for sharing your knowledge, time and expertise at the meeting.  

Again, please accept our appreciation for your thoughtful and valuable presentation. We look forward to continuing our partnership in promoting mental health recovery.

Craig Adler

President, DLT Solutions
hired Nira as a Motivational Consultant and keynote speaker 

“Nira has worked with me as a coach and I highly recommend her.
I found working with Nira a very valuable experience. In my case, I am starting a new business and I found myself "stuck"in several areas,such as managing my time working from home and having discipline. Through Nira, I discovered that the root of my problem included fear and an inability to motivate myself. She was able to recognize my issues and suggested manageable strategies,or "baby steps" that made the process feel do-able and less scary. I now felt accountable, and I needed that. The small baby steps gave me a little traction to build on, that had previously eluded me. Nira has great instincts, and I felt I could be completely open and honest without judgment. She genuinely cares about your success, is patient and is a great listener. We can be very hard on ourselves. As my coach, Nira gave me permission to lay it all out on the line and then helped me figure out ways to overcome my weaknesses and recognize my strengths.

"I just had a miracle!"  Louise L. said to everyone in Nira's LaughingRx class at The Wellness Community, Bethesda, Maryland,  May 2, 2008. 
I haven't been able to bend my right knee to sit down or stand up for the past two years.  I've had so many treatments that haven't worked.  I've had water removed from my knee, I've had cortisone shots, nothing has helped me.  After 1 hour class with Nira and participating in her LaughingRx class, I am able to stand and sit down without any pain.  I am able to stand and sit down using my right knee!  It's miraculous.  I've always heard that laughing is the best medicine, but this is a miracle.  This will change the quality of my life. I can't wait to get to the next LaughingRx class with Nira."

    Hi Nira, my colleague Meghann Schwartz met you over the weekend, and I wanted to contact you. I do programming for a number of women engagements for the Jewish Federation in Howard County, and I'd
    like to get more information about what you do. Specifically, since we are very small with a limited budget, what do you charge? Hope to hear from you.

  • Robert Benjamin (Thursday, August 27 15 01:09 am EDT)

    Thank you Nira for your uplifting laughter program for our annual meeting! Everyone was smiling for hours following!
