“Mindy, your presence throughout my wedding process -- before, during, and after -- added so much depth and sensitivity to my process of becoming a bride. Your insights helped me tune in emotionally, spiritually and Jewishly to what it means to become a bride in the inner and outer
realm. Your leadership, sensitivity, and tremendous wisdom inspired me and those around me to create a wedding that truly encapsulated what marriage means to me. Without you, it would have been very difficult to uncover these layers. Thank you, Mindy, for all of your help throughout the entire weekend. Thanks to you I felt calm, joyful, mindful, and present at every moment of the wedding weekend. Every bride should be so lucky as to have you as her guide."  (

“My heart speaks of Mindy Ribner in with much love and gratitude for having her in my life and in my family's life. She is a deep, spiritual, angelic soul who is there in a "holy" way to help others. She is more than a therapist, a rabbi, a friend...she is truly a gift from Hashem for all who are blessed to have met her. She not only helped me out of a complete nervous breakdown, with her soft and spiritual tenderness, she helped my cousin while she was dying at a very young age of ovarian cancer, even from afar. My cousin a frightened wonderful soul, young, no husband, no children, did not want to die. She was in such denial as her body broke down and the cancer spread throughout causing terrible pain and suffering. nevertheless, she wanted to live and fight her cancer forever. Unfortunately for her, G-d had different plans for her and her fight to hold on, though heroic, was excruciatingly painful, for her, and for those who loved her.  Mindy Ribner had only met my cousin in person 5-6 times and then had to leave for her Florida winter last year. Well, when we reached out to Mindy to help my shriveling cousin, not only was she was there, she was our rescuer. Mindy was an integral part in helping my cousin to find inner peace through her pain and suffering. She did this all over the phone which we held to my cousin's ear as she gasped for breaths just to listen. She helped my cousin to finally let go and trust G-d, whom she never believed in before, just through speaking with Mindy or listening to Mindy over the telephone. She heard Mindy's spiritual messages when she no longer could talk due to her lungs having been filled up with fluid and cancer, and when she weighed less than 75 lbs and was cringing in pain.. Had it not been for Mindy's touching, loving and spiritual manner, I honestly don't believe my cousin would ever have passed in peace. They even said the shema together on the phone 2 days before my cousin passed on.  She let go and she let go peacefully, because of the heart and soul of Mindy Ribner. Melinda Ribner is a true gift from G-d to all of us. "  (Melinda Lowell Paltrow)
