Spencer P. Tremblay, MSA


I am a breadwinner of a family of 5. My family has been very conscious of this pandemic and prudent in trying to avoid the virus. But just the same as many families this summer, COVID made it into our house. My wife and I and our teenage son all tested positive. Luckily my two young children did not contract the virus. I had it the worst, losing 19 pounds in 10 days, fevers, loss of taste and smell, and serious fatigue. We isolated for 3 weeks and were all healthy, but the lasting effects of the virus are more than just a physical strain on your immune system. Physical strain and fatigue, isolation, missing work, worry about infecting the others in your life, the stigma attached to being “the guy/family” with the virus and the guilt associated with having your family go through something like that causes major stress and trauma in life. The stress causes lasting fatigue, which causes more stress, and the trauma cycle goes on and on for much longer than the isolation and virus physically last. I worked with Joe Schechtman to break this vicious cycle a few weeks after the virus was out of our home. Joe helped me get through not just the lasting physical effects of the virus but the mental trauma that perpetuates these “symptoms”. Joe’s methods are outside the box and much different than the traditional ideas of “therapy”. He works on understanding on how to use your brain effectively to beat back the trauma and mental issues that make COVID so much more than just a virus. With just a few sessions I was able to break the cycle, getting rid of the nasty fatigue that plagued me for months and even gaining back weight and my sense of taste and smell. We all know COVID is dangerous physically, but what you don’t hear on TV is the danger of the mental trauma the virus wreaks on your life after you are “healthy”. For anyone who has had the unfortunate experience of contracting COVID, I would recommend speaking with Joe. With this pandemic we are all redefining the meaning of “normal”. Joe will help you define “normal” for yourself by making you feel exactly that…. like yourself again.

I completed Joe’s program and can honestly say it changed and improved my personal and professional life! He is an amazing coach. He introduced and taught me how to use all four quadrants of my brain.  Now I am more confident, effective, efficient with minimal stress and more productive.  Frankly I am happier and a better person because of Joe through my sessions with him.

Joe is a fantastic coach allowing me to explore my emotions, working style, creativity and energy. I have honed to what I might call “perfection” and am organizing my day according to what I do best at what time, clearly setting my goals, understanding my energy and emotions and finally accomplishing my goals and more! Nothing better than that!

Joseph DeAngelis

I hired Joe because I had heard numerous testimonials about Joe’s keen ability to evaluate a business and the personalities involved in a relatively short period of time. I completed Joe’s course and employed his strategies at my business. I am happy to say that my staff is much more productive, effective and efficient than ever and I don’t have anywhere near the level of stress that I had prior to employing Joe. Joseph J.

Sometimes business and professional challenges keep you up at night. Especially for attorneys engaged in the adversarial process, the legal profession can be a high stress occupation that adversely affects physical and mental health, as well as professional effectiveness. Joseph Schechtman’s 30 years of studying the brain and his business coaching abilities have helped me learn how to minimize stress and maximize efficiency and effectiveness. He has not only helped me become a more successful litigator, he has also worked with my staff to help me build a high performance legal team. Because of Joe, I am a more successful business owner.

Jose Duarte, Principal English High School Boston Public Schools, MA

Joe is an extremely talented trainer. He has been an asset in developing our leadership team, facilitating high-performance teams throughout the school and expanding our knowledge of brain-compatible curriculum. Teachers are using his strategies in almost every class.

Robert S. Dubik – Superintendent, Cazenovia School District

I have worked with Mr. Schechtman for the past fourteen years as Superintendent. Joe has great insights into working with challenging boards, parents, and staff. He has guided me through the stressful times keeping me both mentally and physically healthy and focused. His ability to work with parents/teachers of autistic children is unparalleled to any program available to schools. Working with Joe is a must for all superintendents, boards, and special education departments.

Lorry Leigh Belhumeur, PH.D. CEO of Western Youth Services

You don’t have to know “how” he does it, just know that it works. Joe’s technique was a very healing experience and the finishing touch for overcoming years old negative thinking associated with past trauma. If you continue to experience obstacles related to your own self-talk, I highly recommend working with Joe to remove them once and for all.

Charisse Sisou

Joseph is an absolute treasure. Personable and easy to work with, he is profoundly skilled at getting to the crux of the issues holding you back, quickly and effortlessly. His intuition will leave you breathless. He then gives you tangible exercises, in-session and between them, designed to release and heal the residue of trauma, negative beliefs and triggers, that are often the sole barrier between us and success. As a bonus, he’ll have you laughing as you do it! I can’t recommend him highly enough.

Fontella Moody – Owner, State Farm Insurance Agent

I am thrilled to recommend Joe for business and personal development. I am amazed at how quickly he was able to help me lower my stress levels and be more effective in my business. I was so impressed, that I hired him to work with my entire team and they loved him. I am looking forward to huge increases in sales and income.

Michelle Gonzalez – MPH, former partner and consultant, New Commons, Inc .

My company hired Joseph Schechtman for an Effective Team Building process. This involved facilitating an outcomes based transition of team members into positions that involved more responsibility and to create a 9-month exit plan for me, as one of the partners. As you can image this was extremely complex work that engaged all employees as well as partners of the firm. It was also a process that wasn’t linear—people come with lots of bias and fears. Joseph helped us as a firm to assess our strengths, when those strengths were not serving the team or organization, and help us with all team members to more successfully face change. Overall, the firm made a lot of changes in personnel; aligning members into job functions that better suited their brain functions and or helping them find new work. I left the organization in 2012 confident that the team was in a better place, that those who worked with Joseph better understood their primary way of working and how to adapt to other ways of using their brains in a ‘whole way’. I highly recommend Josephs straightforward and enlightening tools to get teams to a better place. It will take time, but the return on investment– happier, collaborative, and more balanced team members–is worth it.”

Sue Morin – Morin Therapy

I met with Joe Schechtman for six one-hour sessions. Joe made every penny and every minute of that investment worth my while. I have always functioned using only half my brain. With the tools that Joe uses through his counseling, coaching, and energy training, he was able to teach me how to utilize all four quadrants of my brain, in addition, he helped me work through trauma that even I did not know was still affecting my life. Anybody who uses the services Joe offers will be utterly amazed at his uncanny ability to tap into your energy field and understand your strengths and weaknesses better than you do. I would recommend Joe to anybody, who wants to learn how to utilize their full brain, become a better person and more successful in business, and their personal life, as well as, learn more about themselves.

Timothy M. Sweet, Esq. -The Law Offices of Timothy M. Sweet, LLC

I sought Mr. Schechtman’s advice in assessing the stresses of my professional and personal lives and was able to learn from his coaching to identify, target, and work through those stress triggers so that I can lead a more efficient, more successful, more empathetic life. I am a better attorney and person for having known and worked with him.

Kathleen Melton

It is not easy for me to put into words the impact Joe has had on my life. To people I care about, I say that he helped me get out of a dark place in ways that you need to experience to fully understand.

I met Joe through a friend’s recommendation. I had been seeing a psychiatrist to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder after I was burned in a fire. I had been suffering from lack of sleep, physical pain and debilitating anxiety without any signs of relief after months of therapy. Joe has the ability to reach you on another level; to heal not only on the surface but truly down to the root of an ailment; physical, mental or a combination of the two.

Today I am happy, I sleep well, have no anxiety or pain, and I love my life. I can’t thank him enough.

Susan C. Boone – Relationship Expert | Women’s Coaching | Business Coach | Professional Coaching | Keynote Speaker

When Joe Schechtman told me what he did, I knew he was the one for me! He is off the charts! What a beautiful and masterful soul he is!

When we started working together, I had 1.2 billion negative triggers ( a word, a thought, or a feeling), and my stress, on a scale of one to ten, was a ten. I had experienced several significant traumas in my life: my dad’s suicide, a miscarriage, my daughters near death during birth, and divorce. For a period of time, I couldn’t even speak fluidly. After five sessions with Joe, I had zero negative triggers and zero stress.

Additionally, he told me that only five percent of the population is able to
naturally use all four quadrants of their brain. Now, I am able to do that– my brain is working well and so is my life.

I highly recommend Joe Schechtman!

Sandy Parker – Chief Encouragement Officer / Marketing

Joseph Schechtman was referred to me by a business coach. I was so inspired by my first conversation with Joe, that I put my business coaching on hold until I’d finished my sessions with Joe. After all, why build a house or business on shifting sand? Joe is also a business coach. While there are numerous coaches who may be able to help you grow a business, Joe is the only business coach I found that could also help me resolve any personal issues that would interfere or compromise my performance on the job. One of his specialties is helping people eliminate their stress which affects every step along the way.

I thought it was a smart move to neutralize the trauma and stress that was pulling my energy away from the progress I was wanting. Little did I know what that outcome would be. As life has gone on during my nearly 60 years as a high driving, make it happen type person, I accumulated so much stress that Joe said he was surprised I hadn’t develop immune system problems. “Oh that?” I said. “I’ve been taking medicine for that for 19 years.” On top of that, add my need for overachiever status and you have a stress dynamic that is compromising my life. It’s not good for my health, my work, or my husband.

Think of the value of this. Where there were scratches on my soul’s hard drive, we neutralized. Where there were “scars” of real trauma, we healed, forgave, and restored. When my brain was off the charts on the right side where creativity and compassion live, that was not so on the left side. Joe is able to help people become whole brain thinkers and helped me expand my natural gifts for left brain thinking also. This is where decisions are made and processes are in place. No wonder I was having a hard time making decisions on my next career move and completing my daily priorities.

Not only did Joe’s work accelerate my brainpower, but he no doubt added years to my life, joy to my work, and clear thinking to my new career design. There is no telling how long it would’ve taken without Joe’s involvement. So in that regard it was one of the best cash investments I ever made.

Last but certainly not least, it’s hard to think of me first. I’m a natural caring person. But now I can save the world and save myself! For Joe: “I’m so grateful for you and the gifts you have to soothe and repair the wounded soul!

Tom Fischer – Nurse Supervisor at Hippocrates Health Institute

Joe is an outstanding energy healer and trauma expert. He is very skilled at stress reduction improving my performance at work and the quality of my personal life. He helps to develop one’s learning capacity using brain dominance integration and other techniques. He can work with clients long-distance. I am a survivor of stage IV brain cancer. Joe taught me about the cancer personality which has helped me understand what I can do to keep cancer in my past. He helped me improve the quality of my sleep and my energy. Now I am at peace with my cancer and looking forward to a happy future.

Pam Formosa – CoFounder of Brain Fit Academy, Inc

My business partner and, long time friend/colleague and I contacted Joe when we first incorporated. It was when we combined finances that all our own “baggage” came up. We did not anticipate any of this as we got along very well. As Joe would say, we both got triggered from past events and relationships and if we wanted a successful business, we would need to clear our baggage first.
It was very difficult and humbling to hear as we both worked so hard to get where we were.
That said, we spend about 6 months working with Joe. He was amazingly straightforward and was able to pin point exactly where the blocks were and move us through. Outside of our appointments, both of us did our homework religiously and saw results. Thanks Joe. Christina and I are working together well with all its moving parts, the business is booming and we are happier than ever.
