Kumi Eastman is crazy. I had a terrible experience seeing her for couples therapy. We went into therapy in love thinking we just needed a little help communicating. I felt she applied a different set of rules for each of us and that he rejected my concerns and told me we shouldnt discuss them. I felt he fed my wife her responses on how she was feeling and what her emotional state was. The worse thing was that I felt she pried into an area my wife wasn't comfortable with and let me take the blame for it.

Then Kumi tried to hook up with me. This [censored] is selfish .

    I am not sure what is wrong with kumi Eastman??? this lady lacked sensitivity.. And i can feel she was racist.. Once I met her, I found her to be very fake, out of touch and has no sense of cultural sensitivity... she even dare to call me CHICA?? just because my background is Spanish? That was unprofessional and disrespectful to say the least. Maybe if you are Caucasian, just maybe she can understand and relate more with you.

    It has been many months since my husband and I were subjected to Kumi Eastman therapy and I waited to write this review so I would express a fair evaluation and one that is not potentially emotionally charged. Unfortunately, the experience with kumi was so negative, the there has been no softening of my opinion. We sought long and hard for a a good solid therapist to guide my newly husband and me through the beginnings of a marriage that needed explanation, understanding, and some nurturing. Boy, were we in for a surprise!

    The 3rd session was an alarming eye opener as to Kumi Eastman practiced method of "therapy" I was berated throughout the session and yelled, yes, literally, screamed at, for not following her protocol, which translated into me not quieting down when she ordered me to. I was admonished for speaking to her in an inappropriate tone, as I sat there with tears rolling down my eyes, trying to explain my feelings and make her understand where I was coming from on a topic. I quieted myself and composed my body language to comply and tried to get a healthy check on if I was out of line. Maybe I was...I wasn't sure at that point, but even after I sat silent, I was accused of shutting down and behaving like a child. I was in between a rock a hard place. My husband, being new to any therapy, just sat and observed.

    I want to grow and learn, so I did my best to leave the office after that session with a positive outlook and try to sort out how I could have behaved more appropriately.

    The next, and final time, we saw her, the same negative experience was repeated. I WAS YELLED AT! FOR NOT RESPECTING HER SPACE, LITERALLY, AND TOLD THAT SHE MAKES THE RULES AND IS CHARGE WHILE WE ARE IN HER OFFICE. "HOW DARE I TALK OUT OF LINE THAT WAY?! THIS IS MY OFFICE AND MY RULES AND I HAVE NO RIGHT TO TALK UNLESS DONE 'PROPERLY' AND SHE WILL CONTROL THE SESSION, NOT ME!"

    I was stunned and in shock, as I tried to calmly explain how I was feeling, and interrupted throughout the entire time, being told I was doing it wrong. So, I stopped talking, and I was yelled at for being defiant. I am at a loss for words about how we were treated in her office. My husband apologized to me once we left, saying he wanted to defend me and saw how hurtful and inappropriate she was, but did not know how to properly interject. I have never been treated like this by a therapist: absolutely no compassion and utter need for authority and control in a what should be a healing session.

    It was just awful and shocking. I was apparently supposed to be complacent and obey rules that were never explained and surprisingly demanded in a therapy session. I beg you to find a therapist who will support you with kindness - I am not a delicate flower, and my husband I and I were dedicated to sorting through our issues. We were met with a woman who had a need to not just control but berate her clients in the only place available to her, for what I can only guess is a result of her own insecurities and personal issues of failure.

    Kumi Eastman is terrible person. Has no remorse for what she did to me. Refuses to apologize. Only cares about her reputation. Refuses to tell the truth and refuses to make it right. Watched her lie to my face on a daily basis as well as to my family.
