I recommend Paul Nussbaum for personal and family counseling as well as crisis management services. Paul’s special situation enables him to be perceptive and sensitive to the subtle yet critical needs of clients through face-to-face, online, and telephonic therapy sessions. I have known Paul for over 30 years and find his counsel relevant, objective, and life changing. Paul has trained for this career for 25+ years in a unique manner and under particularly trying circumstances. As a USC graduate with his Masters in Social Work, Paul has both academic training as well as real world experience in assisting others. Paul’s daily discipline and focus over the last 20 years enable him to counsel others to improve their situation regardless of where they are in life’s journey. Paul is one of the finest and most accomplished professionals I know. Paul’s dedication and personal effort to assist clients far exceed standard practice and expectations.

For 25 years I have been a member of the national board of directors of the group that has become the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. I have worked with Paul for 20 years and he has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for spinal cord injury research. Paul has always been the consumate professional. He has always proven to be dependable, reliable, and has at all times maintained complete confidentiality when dealing with sensitive issues regarding neurological research.
Mark Lewis, MBA, California State University at Long Beach
Paul Nussbaum has provided invaluable support to me in managing my corporate training business here in Tokyo. He has given insightful advice on numerous personnel matters involving issues such as motivation and reprimands, which has helped me resolve and often avoid serious problems. Additionally, Paul has provided the services of a "personal coach," acting as a sounding board and counseling me on issues that have helped me persevere and even triumph in some very difficult times. Mr. Nussbaum's integrity and level-headed advice should prove invaluable to anyone attempting to work through the complex interpersonal and moral issues. I would welcome any inquiry regarding the high quality of support Mr. Nussbaum is very capable of providing.
Shelley Cohen, M.S.W., University of Southern California
I was a classmate of Paul Nussbaum at the University of Southern California. Getting into USC is a challenge as well as graduating from the University,. Academically, the standards are high but what is most important is how one performs in the field as a therapist. I can tell you from knowing Paul and seeing his performance reports in the field, that he received the highest evaluation possible to obtain. Grades are one thing, but performance in the field as a clinician is what USC is looking for before one can graduate with their MSW. Without hesitation I recommend Paul Nussbaum as a professional when it comes to helping people in resolving their life problems.
Jill Gottlieb, M.S.W., University of Southern California
I am writing on behalf of Paul Nussbaum, a fellow colleague. In Mr. Nussbaum’s capacity as a clinical social worker, I know him to be bright, hard working and dependable. He demonstrates a high level of involvement with his clients, and is always responsive to their individual needs. He exhibits a quality of professionalism and expertise that is stellar. His clinical skills are sound, and his ability to communicate is excellent. He has the ability to work amongst a multi-disciplinary team, and is well liked. His work has always exemplified a high level of knowledge, as well as the psychodynamics of any case at hand. He presents as a sensitive and empathic person, as evidenced by the connections he easily makes. Mr. Nussbaum is surely an asset to any program or agency with which he might be involved.
Dr. David Viscott, M.D., Dartmouth, Tufts University
I strongly recommend Paul Nussbaum. He has an understanding of stress acquired from the freeway shooting that would provide great immeasurable psychiatric benefits to others in their own recovery process. He is supportive and offers an exceptional beneficial reinforcement to the process of resocialization and will encourage individuals to strive even more diligently to recover from their emotional trauma.

I recommend Paul Nussbaum for personal and family counseling as well as crisis management services. I have had the opportunity to work with Paul as one of his physical therapists. He is extremely hard working and committed to his health and wellness on a level I have never seen. He is also an incredible voice and advocate for the spinal injured population. He has an ability to communicate difficult and complex principles to others with spinal injuries and counsel from his experiences while being caring and the utmost professional. Paul Nussbaum is someone I would love to work with on an interdisciplinary team in any rehabilitation setting. His education, clinical skills, and own personal experiences make him a great candidate to help anyone resolve any life problem.
