“I thought “Psychology of Money” was and outstanding class. I was looking for a house to buy and I was interested in talking to Ilya about timing -pinpointing the best time to make a low-bid offer. Through the class, I determined the best time to make the offer, and I purchased my second house for the offer I made.”

I attended Ilya Teplisky’s class, Mid Career Life Change, in Richmond, CA. in 2005, while I was working as a Contract Specialist for UC Berkeley. The class was very interesting, novel and timely, and I learned many things about myself. I found Ilya to be a very good teacher and well liked by the students.  I was most impressed that the material was original, unique and very easy to work with.  I enjoyed the class so much that I signed up for two more of his classes, Psychology of Money and Psychology of Investing, both of which were excellent.

When I was going to purchase a home, Mr Teplisky cautioned that house prices would certainly go down.  I bought anyways, and the escrow closed just a few weeks before the Financial Meltdown in August 2008.  The price of my house fell almost 40% in the next year and a half and is still down about 20% from my purchase price!

Ilya Teplitsky, LMFT will likely tell you things you may never hear anywhere else. He has a gift for expressing painful truths in a way that can be deeply funny, as well as a keen sense for pointing out the less-obvious absurdities of life in a way that you will not forget. Ilya is gifted in ways that after 8 years of knowing him, I still cannot fathom. All I know is that when I have sought his advice, he has never let me down. He has provided a clarity that I have not been able to find on my own, nor with any other therapist or financial adviser. The fact that he saved me nearly $50,000 or more by predicting the collapse of 2007/2008, is amazing. The fact that I can trust him completely to look out for my best interests, to help me uncover my purpose in life, and to help guide me toward my destiny, is priceless.

Most of us have few if any people in our lives who can help guide us toward our greater destiny, especially if the path will be difficult. After meeting with Ilya, I always feel a greater sense of possibility and courage. I feel his support as I begin to take the brave steps necessary to create the life that I am meant to live. Ilya’s books (Discover Your Life Purpose, The Psychology of Money, and Mid-Life Career Change) provide insight into topics not commonly discussed. His observations on life – on my life – are unique and astute, and make me feel less alone as I go forth. Thank you Ilya. You are a gift in my life and I will always remember and be grateful to you.”

Ilya is able to quickly and concisely evaluate the natural tendencies and innate direction of the life of an individual using astrological references found on their personal birth map. His insights and overview were both aligned with my own observation and intuition , and supportive and useful in providing guidance for me to examine future possibilities in the extensive world of choice. I enjoyed our active dialogue and interesting questions that he proposed to me and feel his service was a light for my own process of seeing, accepting, reflecting and consciously moving forward in my life.
