Kind words from our clients
As a patient of my therapist going on eight years now, it is not hyperbolic to say that she has ushered a major (and lasting) shift in my life’s trajectory.
Our work together has yielded an agency in me which has opened up a lot of doors in the world- generally making things easier, more enjoyable, and more rewarding. I have learned to embrace the complexities in myself and in others with increased empathy and patience; to be a better listener internally and externally. As a result of this continued practice, I feel that I am a more present, more fully-realized man and all around better human being. My therapist’s dedication to her craft is matched with a deep humanism and generosity that still frequently amazes me. She is truly one of those special, magical people I feel lucky to have in my life and to whom I will always feel indebted for the gift she has given me: helping me live more closely to my authentic self.
My therapist has helped me view my mental health, not as a problem I can solve overnight but a challenge I can and should take on holistically.
Through her treatment, I’ve been able to come to my own conclusions, at which point my therapist works with me to set appropriate goals and paths to follow to better my mental health. Her balance of candor and professionalism makes for such a productive patient-doctor relationship that can and does foster growth. And by making herself available through multiple platforms such as FaceTime, email, and text message, she shows that therapy isn’t confined to hour-long office sessions and that she’s always there.
My therapist provided me with support and guidance during stressful transitions in my life.
She helped me to manage my feelings of anxiety and gain confidence in myself. By using Cognitive Behavioral techniques in addition to mindfulness techniques that Dr. Cohen taught me, I became aware of how my body was reacting to the negative thoughts I was having and learned how to cope during times of stress.
Thank you for lifting this huge weight from my chest! I walked around for a couple of hours just breathing deeply from my belly!
It was just happening – I wasn’t forcing it! I guess that’s what my body wanted! My mind is a little quieter! This happened to me once before after 1.5hr of body work! You did it with one sentence from across the room! Amazing! I feel lighter, happier and have enjoyed the daily tasks I had to perform (or at least not dreaded and hated them). I have regained some of my compassion! I feel I can handle more! Thank you! You have no idea what a difference you can make in someone’s life! I wish I had scheduled this appointment weeks ago!
I was a severely anxious child when I met my therapist at 11 years old. I had been born anxious and got worse by the year – it dominated my life. I had no social skills, I couldn’t leave my parents, I went to the school nurse every single day, I was scared of anything new or different and I had constant panic attacks.
My parents were considering medication. I worked with my therapist and she taught me life skills and how to depend on myself to get through this. Now, I am a fully functioning adult with almost zero outward signs of anxiety. I had a normal high school experience, I went to college, I’ve traveled to different parts of the world and I constantly go out of my comfort zone and face my fears. I’ve been living with my therapist’s teachings for almost two decades now. With no exaggeration, she completely and utterly changed my life – and this was her first years of practice. I can’t even imagine the good she does for people now.
She is literally the best!
She has changed my life! I am forever grateful to have met my therapist.
The amount of change I have made is mind-blowing.
I was in therapy for years and I never made these kind of changes I made with Dr Cohen and The Center for CBT in New York City. I am not the only one who notices I am calmer. My co-worker came over to me and said I seemed totally different! They were right!
When I first met my therapist, I was a young woman adrift. I was stuck in an abusive relationship, working in an industry I hated, and living with neither self-compassion nor a sense of purpose. Her presence in my life has been transformative.
Guided by my therapist’s deep wisdom, her gentle encouragement, and her infinite compassion, I opened my heart to the man who is now my husband, I found the courage to pursue the career I’d dreamt of since childhood, and perhaps most incredibly, I began to feel comfortable in my own skin. Later, my therapist supported me through healing from my son’s traumatic birth so that I was able to have a second baby, something I’m not sure I would have otherwise found the strength to do. Working with her has been, and continues to be, an incomparable gift.
