    I just wanted to thank you for all that you have helped me overcome this year and all the wonderful tools you have provided me with to cope with my difficulties. Ever since I started the chants and mantras my life is finally taking a turn for the better, I have more abundance in my friendships, family and soon to come money. Im stepping in the right direction.

  • Roselle Park, NJ Legal Guardian of Adolescent

    As a family member and a patient, therapy has helped us see problems and issues more clearly in a better light. Therapy is beneficial we get more insight and have learned how to approach issues and problems in different ways. Resolutions can come!!! We are all works in progress. Meredith always sees us in a timely manner and is easy to talk to.

  • Father of Adolescent client Millington, NJ

    It has helped clarify things and let me see a different perspective from my daughter’s point of view. Meredith is very perceptive and patient. This is the only waiting room I know of with coffee and snacks and I love the Bulletin board with pithy sayings.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Advise for a patient seeking a therapist comes down to the right fit. Therapy is a sometimes intense and long lasting relationship, so there needs to be a high comfort level. The patient needs to implicitly trust the therapy and the process, so my recommendation is to not settle until you find that level of trust and comfort. Try several therapists if you need and most of time you will know when you have found the right person.
