From Our Clients

Farzad

My partner and I used Jasmine Sundri as our couples therapist between February - May 2019. I really cannot stress how much she has helped us grow as individuals and in our marriage during those months. Jasmine gave us concrete, cognitive based therapeutic solutions and exercises to work through some significant long-term issues we had been unable to resolve over our six year relationship. She mainly helped us start listening to each other again and our relationship is immensely better for it. I'd recommend her wholeheartedly to others in similar situations, thanks a lot Jasmine!

Maria

My family was lucky to find Christina Jeffrey, she was an integral part of our healing. We had many facets to the issues we were dealing with and she managed to separate and work on each one. She was reassuring, understanding, and most of all insightful. She made us feel comfortable enough to open up, especially for those of us that hadn't experienced therapy in the past and for those of us who had and were avoiding it. I could write a book describing all the ways she helped us, but in short we would never have gotten past our issues without her. I highly recommend her - she is truly a caring person and very knowledgeable in her field.

Don

I had the pleasure of working with Aaron. He's professional, patient, understanding, and helpful. He has quite a meditative, nonjudgmental approach to therapy - in the sense that not only is he nonjudgmental as a therapist, but he encourages you not to be judgmental with your own thoughts as you approach your challenges. Having him listen, and hearing his thoughts about my concerns have been instrumental in ensuring I'm living my best life. You're the man, Aaron.

Priscella

I have worked with Benjamin for around a year or more. And it's always great to go see him. I always have great therapy sessions and they have been helping me through life always.

Charlotte

It is difficult to put into words how grateful I am for Rachel Landman. She has helped me change my life for the better and continues to help me learn the tools I need to grow into the person I'd like to be. I can't recommend Rachel enough to anyone who is seeking a therapist who is kind, insightful, genuine, authentic, extremely intelligent, and truly just outstanding at their job. It shows that Rachel cares deeply for the betterment of her clients and goes above and beyond what I ever wanted in a therapist. My only regret is I didn't start going to her sooner.

Korey

I worked with Diana and from being her client I can certainly say she seems to genuinely care. She has helped me with issues and concerns I've been struggling with for some time and is always flexible and understanding. This was a big factor for me as rigidity in a clinician is something I don't tend to do well with. I've been in therapy before but I feel I've made much more progress here.

Simedar

I've bounced around from different therapists for years and am very pleased with my experience at Douglas Psychotherapy. Michelle Hong is amazing and so helpful and light! I look forward to our sessions every week and feel confident that she can help guide me through the toughest times.

James

I've been working with one of your wonderful therapists, Jordan Rands, for a couple months now. He has been a kind, thorough, and thoughtful presence as I start my therapy process - could not have asked for better.

JB

I am delighted to recommend Paige. I have had an exceptionally difficult time through a variety of security-related anxieties that these troubling times have brought. And she helped me become much more confident, independent and willing to ensure that I can become more resilient. I have no doubts she will have an amazing career and help so many people improve on what is one of the most important issues of today's times.

Introduction to Interpersonal Effectiveness

Thursday Time: 3:00 pm Jessica Hedison

This group aims to give an introduction to Interpersonal Effectiveness, a key component in DBT and one used to build and maintain relationships. This group is not meant to be a comprehensive DBT group as it is focused only on the skill of interpersonal effectiveness and does not look in depth at the other three skills of DBT. It is instead intended to create an understanding and interest in this specific skill so that clients who may struggle with interpersonal relationships can

have a space to share, learn, and grow their confidence and ability to create and foster meaningful relationships.
