What people say

Testimonial from Couple

        Violeta was warm, caring, and empathetic person. We started our sessions serious and committed, earnestly writing down what we loved about the other, pausing, counting to 10 instead of attacking each other, and doing therapy homework regularly. However, by session six or ten we lost motivation and we dropped out of therapy. We came back to therapy after a major couple crisis. Violeta gave us some useful couples therapy suggestions: use “I-statements” instead of accusations (“I feel bad when you say that” versus “You’re an idiot”), don’t take each other for granted, go out on date nights. This time around we decided to follow her suggestions. I suppose something worked. This year we’ll celebrate 33 years of marriage. Our family life has been part bliss, part hell, with lots of regular life thrown in between. We are grateful that our therapist’s wisdom sneaked past our cynicism and helped our relationship.

Testimonial from Woman Individual

        A friend introduced me to Violeta in a time of a deep personal crisis. I didn’t have any energy and desire to do anything. I knew I needed to make changes in my life, but I didn’t know what steps to take and how to help myself. I decided to try something different and called Violeta to schedule a session. Violeta helped me rediscover the strengths that I already had in order to deal with the joys, sorrows, my relationships and everyday challenges of life. During the time I have worked with Violeta I have come to appreciate her warm nature, empathy, expertise, and true dedication to her work with clients. Violeta has been extremely helpful in helping me identify and build up on my strengths. I recommend Violeta to everyone who needs therapeutic help with maintaining your home-work-emotional balance.

Testimonial from Men Individual

        I was in an abusive relationship with a woman for about 2 years. I felt lost, eroded, self-conscious. I was extremely depressed and I didn’t know what to do. A friend of mine recommended Violeta’s therapeutic services. Violeta helped me see how many events in my life has led me to that abusive relationship as well as allowed me to discover a much stronger, confident, and self-loving person within myself. She always sensed when I was struggling on my path of personal growth and making changes in my life. She knew exactly what questions to ask and offer the tools that I needed so that I could see the positive steps that I needed to take. Every time when I left her office I felt ten million times better. I truly feel that so much of the success in my personal and professional life has come from her helping me to see and realize that I am a great person who has lots to offer. I can never thank her enough for all her help.

Testimonial from Mother

        I just want to say how impressed I am at your ability to relate to all my kids. Violeta, you possess a talent in getting my two teenagers, who are all quite different, to open up. You’ve touched their lives. I was first hesitant to bring them to your office. I wasn’t sure of your abilities to relate to them and help me with their behavioral issues. In your office, my little hyper five year old daughter colored and talked with you about our issues. I couldn’t believe that she wanted to come back on the next day. My seven years old was shy and hesitant to open up to you at first and she started sharing with you as well. This made me confident in your ability to help our family function as a unit.

Testimonial from Man Individual

        I just wanted to say THANK YOU. It was through your gentle urging and encouragement to attend NA that I found the path to recovery. I am 1.5 years sober now and part of my sobriety starts everyday with prayer and meditation. I begin each day with mindful meditation. It helps me relax and center myself. I just wanted to tell you that I am doing very well and we as a family are doing very well. I want to thank you because it was through your gentle urging that I recognized I am an addict and I need help. Your therapy sessions and the NA meetings helped me heal from the inside out. THANK YOU!

Testimonial from Another mother

        I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the moral support and encouragement. You have helped my daughter and our whole family tremendously. What we have been going through with her eating disorder is very, very difficult, but every time when she and I see you, we always come away with positive feelings, and this is VERY, VERY important for my whole family right now. Thank you for all your hard work. You are a blessing in our life.
