Some Comments from Our Patients
"Two years ago, my life started unraveling. My stomach was off, I lost my appetite, and I was having problems sleeping. In short, years of stress and anxiety had taken their toll, and I was a mess. I started researching local therapists. Having heard of mindfulness and CBT, I contacted Cognitive Behavioral Psychologists of NJ and started seeing a terrific therapist who helped me change the way I react to life's many stresses. Instead of internalizing, ruminating, and silently suffering, I now take a deep breath and respond to the issue at hand directly and calmly. I also practice mindfulness all day — every day. It has helped me in my marriage, my job, and my all around well-being. Learning and practicing mindfulness ... has changed my life in the most positive way."

"I don't think there are enough words to describe how grateful I am for all that you have done for me and taught me. I truly feel that without you, I wouldn't have made it so far because I would have let my anxiety, fear and worry hold me back.... you truly practice with your heart and I just wanted you to know that it is noticed and definitely appreciated. Thank you for making me see the great person I can be and for giving me the tools to get through every panic attack without falling apart. I will forever be grateful and in my eyes, you were and still are one of my guardian angels. Thank you again for everything!!"
The R. Family
"Our 17 year old daughter came to see one of the doctors at Cognitive Behavioral Psychologists of NJ after having received therapy at another facility for over a year. This Cognitive Behavioral approach worked very well with her, and it was tremendously helpful that we, as a family, were part of the process. We are so very grateful for this help and expertise."
"I wanted to seek help for the constant, debilitating anxiety I was dealing with on a daily basis. I first tried a few therapists nearby home but wasn't satisfied with their approach. I learned about CBT and decided to seek out experts on the subject. I am so grateful to have found a doctor at Cognitive Behavioral Psychologists of NJ. Continuously throughout my time here they provided me with insights and practices to live a more satisfying, balanced life. Each day I think it is the smartest thing I've ever done."
"I really liked several previous therapists I had seen, and they helped me to understand myself, but my severe OCD and depression didn't get any better until I saw a therapist at Cognitive Behavioral Psychologists of NJ."
"Simply stated, working with one of the therapists at Cognitive Behavioral Psychologists of New Jersey has given me my life back. Before I began CBT therapy with my doctor I felt as though anxiety and panic had consumed my life. In an effort to get better I read countless self-help books and sought therapy with numerous "anxiety specialists." Nothing helped. As years passed, the anxiety flourished as my world diminished. I avoided more and more places that I had once enjoyed. I felt isolated, depressed and utterly hopeless. I was convinced I would never live a "normal" life. I was wrong.
"Starting CBT was scary. I did not know what to expect or if I could do it. My doctor at Cognitive Behavioral Psychologists of New Jersey worked with me at the exact level I could handle. This doctor is easy to talk to and never judgmental. The doctor will answer your questions patiently. With the doctor's guidance, I soon started to notice that I was less anxious in situations that had been big anxiety triggers for me. Slowly and steadily my world opened up. I went from being nearly housebound to socializing, shopping, driving long distances, and countless other things I had not been able to do in years. I have even started my own business. As we continue working together, my marriage and family relationships have improved in ways I never expected. Though I did not think it possible, I can honestly say I no longer have an anxiety disorder.

"I was a lifelong insomniac. My earliest memories of lying sleepless go all the way back to overnight camp when I was ten years old. My insomniac identity ran so deep that my college roommate shocked me with her observation that within the first minute of meeting new people I let them know I suffered from its curse. For as long as I can remember I've been searching for answers, understanding, compassion the cure.
"I tried relaxation techniques, meditation, yoga, intensive exercise, herbal supplements, and of course, sleeping pills of all varieties. Here and there I experienced short stretches of idyllic sleep that might last a week or two, but then I was back to square one again.
"I had to try something different, so I made a call to one of the doctors at Cognitive Behavioral Psychologists of NJ, a well-regarded cognitive behavioral therapist recommended by my psychologist sister-in-law. I had serious doubts, as I was sure I knew what the doctor was going to tell me. I had read extensively about the cognitive behavioral approach toward changing behaviors and beliefs, and had already experimented with many of its tenets.
"But I had reached the point of desperation. I showed up at my first appointment loaded with notes and skepticism. The doctor asked me to share my thoughts, fears, and concerns, and it felt good to get it all out.
"We met weekly to discuss my progress, or lack thereof. I worked hard and as I started to experience success, I began to look forward to the nightly opportunity to rest my mind and body. I noticed I was getting tired at the appointed time and shockingly, was starting to happily anticipate as opposed to dread getting into bed.
"We had six sessions together. My sleep started to improve after just three sessions and has continued to do so ever since. I'm astounded that this life-changing phenomenon occurred within a matter of weeks.
"I have a certain trust in myself that wasn't there before. Perhaps it takes a talented therapist to help unlock and unblock us so that our healthier selves can emerge."
