From Grateful Patient
I really can’t tell you all enough about what this program has done for me! I am almost scared to stop but it’s just because this has been such a safe and helpful place to share and learn and I never expected to get what I have out of a virtual session and group session. And then meeting the other patients and sharing experiences, thoughts, feelings, and advice is just truly rewarding. For some reason, I’ve been jaded that any kind of helpful counseling needs to be individual and in person. I’ve gotten more out of this than I did in over 13 months with another practice. I’ve taken extensive notes from our sessions and have been putting those into a word document so I can refer back to the different topics if I find myself struggling. I am soooo freakin’ grateful that Sheppard Pratt recommended you all and each of you has been amazing as counselors.
I am so grateful for the DBT program and individual counseling that your organization provides. My teen daughter was really struggling with depression and anxiety, leading to self-harm. The attention, information, skills, support and services she receives there has been incredible. After a few months, I’ve seen such a positive difference in her. She is more communicative, confident, willing to use and practice her coping skills…overall, she’s happier and healthier! She can identify when she needs extra help, and she reaches out now. The family DBT classes are also extremely helpful, for us as parents, to learn along side her, about what’s she’s going through and how we can best support her in parallel. I know this is a long journey, for all of us, but knowing we have all the support and services here, I am very hopeful for our future! Thank you for being there!
