Amongst the myriad of reasons I’d most highly, and without reservation, recommend this organization to assist you with any of your mental health needs, the most important and compelling is the empathy and true compassion shown by Belina Fruitman, the lead therapist. From her first moment of interaction with you, Belina radiates a genuine concern and sincere desire to know and help you. She never passes judgement, and yet, at the same time, Belina will not coddle clients to appease them. Rather, Belina works to guide them to confront their issues head-on, in a gentle, yet direct and proactive way. Providing many helpful strategies, exercises and research readings, Belina leads her clients through their deepest darkness back into their own light of renewed hope. Belina truly guides woman who have lost theur path back onto it, and back on their the road to their own recovery.
This is a woman who is not only an expert in her field and a consummate professional, but also, and most importantly, she is a woman who is one of those rare people who truly cares about her clients and seeks to cultivate them as a whole person, encouraging them to live to their highest potential. As evidence of this, Belina will work to accommodate her clients’ financial as well as schedule needs, often working on a sliding scale, allowing payment plans and scheduling clients for evening appointments as needed. She’s happy to make you copies and lend you materials. She’s never too busy to help a client in need. I’ve seen over 6 different therapists in the past 16 years, and Belina is, by far, the best there is. This is the place to go if you need any help for any area of your life. Anywhere and anyone else pales in comparison. You’ll never regret making a call and scheduling an appointment with Belina. She is a literal life savor to whom I’ll forever be grateful.
