Dr. Silbert was thoughtful, kind, and insightful in helping me. In fact, I scheduled my next appointment right after ourfirst session. I’d recommend her.

There is not enough room on this page to describe what Dr. Donna Silbert has done for me. I Have beena patient of hers for over fifteen years. Without her I simply would not have made it. I was diagnosed with Bi- Polar disorder in my thirties and with her help have been able to have a productive life. Dr. Silbert was always available to me when i needed her most. My midnight calls were returned and I always felt safe. Substance abuse was a major concern and with her guidance I was able to successfully navigate my life. I have a family and with her help have been happy married for 25 years. She is understanding, she listens she seems to know more about me than I do myself. Honest , caring , thoughtful, intelligent are just some of the words I would use to describe her. I consider myself blessed that I was able to find her.

Donna has been my therapist for nearly three years now, instrumental in guiding me as I heal and come to terms with the extent of the physical and emotional abuse that has transpired behind closed doors in my family for decadesand to which I have been subjected over the course of my life, the emotional aspect of which continues to present day. Under Donna's guidance, the realizations I have reached on my own accord and with her support, I have confronted a pathological narcissistic father as well as a borderline sister with psychosis, exposing the painful truths for all external purposes to friends, family and therapists. I am now able to move on with my life, as I gradually gravitate toward sound people and healthy relationships both professionally and personally under Donna's guidance and support. That includes maintaining a precarious relationship of inter-dependency with my father as apposed to that of codependency, as I go through the paces.
