Dr. John had a great manner and was very well structured in his responses and where he led the discussion. I was surprised and pleased at the levels of detail for a first session and he was very polite to drawany possible boundaries. I would recommend Dr. John to anyone seeking therapy to at least try his style.

Dr. Menaker was uniquely insightful. I've had experience with other therapists who seemed to just let me ramble and go nowhere, but Dr. M demonstrated understanding and empathy that I found immediately helpful. I will definitely be back!

I've been looking for a new therapist since I moved here and have gone through several, not being able to find one I liked. I met with John and immediately felt comfortable in his office. We talked, and he pinpointed exactlywhat I needed to talk about. He's a great listener and really knows his stuff.
