I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Gindy. It's clear that she not only cares about you as a client, butas a whole person. When I first walked into her office, my problems felt so heavy as though they were weighing me down. After each session, the load felt lighter and much more manageable. She helped me address problems and set goals for myself that I never thought I could achieve. Meeting with her has completely changed my perspective and I don't think that I could ever go back to the way I felt before. Many thanks!

Dr. Gindy is a skilled professional. She is warm, compassionate, and you can tell that she truly cares. When I startedmeeting with her, I felt pretty depressed and anxious. I spent most of my time at home, and felt very nervous in crowds of people. She helped me get back to my life and to change a lot of negative thoughts that I had about myself and others. When I feel anxious now, I know that I can handle it by using the tools that we have practiced together. Thank you Dr. Gindy!

About Sylvia Gindy

Dr. Sylvia Gindy is a Clinical Psychologist who specializes in treating anxiety disorders including Panic, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety, and more. Over her years of clinical experience, she has become skilled in a number of treatment modalities including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Evidenced-Based Psychotherapies for individuals who have experienced traumatic events. As an adjunct to specializing in Anxiety disorders, Dr. Gindy is an expert at treating people with problematic sleep. She utilizes evidence-based strategies, supported by science, to help individuals improve their sleep over the course of several sessions. "Every major physiological system in your body and every operation of the mind is incredibly reliant on sleep. These symptoms are significantly enhanced when you are receiving good sleep, and markedly impaired when you don’t. Stress and anxiety can contribute to sleep problems, and worsen existing ones. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I work with my clients to find out exactly what factors are interfering with their sleep, and introduce practical tools that allow them to excel in various aspects of their lives." **Please note that booking times, especially over one week in advance, are subject to constant change and may not be accurate.**

I have had sleep issues for many years and I have literally tried everything under the sun. I was skeptical about therapy and about whether or not it could be helpful at all. After a few sessions with Dr. Gindy, Inoticed great results. I went from sleeping about 5 hours a night to about 7.5 hours each night! Also, the quality of my sleep has improved dramatically. I highly recommend meeting with her as her tips and strategies really worked!

Dr. Gindy has been a lifesaver for me. I had paralyzing anxiety in many areas of my life. From driving, to go to work, to interacting with new people - she taught me many skills for managing my anxiety. Most importantly,she helped me gain acceptance for all things that are outside of my control. She has been a tremendous help to me and I finally feel like I can manage many different things that life can throw your way.
