I have now been seeing Liza for a few months and I can already tell that I have made positive changesin my life. Just that statement alone is not something I could have said before working with her. I have a crazy schedule and always travel for work but Liza goes out of her way to make sure I get an appointment (or 2 during really rough weeks). She is really easy going and non judgmental. The last therapist I saw spent the whole session lecturing me about weed and basically telling me I am going to become a drug addict and almost calling me one. I have NOT felt one bit of that with Liza and find myself looking forward to going there ( it used to be dread with my other therapist), I have been messed up since the time I was a kid, simply based on the number of therapists I have had. I without a doubt can say Liza is the most intelligent and has helped me be most successful. If you are struggling, this is where you should go. And if there are ever any issues ( my insurance messed up) Liza goes beyond what I have seen of any doctor and takes care of the situation. In that particular case I could have been stuck with a huge bill but her office appealed it and I got everything covered. I work in the medical field too, and I have never met another doctor who has gone out of their way to do work that they are not required to do and is so time consuming. She has my highest recommendation.

I am someone who has been in and out of therapy over the last decade or so- recovering from various traumas and trying to cope with my own personal struggles, so I'm familiar with the process and have had different (positiveand negative) experiences with a variety of different counselors. When I first came to Liza's practice, I was looking for help with just learning some healthier coping mechanisms and hoping to better prepare myself for triggering moments/ general day-to-day anxieties. I first met with Goldie for about two months, and she was very helpful in giving me some new tools and approaches to assist my goals. I was later told by Liza that I would be switched over to a different therapist, and have been seeing Ruthie weekly ever since. I don't think I have ever felt more comfortable with a mental health counselor than with Ruthie. She is extremely receptive, perceptive, and insightful, and her perspective has been extremely eye-opening for me. With her diagnosis and treatment plan, I feel tremendously hopeful in only further continuing to grow. They have been flexible, accommodating, and helpful within their practice by means of payment and setting up appointments as well.

It was a very good experience. The office is warm, inviting and beautiful. And everyone who worked there was super helpful and kind. My therapist was Liza, and the reviews are right...she's great. I have 2 more sessions scheduled for next week and am hopeful this will help.

Starting counseling was a difficult and frightening decision for me, but Liza’s help within our first meeting and those that have come after have made approaching my own mental health easier and less like a giant hurtle.

I have never been to therapy before. As soon as I made the appointment, the Doctor called me to help me with my insurance and answer all my questions. I probably called her 5 times before we actually met. She waskind, understanding, supportive, non judgemental, and very knowledgable. I look forward to seeing her again.

I've been a patient of Liza since August. Prior to going to her, I was very against seeking help. Liza was welcoming and made me feel like I was finally in a safe space. I've seen 2 other therapists in thepast but I've never quite experienced someone as hands on like her. She keeps me on track, questions me at the right times (great probing questions that make me think!), and gives me ways on how I can improve. She's awesome and I highly recommend her.

I've seen Liza for a few months and am very happy with my treatment. She is super accommodating and kind. She worked with me so I can use my insurance properly (when they were giving me a problem) and my flexspending account. In the few months I've been with her, I have seen more progress than 18 months with my former therapist.

I was a bit nervous as it was my first time coming to therapy. The therapist was very patient and understanding. She seemed quite knowledgeable and concerned about my well being. She explained the process and what I can expect fromtherapy. She answered all my questions and I felt comfortable in the environment. There was also no wait time.

Do not go here - this is a racket and they are very unprofessional. They never sent me a receipt until I asked, and then they spelled both my name and their own contact information incorrectly. This led to huge problemswith my FSA card and I'm still dealing with the negative consequences of the one time I went here. Avoid this therapist.

I liked the atmosphere. I liked how nicely decorated the room was. I liked how inviting Liza was. I disliked that I felt like a popsicle. It was really cold in the unit. However, that was minor. It felt great toget everything off my chest and have Liza analyze my feelings. I felt she definitely made an impact on us and whether we should give this relationship another try. For now, I probably can recommend others to come see Liza for a non judgmental chat.

I am very satisfied with my visit. Liza made me feel super comfortable especially since it was very difficult to share certain things for me but I felt absolutely no judgment. Not only was she super easy to talk to sheprovided constructive criticism and feedback that I needed to start improving my mental health. I will absolutely continue seeing her.

I have been seeing Liza for about 18 months, during which time I have completely changed and am way closer to the person I want to be than when I walked into her office. I had seen 2 other therapists beforeher and could not get over the fact that they said nothing. It was like talking to a blank wall. I was happy to find that Liza was the complete opposite. She gave helpful suggestions and taught me the easiest but most effective coping skills to deal with my debilitating anxiety. In the past 18 months, we have taken breaks and I notice that about 6 weeks into me not seeing her, some of my old patterns return and I'll come in for a tune up. She definitely is hard to get an appt with, but once she takes you on as a client you have her at your full disposal. She is amazing with responding to things outside of the session. There is no question in my mind that she truly cares about me and my well being.

I have been a patient of Liza's for over 1 year. I originally came to therapy because of anxiety I had during an unhappy relationship. In this one year I have managed to get out of that relationship, lose 30 lbs,and start a career I truly love. There was a point where I was unemployed and could not afford therapy, but Liza still continued to see me for those 2 months. She is incredibly knowledgeable and really skilled at what she does. She give you techniques to use in your daily life and treats you like she is truly invested in your care.

Yelizaveta made me feel comfortable and relaxed right away. I felt like I could tell her anything with out any judgement. Since my first session, she has been determined in figuring out what my issues are and in setting me upto be successful in dealing with them. She has met with people I felt ready to bring into our sessions and have handled these interactions with intention and care. I feel I am learning more about myself since seeing Liza and would recommend her to a friend.
