"I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Gindy. It's clear that she not only cares about you as a client, but as 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 started meeting 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!"
"I never thought I would be the type of person to seek out therapy. But my sleep issues were getting so bad, I didn't know where else to turn. I was getting a few hours of broken sleep every night. And I was beginning to dread going to sleep because I knew it was going to be another night of tossing and turning. Finally, I went for it and make an appointment with Dr. Gindy. I could tell right away that she was very knowledgeable about sleep and was able to determine what my problem areas were quickly. In a matter of weeks, I was sleeping better than I had in years. And the results have lasted long after we finished meeting. Definitely check her out- she's a true professional and great at what she does!"
