What Our Patients Are Saying...
I was at a loss as to how to help my daughter. She was so emotional, didn’t want to go to school, just didn’t seem to fit in. Her sessions with Danielle have helped her confidence a lot. She also goes to the teen group and it has shown her that she is not alone – there are other teens facing similar issues. Just knowing that has made her relaxed and more able to cope with her anxiety and her fear of school. The coping skills she has learned have been really helpful.
My drinking finally became a problem I couldn’t ignore. Danielle has given me the support and skills to remain sober. I see her for individual sessions – which are really helpful – and go to the recovery group where I’ve found others like me who I can learn from. I didn’t want to attend any kind of group therapy because I was scared of what kind of people would be there, but it turns out they’re just like me….they have a job and a family and struggle with issues very similar to mine.
I’ve been to lots of therapists but I’m really impressed with Danielle. She is very smart and keeps our sessions on track. I’ve been learning coping skills, setting goals, and the things she’s taught me actually work! I feel much more in control and more hopeful than I have in a long time.
We had tried everything to help our son – in patient, out patient, a variety of doctors and therapists. Then we found Advantage and we have been so impressed by everyone’s caring attitude. They really go out of their way to make sure you’re comfortable and have the best therapists and doctors. Danielle has really helped me and I can’t speak highly enough about her and her approach.
