"When I first saw you, I was at the point in my life in which I could not see a happy future or an existence without pain and an eating disorder. Now I see the world ahead of me filled with sparkles , joy and possibility. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me to help myself. You saved my life and I am forever grateful. I have grown incredibly as a person and I am confident that I will succeed and with each success I will think of you. Anyone who is placed in your care in my opinion is lucky they have the best and a great chance to succeed." - 21 Year Old Female
"I really just wanted to write a note and let you know how much I appreciate your style and persistence in forcing me to be in relationship with you and with myself. Every bit of fear and discomfort was well worth it. Because of this, I have gotten everything I wanted and needed from my time with you and from therapy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart"

"I just wanted to write you a note and thank you so much for all that you have helped me with. I can honestly say that this more work and progress than I made than in the last two years previously in therapy. I’m so thankful that you have helped me work through difficult situations with my parents and helped me discover that they aren’t all bad. Although I’ve become irritated and angry at times, I realized this is just so I could grow. Therapy has helped me discover who I am, experience my inner child and adolescence and finally begin to love myself. Thanks for the kind thoughts combating the “negative voices“ in my head. Each day it becomes easier to use my new “nice voice”. Thanks for your patience with me and pushing me along each day. It means more than I can ever say."– 15 year old female
"Thank you Dr. J for helping to save my marriage. You have taught me to honor my feelings and how to communicate them in a way that doesn’t escalate arguments. I will never forget what you have taught us and the difference it has made."– 42 year old male
