What Our Clients Say
“I think you have a very special program. Our children learned so many new skills and things about themselves. Simply outstanding, and definitely a program I would recommend for children and families like ours.”
“What a fantastic job you all have done of putting our boys and the parent group together. Friendship group has been so helpful for [my son] and a very positive experience for both of us! Thank you!”
“I loved this program. I know my son took valuable lessons from his group, and I very much appreciated a safe place to vent where others were quick to empathize.”
“[My son] really enjoyed coming to group every week. I think he took a lot away with him because it was such a positive experience every week. I enjoyed exchanging ideas with [the group leader] and the other parents.”
“I think it was great that the parents also met and followed along with what the children were learning.”
“In Step has been a great experience and also a great area of support to me as a parent dealing with an anxious child. I have seen great improvements in [my daughter] and am so happy we did this! I thought [the counselors] were terrific with us and the kids.”
“[My daughter] enjoyed her outdoor friendship group very much. I liked seeing her do so well in a group setting.”
“[In Step] was very responsive. The receptionist is wonderful! My calls to the therapist are always returned promptly. I have worked with several MD’s/therapists over the last 16 years. I have never had such a good experience and most importantly, direct availability to the doctor.”
“[The therapist] was very helpful in making me comfortable with the process and made the experience enjoyable for [my daughter]. We already see improvements, some attributable to her outdoor friendship group experience. Intake was also helpful.”
“This program helped my son to gain his confidence back. And he tries to use [the lessons he learned] more in real life.”
"I was so stuck when I first started seeing my therapist. Without her help, I’m not sure I could have made it through the past year between my husband losing his job and my son’s challenges at school.”
“My wife and I consulted with Cathi Cohen for several sessions when we were at a loss as to how to manage our daughter’s behavior. We found her to be available and compassionate while also being a straight shooter. She helped us make some hard changes in our relationship that needed to happen.”
