Patients' testimonials as verified by healthgrades.com or ratemds.com

"Forever grateful for finding Dr. Saad! Her thoughtful approach to understanding new clientele in order to match them appropriately with her staff is is truly unparalleled. The relationship that I have built with my therapist over just 6 short months has helped improve my life drastically."
"Unbelievable, life changing and I cannot stress that enough. This is a place where you are understood, where you are made to feel comfortable, and there is nothing you can't talk about because it may feel "too far out there". They listen, they genuinely listen, they genuinely care, and the place has amazing energy. Safety... I strongly implore everybody even considering it to just make the first appointment and go. Life will no longer be the same. Go on, do it."
"I am a happy patient at Dr. Saad's practice and her wonderful colleagues. I had the initial consultation with Dr. Saad which was so illuminating and helpful. She then set me up with a psychologist at her practice who is very empathic and helpful."
"My favorite thing about going to this psychological services office is the initial on boarding process for new patients. I liked that there was an initial appointment with a doctor who then matched you with a long term doctor based on each patients specific needs. Everyone was very nice and flexible with my work schedule. I am very happy with my experience here!"
"Dr. Saad nailed my mind and issues in the first session. It was pretty mind blowing. I love her holistic approach. She matched me with a therapist that would meet my needs, and gave me a referral for an Eastern medicine accupuncturist. I feel very optimistic about where this treatment will take me."
"My experience with Dr. Saad and the therapist she recommended for me exceeded my expectations in every way. With their help I was able to become more aware of my issues and as a result make great changes in my life. My therapist was caring, insightful and warm. I highly recommend Dr. Saad and her team!!"
"Dr Saad and her team of psychologists are amazing! I love the concept: meeting with a senior psychologist who will design and tailor a treatment for me and then pick the best psychologist for me! I first had an initial consult with Dr. Saad and I got so much out of it. She understood me right away and picked a psychologist in her practice who would be best for me. I then met with my therapist and she was great! She has been so helpful! It is so hard to find a good therapist and it was such a relief to find someone good for me. I was so happy that I referred friends and family members. We all got different therapists and think wonders about Dr Saad's team. I think that this is the best place to seek therapy! The therapy is very tailored and personalized to you. I also find that the practice cares more about your health and progress than about running out the clock. I recommend her to everyone I know."
"Dr. Saad and her staff are excellent! I have made great progress in a few months thanks to her team."
