Initial Consultation

Initial Consultation - Yasmine Saad, Ph.D.

How to start with therapy or psychological assessment at Madison Park Psychological Services

You can begin either with a brief phone conversation or a comprehensive, in-person or virtual initial consultation. Both focus on understanding who you are and providing the foundation for your healing journey. The comprehensive, in-person or virtual initial consultation provides you with a wealth of information related to your suffering, its root causes and ramifications, and ways to cope with it and find relief. We will collaborate with you to find the best modalities and best therapist fit so you achieve quick results and deep healing that lasts.

Every person is unique. The “right therapy” for you is one that is tailored to your unique personality and needs. We will provide you with the most effective treatment approach to achieve long-lasting healing. We specialize in diverse approaches to treatment, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, as well as psychodynamic, interpersonal, and mindfulness-based methods of therapy.

We believe that the success of your therapy stems not only from tailoring the treatment approach, but also from matching you with a therapist who is the best fit for you. We have selected a team of psychologists for their expertise, their diverse approach to treatment, their personality, and their cultural background to match your individual needs, personality, cultural traditions and values. Our psychologists are insightful, warm, and flexible. They provide a comfortable, safe, and welcoming environment. They actively and empathically work with you to understand your difficulties, solve problems, and expand your personal growth. They will help you define a path that will lead you to a better life and happier you.

Our therapeutic approach considers you as a whole, from a Body-Mind-Spirit perspective. When we speak of the Body, we are referring to your physical condition; when we refer to the Mind, we generally mean your thoughts and emotions; and by Spirit, we mean the essence of who you are, what makes you, you. Your Mind and Body are intimately connected and are in constant communication with how fulfilled you are in your life. A happy person has a healthy body, a clear mind, and a spirit that is fulfilled, meaning that life is personally satisfying. Because each person is unique and has unique talents, what is fulfilling to one person may differ from what is fulfilling to anyone else. We will help you identify your own special talents and what is most fulfilling to you. Our assessment and therapy services integrate this Body-Mind-Spirit approach to reach deep healing.

For a full, rounded experience at the Body-Mind-Spirit level, we offer referrals to supplemental services that enhance your psychological treatment and deepen your healing. For patients who are interested in holistic healing, we offer referrals to acupuncture, acupressure and Qigong, specifically Dragon’s Way Qigong. For patients who want additional help but are not interested in holistic modalities, we offer referrals to high quality medication management.

Our patients have experienced powerful healing effects from our individualized holistic approach to well-being. We feel confident that you will, too.

Dr. Saad and her team are amazing. I felt comfortable right from the start, but never expected that I would be able to undergo the major transformation that I did with my therapist's help. My therapist was warm, understanding and insightful. I highly recommend Dr. Saad and her team!!

The therapists at Madison Park Psychological helped change my life. I had tried therapy and medication in the past to no avail and sought their help after being in the throes of a deep depression for years. It wasn't until I was paired with a therapist who finally understood me that the fog of depression started to lift. It's been the best investment I've made in myself, ever. They really do an amazing job at matching you with the best therapist for you and your needs. This is definitely a special practice and they deserve all the kudos they receive.

In an advance of my first appointment, Dr. Saad provided exceptional guidance and information on practical matters, including cost, and her observations throughout my first teletherapy session were both thoughtful and insightful.

I highly recommend Dr. Saad and her team at Madison Park Psychological Services! I was a bit apprehensive about starting therapy though teletherapy / video sessions but Dr. Saad made it so easy from the minute I talked to her on the phone to schedule my appointment. Her initial consultation through teletherapy (video therapy) was eye opening! I learned more about myself than in my past years of therapy. I was blown away! She then matched me with a therapist at Madison Park Psychological Services whom I love. My therapist has helped me heal myself and I can say that in just 4 sessions, I am less anxious and feel so much better! I highly recommend you reach out to this practice and try teletherapy. It has been so effective for me!

I met Dr. Saad for a consultation when I was first navigating the process of starting therapy, I met Dr. Saad for a consultation when I was first seeking therapy. I had no idea what to expect, but she was very warm and welcoming, and helped introduce me to the idea of therapy. It was a bit overwhelming emotionally for my first exposure to therapy, but a great first step. She then matched me with someone in her practice who I felt was incredibly helpful in guiding me towards my personal goals

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!

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.

Rare combination of excellent knowledge and skill with actual caring. I was in a crisis when I moved to New York and wanted to find a psychologist. I found Madison Park Psychological Services and booked an initial consultation with Dr. Khadivi. I knew within a few minutes of talking to him that I was in good hands. He understood me right away and provided practical tools that I could apply. A++ Highly recommended!

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Khadivi! His initial consultation was enlightening! I felt understood right away and knew I was in good hands.

Today was my first consultation with Dr.Saad and my first impression was very positive. She took time to review my situation and gave me referrals to her colleague and to combine it with adjunct alternative holistic therapy .

dr-yasmine-saad-madison-park-testimonials

Great First Session. Dr. Saad was great at giving lots of information in a short time period. She was very helpful in quickly coming to a consensus about what was going wrong in my life and how we would work to fix it. She has a different approach to most therapists that I believe will be beneficial to me as I continue to seek therapy. While I'm sad she can't be my permanent therapist, she is very good at setting you up with someone who will understand what you need and be able to work with you on your issues.

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.

I have seen many therapists, no one understood and helped me like Dr. Khadivi. Highly recommended.

I knew I needed help but wasn't sure how talking to someone would provide it. During my consultation I became excited as I started to share my thoughts and learn that someone could help me navigate them. It felt easy and safe to explore. I am looking forward to healing.
