"I only saw Adrian for a short time, but her impact on me was immense. She is a direct and honest communicator. In our first session, I was a little surprised by her frankness because I am very emotional and sensitive. By the end of our session, I realized she does this because she cares deeply about people, doesn't want to waste your time, and wants what is best for you.
After a handful of sessions, Adrian realized I needed a different style of therapy that she was not an expert in called dialectical behavioral therapy. It was something I had never tried or been recommended in my 10+ years of seeing therapists. She suggested it could be very helpful, and as much as I liked working with her, she was right. She didn't just push me out into the world either. She helped me find a DBT therapist and gave me suggestions for how to move forward.
This incredible woman was able to do for me in only a handful of sessions what others had failed to do in years and years of sessions. I am by no means "cured," but she set me on a better path to get the help that I have been so desperately looking for all these years. I will be forever grateful to her for that."
I have been seeing Adrian at Helping Others Heal for years and she has helped me immensely in times of despair and in times of joy. She has seen me bend to the point of where I was sure I would break but she kept me together and encouraged me to keep pushing forward. I credit Adrian with helping me to find happiness in my life; I would have never looked for it if she didn't make me realize that it was a possibility. I have referred friends and co-workers to Adrian and will continue to do so, I highly recommend her.
I leave therapy feeling as though the hour spent was well managed, therefore I am willing to work on challenges given in order to continue to grow by learning more about myself.
My time spent with Adrian has changed my life. She has helped me to realize that life is going to be ok, even when times were toughest. Talking to Adrian and being able to share my thoughts, feelings and concerns calms me down in ways that talking to others does not do. She provides such a comfortable and warm environment and when I talk to her, she makes me feel as if I am her only client. I leave Adrian’s office in a much better place than when I arrived.
Exactly what you need in a therapist: gentle and encouraging but tough when need be. She was easy to engage with from day one. She is also reliable, punctual, and never cuts a session short.
Adrian has been a consistent source of thought-provoking questions, comments and assignments. Her sense of humor, kindness, ability to listen and know her clients is invaluable.
I've been seeing Adrian for quite a few months now to alleviate stressors from past trauma, familial struggles, relationship issues, work conflict, an unsatisfying career, etc... She's been GREAT at building trust, staying connected, & "helping me to heal" at a pace that is comfortable yet productive. She's super insightful, relatable, passionate about her work, seasoned & hilarious. I Highly recommend!
Adrian is by far the best therapist I have ever had. I started seeing her for feelings of depression and anxiety in November 2015- problems that I have dealt with through most of my teenage and young adult years. Throughout our fifteen months together, she has shown her innate talent of expertly navigating through emotional landscapes and giving advice in way that is both digestible and energizing. She is able to foster a trusting, yet firm environment in which I have been able to challenge my negative automated thoughts and start building a foundation of self-trust and self-love. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking professional help for their problems.
