Client Testimonials

Client received therapy to improve relationships and communication:

“I started therapy with Dr. Heather in early 2017 in hopes to find clarity in my long-term relationship. I immediately felt very close to Dr. Heather and truly feel that she helped me make the right decision during a difficult and confusing time. Over the last year, I have seen a positive impact on all of my relationships and value the support and trust that she’s provided me with.”

Client received therapy for issues pertaining to relationships, alcohol use, and personal growth:

“I was in search of a therapist for a range of challenges I was having, from a breakup, to alcohol issues, to over traveling with my career. After interviewing several psychologists over the phone, I knew Dr. Heather was the one within seconds. Her candid ability to assess one’s current and future life scenario, and interject sound advice in a non-judgmental method has been wonderful for me personally. I can’t say enough regarding the positive impact she has had on my life.”

Client received therapy to improve relationships with family, communication, and stress management:

“I have been treating regularly with Dr. Violante over the past 3 years and the amount of personal growth, knowledge, development and feedback accomplished has been incredibly helpful in so many aspects of my life (many more areas than I could have ever anticipated). I assume like most people, at first I was a bit apprehensive about beginning therapy.  Primarily because of the sensitive and personal information to be shared, and notwithstanding a general social stigma I’ve found many people often associate with someone “in therapy.” However, any initial apprehension or concerns quickly vanished during our first session because of Dr. Violante’s tremendous professionalism and overall knowledge.  Dr. Violante helped me understand that seeking continued help towards personal growth is always beneficial and something to be proud of, rather than embarrassed about. I have always felt comfortable sharing my personal thoughts and concerns with Dr. Violante, who has and continues to exhibit nothing but the utmost professionalism and privacy. Dr. Violante has helped me understand, accept and improve professionally, socially and within family relationships so drastically that I can honestly say she has truly changed the rest of my life for the better. I can confidently recommend her services without any reservation and urge everyone to take the initial step towards improving their lives where possible.”

Client received therapy to improve relationships with family and communication:

“I cannot put into words how beneficial therapy was for me.  Dr. Heather was amazing. She is kind and approachable, and got right to the heart of the problem in no time. It taught me valuable lessons on how to cope with situations that I have been dealing with improperly for the better part of my life. Meeting her was the best thing that could have happened to me.  I feel that the tools she taught me and the peace I achieved though therapy are priceless. I would highly recommend Dr. Heather Violante to anyone seeking to make positive changes for yourself and your family.”

Client received therapy to improve communications and relationships within the family:

“Since 2013, both as individuals and as a family, we have had a therapeutic relationship with Dr. Violante (aka Dr. Heather) that has provided every member of our family with healing and healthy coping skills. Dr. Violante’s guidance has seen us through major and minor crises and made us stronger as individuals and as a family. We’ve learned to articulate our personal and interpersonal problems in ways that have led and will continue to lead us to conflict resolutions and happy, healthy relationships.”

Client received therapy for anxiety and to improve relationships:

“Over two years ago, after realizing that my anxiety was beyond my own abilities to handle, I finally reached out to Dr. Heather. It was the best decision I ever made. In less than six months, Dr. Heather helped me experience growth that earlier seemed unimaginable. Immediately I noticed a weight lifted off my shoulders and a more optimistic start to each day. Her incredible talent lies in her ability to assist her clients with identifying (and sometimes just acknowledging) the source of their pain or whatever it is that may be holding them back. More importantly, she accompanies them on the path of self-healing, and provides the tools necessary to complete the journey. That is the priceless gift she has given me: the ability to have control over my mind so that I can command my life.”
