Client Testimonial

I first came to Nassau Guidance & Counseling in September of 2009. I had been a patient of Kathleen Dwyer Blair years before and realized I needed her help once again. I had been diagnosed with clinical depression and had been in a two week sustained panic attack. I was unable to eat or sleep. My body was shaking constantly and I was finding it nearly impossible to cope with the everyday demands of a working parent. All this was precipitated by starting a new job.

Because of my prior experience with Kathleen, I knew she was the one to help me. In our first session together, she gave me two simple sayings as tools to try and help me reduce the depression and anxiety I was experiencing. Just to tell you how powerful and profound those two simple sayings were; I still use them today, even though I am a very changed and different person than the one who came to her in the beginning. I find Kathleen to be one of the most intelligent, insightful, compassionate and down to earth people I know.

She has the ability to help you get to the heart of the problem, but in a very gentle and non-threatening way. I looked forward to our sessions and when I finally "graduated" this past summer, I was amazed at how far I had come. I can truly say that I am now a happy person that looks forward to each and every day.

That would not have happened without Kathleen's help, and for that I am eternally grateful. As Clinical Director of the Nassau Guidance & Counseling, I have no doubt whatsoever, that she finds the best therapists for an individuals needs. I trust Kathleen with my mental health, and so can you.
