Former Client Amy's written testimonial about Overcoming Panic Attacks:
"I was suffering from severe panic attacks when I attended classes at college. The episodes were getting worse and worse, and I had to drop out for one semester with incompletes and "F's". Nobody really understood what I was going through. My friend had some similar problems and mentioned that she had gone here for about six months. My psychologist at Holtz Psychological taught me how to cope with the anxiety, how to use positive self-statements, and how to use relaxation techniques effectively. I learned all about Panic Disorder and found out that it's actually pretty common. Now I live my life more normally. I can go to school without the fear of an anxiety attack. I can return to a normal life from a stressed out life! I can even fall asleep more easily. Everything changed for the better. Definitely come here to take care of your anxiety!"

Former Client Tony's written testimonial about Rejoining the Dating World After Divorce:
"I had been divorced for about six years and had joined a dating service. It was a tough adjustment! I was surprised to find that I lacked confidence and was unsure of myself. I didn’t handle rejection very well and got involved in some toxic relationships. Dr. Holtz helped me recognize "red flags" when meeting new people and I learned how to set some guidelines for myself when searching for a partner. I'm getting better at coping with the roller coaster ride of the dating world. Returning to dating can make you feel vulnerable and confused, but I’ve become more secure about it and feel like I can cope with all the uncertain variables much better now than when I had started therapy."

Former Client Cindy's written testimonial About Recovering From Traumatic Events:
"I had started therapy at Holtz Psychological after a few really traumatic events in my life, including a recent breakup and a car accident. I wanted to be in a better mood, express myself with less anger, and work on having more confidence in myself. Dr. Fred told me my feelings were normal considering what happened to me. We worked mostly on improving my mood and having me stop feeling sorry for myself. He insisted that I get back into my hobbies and start calling my friends again, and we came up with coping statements to help me stay motivated. Recently, my supervisor at work sent me an e-mail that described me as a “new and improved” version of myself. He had no idea I was going to therapy. My boss had mentioned changes in the way I worked with my co-workers and leaders in the organization. This month I was invited to be a member of a development committee to help make my place of business better for everyone. It's a great new position! I don’t think these events would have happened in my professional career if it weren’t for the work I have done with Dr. Fred. He gave me the confidence when I needed it the most."
Former Client L.T.'s written testimonial about their son's behavior, resulting ADD diagnosis and treatment:
"Our Pediatrician had given us the number for Holtz Psychological Services. My son's behavior was getting worse, and he was beginning to take his anger out on his siblings. His schoolwork and grades were also falling apart. The school was making suggestions that we were just not comfortable with, and we decided to try to find a private Psychologist for therapy and a second opinion. We began seeing my psychologist at HPS at this office and he seemed to instantly connect with my son. My psychologist at HPS gave my son a thorough evaluation, which was actually interesting! After the testing, all the results were explained and my psychologist at HPS even called my son's Pediatrician to go over the scores. We learned a lot about Attention Deficit Disorder and what we can do to help my son reach his potential. With therapy I have learned to be more patient and calm, especially during homework time! My son actually loved coming here and has been doing much better at home and at school. He's like a new, happier kid!" - L.T., Merrick, NY
Former Client T.R.'s written testimonial about treatment for depression, anger and anxiety:
“I was having difficulty with anger and anxiety. My family and friends were noticing that I had become more and more depressed and I did not want to go out as much. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I had been upset at some unresolved events from earlier years and I was taking out my anger on people around me. I learned better ways to view my past and resolved some issues that were haunting me for most of my life. Therapy has helped me to be to be less impulsive, much calmer and to think situations through logically before becoming upset. I am so much more productive now and I am back enjoying my usual, fun activities.” – T.R., Dix Hills
Former Client D.H.'s written testimonial about treatment for panic attacks:
“I had suffered from frequent Panic Attacks and started to avoid driving to unfamiliar places almost entirely. I thought I was going crazy and nobody seemed to understand what I was going through. Coming to Holtz Psychological helped me to develop effective coping mechanisms so I was able take steps forward and get on with the rest of my life. I learned relaxation techniques, better coping strategies, a more positive approach to my anxiety, and most importantly, I was completely understood! My Panic Attacks are under control. In just a few months I made great strides in regaining my confidence!” – D.H., Huntington Station
Former Client J.S.'s written testimonial about the HPS Staff:
“From the first time I called Holtz Psychological Services, Marissa made me feel right at home. She answered all of my insurance questions, gave me an appointment right away and really cared about accommodating my busy schedule. During my six months of therapy, staff greeted me in a friendly manner and my privacy was always respected. I would highly recommend Holtz Psychological as a place where you will feel totally comfortable and at ease.” - J.S., Huntington
Former Client H.T.'s written testimonial about their family stress and treatment:
“Therapy helped to resolve a lot of issues within our family. Everyone was under a lot of stress. My daughter was applying to colleges, one of my sons was in trouble at school and my oldest son began working at a local deli. There were a lot of changes at once and everyone was always arguing. I just needed some peace! Therapy allowed us to communicate better and begin to understand the dynamics of the family. Now we are much better at discussing options and alternate ways to achieve a more peaceful and loving environment. Therapy opened doors and solved problems, giving us new ideas and directions.” – H.T., Melville
Former Client N.S.'s written testimonial about improving communication with loved ones:
“One thing I can do better since I have completed therapy is communicate my feelings much more clearly with my friends and family. With therapy I have learned to be more patient and calm in situations that were typically frustrating for me” - N.S., Melville
Former Client M.H.'s written testimonial about learning to cope with the unexpected:
“I’m much better at handling last minute, spur of the moment changes. My spouse and I have different preferences in terms of planning events and socializing. Before coming to Dr. Fred, I had far greater difficulty in handling the last minute changes that were sometimes thrown my way. My ability to cope effectively has resolved conflict in my marriage, and we both talk much more openly and with less disagreement.” – M.H., Huntington
Former Client M.B.'s written testimonial about dealing with anger and anxiety at work and home:
“At work I was faced with an individual who treated me in a very disrespectful manner. A year ago I would have responded with anger, sarcastic comments and negative behavior. This would reflect poorly on me and, in the end, would have done nothing to help resolve the situation. I was able to discuss all of my difficulties at work and at home with my therapist at HPS. We actually practiced typical workplace scenarios and went over various ways to more effectively handle them. Now, after about a dozen individual sessions of Cognitive Therapy, I could see that I had become better able to control my emotions, assess the situation, and instead of being blinded by anxious and angry feelings, deal with matters in a reasoned and rational way.” – M.B., Baldwin
Former Client S.T.'s written testimonial about their son's behavior and resulting ADD diagnosis:
"My daughter's illness devastated our entire family. The sadness and stress was beginning to affect all of us and there was a lot of arguing and conflict (and a lot of guilt!) When I realized that the focus should be on our daughter, I began therapy. Through therapy I learned that with more patience and understanding, my partner and I can deal with each other during our daughter's time of fear and challenge and be a source of strength for her. Our therapist made it easier for us to communicate and now we feel safe in our relationship. We are now better able to face my daughter's difficult medical issues." – S.T., Coram
Former Client S.T.'s written testimonial about their daughter's behavior and resulting anxiety diagnosis:
"Nothing wrong..just an update. Jill has been doing very well. Every now and then the anxiety rears its ugly head and she seems to control it as you taught her to do. We had sent her to the Jorges School of Horsemanship camp for 4 weeks this summer and she now takes riding lessons-yes,...not cheap, but it has done wonders with her confidence as you suggested it would, and she also volunteers there. I wanted to thank you for all that you did for her and if she ever needs help, we will reach out to you. Attached are some pictures from her Horse Show last Sunday. 2 1st place ribbons, 1 2nd place ribbon and a ribbon for Grand Champion of her division!" – S.T., Coram
Client J.P.'s written testimonial:
"Hi HPS Psychologist, P. is in a school play and I was just informed by P. this morning that he will be doing many more plays as he feels his social anxiety is very well under control. P. does seem to be doing a lot better now, thanks to your sessions with him, in controlling his stress level. I would like for him to see you once or twice more before we conclude these sessions so he can say goodbye and lock in all of the work you have done with him. I will email you in a few weeks to set up another Sat. appt. Thank you for all you have done that is permitting him to take risks and do more socially. Best Regards, The J&P Family" – The J & P family
Client AT's written testimonial:
"Thank you HPS Psychologist for being there in a pinch for my son. You were very generous with your time, given that there was a crisis and we did not have an appointment, spending a few minutes with him on the phone helped him in dealing with the social anxiety that was preventing him from attending a really big social event with his friends last night. We are grateful to have found someone who truly understands the needs of a young boy with Asperger's disorder. Thank you!" – AT from Dix Hills, NY, NY
Client GR's written testimonial:
"Thank you my psychologist at HPS for always being there for my family and I. You were so helpful with my husbands personal problems over the past year and he and "we" are doing so well that we are now reaching out to you to help our son, thanks for always being there for us." – GR from Dix Hills, NY, NY
Client MR's written testimonial:
"Thank you for a very warm positive meeting. I believe the new year will bring good things for Miriam, with your help. She was proud that she "did more of the talking" this time in comparison to other psychologists she has seen. She also appreciated your sharing some things about yourself which made her feel very comformtable. Thank you again." – MR from Huntington, NY, NY
Client RM's written testimonial:
"My daughter has been seeing my psychologist at HPS for several months and her anxiety is much better, I am so grateful as she has been to many many therapists over the past 4 years and she has not stuck with any of them, thanks!" – RM from Huntington, NY, NY
Client E.T.'s written testimonial:
"I can’t thank my psychologist at HPS enough for all the great advice and continuous support getting over a miscarriage and through a divorce. He helped me find the strength to face and move past many obstacles that made my divorce so much more difficult. His compassion, great sense of humor and occasional much needed “kick in the butt” always help me stay on the right path, with a more positive attitude. I also appreciate his commitment to coach me on helping my son through the divorce and all the changes that will come with it." – E.T. from Melville, NY
Client GG's written testimonial:
"HPS psychologisst, I want to thank you for helping me. I am definitely not the person you met almost two years ago. Your patience and guidance is much appreciated. You have a way of letting me answer my own questions and resolve my own problems with helpful advice along the way.You are a great mentor and healer. This is definitely your calling. I look forward to our future sessions." – GG from Melville, NY, NY
