'To help other people because I've been helped' is the reason I'm writing this review.
I want t give back what Howard Wax and Dr. Galina gave me. I have been married twice. This is a short story about my first marriage which ended quite a few years ago. Im happy to say that today I'm in a healthy marriage with a normal guy who loves me just like I am! Howard helped me get here. Thank YOU Howard Wax and Dr. Galina!
Here we go, long ago I was terribly depressed and so were my adult children. We lacked any zest or luster for life, clearly we had been traumatized and abused for years. Our pain was being directed in all the wrong places and we couldn't make good decisions if we wanted to. We were fighting and blaming each other and everybody else for everything, we were stuck in darkness. My friends and family watched on but I could tell they were in pain watching us in pain, so I isolated to protect them all and became more depressed than every. My adult children sought therapy closer to their homes, they left me and i was alone.
One day and thank God not to late, my prayers were answered. A friend of mine strongly suggested I go see Howard Wax and Dr. Galina for depression, my friend was a patient of his in the past. I went to his website and read his words. My first BEST decision in a very long time. I didn't know it was going to take conscious work and love to repair all the damage that had been done to me by my husband.
I called Howard for an appointment and committed to a few sessions. I found that I couldn't wait to see him, continue to work on my stuff and stayed for over a year. As he helped repair my traumatic memories of life, I found my faith and inner strength once again. Thank God my decision to find someone on my side who understood me brought me to Howard Wax and Dr. Galina. My only concern was that he wasn't Christian, because I am. We talked about that right up front, it wasn't an issue, praise God. Howard was as sensitive, intelligent and compassionate as could be. He recognized and honored my belief in Jesus, the hole in my heart was already starting to mend. I WAS in the right place.
I learned about self respect and how to trust others, how to speak more kindly and not fight. He is the kind of therapist that has special qualities as a human being. I felt like I had a friend that could see through my conniving ways with my best interests at heart. That is a unique gift and a blessing to find. I always felt safe in his care and trusted his directions. I grew up in a new sweet and gentle way, unlike what I knew.
Howard is an educated and resilient and compassionate therapist who dodged my bullets of anger with darn good questions for me to ponder and talk out, that cleared my road to happiness.
Dr. Galina gently reduced my medication over time, I haven't been on anti depressants for awhile now.
Everyone experiences life differently, Howard will help you discover your truth and reveal new beginnings one day at a time.
