Dr. Goldberg and the clinical staff at Life Changes Group were incredibly professional and helped me at a time when I really needed help. I cannot thank them enough for their support. I strongly recommend working with this practice; and, if you're lucky enough to get an appointment, using Dr. Goldberg for CBT. He really knows his stuff.

The restrooms at this office were spotless. It smelled clean in there and looked immaculate. They made sure all of my questions were answered, and are always there if I think of any more questions I want answered. They really go above and beyond to make me feel special. I've never been anywhere that seems to care more about their clients than here. When I arrived for my appointment the friendly staff seemed to be waiting for me. I've been to other places where I had to wait forever after I arrived for my appointment, but not here. I was very impressed. They are so kind and caring and stayed open past their closing time to help me. They wouldn't deny anyone that needed help. I know I can always count on them.
