A bridge to acceptance and self-esteem

Dr. Bennett has been an extraordinarily effective counselor. I consulted him years ago because I was suffering from a paralyzing case of depression. Within two years I was able to ease off of the medicine he initially prescribed, and with his continuing help I have developed tools that help me to fend off depressive episodes and to restore my sense of self-worth and self-confidence. His questions and comments during our meetings - serious, humorous, probing, chiding, encouraging - all seem, in retrospect, to be designed to help me come to my own understanding of what I need to do to live the best life I can. I am profoundly grateful for his help and feel fortunate to have him as my doctor.

Just what I needed!

I have always found Dr. Bennett to be a straight-shooter, while demonstrative an empathetic manner. If you want to be coddled, see someone else. If you are looking for a way to "unpack" what is occurring in your life, practical approaches to deal with what causes you to seek treatment, and you are willing to make a change in your life, I believe he is very effective. I would recommend him, without hesitation, to anyone.

As a former mental health professional, the worst response to trauma disclosure I've ever witnessed.
