Thank you for all the help that your program has provided for me. I can now say from first hand experience that it has been the most helpful and beneficial part of my life. When I first started seeing the therapist I was depressed, overwhelmed and scared about what my future looked like as a mother, wife, daughter and sister. In just under 3 months, with her help, I can now say that I’m back to my happy, positive, loud, lively self again! It’s scary being diagnosed with OCD, but I’m so glad that I have been taught and given the tools to help me be able to overcome the troubling thoughts and worries that are associated with my anxiety. I can say with certainty that exposure therapy DOES work! I’m living breathing proof of it! I really am back to myself – however a self that’s less anxious and MORE carefree and happy than before.

Our son has gone from an anxious child who refused to go to school to a confident college sophomore who has the tools to manage his own anxiety. The psychologists at ATC led us down this path with humor, sensitivity, and positive techniques, teaching us how to support our child and enabling our son to feel like he can confidently control his own symptoms.

In less than a year, Dr. Pojas has been able to accomplish what I have been trying to for the past 20 years or more. Having just “graduated” from my treatment with Dr. Pojas, I feel like an entirely new person. Whereas I was once living my life entrapped by an anxiety disorder and a medical phobia which evolved over the course of my 29 years to interfere with my daily life, I am now equipped with all of the tools necessary to manage my anxieties and live “normally” for what seems like the first time in my life. It was a life changing experience, and I owe it all to Dr. Pojas’ incredible bedside manner, kindness, determination, patience, experience, generosity, thoughtfulness, passion and her faith in me as I struggled to get past the issues which had so powerfully and negatively commandeered my life until now. My husband and I couldn’t be more grateful for her.

Dr. Alden helped me to understand and overcome my panic attacks. She was always kind, supportive, and hopeful. All of our sessions were purposeful, and her treatment strategies worked. I am grateful for her expertise, her time, and her positive support.

My children have been able to gain the necessary skills to manage their OCD at times of crisis because of the knowledge, caring, and expertise of Dr. Cassiday. She was able to guide us through some very difficult times and help give our family the skills (using cognitive behavioral therapy and exposure and response prevention) so that our family could get back to normal. She was always there with us, and she still is. She is so kind and so gifted in her field!

I was emetophobic, which means I had a fear of seeing, hearing, or being around vomit. I saw Dr. Alden for a few months and she was exactly what I needed. She was so calming and supportive. I can now feel comfortable going out to places where it may happen without it being on my mind and even see it without freaking out. I never in a million years thought I would get past this, and thanks to Dr. Alden I have!
