“I initially came to Dr. Bresnick for help with obsessive-compulsive disorder, but he was very flexible about changing the course of therapy when it became clear that an abusive relationship was the more pressing issue at that time. He was wonderful about helping me to clarify what is and is not acceptable in a romantic relationship, encouraging my self-esteem, and working with me to understand the ways in which my OCD can occasionally distort the way I perceive reality. His sessions are collaborative, and because of that I felt empowered in my own recovery and more able to digest alternate ways of looking at problems. He has a warm demeanor and by our second session I was already comfortable with letting him into my personal world. He is clearly very bright, which might seem like a given for anybody with an advanced degree, but is not actually the case much of the time (I have seen a number of psychologists for extremely brief periods of time who seemed sort of out to lunch). His intelligence was comforting as I felt like he was fully engaged in the world and able to accurately imagine it from my perspective. He is non-judgemental. Most importantly, he is an extremely caring person, and is whole-heartedly invested in the way that his patients are faring. He possesses a genuine love for people and their happiness that was evident at every session. I would recommend him to my closest friends and family.”
“It was very important to me to find a Psychologist who would give specific and applicable advice in our sessions. From the very first visit I found myself thinking of and analyzing my issues from a more productive standpoint. I find Dr Bresnick to be poignant, and efficient in his assessments without being clinical or cold. In the same breath I also find our sessions to be calming and enlightening both for myself and my partner. With our busy schedules, he is quick to accommodate changes, and always on time for his sessions. What I appreciate most is how he makes you feel he is truly invested in finding solutions to the issues you present versus just talking about them. More importantly, the solutions work!“
“Dr. Bresnick is a wonderful therapist. I have consistently felt that he is fully present and genuinely invested in collaborating with me to find real solutions to problems in my life that have been a source of anxiety, stagnation, and general unhappiness. Through our conversations I have felt safe to question some taken-for-granted assumptions about how my life and relationships should be, and have built confidence to make changes – both big and small – that have been a catalyst for personal growth. Dr. Bresnick conveys genuine respect for my experiences and insights, and I would describe our sessions as truly collaborative – whether it is in navigating through a time of crisis, or in learning new, concrete ways to achieve greater balance and fulfillment in my life. His knowledge of the research in his field is clearly extensive and up to date, and he applies it to offer alternative perspectives and practical solutions while maintaining a collaborative atmosphere. He is warm, empathic, and has a good sense of humor. I would (and have) recommended him to my friends.“
“Dr. Bresnick is a remarkable therapist who uses creative contemporary methods in his counseling. He is attentive and astute in all his sessions. His office space feels cozy and warm, and is an ideal space for therapy. He is also pioneering the use of light and sound’s effect of brain waves in therapy. The lucidity of my thoughts, my ability to feel optimistic, and my ability to think creatively have all improved with his help. The light and sound therapy has also eliminated my ADHD.“
“This was my first time seeing a therapist, and I had reservations about my ability to talk about my issues with a stranger. No problem though. Dr. Bresnick was easy to open up to and extremely competent as well as personable. If he wasn’t your doctor, you’d want to be his friend.”
“I am a therapist myself and spent valuable time with Todd Bresnick as he helped me to help myself. Yes, therapist need therapy, and Todd is empathic, curious and effective as a therapist.“
“Todd has helped me through a lot of personal issues. I have been to quite a few therapists before I decided on Todd. Besides having a way of putting things into perspective and events in their contexts, he also offers concrete suggestions and achievable plans to follow so that how I act mirrors the progress I have accomplished mentally and cognitively in our sessions. I am very happy to have found Todd, and I feel that I really can talk to him about anything that I want to share and that he really has created a safe and nurturing setting for me to have done so.”
