"...She has an almost supernatural ability to anticipate and solve problems before they happen..."
"I wholeheartedly agree that Dr. Silverman empowers those around her every day – as an expert individual and group psychologist, a devoted clinical supervisor, and an endlessly supportive colleague. I would like to add that she also has an almost supernatural ability to anticipate and solve problems before they happen – I have stopped questioning how she does this and learned to just listen to her wisdom!"
"...She models growth and learning in herself and empowers others to do the same...."
“I have had the pleasure of working closely with Dr. Silverman for years in various capacities. It is always a pleasure collaborating with her. She adds invaluable insight. If I had one word to describe Alissa it would be "empowering". She is always supportive and encouraging, and always knows the right thing to say. She models growth and learning in herself and empowers others to do the same. Alissa is one of my most valued and trusted colleagues.”
"...not only has she allowed me a safe space to grow but she helped me set realistic goals..."
I started therapy feeling like I needed a place to vent. Courtney helped me realize there was much more that I could do about the problems I was dealing with. She taught me that, "nothing changes if nothing changes" and I have been able to use that in so many different ways in my life. She just gets it, not only has she allowed me a safe space to grow but she helped me set realistic goals for the things I wanted in my life. She never judged me and my choices. If you want to be a better version of yourself, I would absolutely recommend Courtney as the therapist to help you do that!
"...I feel very empowered after my sessions with Alex..."
Alex is very understanding, reliable and non-judgmental. She never pressures you into doing anything or talking about anything that youre not comfortable with. Rather than tell you what to do to get better, she draws the solutions out of you to help you reach your goals. I feel very empowered after my sessions with her.
"...we started to use the new ways we were learning to communicate with one another..."
Courtney made really complicated issues in our relationship not only understandable but also manageable. She took the time to understand the issues between us, and then helped us to do the same outside of the sessions. Through Courtney's feedback and “life" assignments, we started to use the new ways to communicate with one another and apply those skills to our life when disagreements surfaced. Constant arguments are not the center of our life anymore, and we are back to enjoying what brought us together in the first place.
"...Dr. Silverman is highly dedicated to helping others, especially when they present complex or puzzling issues....."
“Dr. Silverman is highly dedicated to helping others, especially when they present complex or puzzling issues. She seeks collaboration with other mental health professionals to ensure she has developed an in-depth understanding of the issues presented. Dr. Silverman is greatly adept at transforming this understanding into effective strategies that foster fundamental change for her clients.”
"...I feel like Alex truly understands me....."
Alexandra is wonderful. I feel like she truly understands me and her advice is very constructive and useful for getting through tough times. Her words of support have meant the world to me.
"... It is clear she is always thinking of ways to help her clients find solutions to whatever they are encountering in their life......"
"From my initial interaction with Dr. Silverman, I could feel her sincerity in genuinely wanting to help others think and believe in what they are passionate about. It is clear she is always thinking of ways to help her clients find solutions to whatever they are encountering in their life. She even inspired me in our short interaction. I would be extremely pleased to recommend her to anyone that is looking for help from a licensed psychologist.”
"...Courtney has taught me how to live life in a way that makes me feel better and be a better person...."
"There are so many life lessons I will keep with me forever. Courtney has taught me how to live life in a way that makes me feel better and be a better person.
She has an incredible ability to see destructive patterns and safely work to get a person out of a cycle that is not serving them. I was finally able to get out of that cycle and get my life on track."
"... Alex has really helped me view things in different perspectives..."
Alex has been extremely helpful. Great listener, responds quickly, and has really helped me view things in different perspectives. Terrific therapist!
I know it comes as no surprise that racism and discriminatory acts toward Black and other racially ethnic groups have a longstanding history in our country.
