Claudia B. “Initially, I was a little apprehensive because of my fear of being vulnerable. I was extremely shy and never thought of therapy before. Talking to a stranger about my deepest fears? No way!. However, working with Noah I was able to feel comfortable and talk about my social anxiety among other things like low self-esteem and depression. He helped me find ways and methods to cope with my anxiety and catastrophic thinking.
Now I find myself doing things that were extremely difficult to do in the past. I had trouble connecting with people because I was afraid of their opinions about me so I always kept my distance but being vulnerable in therapy though at times it was hard has helped me strengthen relationships with my friends and form new friendships.
Also, I used to dread going to interviews or social events, I thought I was never gonna be able to be confident again, but with Noah's help, and practicing giving myself credit and learning to celebrate small achievements is boosting my confidence and self-esteem. Today I have my first 2 internships and I am very proud of myself.
Working with Noah and doing CBT therapy has given me lots of hope. I see massive improvements in my personal life and I see myself dealing with my anxiety better. He introduced me to the concept of mindfulness, I am learning to pause and observe my assumptions and false narratives, I see myself processing my thoughts in a more positive way and that makes me happy because I feel like I am taking my life back.
Noah is a wonderful therapist, very empathetic and caring, and he challenged me in the best way possible when I needed it. I am very thankful for all the things he helped me overcome. "
