It took a few tries to find the right therapist for me, and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to work with Dr. Zwerdling. Dr. Zwerdling is a compassionate, insightful and empathetic practitioner. My husband and I are so so grateful for his help and we could not recommend his services more!

I went to Dr. Zwerdling for individual counseling. It did not take long to feel comfortable with him and safe to discuss anything. He is a very genuine and caring person. With his help, I had breakthroughs to long standing beliefs that no longer held true and I was able to let go of them. He has also given me the tools to be able to better deal with the stresses of life that were causing much anxiety. The time spent with Dr Zwerdling was truly an investment in myself.

Dr. Zwerdling is fantastic. My fiancé and I went in addition to pre cana because we wanted to focus on having the right tools in our toolkit first marriage. Dr. Z is patient, kind, and my husband who is not very expressive was able to feel comfortable expressing his feelings with Dr. Z’s help. We continue to see him occasionally for tune ups as well. Couldn’t recommend him more highly. Very smart and good at his work.

I saw Dr Zwerdling over a long period of time for panic , anxiety and past trauma. It was a slow process for me to learn to trust someone enough to talk openly. There were many ups and downs for me and while it wasn’t always pretty for me, I can say for certain that it was Alan’s patience, kindness, focus and ability to push gently while allowing me move at a pace that I could handle that led me to much needed healing.

Dr. Zwerdling is a wonderful, kind and understanding therapist. We were going through a very difficult time in our marriage and Dr. Zwerdling helped us open up the lines of communication, work through hurt and pain, and learn to listen to each other. He was very sympathetic and understanding, and his knowledge and manner were always reassuring. Overall he created a safe environment in which to talk and to explore difficult topics.

My husband and I sought out Dr Zwerdling to help us overcome some issues and was particularly helpful in teaching us to better communicate. I am very grateful for his assistance and appreciated his caring manner, equal respect and attention for each of us and his comfort in working with a same sex couple. I would recommend him to others.

WE went to the right person for couple counseling. His kindness and ability to zero in on our basic differences was a pleasure to listen to. We work on his suggestions still. We are not getting any younger, being 80 now, and we want to be happier with each other for the days we have left. If you want to help yourself as we did, see Dr. Alan Zwerdling. He deserves an A+
