Dr. Flaks is the best therapist I have ever encountered and would highly recommend him for anyone that wants practical, compassionate, thoughtful therapy. It is hard to put into words why he is so good. He meets you were you are and is able to bring you, softly and gently, to where you need/want to be. Don't hesitate--book an appointment with Dr. Flaks--you will be so glad you trusted him.

Dr. Flaks was a tremendously supportive and helpful provider at a time when I was struggling with anxiety, depression, and a difficult job search. Months later, I feel I'm in a much better place thanks to his services as a therapist.

I found Dr. Flaks through the excellent reviews he received from others and he lived up to them all. Dr. Flaks helped me through a difficult time in my life, when things went from good to bad in an instant. He is always 100% focused on listening, administering advice and different therapies. I am a stronger person now than when I started. It's good to know his door will always be open. Thank you Dr. Flaks!

Dr Flaks is a highly skilled and compassionate therapist .But more importantly he is empathetic and empowers the patient to deal with their issues. Using different therapies, he helps the patient find the solution and power to restore them back to mental health. He doesn't give up! I can truly state that it was only due to Dr Flaks guidance and support , that I was able to free myself from the depressions and trauma that limited me my whole life. I will forever be grateful to Dr Flaks for help.

Dr. Flaks has changed my life for the better! He is kind, caring and listens to your every word. He really knows me better than I know myself. I consider him more of a friend than a therapist. There are not enough words to describe how grateful I am that he is my therapist.

Dr. Flaks provided phenomenal support to me over the course of about a year. When I first visited his office I was experiencing symptoms from compounded trauma that were severely controlling my day-to-day living. Thanks in large part to his support, I have experienced a complete re-centering, and tremendous growth. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Flaks.

Dr. Flaks is a wonderful therapist. I can honestly say I was very particular about who I chose to receive therapy from, so before finding Dr. Flaks, I met two other therapists, but I found that Dr. Flaks had a very warm, welcoming, and professional approach that I didn’t find with the others. It was easy to feel comfortable with Dr. Flaks and it’s very evident that he truly cares about his clients as he is always doing research on his own time to provide you with helpful materials and techniques

I have been a patient of Dr Flaks for well over a year. From my first appointment to my last, Dr Flaks has helped me identify negative behaviors in myself which was ultimately ruining my happiness as well as the happiness of those i love most, my family. Dr Flaks was able to diagnose my depression and recommend medical treatment i was able to take hack to my primary physician. Dr Flaks not only saved my life, but his help and guidance helped save my marriage and my family. I highly recommend him
