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

Therapy with Dr. Flaks was pivotal in the many transitions that are currently taking place in my life. His approach was filled warmth, friendliness , and a true concern for my mental health . I have seen other therapists previously and none has surpassed the help that I received from working with Dr.Flaks at this time in my life . I am a domestic violence and sexual abuse survivor. Working with Dr. Flaks has helped me in overcoming these traumatic events and moving forward in my life

Dr. Flaks is awesome. I totally trust this man, and his words of wisdom. I just strarted to see him and i feel totally peaceful in his office. Actually, this is the first time in my life I am now fully facing things that have bothered me and i look forward to his guidance and opinion. He has been gentle and kind, and i am sure his friends love him being their friend. i feel that this was the best move i personally could have made into facing things and having him be the guide along the way.

I have only been seeing Dr. Flaks for a few months but he has improved my life faster and better than any other therapist I have seen. Every time I leave his office He leaves me pearls of wisdom to get me til I see him again. I wish he wasn't my therapist because I would like him to be my friend.

Dr. David Flaks often understood what I was experiencing better than I, myself, could explain it and he, most empathetically, cut to the essence of my problems and guided me in understanding them and changing my own reactions.

I have known Dr Flak since 2011 and was blessed to have him as my psychologist. I was starting a second career in nursing and went to him for support and advise while I was in nursing school and after! I would absolutely recommend him to any of my friends or family members as it would be a blessing to have him to talk to and help you deal with life problems! We all have problems, big or small and Dr Flak will be there to help you get through it!
