Dr. Sullivan is more than your typical therapist, he's genuine, caring, he became our rock, he became the safe zone, and the calm in life's storm. I'd feel I could breathe again as I drove to my appointments and felt free of baggage as I'd see his big smile greeting me. He was readily available when needed, very knowledgable in his field, encouraging, positive and his feedback was immeasurable.

Dr. Jim Sullivan was highly recommended to me by a psychologist that practices in NY. He was also highly recommended by several people I knew personally. He is highly respected and very well educated in his field. He is compassionate, fair, looks at everyone's perspectives and has helped many families including mine get through many difficult situations. Cannot say one negative thing about him!

Dr. Sullivan changed my life. I saw him as a troubled teen and because of him, I was able to manage my problems. I am now very successful, both personally and professionally, and I owe some of this to Dr. Jim. I would recommend him over any other therapists especially for teens and young adults.

Doctor Sullivan is absolutely the best therapist I've ever met, I couldn't I've asked for more, I still feel so lucky to be a patient. I called on a Friday & had my 1st appointment 3 days later! That's so rare.. He set me up with a secondary PhD for my medication immediately.. Honestly I've looked years for a Doctor that I feel this happy & comfortable with but more importantly that I can trust! He is truly a caring human being & is always there if I need him THANK YOU DR.SULLIVAN
