Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

The best agency I have found so far in Bergen county that still accepts major insurances and the out of pocket expenses are very nominal when compared to other agencies. Thank you much Judy!

I have a seven year old son who sees Nirala and he presented her to his class as someone who changed his thinking and behaviors. He calls her, his "GPS", she guides him when lost, navigates him carefully and when necessary will ask him to make "a U turn". She is truly amazing.

We found it so difficult to find a culturally sensitive therapist. But when we found Nirala and after attending sessions with her, she was not only able to understand our needs but even spoke to us in Hindi!! My husband and I highly recommend her as a therapist for couples.

Nirala is a wonderful therapist! She has been instrumental in my personal growth. She is easy to talk to & has sound advice. Lots of laughs through the hard times, which is always refreshing. I've been used to a lot of talk therapy in the past & she is definitely not that. She is about getting things done. Homework is sometimes provided; it's about guiding you through these lessons. She was able to refer me to a great psychiatrist, which has ultimately led me to a much greater quality of life.

I started going to Miss Bard almost a year ago and found a very helpful therapist she listen and interacts with me. She understand and give me examples to understand the situation and the solution. Also she left me things to think in between sessions that help me understand my problems. She is really good and amazing therapist

I have been going to therapy since I was 15 yo. Now I’m 33 and for the first time and after seeing so many therapist I was able to find a person who helped me to come out from all my fears, and problems. I was able to get stability back in my life as a person a wife and a mother. Ms Bard helps you with your problems, she is personal and it’s always there for you. She is great, and her team is amazing.

Nirala Bard has been very helpful for me. My life has given me quite a few ups and downs, and I take comfort in the fact that Nirala can listen to me objectively and with care. I've seen other therapists in the past, but Nirala is a much better fit. Glad I found her.

Nirala Bard was extremely helpful to me. Nirala gave me the strength and confidence to stand in my own shoes. Nirala gave me the courage to speak and be proud of my voice. Since my first encounter with Nirala I saw positive changes in my relationships with my children, my family, my peers and most importantly at my job. I will always keep her advise to me close to my heart and in the front of my mind. I'm grateful I had the opportunity to work with Nirala. JW
