Dr. Robert Denkin's Testimonials
"Dr. Denkin has been helpful in my most trying times. He kept me grounded and balanced whenever I felt overwhelmed with work and school. I certainly would not be where I am without his help. - Clare L., John Hopkins graduate, Resident at John Hopkins Neurosurgery
"He helped me let go of the old pain and anger that I was holding onto for awhile. I had not realized how much my past was weighing down my present until I met Dr. Denkin. He helped me detect patterns and outdate sources within my life. It was a bittersweet revelation at first. But after time, personal effort, and Dr. Denkin's guidance, I am now able to clearly discern what is helpful and how to let go of things that are not helpful. I have also learned how to feel great and become self aware!" - Jacquelyn D., a mother
"I was unemployed, lost, and down on myself before I met Dr. Denkin. Now, I have a stable job and know the techniques to get myself out of mental garbage whenever it piles up! The changes in my life have been tremendous, not just for me but for everyone close to me. After seeing Rob for two months, my older brother (whom I was drifting away from), told me 'Whatever it is that you are doing, keep doing it. It is working for you.' These words of encouragement were worth every penny I have spent on therapy. Thank you Rob for helping me believe in myself and see things more clearly." - Ian G.
