Dr. Nakisher is really great at what he does. I always feel like I've made progress during our sessions, or have found a different perspective to a problem. It feels easy to talk to him. I'm so glad I found him for therapy when I did.

This place has genuinely changed my life. CPD came recommended to me by my psychiatrist. She said that CPD was able to provide her with one of the most thorough evaluations of a patient she has ever seen. In an effort to prevent over prescribing, she suggested I get an eval so that I may achieve a diagnosis, allowing her to prescribe more accurately. I'm the kind of person who wants to be proactive. I've had my DNA analyzed. I was thrilled to find a deep dive was on the table. Since then, every interaction with CPD has been professional and warm. They have grown into the mental health mothership in my life. My therapist is positively incredible. She seems to be emerging in her career, and has provided me the support I've needed to make it this far in the most trying time of my life. (when else do you see your therapist?) She is wise beyond her years, and her intuition is unparalleled. At first, you may be startled by how she is able to pull thoughts from you you didn't realize you were having while you're having them; it really is uncanny. She is willing to earn your trust, and if you're willing to give it, you'll find the protector you might need to take the next step in relieving the protector in your mind of duty for long enough to heal. If this sounds like a good fit for you, feel free to give my name when you set up a consultation and see if she has any availability. You'd be lucky to have her. As for CPD, I struggle to imagine there is a better, more (com)passionate place to find assistance in your recovery.
