Great therapist! A lot of empathy!
I have suffered from neck and back pain all of my adult life. The pain was not caused by an accident or disease, but from what I thought and accepted as just "getting older". I would dread those initial 10 minutes of trying to get out of bed in the morning because it was so painful just to try and move my body. My neck was painful and only had slight side-to-side movement. I couldn't straighten my aching back and it was agonizing to raise my arms over my head. My knees and elbows didn't want to move, and when they did, the cracking noise they made would wake up everyone in the house. Then it happened. One morning I got up and could not move my neck in any direction without excruciating pain. I made an appointment with my doctor and she examined me (but not once touched my neck), and told me that she could find nothing wrong, but if the pain persisted, to get a C.A.T. scan. Then...she said something that changed my life. She said, "Go get a massage". My wife did some research and found Gary. We looked at his website: thealdrichtouch.com, and found that he had over 25 years of experience as a Therapist. Even though the "types" of bodywork he offered meant little to us, as we had never heard of them before, we were, nonetheless, impressed with the fact that he seemed to be a serious professional who truly believed his treatments could help his clients. My wife made the appointment and I am eternally grateful to her for choosing Gary as my Licensed Massage Therapist. When I arrived for my first appointment, I was immediately impressed by his beautiful and professional office. We sat and talked for a long time about what physical problems I had, what results I wanted from the treatment, what sports I participated in and other interests I had. Gary then explained what he was going to do and the results which I could expect. The professional layout, cleanliness and brightness of the treatment room immediately made me feel at ease. Throughout the session, before he did anything, Gary would explain what he was about to do and why. As the massage progressed, he would explain the functions of the muscle groups to me, and how their functions affected movement and, more specifically, the problems I was having. It was obvious from the first touch that he was truly a professional who knew exactly what he was doing, and his knowledge of the body made me think that he had gone to medical school at some point in his life When my first treatment was over, I noticed that my neck didn't hurt anymore and I could move it in any direction without pain.. A few days later, I made another appointment and I have been a client of his now for the last two years. Before I tell you the results of my treatments, let me say here and now.... Gary's treatments are not limited to simply massage. He has taught me about good nutritional health and what vitamins I should be taking to improve my overall health. He has shown me simple yet effective exercises to do at home to keep my body flexible between visits. His calm and positive attitude in conjuction with his therapeutic treatments have a calming effect on my body and mind, and the peaceful sensation I experienced after each treatment would last for a couple of days...but now, that feeling remains all of the time. Now...for the result of Gary's treatments. After my first treatment, I had no pain in my neck and have been pain-free since then. My knees and elbows no longer make noise when I move them and there is no pain in any of my joints. I am also much more limber, and this has greatly improved my golf swing; bringing my handicap down from 21 to 16. I also have not been sick since I began treatments with Gary. I haven't even had a cold. I truly believe that Gary's massage therapy has improved my life beyond anything I could have imagined. Believe it or not, I literally feel younger since I started receiving therapy. He has explained why that is, but I can't put it into words what he said...and anyway...it doesn't matter, because it is true. I feel better than I have in my entire life, and that is all that I care about. Make an appointment with Gary for the very best therapeutic massage you will ever receive. Then, set up a schedule of continuing treatments. You will be eternally grateful that you did.
I have used hypnotherapy in the past for a variey of reasons. One is to reach a deeper sense of my inner spiritual path, another is for well-being and wellness. Davita is one of the best hypnotherapists I have had the pleasure of working with. I am able easily and effortlessly to traversve deep areas of my subconcious in an effort to find an end to personal and physical suffering and a deep sense of well-being. She is truly an extraordinary practicionist. S MC 12/2014
Victor Ford is a brilliant psychotherapist. I can say this with “authority,” as it took me a long time, and many therapists, to find one who could help me with my depression, alcoholism and abusive childhood baggage. Vic is so easy to talk to/with. He has a gentle, yet focused and erudite way of helping me look at the man (me) behind the curtain. He has stuck with me patiently and compassionately through some very difficult situations. He’s helped me learn and grow from these challenges, instead of getting buried beneath them. Dr. Ford’s knowledge and experience is amazing. He draws from a deep pool which includes psychotherapy, theology, spirituality and physiology. In short: mind, body, spirit and soul. That was critical for MY healing and recovery. A psychotherapist with a brilliant mind and a loving heart: that is how I would describe Vic Ford. And I know, as I journey forward, he will ALWAYS be my trusted friend, philosophical mentor and learned doctor.
Jancie is one of the best counselors me and my family has had in a long while. She give time and its not all about the job. She really care for her patients. I would recommend her to any one. Jancie has also did marriage counseling with me and my husband and has bought us a long way. She talks to the both of us and really keep it truthful. I love having her as a counselor.
Dawn is amazing, one of the most gifted therapists I've ever worked with. She is intelligent, well-read and compassionate. My home, work and personal life is significantly better due to her.
Kathy is a very supportive person and I'm so happy to have her as my therapist. She works with a lot of younger people, including myself, so she understands a lot of what I'm talking about/going through. She was the first person I went to to begin therapy and I have been working with her since. I don't see myself going to anyone else but her. I can go to her with any problem I may have no matter if it's big or small. 5 out of 5...would recommend.
So, I have been working with Suresh for about a year and a half now. He is amazing. Suresh is extremely professional, open minded, and SOOOOO kind hearted. I have never experienced such an understanding therapist. I use to see therapist on and off ALL the time. None of the therapist were working and they all just wanted me to change in ways that I was not comfortable with. They would take notes and complain. It was horrific. With Suresh, he is 100% focused. No notes. No keeping documents of me (I lovveee it!!) and he truly cares. I am not just a process to him. This man has done wonders for me. I went from having panic attacks multiple times in a day to not having any in months. He is intelligent and knows how to help! Great man! Keep up the hard work
I’ve been going to Level Wellness for about 3 months and Brian, my therapist, is one of the best! He is knowledgeable and very laid back!
When I made the decision to seek help again. I honestly didn't believe there was any for me. In that moment of desperation, all I knew was I needed to get somewhere safe. My addiction had me believing I wanted to die. Any addict reading this will understand that feeling. I had pretty much given up trying to find an open bed in a detox center. That's when Steven from Sunspire called and within a couple days I was admitted into Sunspire's 3rd party detox facility in Tampa. When I entered treatment at Sunspire Health Hyde Park on October , 2017 it was to save my life. However, being my third treatment center. I just expected more of the same. Do this, don't do that, chant the serenity prayer, do a 12 step program, and be on your way. What I got was more than this addict could have ever dreamt for; a new perspective on life. After a brief adjustment period of me wanting to control and run every aspect of Sunspire and my treatment program. Yes, me the addict who weeks before was on the edge of death knew what was best for me. Thank God for the amazing operational and clinical staff who maneuvered me through and convinced me to stay on the numerous occasions I wanted to leave because it was too much. I opened up and allowed myself to receive the treatment/services Sunspire offered. The individualized one on one therapy was eye opening and has honestly changed my life. After thirty years of using drugs to cope. I've finally come to realize that my issue isn't with drugs and alcohol; the issue is ME. My therapist individualized a treatment plan to my specific needs and with my input. This allowed me to dig deep into those things that plagued me from childhood into adulthood. The cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, psychodrama, relapse prevention, codependence, spirituality, relationships and family dynamics groups provided the knowledge, skills and tools I need to piece my life back together. Along with that they put great emphasis on NA/AA sponsorship and building a network of people outside of treatment. The outside meetings were a reintroduction to life and people clean. Reaching out and asking for help was something I just didn't do before Sunspire. I have a lot of work still to do. I am open and accepting to do that work. I have never felt so confident and as prepared to "live life on life's terms" as I do today after spending 90 days at Sunspire Health Hyde Park. For the first time in my life, I am looking forward to the future and a life in long term recovery. I finally got it and it's so simple, I never have to use again!
Great therapist. Very caring and thoughtful. Highly recommend!

Elizabeth is an incredibly skilled and knowledgeable therapist and supervisor for therapists working on licensure. I would highly recommend her services to individuals and couples looking for counseling as well as students & interns looking for a qualified supervisor.
Maya is, by far, the best massage therapists I've had the pleasure of hiring. She's efficient with her time, pays attention to detail & is very knowledgeable in her craft. I would recommend her to anybody and will continue to use her services on a regular basis.
I saw Dr. Benedict after being ordered by another doctors office to have an "evaluation" for drug use/abuse, & he was to determine if I was indeed in need of "counseling". I explained what occurred that brought me to him. He was understanding, compassionate, kind & most of all- caring. He went beyond the call of duty to back me up AND made arrangements so that life will be a whole lot easier in the future for me when dealing with other doctor & the like. Being a patient with chronic & permanent disability is very hard to live with in Florida, especially when prejudice is rampant. Dr. Benedict has really made a huge difference in the way I am treated & I couldn't be more grateful for what he did. So many in medicine have lost the understanding & common sense, let alone compassion, that Dr. Benedict still has even after 35 years in practice. Patients suffer needlessly because their doctors don't step up to help them like they should-when profits over people run how they practice, & more doctors than not, in my experience, have lost the most important part of being a doctor-to help HEAL. I recommend Dr. Benedict to anyone needing an excellent therapist.
I am a mobile massage therapist. I specialize in relaxation, therapeutic, and deep tissue massages. My massages are 30, 60, or 90 minutes long and cost $20, $40, or $60. I also provide chair massages for businesses or for events.
We may have feelings or thoughts that there is something "profoundly wrong with me." Low self-esteem is related with the feelings of not being good enough. It's as if we keep trying over and over to feel good about ourselves, instead we feel bad. That is why therapy is essential for your mental health and I'm glad that you are here. You're just one phone call away from getting help.
My opening line in my online profiles, reads, "I am driven by the opportunity to help you have the best life, relationships, marriage, self image, family etc. that you can possible have, right now ASAP"! My practice has been successful because of this drive or passion! There's nothing that excites me more than to share the knowledge and experience that I have gained with my clients! Helping you go from feeling like you can't do anything right in your marriage or relationships, career, family or as a parent, to feeling like you now are on track and know exactly how to be successful in these areas of life, makes me smile, and will make you smile a lot more too!!!!
