Suzanne Wachtel has helped me to put my mind at ease and be less stressed about everyday life with my AD/HD teenage son. She guided my husband and I in making some very big decisions for him, and encouraged us to ‘let go’ a little bit and live outside our comfort zone. Because she has dealt with many of the same issues with her own children, she is able to give me very insightful advice and suggestions.
I have been a patient of Suzanne Wachtel for approximately for 6 months. In that time I have found her to be compassionate, understanding, with tremendous empathy for those she treats. Suzanne has made herself readily accessible in my times of need and always ready to give meaningful support.
I have found her honest and reflective feedback to always be of a constructive nature. I feel we have made tremendous progress in the past few months and consider myself lucky to be her patient.
Suzanne Wachtel is one of the most inspiring people to have ever crossed my life path. Her excellent clinical skills as a therapist combined with her warmth compassion and understanding have helped me through some of the most difficult times in my life. Her commitment to her clients reflects the fact that being a therapist is truly her calling.
I would highly recommend Suzanne Wachtel as a therapist. She has been my therapist for over 4 years. She has helped me get through some of the most difficult times in my life by helping me to see things clearly. She has provided me with continuous insight, support and guidance. With Suzanne’s help I have finally found my happy place.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Ms. Suzanne Wachtel for the past year. She has proven to be an empathetic and knowledgeable clinician. She is able to relate to her clients in a warm and compassionate modality and has often offered a variety of therapeutic techniques that she thought would be helpful. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a therapeutic setting to address their emotional state. Her keen ability to zero in on a problem and offer a multitude of different perspectives has been highly beneficial.
I have known Suzanne Wachtel for many years. She has helped many parents of special needs children cope with acceptance and adjustments in their lives. As a parent of a child with autism and muscular dystrophy, I am grateful for her support and guidance. She has helped me through so much over the years, and I am not sure what I would have done without her.
I am also the president of the Syosset Special Education PTA. Our organization supports the parents and children of special needs, in our district. We raise money for scholarships, speakers and run support groups. Suzanne has graciously run several of these support groups, and we look forward again to having her this year. Many of my members have contacted her and turned to her for help and advice as well. She has a unique understanding of how to empower the caretaker to be a happier and stronger person. I person I have become.
I am sincerely grateful.
When I began seeing Suzanne I was in the early stages of a divorce. I was completely lost and confused, I had countless mixed emotions and no way to sort out my feeling or emotions. Not being a native of Long Island I had no family in the area and only a few friends to help me through this very difficult time. I was very depressed and down on myself, without question at that time in my life I lacked any type of confidence, and to top it off I was unable to connect on any level with another person. This was my definite low point. Once I began seeing Suzanne she helped me to start sorting through my feelings and understand what I was feeling and why. She showed me how to open up and express myself on levels that quite frankly I had never done before. I choose not to date during that time, I decided I wanted to focus on me. By seeing her regularly, sometimes twice a week, I started to open my eyes and really see the world differently. She is so easy to speak with, she related to me and what I was going through both through her own personal and professional experiences. I had seen a few other therapists prior to Suzanne and had given up until a friend recommended her and from day one I felt a sense of warmth and comfort. She provides a place where you can really feel relaxed and free to speak your mind no matter what you are thinking without any judgment, just understanding. Fast forward a year and a half later, now in my late 30’s I have never felt more self-aware and confident in my life. I am just simply as happy as I have ever been. I think by understanding myself the way I do now it shows in every aspect of my life. When I speak to people both in my personal life and professional I have a positive energy that people gravitate to and a confidence that I do not think I have ever had and the reaction from other people says it all. Without question I fell like the best version of myself that I have ever been. I want to thank you Suzanne for helping me change my life in ways that I will be forever grateful.
