Lack of experience and out of touch with the client and the parent of the client. There were so many times of seeking help and ideas to assist with my son with his behavior and home and all of my cries for help fell on deaf ears, ignored and the lack of guidance was a big issue. There was a disconnect and lack of common ground. She provided no direction, clinical expertise or overall knowledge of the situation. We asked for a male or a different therapist a month ago and still no follow up or update, no answers at all. My son said he just didn’t want to be with her anymore. There were so many problems with this agency and it started with an inexperience student intern with a large ego. We tried to give them a chance but they failed us horribly. I had to go and seek help from others, which the help they suggested was beneficial and produced positive outcomes for my son. Hudson River Counseling and their staff was not helpful. After many month of asking for help for psych evaluation and medication for my son, they pointed us in a direction that was counterintuitive and delayed care. Again, finally with the help of other outside assistance that we inquired about help us get our son on a medication regimen that has been effective, he still has some progress to be made but I am relieved that we got some much needed help with those who are competent, knowledgeable and down right cares. I felt so unsupported at Hudson River Counseling. Hudson River need a revision of their agency goals, mission and vision to find solutions for situations that are difficult than others.

Michael is a patient and insightful listener. One senses he has genuine interest in getting a full understanding of who you are.

Michael is an exceptional therapist. I’ve worked with quite a few therapists over the years and I would have to say that therapy with Michael has been a game changer for me. I feel truly understood, and that his perceptiveness has been demonstrated by his analysis and distillation of the core issues I’ve brought into the room. Michael is very supportive and empathic. In just 6 months I feel an easing up of my anxiety and sadness, moving towards a much healthier place. He has a thorough working command of several therapeutic modalities, both in theory and clinical application.

Very kind, compassionate and insightful. Finding a new therapist can be a adopting task, but I was very pleasantly surprised at the amount of knowledge, understanding and empathy that Ellenie displays during our sessions.

My therapist has made me into a better father and husband. Soo, was able to identify what I needed to work on and was able to spot where I progressed. My life is in such a better place and I believe I have grown as a better person.

Words do not adequately express the wonderful experience I had with Hudson River Care Counseling over the past five years. When I was trying to cope with the personal and professional challenges of life, my therapist, Adam Dubin, helped to pick me up! He did so by giving me the life skills to use to return to a healthy productive workplace and lifestyle. To remain calm and resilient enough to face the high and lows of my personal and professional challenges the right way. I would strongly recommend Adam Dubin at Hudson River Care Counseling to anyone looking to find new and creative solutions to a better life. FG
