Dr Dufford is an excellent doctor and I am quite lucky to find him. He is not part of my insurance network. But I still go to him. I am seeing Dr Dufford for last 1 year for treatment on Panic Attacks, Agoraphobia &amp; OCD. Since starting therapy I made significant progress. To give an idea - a year back my state was some one suffering for few years, was out of job for multiple years, unable to go out of home beyond a mile without support person, unable to drive on own due to fear of panic attacks and some periods unable to go even outside house. Contrast this to now - Last month I joined a fast growing company as a full time employee. The location is 15 miles from my house. I don't have any of my prior fears whether it is driving/going for hair cut/meeting friends/eating outside/doing job/shoping etc. I don't know what this means for others but for me it is a 2nd chance in life. Don't you think? I am lucky to find Dr Dufford and feel grateful to him. He has vast experience with treating anxiety related problems. One aspect that I did not anticipate was that his treatment would go beyond and fundamentally change me to be a better person, develop fulfilling relations, inner perspectives etc. I cannot emphasize enough in words how much difference this makes. I believe, this latter part is more to do with Dr Dufford nature and approach. Dr Dufford approach is very gentle and he has lots and lots of patience. His mp3's are a great complement to therapy and I listen to them fairly frequently. There were multiple times in last year when I reached out to him outside session hours because I found it difficult to wait until next session. Sometimes it was late in the night. He was always available and always helpful. This also made a huge difference in my recovery as it provided tremendous confidence (i.e., I have someone I can fallback for help) in facing my fears. Most of my therapy with Dr Dufford is on phone because at first, I was not able to go to his office even with a support person. The phone sessions worked so well for me that I just continued on phone even after I recovered. To all reading this review, if you/your loved one is suffering with illness like above, having seen the difference Dr Dufford and his therapy made in my (and family) life, I cannot emphasis enough this... PLEASE seek professional medical help. There is light at the end of the tunnel!!!. It may be hard to believe if you are in the midst, but know this...you WILL come out and also as much BETTER person than when you went into the tunnel. I wish you good luck!!! -Sri

Depression meds were working but my internal life contradictory and generally unsatisfactory. 10 sessions with Dr Dufford and there is a distinct improvement. From 40% "OK" to 65% "OK" and optimistic. Changing thought patterns takes work over time. His MP3 guided meditations for home use were surprisingly effective. Practical, not touchy-feely. I even broke through the nail biting habit after 60-some years. He paid attention to what I said and seemed to have a deep bucket of approaches to suggest in dealing with specific habits, thoughts, or unwanted feelings. A good guy. Easy to talk to. I recommend him.
Dr. Park was recommended to me by a friend whose daughter was seen by her. Dr. Park is a very caring person and my son really enjoyed working with her. Unlike some of the previous therapists I had worked with in the past, she actually talks and is very engaging. My son's behavior changed for the better, and I owe it to her. I know she has worked with many different schools in the past, and has natural affinity with children.
