The following client reviews are from clients and/or family member’s who have received Creative Arts Therapy with Maureen Del Giacco, Ph.D., LCAT.
Creative Art Therapy (Art Therapy) is psychotherapy while using art materials and talk therapy. In some cases and when required, cognitive rehabilitation was added as part of their therapeutic process.
“I had great success with Maureen with my younger son's anxiety. When my older son had trouble with driving (not seeing stop signs and red lights), I didn't know what to do. Dr Maureen said she could help him and uncovered a processing issue, most likely from a collision with a toy chest as a toddler. In addition to correcting the processing problem, an unexpected side effect of his therapy was better ability to recall words. His speech went from slow and disjointed, to smooth and effortless. My son had been struggling through life, we had tried several other more traditional therapists, none were able to make any progress. Life was a dark place for him and for years, I didn't know how to help him. Thanks to Maureen, he is now thriving in college and enjoying life. I highly recommend Dr Maureen's creative art therapy.”
“I brought my 12 year old son to Dr Maureen for crippling anxiety. He was barely able to function at school and his quality of life was suffering. Dr Maureen helped him regain his teenage independence and he's now doing well in school. He recently went on a long distance school field trip without me or his anxiety! We are so thankful for Dr Maureen.”
“I experienced incredible results in just a few sessions. Dr. Del Giacco's unique approach targets where the work needs to be done almost immediately. I was able to manage an issue that I have been struggling with for years successfully with her help. Dr. Del Giacco is not only an expert in her field, she is also forthright, honest and openhearted. If you truly seek freedom and healing from your suffering I highly recommend Dr. Del Giacco!”
“2.5 years ago I was, so far in the closet I was in Narnia, and my friend dragged me to see Maureen and it's not an exaggeration to say my life did a complete 180. I was helped to deal with the feelings and emotions I'd been repressing for decades and now I live a proper life at last!”
“I contracted Maureen to help my son in November 2009. I consider her a lifesaver. She was able to reach out to him and help him get control over his anxiety toward work and help him to gather his thoughts to communicate better. Maureen treated my son weekly for 6 months and it has made a world of difference. She is a very friendly and caring person.”
“Maureen has helped me with my recovery from a TBI ( traumatic brain injury), using cognitive rehabilitation, art therapy and counseling. Her deep insight has helped to develop new life skills and gain a better balance in my life.I could speak volumes about her dedication and high skill levels and expertise. I have used other therapist before, however: none with such high degree of results.”
“I came to Dr. Del Giacco when I was at the lowest point of my life. In just a few months, Dr. Del Giacco guided me to what I would consider my best self. She has taught me how to have the self-confidence to take on life’s challenges and persevere. I have never experienced these life changing results from previous therapies or doctors. I would recommend Dr. Del Giacco to anyone in need.”
