A New Life

“Let’s start with the fact I’ve seen a handful of “therapists” since my early twenties- to no avail. My husband and I tried marriage counseling and everything under the moon to “fix” what was unfixable. I called MindLAB Neuroscience as a depressed 30-year-old with a suppressed self-esteem because of my overly religious husband. I was desperate and lost and needed guidance. Dr. Ceruto worked with me although I had already decided to divorce. She gave me the permission I so desperately needed to find myself and go out and focus on myself, it was liberating! I regained my confidence and found the woman I used to be.”
