Some of Recovery DBT's Rave Reviews:
"Iain provided the guidance our family needed to navigate through treatment and recovery. Not only did our teenage daughter learn coping skills, but we, as parents, also learned how to better support her. It was a team effort that guided us through a difficult time and benefits our family still today."
- Yvonne, mother of a 16 year old
"Working with Ann has been absolutely life changing for my family. Ann helped my 17-year old daughter navigate a number of issues by teaching her the skills she needed to stay emotionally regulated. Ann is knowledgeable, warm, empathic, and practical. Her unwavering support has been instrumental in helping my family through some incredibly difficult times.
She is a terrific therapist and an amazing parent coach, she has been instrumental in helping me improve my relationship with my daughter."
- Janine, mother of 17 year old
"I was referred to Ann Guzman, after considering various IOP programs I felt choosing Ann's program was the best for me since she offered DBT, individual, and crisis therapy. I couldn’t be happier with the services Ann provided, her devotion helped improve my accountability all while still working at my own pace. I have made strides in which I never thought possible, especially in less than a year of working with her. I came from extreme anxiety, PTSD, agoraphobia, depression, and unemployed. Learning DBT skills has allowed me to maintain a steady job and even open my own business. Even with my current success, Ann continues to devout her assistance to my specific needs as I’ve grown through this process and learning to find my true self again."
“Having Ann as a therapist saved my life. My time in DBT has taught me to find a life worth living even through my hardest struggles. I am now not only alive. I am truly living."

"Our daughter was struggling with depression, suicidal thoughts, just in a very dark place and we her parents could not help her out of this situation. We were not equipped with the knowledge, experience and tools. We heard of the DBT program and Iain through the proverbial grapevine - word of mouth - which turned out to be a life-line for us. One of the challenges in seeking help is to know who to trust, this is your child, maybe even yourself. Secondly - is there a way forward, is there a process, a program, some structure to work with that will help - you’re not looking for 'forever therapy'.
For us, Iain and the DBT Program, which we as parents got to participate in too, was an answer to our prayers and checked both my questions. I recommend Iain as a wonderful, gentle person and someone with a heart for helping + all the knowledge, experience and skills necessary for the job at hand. The DBT Program is well regarded - carefully structured, thoughtful and effective. As noted, we all - child and parents, participated in the DBT Program and this was great as we mirrored and learned as we worked our way through the program.
Our experience was that the program gave structure and a process to work through which lead us up and out. We are not “perfect” but we are so much better today. On a scale of 1 -10, where 1 is dangerous and 10 is blue skies, sunshine and rainbows, we started at a 3 and are at a 9 today."

"When our teenage daughter experienced a mental health crisis, Ann was the only therapist who was able to truly connect with her. Ann’s special gifts of wisdom, intuition, patience, and the ability to communicate sincere care and concern for her clients make her an outstanding mental health professional. As a parent, I feel extremely confident about Ann and the way she could shine a light for our child (and our family) through some dark times. She always offered effective strategies and approached every situation in a calm, compassionate, and non-judgmental manner. We are so thankful to have found Ann Guzman. My daughter is living a healthy, fulfilling life and has a much brighter outlook — her work with Ann has been a major factor in this change!"
