Harriet Haberman Ph.D.

Client Testimonials

I am so glad that Dr. Haberman encouraged me to join the women's empowerment support group. Our sessions are an extremely positive experience - supportive, encouraging, enlightening and comforting. The energy surrounding the group is most positive. Even when difficult feelings are expressed the overall energy in the room is still very positive. I am very glad to be a part of it.

As I approach my one year anniversary since I began therapy with Dr. Haberman, I feel so pleased with the progress I have made under her care. Dr. Haberman's ability to intuitively zero in on certain truths and to gently guide and encourage are truly remarkable. This talent, combined with her sense of what methods to use at what time also helps to make her treatment most effective.

I have been in therapy previously at different times in my life but I have to honestly say that none has had such a deep and significant impact as my time with Dr. Haberman. I wouldn't have thought that at this stage of my life that I would have made such progress. I truly feel that my deepest feelings and issues have finally been brought to the surface, examined and untangled, and finally laid to rest. Dr. Haberman gently provided light, comfort and the encouragement to continue my journey staying by my side every step of the way. I constantly felt a strong spiritual component to her presence which always made me feel safe. Her insight, compassion and professional expertise represent the brilliance of what Dr. Haberman does.

It is difficult to really articulate the true range and depth of this experience but I feel very blessed to have found Dr. Haberman and to have embarked on this journey under her care. I am pleased to have now entered another phase of this growth period by being part of our women's group.

My heartfelt gratitude, appreciation and love go out to Dr. Haberman.

And of course this wouldn't be complete without a special mention to Tara and Fluffy for always greeting me with such unconditional love.

Dear Harriet,

As I look back at the year that has passed and forward to the year that is beginning, I can't let the year close without telling you what the past three months have meant to me. It is hard to put into words what my time working with you has enabled me to do. I feel for the first time in my entire life that the future looks bright. I wake up in the morning knowing that each and every day I am growing, and learning and changing and that my future has endless possibilities. That seems nearly impossible considering where I was in the not too distant past. Using your insight, knowledge, compassion, and understanding you have encouraged me to explore new paths. Often they appeared terrifying and treacherous yet you have led me each and every step of the way.

The times I have been stuck you gently prodded and encouraged me to keep moving. When an old familiar path looked easier but the end result was a trip "down the spiral" or "into the vortex" your humor served to break the vicious cycle as you "gave me a choice." You have always respected my boundaries and my needs, yet you constantly encouraged me to move "just a little further" or to look a "just little deeper." When unbearable feelings threatened to overwhelm me, your constant soothing presence allowed me to open wounds and begin a healing process that until recently I believed was utterly impossible. Because of the work I have been doing with you I am becoming a person, and not just a person, but a whole person. I don't know if it is possible for one person to ever thank another person for giving them life. You see you didn't give my life back to me because I was not really alive before. In the past three months you have literally given me my life. For that I can only say

Dear Dr. Haberman,

I would like to take this opportunity to write you this short note and thank for touching my life. Your name appears many times in my gratitude journal and I wanted you to know.

I came to you with a heavy heart and some very pressing issues which needed immediate attention and work. Dr. Haberman, because of your knowledge, vision and concern I can honestly say that I am alive today because of you. You touched my life and my heart in a powerful way and opened my eyes to many new ideas and ways of life. I am still learning and growing a little each day because of you.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there for me when it seemed hopeless and I was helpless. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. You helped me find the tunnel and told me the light is always there. That I just have to work, look for it, and open my eyes and see it!

Thanks again,
Leonia, N.J

Dear Harriet,

I have been in and out of therapy for the past 25 years. I have seen several different therapists, both male and female. I have been in group sessions and participated in weekend retreats as well as anger management seminars and various other work shops. I have read books, and have been treated medically with anti-depressants and at times tranquilizers.

Yet through all of this, there still remained troubling feelings, doubts, fears, anxieties and a sadness, which I could never understand. Until I met you.

I just have to tell you that the few months I have spent working with you has done more good for my peace of mind than the last 25 years combined. It's really quite remarkable.

You have a gift Harriet. An intuitiveness and empathy towards me that reaches out and says "I understand." It is both calming and reassuring. And it lets me get to a place where I feel safe. Safe to do the really painful stuff that leads to understanding and healing. You are also creative. You can sense when it's time to go deep through guided imagery, and when it's time to give practical insights, and even when it's time to just listen.

I realize that life is not perfect. That there will be good days and bad. But, since working with you, I do not lapse into the feelings of despair and sadness that I have carried with me all these years.

It is a blessing. Thank you Harriet for changing my life.

With warmest regards,
Englewood, N.J.

Dear Harriet,

I am writing to update you on my current health status. As you know, about a year and a half ago, I was diagnosed with moderate cervical dysplasia. I had undergone several biopsies and a leep procedure to treat this condition. At the same time, it occurred to me that I needed to take a look at what my body was trying to "tell" me. I began taking yoga classes, learned how to meditate and made meditation a daily ritual, and decided to expand my work by seeking your help. I had been in psychotherapy in the past, but the work we did together, you and I, was very different. Your intuition is extraordinary. You helped me reach my goal in coming to you.

A couple of weeks ago, after a year and a half of abnormal pap smears every three months, I am thrilled to say that this time my test was normal. I am a true believer in the mind, body, spiritual connection. The resources I found to help heal myself are truly a gift. Thank you for sharing your gift with me.

Paramus, N.J.

Dear Dr. Haberman,

It has been five months since I began the enlightening and inspiring journey with you to discover my authentic and true self. I certainly did not know what I was searching for at first, but I soon discovered, it was "ME"

I so clearly recall the desperation and anxiety that had been consuming me. It was those emotions and feelings that motivated me to seek assistance I am so grateful that I had heard from friends and acquaintances, high recommendations of you, Dr. Haberman. You are an experienced and encouraging teacher and guide. You have helped me to redirect my life and I am becoming the person I was meant to be.

Thank you, Dr. Haberman.

Sincerely and respectfully,
Secaucus, N.J.


Life is good. but very busy right now.. I owe lots of my happiness to you. You assisted me in reaching inner peace and happiness & IN FINDING A WONDERFULL LOVING HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP with a GREAT MAN BUT I ONLY REACHED THIS POINT WHEN I REALIZED I DID NOT NEED A MAN TO COMPLETE MY LIFE. I ONLY NEEDED ME!

It was almost miraculous that within weeks after that realization, I met Bob The key to my success in this relationship has been my own personal growth... stability... security. Taking it slow and focusing on being friends first. This enabled me to really get to know Bob as a person and not allow my emotions to alter my visions of WHAT WAS REAL and subsequently make healthy choices.

For now take care of yourself. I hope you find great joy and empowerment knowing how much your efforts and caring changed my life. You were a positive, loving, spiritual force that helped me "SOAR".

Fort Lee, N.J.
