Dr. Quintal is excellent in his field of counseling and therapy. He was exceptional in dealing with suppressed, painful traumas as was witnessed during his attendance at our 2nd Annual Female Veteran Retreat held at Day Springs in September 2015. He totally engaged our entire group, utilizing his technique. Dr. Quintal was able to work with over 15 women warriors, in both a group environment and then on a one to one basis and was very SUCCESSFUL in coaxing the women into a relaxed state of mind allowing them to move forward through the timelines of their traumas.
Being a disabled veteran myself and having had to deal with the VA over many years for various treatments of my TBI; I was amazed by the results that Dr. Quintal obtained in such a short period of time without needing to prescribe medications. The women were able to trust the Doctor and the end results were astounding to all of us.
After we collected and reviewed the retreat surveys, each of the women noted that they would like to continue working with Dr. Quintal and valued his methods of treatments. In fact; several veterans expressed an interest in driving from the Tampa area for future appointments just because they felt that he really made a big difference in such a short period of time.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Quintal and his staff to assist anyone who would like to move from their present state of inner turmoil and dealing with their past traumas, to that of a relaxed and accepting state of mind. It was very rewarding to see our Women Warriors progress from dealing with the pain of feeling distressed to that of all overall total well being.
Thank you Dr. Quintal and we all wish you well in your practice.
Hi Dr. Quintal,
Just wanted to touch base about how I was doing. Well it has taken time to get use to NOT having anxiety. I figured I have probably had that horrible anxiety like that for about 39 yrs and it just got worse as time went on. After my treatment it felt weird because I had to get use to the voice in my head not being there felt like something was missing. Now I feel better not missing it so much anymore don’t really think about it that much or not at all. So it has been 5 weeks since I started my new job it was an adjustment a bit scary and overwhelming a new place and new people.
What is nice at my new job for me is I am not focusing on my new co-workers and scrutinizing them thinking they are up to something. I do like my new job and it is a very professional and respectful work atmosphere no ridiculous nonsense goes on there. When my co-workers act different sometimes I say thats about them not me and walk away and not think about it again and that works. So without all that anxiety I am able to focus on my job and start to enjoy my life a lot more without all that worry.So that’s about it and thanks it sure has changed my life for the better!
Dear Dr. Quintal,
I would like to say “THANK YOU” from the bottom of my heart for improving my life. I must admit that I was apprehensive about you being able to help me with my situation but miraculously you did. After spending just 3 short hours with you, my life is so much better.
Upon leaving your office that day, I immediately noticed a change. I even sang out loud with my stereo on the way home (something I rarely do). I could feel all of my fears and anger just disappear. It’s a Godsend that there is someone like you to help people. Unfortunately, you “fixed me” so well that I probably won’t see you again but I will forever recommend you. You are a wonderful Doctor and a wonderful person!
Your BIGGEST fan,
I visited your site tonight, CONGRATS on getting the video testimonials up! It’s really amazing how many of them are so similar to me in that they have gone so many YEARS suffering when just 1 visit with you was life changing!
I want to send this written testimonial to you, pick out what you would like to have read on your site if it gets lengthy…
I never thought that I had a “problem” because I was always able to find someone else that seemed to have a bigger problem. I felt like my issues were small in comparison but can now see they were large enough to drastically effect not only my life but that of my family. I would sleep to cope with my feelings of guilt and unworthiness, so much to the point my family would joke that if napping were an Olympic event, I would win the gold medal.
After about 16 years of denial, just 2 visits with Dr Quintal gave me a new lease on life, one without the internal weight I had been lugging around with me for so long. After my second session, I remember leaving his office and calling my husband to say, if I would have known all those years ago, that me being able to feel this good would have been that easy, I never would have waited.
Dr Quintal is truely a gifted individual and I could never thank him enough.
I was pretty skeptical when I first heard about you and this therapy. After going through several years of therapy, I was pretty resigned to coping with my PTSD symptoms for the rest of my life. I had convinced myself that dealing with a month of symptoms before the anniversary, plus the periodic flashbacks and nightmares that would pop up throughout the year after various triggers, was progress compared to how it used to be, and that was really as good as I could expect my life to get.
And then I heard about you and you talked me into spending a half-day session with you (which scared the bejeesus out of me, but I went anyway)…and my life changed after that 1 session. No more nightmares. No more flashbacks. No more panic attacks. The first anniversary in 14 years where I had no symptoms…in fact, the entire day, I actually *forgot* it was the anniversary! I only remembered it that night. And I was fine. I am better than fine…I am happy. And for the first time in 14 years, I finally feel free of him. I can be myself and be happy and not be scared of shadows anymore.
Thank you so much for helping me find this place.
Like we said on the phone…it’s hard to put this into words. I could write a very long email about all the ways it has changed me, but I think the best way to describe it is with a short explanation and a comment a very close friend made to me recently.
He said, “Anne-Marie, you have the least amount of baggage than anyone I have ever met.” And the best way I could describe the change is:
Absolute freedom. Living life the way it should be lived, really LIVING. I am present with the people that I’m with, I’m in the moment. People have told me lately that I’m glowing. I laugh whole-heartedly now and when I smile my eyes light up and I mean every smile. I have more love inside me than I’ve ever had and I’m able to share my whole self with people. I look at tough times as lessons now and things don’t seem to bother me the way they bother other people. I am enjoying life all the time and everyone is noticing it.
It’s a whole new world now.
Thank you, Dr. Quintal for giving me this gift.
What else can I say but thank you? Since our full day session my life has been completely rearranged and my thought patterns transformed. Until our session a few weeks ago, the past five years of my life were dictated by my feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness, guilt, shame and resentment. These feelings ultimately stemmed from my past involving family issues and sexual violence. Only after these issues were “cleared”, did I fully begin to realize the extent to which these events were continuing to impact me on a daily basis.
Since our meeting, I no longer struggle with these negative feelings or painful memories. I feel much happier and lighter. One of my greatest fears was that the best part of me had been sacrificed, compromised and was lost to the past. I now know that this is not the truth and that the best possible version of me is the one that I am continuing to become every day. The week after our first meeting, I lost eight pounds. I feel more energized and motivated to truly begin to care for myself. I now feel motivated to begin taking charge of my own life and am excited about what my future holds; I have even decided to go back to school this fall for counseling, as I was so inspired by our encounter. Three people have asked me if I am pregnant (which I am not!) because they say that I have a “glow” about me!
I have never been in therapy before and was extremely doubtful of the miraculous claims made about the success of RRT. I even tried convincing myself to cancel my appointment, telling myself that I was doing better. However, in the end I decided to give RRT a chance and I am so thankful that I did. Now I KNOW that I am doing better! I hope that this message will allow other skeptics in need the courage to follow through as it will undoubtedly lead to a life-altering experience.
Thank you for everything, Dr. Quintal, and I wish you all the best!
To Whom It May Concern,
I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Jason Quintal several years ago. Since that time, whenever my patients have asked for a qualified psychotherapist, I refer them to Dr. Quintal without hesitation.
His ability to quickly resolve issues coupled with his positive attitude and personality work well with almost all individuals. As a result, I have sent home a wide variety of patients what he has treated compassionately and effectively time and time again.
Furthermore, Dr. Quintal is a valuable asset to our community and it has been an honor to work with him. I have received many thanks from the very patients to who I referred.
Dr. Quintal is an exceptional psychotherapist and I would highly recommend him to any of my patients as well as to a member of my own family.
I am a family medicine physician, who has practiced medicine in Lakewood Ranch for the past five years. I have found over the years that I have had many patients who are in desperate need of a good psychotherapist. It was not until January of 2006, when I was first introduced to Dr. Jason S. Quintal, that I found such a therapist. I was immediately impressed with his openness, insight, credentials, manner and his knowledge of his profession.
Since that time, I have referred many patients to Dr. Quintal and have received glowing reports back from them. His positive, upbeat demeanor and forward thinking therapeutic techniques have been much appreciated by my patients. I know that Dr. Quintal has improved the quality of life of many of my patients. Dr. Quintal is well respected in the Lakewood Ranch community, and both myself and my partners continue to refer mutual patients to him.
Alexandre H., M.D.
I am so very grateful for what you do. I feel amazing – I am amazing!
There’s been such an incredible change in me that I don’t think that even you can fully comprehend it.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you so much for taking the time to see me and for helping. Like I said I was very nervous the night before to face my “demons” but now only a few days later I now see myself asking how I was afraid. You truly did help me. My bed isn’t torn up every morning. I’m not so jumpy and most of all able to do daily things without any obstacles that were once in my way. I can never thank you enough.
It really worked and I feel entirely like a brand new person. I still can’t get over how much better I feel.
Thank you so much for helping me and taking the time out of your busy schedule.
Once more, thank you so much!!!
Dear Dr. Quintal,
I am not quite sure how to put this into words because thank you doesn’t start to say how grateful we are for everything you did for Hailey. She is so much happier. She sleeps through the night and wakes up rested, happy and safe. Her attitude is so much lighter and more upbeat. It is amazing. If you ever need a reference for a potential new client I would be honored to give you one. Thank you again so much for everything.
With heartfelt thanks from me, and from Teddie ?
No more guilt and I feel much better because I am able to grieve and miss her without feeling like I did anything wrong.
I have no words to describe how grateful I am that you helped my daughter. Thank you so very much.
“Thank you” just doesn’t seem like enough…I deeply appreciate the work you did with me and I do feel lighter/brighter. You have a great gift for helping and I really enjoyed our time together.
Just wanted to write a note to say thanks again for all your help. I enjoyed coming to talk with you and listening to your advice. Best wishes as you build your practice in Lakewood Ranch. You’ve been a true blessing to my life.
Dear Dr. Quintal,
I wish to thank you again. Since our day together I have felt better. The work we did is paying dividends in my personal, professional, and community life.
You are a compassionate man and I felt comfortable sharing my experiences. The patience and warmth you showed me afforded me the environment for change.
You may find comfort in the knowledge that I’ve faced some “tests” since our meeting. The “John” I hope to see more often has done a wonderful job. We continue to grow and spread the good news. I shared my experience with Dr. Curts and thanked her for the introduction.
If you ever need anything, don’t hesitate to call upon me. I can never repay you, but offer without condition my best efforts.
I AM HAPPY. The BEST is TODAY AND EVERYDAY I CAN say “NOW I CAN.”
Thank you so much for everything. You helped me put so much into perspective & realize that Blair has never left us.
You are not only a terrific doctor but a wonderful person.
With much love & thanks,
My life was enriched by meeting you in Brooksville. Thanks for the friendship. You are truly awesome.
Happy Holidays Dr Quintal! Things are wonderful in my life and I wanted to take a moment to say thank you again for helping me find my way back to the light. I find the very best in everyday and enjoy it. The war is finally over. Keep up the good work.
Warm personal regards,
I am doing well. No panic attacks since I saw Dr Quintal…although still
dealing with some avoidance and anxiety issues…it’s to be expected I think after 15 years of this. I feel 100% better though…I have a sense of well being that I almost didn’t recognize at first. I have been reading books and I am trying to learn to meditate. Ya know what is really odd? I haven’t felt much like drinking AT ALL. WTF!? I don’t really care… but how odd? All good stuff!
Hey Dr Q,
Again I just wanted to thank you so very much, I really appreciate what you did for me. It is now monday 12/17/07 10:14PM and I still have not dipped. It is amazing, I mean from time to time, I have a slight urge to or desire to want a dip, but I put it out of my mind, and just continue doing what I was doing and next thing I know, it is like an hour or 2 hours later.
I am not experiencing any over whelming urges, or cravings. From time to time, I feel like I’m stoned, and foggy headed I think that might be some withdrawal symptoms, but it isnt that bad…
Overall this is incredible, I am amazed at how easy this has been for me…
Thanks again so much…. I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate this…
Dear Dr. Quintal,
The difference in Vickie is astounding; she is so loving and surer of herself now. We are really “back together again” I would say you had more than a “hand in it” for which I deeply thank you.
Today’s time with you meant so much to me. Thanks for the difference you’ve made in my life.
Just wanted to say thank you for everything. Things in my life are really starting to look up, and I’m feeling much better about myself these days. The session you did made me my anxiety feelings go away about something that had been bothering me and when I think about what happened I still don’t have a sick feeling. That was amazing!
Thanks so much!!
How can I thank you enough for giving me my Becky back?
