Patient testimonial from a man that recovered from PTSD, anxiety, panic attacks, and anger issues after treatment with Rapid Resolution Therapy. Dr. Quintal & Associates are professional counselors based in Sarasota, FL that successfully treat depression, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD and other mental health conditions with both traditional therapy and Rapid Resolution Therapy.
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.
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.
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.
