Client Testimonials

Take a look at what our clients have to say about us.

“Marie Acosta has been a colleague and close friend of mine for many years. She has helped me immensely with my own personal struggles as well as my professional development. I know I can go to her for guidance and support as she will listen to me without passing judgment. Marie has provided me with useful tools and techniques that I found to be effective for my self-growth. I cannot thank her enough for helping me through this particularly difficult period in my life. If you are looking for someone who is warm, caring, compassionate, and empathetic yet skilled and professional, she is the one!”

Karen M

“Ashley Beveridge: Amazing counselor. I’ve been seeing her for over a year now and it is the most comforting hour of my week. She really understands the root of the problem and is very engaged throughout the session. Although she is young, she’s very experienced and you feel a sense of relief speaking to her. She also has been there for several emergencies of mine, showing that she really cares for her patients. Very respectful and kind-hearted.”

Shelby W

“I have absolutely loved working with Amy and Kevin for the past few months. I was in a very tough place with an eating disorder, and have fully turned my life around for the better with their help. I constantly refer friends in the Miami area to their services, and have heard amazing things from friends that have already worked with them. I don't feel like a client here, I genuinely feel like they are family, and I can't thank them enough for bringing me so much happiness in my new way of looking at food, fitness, and myself.”

Abbey G

“I have known Marie Acosta professionally for almost two years now. She has shown to be an exceptional therapist, with great interpersonal skills and knowledge. Marie has an exceptional passion for her career inside and outside of work. She exhibits great empathy and works hard to help her clients achieve self growth. I would definitely recommend her as a therapist.”

Lorena P

“Dr. Paula Levine is amazing. She worked with our daughter who at the time was only 9 years old and made a lasting impact on her life. Our daughter loved going to speak with her and truly learned so much from Dr.Levine. Years later our daughter still refers back to what she learned from Dr.Levine. She is professional, easy to work with and undoubtedly the most knowledge in her field of work. We are grateful we found her and highly recommend her.”

Ida O

“Dr Loree is just the calming and grounding force you need in your life. She integrates psychology and yogic philosophy to treat people as whole individuals. I trust her as a referral source for my clients and know they will be in great hands”

Stephanie M

“Ashley is a true testament to what the practice entails. She is professional, organized and thorough. She is an effective communicator and great listener while allowing room for one to express themselves comfortably. Ashley has been a blessing in my life . She is flexible with her schedule and communicates when there is closer availability if this is something you are open too. From the greeting to the conclusion of the session, it is all-around perfection. Through difficult moments, Ashley always has a way of making sure you cracked a smile before ending the session. I can personally say that there is no other person I would rather meet with than Ashley when it comes to receiving the help needed. She is an all-star and one in which you would not regret. Ashley - thank you for everything and just know what you do everyday does make a difference, as it has in my life. . . .”

Jason C

“Working with Sandra Beggs has been a deep and wonderful experience. I'll always remember her as the person who was there, accompanying me, as I made big transformations in confronting a lifelong battle with anxiety. What a joy it is to know that counselors like Sandra exist to help us. Thanks so much, MCRC.”

Jessica W

“Dr Levine is by far the best! The office is super friendly and professional! Highly recommended!”

Sam L

“I have nothing but good things to say about this place, from the setting up of the appointment to the staff. Dr. Iglesias and Dr. Beggs are truly some of the most compassionate and understanding people I have dealt with and I would not hesitate to recommend them, or the facility, to anyone.”

David S

“Laura Urquiaga-Balter has demonstrated a genuine concern for our daughter and her well being during a very traumatic time/incident in her life. She has always made herself available to us whenever we had a situation with our daughter. We cannot find enough words to thank her for her efforts. She is truly an asset to Miami Counseling and Resource Center.”

Alberto B

“My daughter and I have had the blessing to be under the care and counseling of Dr. Sandrow for the past 3 years. His role in providing the essential assistance to my daughter, who has specific learning disabilities (ADHD Combined-Type and Mathematics Disorder) has been invaluable. Not only has Dr. Sandrow addressed the different learning needs of my daughter, he has also provided the emotional support and necessary skills to empower her to perform better at school. Dr. Sandrow administered psycho-educational testing to assure that my daughter learns and develops to her full potential. These results have given me the knowledge I needed to remediate and strengthen her weaknesses as well as to provide her with advanced instruction and placement in her areas of strength. Moreover, we have received family counseling under Dr. Sandrow. His approach is non-judgmental, supportive and thought provoking. Not only is Dr. Sandrow accomplished and experienced in the field of Psychology, he brings the human element and personal approach into his therapy sessions that make all the difference. Under his care, my daughter and I have been able to make the best of our situation and challenges. If you seek an exceptional psychologist who genuinely cares, look no further…. Dr. Sandrow is your solution. Thank you Dr. Sandrow, you are truly remarkable!!!”

Janice S

“I have worked with Dr. David Sandrow and his associates for many years. Dr. Sandrow is a very competent psychologist who had a solid understanding of his patients. HIs testing is on target and his interactions with families is very positive. I would highly recommend Dr. Sandrow and the Miami Counseling and Resource Center.”

Martha M

“I just wanted to applaud the professionalism and great work that the staff and therapists do from this counseling center. I have been a patient of Dr. Susan Scholz-Rubin for many, many years. She is insightful, compassionate, smart, attentive, and always leads with a positive attitude. I have gotten through many difficult moments in my life and feel that she has helped me to become a strong, self sufficient individual with values and a great deal of coping tools. The office staff is equally good. They always maintain a pleasant demeanor, prompt attentive service, and, again, extreme professionalism. I feel as if I am family, not just a client.”

Rick A

“It was wonderful to be under the care and counseling of Laura Urquiaga. Extremely professional and understanding, it was great being able to open up and receive the guidance and help needed at the time. She always found different ways to make the sessions dynamic and resourceful towards reaching my goal. I would highly recommend Laura Urquiaga for therapy.”

Laura J

“It’s so hard to find a doctor that can treat teenagers. We are so grateful to Dr. Antia for putting on the right track with treating our child. She is patient, available, and is methodically thoughtful in her approach with giving medication and talk therapy. I can say only good things about this doctor. Thank you, Dr. Antia. We will always be grateful.”
