I was in a dark place feeling like there was nowhere to turn for help. I never was willing to try therapy, as I viewed it as a sign of weakness, but at this point in my life, I knew I needed help. That’s when I met Rebecca Tymeck, and everything changed for me. She started treating me and I saw that I could emerge from this “dark place” to make the necessary changes in my life to make me a better husband, father, and person. Becca is insightful, caring, and has an extremely positive attitude…all strong qualities you would want in a good therapist! Beyond that, she really takes the time to know and understand her clients on a personal level, and has always been there to support me and help me navigate through these difficult times. In just a few short months, I feel that my mental health has improved exponentially, and although she always gives me the credit for this change saying “you are the one putting the work in and making these changes”, I know simply could not have done it without her by my side. I am forever grateful for everything she has done for me.

I highly recommend both Rebecca Tymeck and Advance Counseling to anyone looking to engage in therapy. They are true professionals who can really help you get back on track! MD

 

My boyfriend and I were looking for a couples therapist for months, and our prayers were answered with Elaine (Lanie) Terrana. We wanted someone who would be unbiased, professional, and on our team through our venture in communicating better. Elaine encompasses all of those aspects and more. She is easy to speak to, compassionate, and most importantly on both of our sides. We both feel very comfortable talking to her and have found great value in her feedback. She created a safe space from our first meeting and continues to maintain it through each week. We look forward to continuing our journey with her. I can confidently recommend Elaine Terrana (and Advanced Counseling Associates) to those looking for guidance, compassion, and support.

I see Dan Costello and it’s my first time ever feeling like therapy helps and is of tremendous value when you are guided by someone of such high caliber as Dan. I have had breakthroughs and numerous “..ahhh, haaa” moments with Dan. He is gifted spiritually and has written an incredible book… “It’s All Good”. Dan is the real deal- genuine and honest while always encouraging me to be the next best version of myself. Namaste and AlohaWith gratitude-Yvonne A

For a couple years now I have been in and out of therapy, struggling to find my path and trying to discover my identity. I've had trouble with decision making, ambivalence and just overall confidence. I've had one therapist before but they don't compare to what Dan Costello has done for me. Through his wisdom and diverse background, Dan has been able to help me gain a lot of my confidence back and has truly been an inspiration, showing me that there's a lot more importance and depth to life than I once thought. I've become more confident, spiritual and overall optimistic about my life and I highly recommend Dan Costello to anyone struggling in any way or to anyone looking to better themselves as a person. Dan has shown he's really cared and I can gladly say he's felt like more of a friend than a therapist which is something I value greatly.

As a Veteran, I was apprehensive about starting Therapy. Ms. Asner put me in contact with Dan Costello. Dan was also a Veteran and our connection was immediate. I have been seeing Dan for over a year. He has helped me through alcohol and PTSD issues. Dan has become my go to person to talk safely about any and all issues in my life. More importantly he has been with me for Good and bad over the last year. He has been able to draw out feelings I have suppressed for years. I would recommend him for any Veteran or non-Vet, No matter your life experience. He is a caring, loving person that puts his patience first.

UPDATE 01-19-22Just thought that I would check in and report how things have been going with therapy. I really don't know how I managed my life before my sessions with Dan. He's been a beacon in the fog, guiding me on my journey to deal with past traumas, even those that I didn't realize I have. It's wonderful to have someone who can help me to see the directions in which I need to take myself to keep growing and moving onward. Much of the time, that involves a journey to look inward. This has been painful at times, but Dan has been there supporting me every step of the way. This is a continuing journey, one that I can look back at and see how far I've come over the past year. I still can't express how grateful I am.ORIGINAL REVIEW 2021In the past I have had such negative experiences with other therapists that I fell into a mindset of just dealing with things myself. This year, the depression, anxiety, and pain just came to a head where I couldn't handle it on my own anymore. I finally sought out help.Advanced Counseling Associates has quite literally been a godssend. My therapist, Dan Costello, is honestly one of the most amazing and genuine people I've ever met. Every week I look forward to our conversations. He's compassionate, wise, and I feel like I'm in a safe space with him, even when we delve into more difficult thoughts. I never feel as if I'm being judged. I can definitely say I'm in a better place than I was even though I know there's much more work to do. I'm so grateful to have Dan walking by my side to guide me.If you need help, please don't wait as long as I did. I am so happy that I sought help and highly recommend Advanced Counseling Services to anyone who is ready to take that first step.

I had written a couple reviews previously, but I wanted to provide an update. Dan Costello has been treating me for more than a year now, and it has been wonderful. Thanks in large part to his attentiveness and guidance, I have been in such a good place mentally. He understands and cares. For many years I had suffered from many, sometimes debilitating, psychological issues. But with Dan's excellent help and guidance, I am working through those issues. I don't think I have ever been in a better head space. I cannot thank Dan Costello and Advanced Counseling Associates enough for all of their help.

My son is an adopted child diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, RAD, and a mild case of autism. He was seeing a few therapists for around four years. In that time we were having such a hard time having him opened up and telling us how he felt and learning how to control his outbursts. The counseling center we were going to had many therapist and there was always such a big turn around so they were always changing counselors on him. I decided it was time for us to find a private office so I can get the help my son needed. After looking online I found Advance Counseling Associates. I called up and specifically asked for a male counselor in which you accommodated me with Dan. We have been going to him for around eight weeks and in that eight weeks my son has opened up more than he did in four years! We are having such positive progress with him and cannot thank Dan enough for what he is doing for our family. Hopefully we can be with Dan for a long time.

I have been in and out of therapy a good majority of my life. Not until I found Dan Costello did I make true progress. The best counselor I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Myself, my family and marriage have never been better, and for that I thank you Dan.
00:32 12 Nov 21
I have had Ryan Duck now for about a year maybe a little less, HE IS THE BEST. I feel always feel like I can say anything and not be judged. He also never pushed you to speak about anything that you’re notReady to as well. I feel like the world is off my shoulders just a bit since talking to him. Thank you

I have been dealing with depression and anxiety for most of my adult life and have seen several therapists for it. Nothing made a difference until I met Dan Costello from Advanced Counseling Associates. I was in an emotional crisis that was also effecting my marriage. Dan is compassionate and had an immediate calming influence on me and over the course of a few months was able to give me tools to help myself. Dan’s spiritual counseling and use of Reiki was very healing for me. Dan is very easy to talk to. I feel blessed to have him as my therapist, teacher and now friend. My life has improved dramatically and so has my marriage. I have Dan Costello to thank for that and I am forever grateful.
23:08 26 Jul 21
I very much appreciate the help I get from Dan Costello. He is easy to speak to and very compassionate and spiritual and down to earth. I feel at ease after our sessions.

Meeting with Lisa Kahn at Advanced Counseling Associates has been wonderful. I've been experiencing anxiety that was taking over my life.

I've found great value in her feedback and techniques to shift the mindset. Lisa has helped me be more confident and hopeful overall. I highly recommend Advanced Counseling Associates to anyone looking for guidance and compassion.

My experience with Advance Counseling has been absolutely wonderful. My life has changed drastically and for the better. Lisa has given me so much support as we continue to work on new challenges but most important Lisa has taught me to look at life from a different prospective. I feel honored to talk to her weekly.

I have had the honor and pleasure of having Jennifer McDonough as my therapist @ Advanced Counseling Associates for a number of months. Although I am a relatively new client, I can say with confidence that Ms. McDonough is awesome. She is impartial, knowledgeable, professional, and most of all truly nonjudgmental. She is a tremendous listener and always provides detailed feedback on my vast array of stressors. In my opinion, there is no middle ground with respect to therapy. Either you're good or you're bad. Ms. McDonough represents the gold standard of excellence.

Earlier this year i was diagnosed with depression, and recommended to this place for a therapist. Dan Costello has been extremely helpful to me in helping me recover through these times. I can’t thank him and this place enough for giving me what i needed to start healing myself and move past this part of my life
20:06 24 Mar 21
Outstanding!The therapist saw my girlfriend and I for couples therapy and promptly understood the underlining issues and addressed them. The atmosphere is both safe and truthful, you will be confronting your issues head on and getting solid advice. If you are looking to put the work in and get serious help for any emotional and mental issue please consider them.

Rebecca (Becca) Tymeck has saved my life. She is new to this practice and when she was transferring I wasn’t willing to not stay with her. She is sweet and reliable. I’ve been seeing Becca for awhile now and I look forward to speaking with her every week. She helps me with all my issues and is there to listen to me when I just need to talk. I don’t know where i would be without her! She’s the best, I highly recommend her!!

My son was a patient of Advanced counseling for over two years. He went in once a week. It was very difficult to find someone to work with my son. He had severe trust issues and high anxiety. That all changed once we found advanced. The office is warm and welcoming and the staff at the desk is so friendly. The counselors were so patient with my son. After three weeks of visits he felt comfortable going, almost excited. They created a safe space he could express himself. He didn't even want me going in with him anymore. That right there showed me they gained his trust. Over the course of his visits his anxiety decreased, his self confidence was being restored. Now two years later he still seeks this safe space but only when he feels it's needed. I am so glad we found advanced. It's been a game changer.

I cannot say enough good things about Advanced Counseling. I found them at a point in my life when I was dealing with an almost impossible situation with regard to custody and care of one of my adult special needs kids. My therapist, Debra, is like an island in the middle of a stormy sea. She has given me the tools that I needed to deal with my narcissistic EX. If you are even remotely contemplating the concept of therapy my advice to you would be "do it!". It is amazing how much better you will feel once you have given over the problems that you are dealing with to a therapist who can guide you in the right direction and help you to access the tools that you already possess to deal with the issues that you feel powerless to deal with. Therapy equals empowerment!
