I have been going to Dr. Alberti for several years. She has counseled me with my husband, daughter and even most recently my parents. She does not just sit there and listen to you talk, she explains through charts, pulling out inserts of books and her highly intellectual knowledge of why exactly we think the way we do. She has taught me to change my thinking which changed my life. She has numerous degrees and also has a Bullying Center in Buffalo New York named after her. She is very passionate and has been very instrumental towards my recovery of anxiety, depression and traits of borderline personality disorder. You get the REAL DEAL when you go to her! Well worth my time. Happy I stumbled upon such a great mentor!

When Dr. Alberti writes her book I will be first in line to get one!! Not only does she know what she is talking about -- she knows what I am talking about!! She gets me. With her help, I am on my way to a solid, healthy relationship (which I avoided all my life and never knew why). If you need someone to talk to.... give her a call. She will get to the bottom of what is troubling you without you even knowing it!

Dr. Jean M. Alberti is a great person and evaluate her patients closely. She takes great care in explaining the treatment plan, and advising in simple terms. She helped me immensely to gain self confidence, and recover from the previous dilemma. I am very pleased with the results after one session. Dr. Alberti is highly recommended to everyone.
Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
