Dear Dr.Cakov,
I was just thinking about you and our brief conversation. As you know I was in a very bad and dark place a few weeks ago, and it’s scary to know that had it not been for all of your support I don’t know what would have happened.   I will always be thankful for you being there. 
Just thought I'd let you know...

I saw 4 therapists before I found you. Thank you for all that you do.

You listen to every word I say and you care and understand about human beings. I pray every day and wish people would treat seniors the way you do. God bless you.

I want to thank you for helping me through this difficult time in my life. They say you can change the world by helping one person at a time! I think you have done more than that. You make a difference.
- G.C., Miami Beach FL

Two words: Life Changing. Dr. Cakov helps you take ownership of your issues, helps you discover their root and helps you put a plan in place to address them. She is honest, thought provoking and what I like most, knows when her job is done and lets you go.

Thank you so much for teaching me how to handle myself. You are a wonderful reality check. Take care. Thank you, thank you and thank you.

I met Dr. Cakov when dealing with a family tragedy as well as needing to make some changes in my life… meaning closing a lot of old chapters and old habits. I was depressed, my mind was constantly racing and it became hard to think. I needed some help. When reaching out in a new city, Dr. Cakov was the first to call me back, welcoming me to just come in and talk. To this day, that was one of the most beneficial "talks" of my life. For months (once a week) she helped me work through some very difficult times, grow up and find myself again. She always had faith in me, and challenged me to find faith in myself again, it worked. I recommend her to everyone I know that could use some help...I am forever grateful to Dr. Cakov, she is a friend for life.

Time with Dr. Cakov is time well spent. She has a way of taking all of the things swirling around in your head and putting them in a nice, neat row so all of a sudden, you can breathe again, see the sunshine through the clouds, manage your stress load, and understand the 'true issue/cause' rather than dwelling on all of the small, unrelated matters. Better than that, she simply listens and guides you to that place, letting you feel the accomplishment of getting there on your own, rather than being dependent on her to carry you there. She provides the tools you need to think it through and manage, on your own. It's just the therapy you need, when you need it.

I want to take the opportunity to say a special "thank you" to you for all your insight and help during a period of great uncertainty and upheaval in my life. You were a real godsend. When I met you, I was stuck in a repeating, daily loop of anxiety that had become intrusive and debilitating. No matter how hellish my anxiety felt, our weekly meetings always provided a safe haven for me to unload, listen and receive insight into how things could be different in my life. I never failed to leave your office feeling refreshed and empowered to implement the things that I'd learned. I will always be thankful for the book "Buddha's Brain" that you lent me and for the tangible sense of peace that you imparted during the final months.I'm in a much more tranquil, balanced and happy frame these days and you will be pleased to know, not debilitated by anxiety anymore. I am taking things slow and being mindful to enjoy the NOW.

Thanks again for all you do! And thank you for making a difference in my life!
