WHAT CLIENTS HAVE SAID
Insights Group provided our teachers with an informative and helpful professional development presentation on Managing the Emotion of Anxiety.
Robin and Tom created an easy to understand presentation, offering professional guidance to our teachers regarding symptoms of anxiety to be aware of and look for as we prepared for our students to return back to in-person education, post-quarantine. As a team, they guided us through an engaging discussion, following up with a reflection on the information. Above and beyond the presentation, they integrated fun prizes and rewards to acknowledge the teachers’ experience during the pandemic and which left our teachers smiling. We highly recommend Insights Group for your teachers’ professional development.
In preparation for returning to the classroom after remote teaching for months, we knew we needed to give our students and teachers the tools they needed to be successful.
The St. Mary Academy professional development team immediately thought of Robin Buckley, Ph.D., and Tom Grebouski, Ph.D., LCMHC, of Insights Group, as the perfect resource. Dr. Buckley and Dr. Grebouski have supported our students and teachers in the past, and we felt confident that they could help us during this unprecedented time. Dr. Buckley replied to our request for a teachers’ workshop with enthusiasm. She succeeded in customizing a workshop that fit our current needs. It was important to her to make sure she knew her audience and provided us with the most accurate and relevant information. Since Dr. Grebouski had done a workshop for our teachers on supporting students with anxiety a few years ago, we were interested in a workshop to address not only student concerns about Covid-19 but also teachers’ possible anxieties. Dr. Buckley immediately saw the value in that and put together an engaging presentation that was interactive and empowering. After the workshop, our staff felt more equipped to deal with anxieties that they and their students might be feeling. The breakout sessions offered small groups the time needed to ask questions and allowed for personal connections to be shared. The workshop was well thought out and purposeful. It helped build confidence by providing the tools our staff needed and reduced stress among all who attended. Dr. Buckley and Dr. Grebouski have a relaxed and calming effect on people. They were able to address a very complicated topic, with a lot of knowledge and compassion for our staff and students. In these unknown times, with more questions than answers, it was reassuring to have the Insights Group be there for us.
Dr. Tom is incredibly effective at getting the best results from his clients to hit their goals quickly.
Tom believes in treating his clients in a way to best address their needs and goals, but to get results so that their struggles and obstacles become manageable as quickly as possible. His approach works because he looks at his clients as individuals, rather than fitting into a typical mold.
Tom Grebouski has been working with my daughter for a little over a year now. I cannot say enough about him.
Tom is absolutely amazing with children and adults of all ages. My daughter was going through an extremely difficult time with her anxiety. It was at an all-time high and greatly affecting her school days. As soon as we reached out to Tom he not only began seeing her, but he worked with my husband and me, as well. He also held a few workshops at her school on anxiety and met with her teachers to give them strategies to help her be more successful in her classes. This approach set the foundation for EVERYONE to be on the same page. It set our daughter on a path in which she could succeed because everyone around her understood and was trying to work with her in a similar way. This plan not only helped to ease her anxiety, but it allowed her to start taking control of her feelings and her fears.
There are so many qualities Tom has that I can rave about, but I think his accessibility and compassion are among the best. If we had questions, we could reach out to him and he would get back to us right away. The same held true for her teachers. He looked at our daughter and you could tell he was treating her for the person she was. He wasn’t trying to get her to fit a mold or change, he was simply trying to bring the best out in her by giving her tools and strategies so she could gain self-confidence.
Tom truly cares, not only about his patients but about their families as well. The difference we saw in our little girl was AMAZING. He had a way of getting our 10-year-old to truly think. With every appointment, we saw so much progress. He had a way of helping her navigate the situations that seemed overwhelming to her and helped her to take things one step at a time so her day to day schedule became much more manageable.
Every day we see her confidence growing, we hear how she is using Tom’s strategies and can see a tremendous difference. When we think back to a year ago, it is as if we are looking at a different child. She is doing so much better in school, her grades have improved, her attitude has improved, she is much more positive. When she has a difficult day, she can now reflect on what she could try to do differently the next time she is in a similar situation.
Tom was able to connect with her in a way we didn’t know how to at a very difficult time. He guided us with calm compassion and extensive knowledge, letting us know it was going to be ok. He encouraged us, directed us, and mostly, he supported us.
I would highly recommend him, not only for children but for adults, as well. If you are looking for measurable results you don’t have to look any further than Tom.
Dr. Tom has helped my daughter IMMENSELY. She was suffering from extreme anxiety about her barn/horse/trainer this past Spring. He’s given her the tools to deal with SO much. And she’s handling things so much better. Every time she talks to him, she’s so happy and relaxed. He’s wonderful, and we love him alot.
You changed our son’s life so successfully. He told me he scored 32 points during the basketball travel team try-out scrimmage game last weekend and had never felt more confident shooting. He said there was no one at tryouts that he would want to trade places with because his performance was one of the best. It is such a change to hear him talking so confidently. When I was worried about something recently, he immediately stated some strategies and ways to think about the situation to try to help me. He said he learned them from Dr. Tom and that they are really helpful.
I love my sessions with Dr. Tom. He’s helping me get over my scarcity mindset and scale my business. I’m very happy with how everything’s going.
Tom is my daughter’s therapist. He has helped my daughter make huge strides with her situation.
Dr. Robin has an excellent grasp of how to open conversations and pull on threads that help unravel thoughts and pathways to better understanding.
She has helped me with my control, my relationships with other women and my husband. During a particularly difficult time recently, she was able to help me decide some next steps with a special friend. I love that she is engaging and kind but very knowledgeable and straightforward in her sessions.
If you or someone you love is LGBTQ and needs someone safe and amazing to talk to I highly recommend Dr. Robin Buckley
at the Insights Group in Rye, NH. She specializes in LGBTQ 🏳️🌈 Psychology services for children over 11, pre-teens and adults. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know her and she is truly an amazing woman who instantly makes you feel at ease and safe.
Doctor Buckley is an outstanding person, helping my sister and I with many things, including self awareness.
Through her classes, Empowering Girls and Psychology In Our Lives, we have learned to condition our brains to value positivity and kindness. My sister and I both agree that she has taught us so much that will continue to help us in the future. The things she has taught us have made it easier for us to transition into a new school. Overall she creates a comfortable environment for kids to be relaxed and she makes it easy to express yourself. We are very thankful for everything she has done.
I was worried about my teenage daughter and felt helpless.
She finally agreed to meet with Dr. Robin after having a panic attack. Knowing she was about to go off to college, she finally understood she needed to address her mental health. She had been to therapy before but had never connected with the therapist. She quickly and naturally connected with Dr. Robin and started to open up to her immediately. I could just see this huge sense of relief come over her after the first session. After a couple of more sessions, I saw a complete 360 with her. She lifted out of her depression and she started talking to me. It’s as if she now had the tools to be able to express herself and feel confident in what she had to say. She put the sessions to use and did the work to help herself. She values Dr. Robin’s advice, respects her as an expert and opens herself up to accepting help. She is now a happier young woman, much more confident, more expressive and more motivated. I am not worried about her anymore and as a mother, that is the greatest feeling I could have. I am so happy we got her in with Dr. Robin, it has been life changing. In addition, the office is warm and inviting. As a patient there you will not feel intimidated or out of place. It feels like a safe place and immediately puts you at ease. I have found Insights to be extremely responsive and I know if help is needed outside of an appointment, I can get it. They genuinely care about you.
Robin provided a great team building session for my annual staff retreat.
Highlights included some goal setting and sharing positive attributes about our team members, along with some short break out sessions for a nice, uplifting session. It was brief but chockfull of great content and coaching. We will be back and I would gladly recommend Robin for team building workshops and other relationship coaching.
Thank you. The [strategies] are giving me a lot of relief. I’ve struggled to gain control over my reactions to spiraling emotions and these methods are helping me stay focused on my goals. My imposter syndrome has lessened and I’m finding myself making consistent steps towards the career I WANT.
Thank you for all of your help these last 6 months. Life changing.
Thank you for all the help in getting to this point. When I started with you, I never would have imagined feeling strong and confident in any way as I am beginning to now.
Our relationship was falling a bit off track. After the adoption of our daughter, we noticed that issues kept coming up between us. It seemed that after 10 years of dating and marriage, the old ways we were interacting weren’t working now that we had more responsibilities in our life. We reached out to Dr. Robin after hearing about her work with some friends and the fact that she worked with gay couples. We didn’t feel comfortable with “couples therapy” but we wanted to make sure to get support before things got us to the point of needing theapy. Dr. Robin’s no nonsense approach kept us on task with homework while still letting us guide the direction of the coaching. We felt like each session led us closer to our relationship goals and in the end, we had a blueprint of how to oversee and direct our marriage in the future. Thanks, Robin!
Dr. Robin’s approach is direct and all business.
As we were taking steps to get married, we knew we didn’t want to repeat the past mistakes from our earlier marriages. We also didn’t want to do couples therapy because we didn’t have issues between us, but we were looking for a way to make our marriage work better than our past experiences. We picked Dr. Robin because we had heard about her business approach to relationships and since both of us work in business (finance and marketing), we decided to try it. We cannot stress enough how amazing her approach is! There was no “deep dive” into our pasts. We focused on where we were and where we wanted to get to. We applied solid frameworks to our relationship, putting it into practical and tactical terms. We noticed improvements in our communication almost immediately and routinely use the plan we created with Dr. Robin in our relationship.
Dr. Robin helped get me back on track.
After losing my job, I felt demoralized. I kept wondering why didn’t they “like me” and how could I expect to find another job in my 50s. My sessions with Dr. Robin first helped me attack the thoughts that were creating the self-defeating emotions and not allowing me to think clearly about my situation. Once I adopted the strategies she taught me, I was then able to define what I wanted in my next career move. I felt empowered, like I could select the right organization which matched my values and interests, rather than needing to take whatever job I might be offered. After only four months of coaching, I was back to job searching and after only three different organizational interviews, I was offered my dream job, earning double what I had been at my original workplace. I honestly don’t think I could’ve done this, especially in such a short period of time, without Dr. Robin.
Working with Dr. Robin has been nothing short of exceptional.
My husband and I work together and had blurred lines of when to shut off business and get back to being present in our relationship and family. Using relatable business scenarios my husband and I were able to make easy, but life-changing alterations that have already helped to ensure our long-term strength and happiness as a couple. It has also to allowed us to be a positive example to our child, and as a byproduct a more productive and successful team within our business as well. Forever thankful to have met Dr. Robin!
I absolutely love [Elian], I am so grateful to have a therapist like her.
She is the best therapist I have ever had and her energy is warm, comforting and safe. I love speaking with her and she has truly levelled me up and helped me with so much. I feel lucky to have a therapist like her. Everything she says she speaks from her heart, she listens, educates, motivates, and her words have kept me going.
Elian has been wonderful working with our daughter.
Our daughter has generalized anxiety as well as food allergies. While our daughter is only 10, Elian has really been able to have Abby engage in wanting to lead her best life. The small goals set along the way have lead to increased self-confidence as well as happiness.
Over the last year and a half, working with Elian has been so rewarding and helpful through my OCD and eating disorder treatment. I am only leaving the practice because I recently moved to DC. Through our work, I now have a toolset that helps guide me through my daily life, and I have developed more self-confidence and healthy habits.
It is truly amazing how far I have come in just a short amount of time. Elian saw me through several life transitions: new job, new relationship, moving, among so many other things but, more importantly, I am in a place in my life where my OCD and ED are not my primary / daily concerns. I have grown so much and it’s crazy to think about where I was when I first started working with her. Elian is kind and compassionate but knows exactly when to “push.” I am incredibly grateful for all of Elian’s help and cannot recommend her more highly!
We all love working with Elian. [My daughter] was lucky to have Elian work with her at CEDC in residential and also very lucky to work with her now for her OCD. Throughout this journey with [our daughter], Elian has been one of our top 2 practitioners we have worked with.
Elian is a warm and inviting person, she made me feel comfortable very quickly.
She is always very present during our meetings and consistently provides thoughtful insights. She is also great at listening to and deciphering my long, meandering monologues, and responding appropriately. Best therapist I’ve had in ages!
Outstanding! I have been so HAPPY working with Elian.
She is kind, compassionate, and understanding. She combines this with unparalleled expertise in her area. Her ability to connect with me has helped me immensely!! I would highly recommend Elian to my family and friends in need.
Dr. Sharyn Drew
I wanted to thank you for taking the time to review your report with us as well as your patience and support in sitting with us while we processed the information you were sharing. I have to say, it’s kind of a relief to know. I’ve wondered her whole life how to best support who she is and now I will access to so many resources because we have named it. I just wanted to let you know how much your efforts mean to us.
I had a lot of internal battles due to my upbringing and other life events. Suerae was able to help me identify them and work through them in a very positive manner. I’ve never felt judged by her and always get honest and sometimes the hard feedback I need to have a better quality of life. To say she has changed my life for the better would be an understatement. I’ll always appreciate the help she has given me.
I find Matt to be understanding, and compassionate. He understands when to push me to open up, and when I’m not ready to share. He understands what I am dealing with, and how to help me with my anxiety.
Matt is awesome, always gets me thinking of my needs and how to set goals.
She is an excellent, super listener, and a caring soul. She gave me great ideas to put into practice. I started sleeping better right after my first session.
I am so relieved that My son has connected with Sheri. It wasn’t easy to find a therapist for my son. Practices were not taking new patients or teenagers. I was also concerned he wouldn’t talk to anyone. But he looks forward to weekly appointments. He is doing better than he was. Everything is baby steps. But she is someone he can count on to talk to every week. And I know I can call her if I need to if there is ever a concern with my son. I couldn’t be happier that he is seeing her. I am so happy that he has her for a therapist!
