“In Manhattan, I've been to several holistic psychotherapists over the years. Dr. Mongno is the only one that I feel really understands me at a more essential-self level. He is a very good, perceptive listener, and gives manageable advice (which to me is a best point for any therapist). His perceptions and suggestions simply make good sense. If you're looking for the best integrative psychotherapy in the city, then call Dr. Mongno.”
