Dr. Miriam Galindo is a wise, caring professional and a wonderful human being.
I came to this site in search of Dr. Galindo’s contact info. I wanted to track her down to give her an update on how everything “turned out” after our sessions with her 13 years ago. It was a difficult, scary period — divorce and custody fight — so I get how emotion and polarization might be the root of the few negative reviews here. Nevertheless, when I told my son, now 18, that some reviews were critical, he said, “Mom, you have to write and tell everyone how great ‘Miss Miriam’ is!”)
Gabriel certainly remembers his Miss Miriam with affection. Only 5, through play therapy she helped him express his troubled feelings and fears. With respect and kindness, she helped him (even at that young age) recognize that what was happening was not his fault. For that, I am forever grateful.
Dr. Galindo also gave me great counseling that I have referred back to time and time again over the years. Among other things, she explained to me, “Our mother and father always form a part of who we are. So if you can find a way to help your son have a loving relationship with BOTH you and his daddy, you will be helping him become a more complete, mentally healthy person”. Luckily I was able to “hear” those words and take that path.
My son started college out in Boston this fall and is doing well. He has a loving relationship with both his father and me. I thank Dr. Galindo for her help in launching this beautiful boy.
