Dr. Urban is INCREDIBLE. She literally saved my
life and continues to help me with my stress, anxiety, and whatever
else comes up. I have been seeing Dr. Urban every week (at least
once a week!) for the past year and she really has brought out the
best in me. Before this, I had never talked to anyone before and
was scared/ashamed. Now I tell all of my friends how great it is
to see a therapist. It is so great to see Dr. Urban and I can honestly
say I do not know where I would be without her.
I was a patient of yours many yrs ago in 1994. You helped me heal
and find strength to eventually leave a domestic violence situation.
Today I was sorting through an old memory box of mine, I store keepsakes
in throughout my life. And I came across a card from you from 1994
you wrote to me and wrote- "I hope you have happiness and reach
for the stars always." Throughout the years I thought of you
as I gaze at my now husband and beautiful life I created and know
that it was your therapy that impacted my life to make it better.
I got married to a good man in 2003 and my daughter is a Rn now
getting married soon. She chose to have no contact with her bio
dad. Smart choice. And her stepfather had been a blessing as a male
role model to her. Thank you for your encouragement and helping
me to make healthy life choices. At this point in my life I would
like to perhaps do some sort of volunteer work to help women of
domestic violence the way I was helped. After all these years I
again thank you and I hope all is well with you.
I am currently working with Dr. Urban for the 2nd time in my life,
and I came back after 6 years because her guidance was so impactful
the first time. She provided a space of exploration and acceptance
in which I came to understand and could begin to heal my depression,
anxiety, and disordered eating. Now, after only a few months of
our renewed therapist-patient partnership, she is helping me to
explore my behavioral patterns of codependency and to delve into
many suppressed emotions and internalizations that have kept me
feeling "stuck" on the bridge from adolescence to adulthood.
For a while, I thought that my lack of clarity, aimlessness, exhaustion,
and self-criticism were things that could be cured through productivity
and organization training, self-help books, and a dedication to
positivity. But now that I've been digging into the really deep
stuff in Dr. Urban's care, I know that surface-level tactics will
never provide long-term peace. I have seen other therapists (while
away at college) but Dr. Urban is the only one who has fostered
empowerment in me and has helped me to challenge my assumptions.
If everyone had a Dr. Urban, the world would be a very enlightened,
Dr. Urban is great! She
is so easy to talk to and you really feel like she listens. She
comes up with great solutions to different situations. I look forward
to our appointments whenever we have them. She is a consummate professional
and has certainly helped me in many ways for which I am grateful.
Dr. Mena Urban is an extremely caring and understanding
therapist. She is a highly skilled professional who helps her patients
become happier and better functioning human beings. Under her care,
I have learned to deal with many of the issues that can make people
miserable (e.g. depression, sudden loss of a spouse, difficulties
with children, to name a few). She has helped me discover the joy,
wonder and love to be found in living. Dr. Urban is very calm and
patient, important qualities for the task of finding a new and improved
way to live. She has absolutely helped me turn my life around, a
feat I could never have accomplished without the guidance of a professional.
I recommend her to anyone who has a problem whether it be large
or small. We all have problems that threaten to beat us down in
life. Dr. Urban can help you like she helped me!.
Dr. Urban has been a saving grace in my life for
almost 2 years now! She really helps me to see things clearly. I
have learned to process emotions, particularly stress and frustration
with a lot less overwhelm and disagreement. My life was filled with
so much anxiety, anxiety that was keeping me from living a normal
and healthy life. I struggled for years to get to the bottom of
my problem in order to change them and this happened with Dr. Urban
is very calming and easy to talk to. She makes me feel very safe
and really listens to my issues. With her direction, I find my own
answers, and we work together to implement better life skills that
Dr. Mena is not someone
who listens to respond to your problems, but she listens to understand
them so you can figure out how to respond yourself. I have never
been comfortable talking about personal things, but I am completely
at ease when I'm with her. She helped me make the changes necessary
to live my very best life, and I can't be more thankful. I recommend
anyone and everyone I know to her because she is truly so incredibly
helpful. The most important thing I looked for when seeking someone
to talk with was patience, and Dr. Mena was and is the best choice
Dr. Urban has been and is an angel on my journey.
I was stuck and she provided me with a variety of tools and supported
me. Her perfect blend of intelligence and wisdom are exactly what
I need to navigate "the tricky parts" of life. She truly
is awesome and I highly recommend her. I'm grateful for all that
she has done for me but mostly the work that she makes me want to
do for "me".
Life is too precious to let challenges hold
you back. Let Dr. Urban
help you as she has
helped so many others.
