"For the first time since I lost my favorite doctor to cancer, I have hope in the medical system. She actually listened and didn’t make me feel rushed or dismissed. It feels like she really cares for my wellbeing, wanted to know everything she could to help my conditions, and that’s rare to find. I’m so glad I found her! Brenda Galvez is the absolute best!"

"Serenity has been a magical place of healing for me. They didn’t just give me my life back. They gave me my most authentic self. Serenity helped me change my entire mindset. I now wake up everyday with a heart full of gratitude thankful for the gift of being alive each day. I see beauty everywhere around me. I have never experienced a place where every single person that works there has your healing and well being place on their hearts. They are so uplifting, encouraging, loving and dependable. They are people that you can count on to do what they say they will do. These wonderful human beings will always have a special place in my heart. I consider them my friends and family. I never thought that I could feel this full of joy. I highly recommend Serenity to anyone that wants to live the life they deserve."

"Take back your life seemed cheesy to me but seriously I did TMS in July and as of October my life is totally different. I was barely able to get out of bed and I was so broken. Going all in with Serenity has totally changed my life. I remember around week three waking up and feeling weird and realizing I had never woken up and been happy. Back in June I could barely function now I wake up and I am happy I be alive and able to process my emotions and build Bette habits and relationships. For me it worked 100%. It definitely is a lot of work. I made sure I never missed a day and there were occasional challenges to work around with insurance and finding the right tech and schedule but you got this. You deserve to be happy."

"The staff here is incredible. the treatment is different from anything I’ve ever experienced. The results take some time. But if you stick with it, you will see results. My life has been completely transformed for the better. I’ve been in therapy for years and prescribed almost every depression/anxiety medication available. Nothing worked. Ketamine & TMS was literally my last resort. Now I feel better. My thoughts are better. My outlook is positive. I have more energy, losing weight. Sleeping better. My ability to manage stress and emotions is finally something I can handle. If you’re suffering with depression and anxiety I highly recommend this treatment. It is a large commitment, but remember, you are worth it! My tech, Ceirra. Saved my life. Thank you Sarah. And all of you at serenity!"

"First, word to the wise: go in to make your appointments. Don't call, because the building's phone system is dodgy. Not Serenity's fault, but it does take hours because every other company in that building is on the same system, I think. HOWEVER! It is 100% worth it to get treatment here. I love seeing Brenda. I always feel better after our appointments, and she actually listens to me about how whether I think a treatment option is working for me or not. A total lifesaver during this insane shortage, helping me find an alternative that works so I can stay consistent with my treatment. The staff are all sweet and helpful, as well, and fun to chat with. I definitely recommend this place."

"Brenda Galvez Is the BEST person first of all. The word Gratitude came to mind after my very first visit. Not only has she taken great care of my health, but also she is lovely to speak with. It’s rare to find a doctor that combines such personal touches and care for a patient as a person with outstanding quality of medical care. I highly recommend becoming her patient! I barely waited to be helped when I checked in. The staff and Brenda Galvez were all very friendly and helpful. Brenda really took her time to explain my conditions with me as well as my treatment options. I had a great visit and the doctor’s demeanor has really put me at ease so I highly recommend this clinic."

Brenda Galvez is also awesome. She gives you so many options for treatment and lets you be apart of the decision making process for medications and treatment. I’ve been going here since about September, but even though it hasn’t been a super long time, I’m so happy with the care and service I’ve received this far."

"I had my first appointment with Sarah Samsky and she made me feel incredibly comfortable, safe, and validated the feelings I was having that also prevented me from seeking help sooner. She made me feel less insecure and made me relieved that I finally reached out for some help with my mental health. I have a complex medical history and she was incredibly thorough and asked to have some time to figure out the best course of action so she can treat me in the best way possible without having interactions with other medications/flare ups of diseases. Not a lot of providers take the time to get to know their patients/histories and it has caused issues for me in the past with providers not listening/understanding what all is happening with my health. It’s been a breathe of fresh air to feel heard and have someone on my team rooting for me to get better as a whole - not just treating my symptoms. I’m so glad I reached out and that she was so welcoming!"

"I have absolutely loved working with Serenity. I notice big differences in the way I feel and how I view things. Serenity is such a positive environment and everyone there wants for nothing more than to help you feel like you are the most important person. I feel safe and secure there. Brenda Galvez has been critical in me getting to where I am today. To have her really listen to me is something that I hadn't experienced in a provider. She has been such a blessing. I would highly recommend Serenity to anyone."

I felt extremely comfortable talking to her and she explained everything to me perfectly. I was able to be seen the same day my family Dr contacted them. The whole staff was extremely kind and helpful. I have never felt so welcomed or cared for like I did coming to Serenity!!

I always get so nervous going to any dr but Dr Galvez was great! She was very calming, took her time with me, I didn’t feel rushed at all. I felt like she truly cared!

When I called to schedule an appointment, they asked me detailed questions to ensure that they could provide me with the treatment I needed. When I met with my provider, Brenda, she took great care to understand my concerns and needs. I felt truly validated, understood, and hopeful for the first time in a long time. Brenda displayed a refreshing balance of professionalism, friendliness, and a personable demeanor. The front end staff have also been very kind and helpful. I highly recommend Serenity if you are thinking about getting mental health treatment."
