Review for Good Samaritan Ministries, Beaverton, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Good Samaritan Ministries helped me to overcome a horrible habit of picking my fingernails and cuticles until they bled. This habit began as a teenager, with worts on my thumbs. I tried to dig them out; by the time I finally had them burned off with liquid nitrogen, the habit was well entrenched. I am now 58 and the only thing that any counselor has ever said was that picking until I bled was like cutting myself and just as serious. Good Samaritan Ministries offered concrete help with a DBT class, which is Dialectic Behavioral Training. I have received respect and great kindness in their beautiful office. I have begun to volunteer; I want to give to others the gift of hope and healing that has been given to me. For the first time in my life, I am not picking; my fingernails are healthy and beautiful.
