What Our Clients Say

"Janet and Phil are talented and creative facilitators who took on the challenging subject of suicide and presented it in a way that was as entertaining as it was profound. The cooperative exercises were fully engaging and helped us to better understand each other and ourselves in new and amazing ways."

Cindy Gambrill – Manager of Riverbank Self-help Center

“My daughter and I just experienced the Just Say Yes Mime Show held at Monroe Community Center. I have been to many 'Just Say No' shows and I don’t think any of them were as effective as this one. It is perfect for kids K-6. Actually, I think the older kids may get a lot out of it as well.”

Barbara Greene - parent

“I just wanted to say thank you. I was at the suicide prevention talk you did on Feb 28 at St Marys in Colts Neck for DBSA. I had just gotten out of the hospital that afternoon because I wanted to commit suicide. Your program helped me to realize that I had no reason to be ashamed because I wanted to end it all.”

Regina - Member of Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (Colts Neck, NJ)

"...patients in the Dual Diagnosis Program, with whom Janet has had contact, have been consistently positive and highly complimentary of her efforts. Any individual who is able to secure such consistent positive regard from the patients, has my greatest admiration and my sincerest recommendation."

Greg McBride, M,Ed., CAC, coordinator Dual Diagnosis Program - Carrier Foundation

"Janet Berkowitz and Phil Garber, the Creative Communication Builders, put on a wonderfully enlightening, informative, and upbeat workshop entitled, “Creative Crisis Care – Taking Suicide Out of the Closet.” Although the topic is certainly somber, no one should prevent themselves from attending for that reason. Janet’s calm, soft way of speaking is very comforting and puts the participants at ease so that they can share in a warm and accepting environment. I found the activities of the workshop to be varied in nature. Several quiet activities mixed with active ones made the whole experience interesting. The most astounding part is that, during the physical activities, the participants were actually laughing out loud, moving around, and having a good time. It was the most fun I’ve had in a while!"

Maureen Falkowitz - Program Director, Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA), Colts Neck, NJ.

“The creative energy and realism that you have put into your workshop flows through everyone that participates. The clients that have been lucky enough to be part of your recovery workshop have thoroughly enjoyed it. You have the ability to enhance the senses and reach their innermost selves. That is truly beneficial to their treatment.”

Lynn Marie Bowers, CAAP, Recreation Coordinator – Today, Inc. Drug & Alcohol Treatment Center

"....You displayed admirable courage during your mime pieces as you expressed the often tumultuous feelings encountered during the experience of mental illness. It was clear that your performance touched the audience in a manner not achievable through a verbal description of one's illness. In addition, your message of hope that was clearer than any conveyed through the spoken word."

Kimberly Deneka, Assistant Director - Mental Health Association of Monmouth County
