Dr. Kahane has been a Godsend! My daughter has always been a sensitive kid but developed separation issues and severe anxiety a few years after my divorce. My ex and I found Dr. Kahane online and called for an appointment. She heard about our story and knew she would be able to help so she added on my daughter ASAP due to the acuteness of her symptoms- we were desperate. Our daughter went from suffering "bellyaches" almost daily, tears from the moment she woke up on school days, panic attacks any time she she would leave us and excessive crying before soccer practice to being her fun-loving self again. Dr. Kahane has helped her understand her emotions and learn how to express herself over the course of 9 months. My daughter has gone from seeing Dr. Kahane weekly to now seeing her every other week. My daughter thoroughly enjoys her sessions and looks forward to them as part of her routine. I know the skills she has been learning helped her through these acute issues, but will also help her through the rest of her development and life. I constantly find myself saying "I could have used my own Dr. Kahane in my life growing up." My ex and I also meet with Dr. Kahane for private parenting sessions via zoom which have been excellent. I cannot thank Dr. Kahane enough for everything she has done for us. I look forward to eventually joining POWERS parenting in the future when my schedule permits.

Enter Dr. Kahane and things quickly changed. Dr. Kahane’s skill and expertise (we call it magic) really worked wonders and within a year, my daughter's tantrums were a thing of the past. She was tantrum free, controlled, and ready to go back.
No words can describe our gratitude and wonder to Dr. Kahane. We feel so fortunate that she was in our area and able to help our daughter turn her school career around, improve her self confidence and set her on a great path for life.
Ps. My daughter is now freshman in high school and excelling. We have now brought our second daughter to her and recommend her highly. True she’s not cheap, but worth every penny in my opinion.
Thank you Dr. Kahane!!

POWERS parenting course has truly changed the way we parent our children. Learning to deal and cope at home using our “powers toolbox” has started to transform our home from chaotic to smooth and functional. Dr. Kahane is kind, caring, approachable and provides the most excellent advice. She makes us feel heard and understood. She helps us and the group resolve various parenting issues or concerns for children of all ages. I wish I had known about the course earlier and would recommend it to any parent looking to learn and improve parenting techniques. You will gain an understanding and insight into a better way to parent and learn to redirect your definition of success with your children. The course is logical, concise and genuinely enjoyable. It’s definitely five stars from our family!

We always used to joke that they should really give you an instruction manual when you have kids. When our son was diagnosed with autism, this became even more true. We felt lost for many years trying to find the proper support for him. A place to grow, learn, and become the best version of himself. When a friend recommended The Kahane Center, we never thought it would also become a place for us to grow, learn, and become the best version of ourselves as well. We began taking the Powers parenting class and the transformation in our household was almost immediate. A simple change of words and a not so simple change in attitude started to take place. We are still growing and learning. We remind each other daily to focus on our process as parents not the product of getting our kids to do x, y, and z. Taking the time to build and practice our skills with Dr. Kahane has really transformed they way we parent and the way we interact with each other. I wish everyone could experience the knowledge and support we've gained from joining!

Dear Dr. Kahane,
Thank you so much for an incredible morning of learning. The teachers were actively engaged in your entire presentation and could not get enough. They were thirsting for more information and insight into how they can better support the children in their classrooms. I look forward to continuing to work together in helping children in our community succeed.
When I first met Dr. Kahane, I didn’t know how I really felt about going to see her. Over time, I got used to the fact I was going there for a reason. Together with my mother, Dr. Kahane helped me realize that I had nothing to be afraid of. I began opening up to Dr. Kahane about things that were troubling me and she taught me ways that I could overcome those situations. Eventually, I came to trust Dr. Kahane and since then, my life has never been the same.
When I first started coming to Dr. Kahane, I felt like I didn’t know how to behave around people or have normal conversations. I was afraid of change. But the techniques Dr. Kahane has provided me with have helped me become more confident and way less socially awkward. I don’t know what I would have done without her. Now, in my daily life, I use these techniques to my advantage and life is so much easier for me.

Transformative. I went here for my son and I came out learning so much myself that solved sibling rivalry, stress, and parenting questions. I found the cost was worth it because we made more progress (both my son and I) in one appointment here than with multiple appointments with other professionals we had seen in the past.
Dear Dr. Kahane and TKC Team
I just want to thank you so much for all your work with my 10 year old grandson.
After a recent group and individual session, I took him for a walk and asked him, “Do you like your therapists?” He replied. “Yes, I do. They are sooooooo kind and they really care about me. They are passionate about what they do and they are very good listeners. If I knew someone with a kid like me, I would highly recommend them.”
This heartfelt, introspective, adorable and sincere response from a child is indicative of the beautiful relationship you have both created with him.
Thank you so much!
It was almost 4 years ago that we first brought our son, Michael, to The Kahane Center, and it has been nearly 3 years since he began his weekly dyad with you. His growth over the past four years has been remarkable—because of you, he can now engage in conversation, play with his peers, and express his feelings with words. Thank you, Dr. Kahane, for teaching, helping, and guiding him. Thank you, also, for all the times that you have continued to encourage and support us as parents.
Thank you for being a center that is truly dedicated to my whole family!!! The Kahane Center has helped us each through individual crises as well as our family matters. I’ve always felt supported while receiving excellent and knowledgeable advice–all of my needs met under one roof!!! Thank you for making a difference in my life and for making my family the best it can be here in Bergen county!
