"I am a 45 year old male with a wife and 3 kids. I just celebrated 20 years of marriage and I could most definitely say that without Dr. Keifer’s help that I would have never been able to experience that. My wife was saying she is going to leave me. It looked hopeless. That’s when we found Dr. Keifer on line. We called and set up an appointment that day. Our first impression of Dr. Keifer was we really like this guy. He was down to earth, smart and easy to talk to. He wasn’t judgmental and we left there with a feeling of hope. I continued to see him for my treatment as I needed mental health care too and so did my wife. I did a lot of damage over the years to my wife and our marriage. So we see him for marriage advice when we need it. I’m happy to say as I said before we just celebrated 20 years married. That would have never happened without his help. I have been a patient of Dr. Keifer for 5 years now and he has helped me with so much. He has helped me stay focused on my goals. He has given me confidence and great ideas to help raise my kids when I am at a loss. He has helped friends of mine get control of their lives as well. He continually helps me with my growth as a man, husband and father. Even though I am older than him, I see him as a mentor or a life coach you might say. I will continue to see him as long as we are able to make it happen. Originally I went to see Dr. Keifer to help just for me, but my family and I got so much more."
"Dr. Keifer uniquely understands the pressures of raising a young family in this modern, technologically-driven age. Unlike other therapists, Dr. Keifer offers concrete solutions to specific behavioral problems. He provides detailed strategies, rather than abstract advice. His strategies have helped us solve specific family issues, one at a time, gradually and permanently. He does all this with expertise and empathy. With patience and sincerity, Dr. Keifer has cultivated a strong connection with our family. Most of all, Dr. Keifer has empowered us to become strong and confident parents who are in control of our family. We are with Dr. Keifer for the long haul. It is a comfort to know that Dr. Keifer will be there to help our family navigate through all stages of our sons’ lives — from elementary to adolescence to adulthood."
"Have you seen a grown man cry? Wisdom, Structure, Hope. Dr. Keifer helped two parents drowning in despair regain control of our family. No fluff or ambiguity. By implementing simple but strategic practices, we witnessed our combative son discover a confidence and capacity we were afraid might never blossom. We wanted something tangible. A plan. Something powerful. A few months later, our lives, and more importantly, our child’s future, is now on firmer ground. If I could show you a before and after picture, you’d agree … the results were nothing short of a miracle."
"Dr. Keifer is the most awesome psychiatrist I have ever met. He treated me while I was living temporarily in Honolulu. He is a rare example of a professional care giver who actually listens to you, and doesn't pretend he is a god. His staff is super efficient, and - this is another anomaly in the healthcare arena - they do what they say they will do. I never had any problems getting in to see him; he even stayed late on a couple of occasions to accommodate my schedule. I highly recommend him if you seek a compassionate, highly-trained professional who will go out of his way to help you reach your goals."
