What People Say About Albert Potash, MFT
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was a patient of Al's for quite a few years. I had several issues to work on. A failing marriage and a son that is disabled. The therapy was good. However some times when I went things went smoothly, other times Al was just not there, physically yes but after awhile he seemed disinterested with my case. I had gone through all the difficult times, and at this point in my life I was just trying to stay afloat. Al felt after years of therapy that I should take time away from my therapy with him. I did just that, and when I felt that I needed an appointment with him, he left a message in my phone that we would no longer be doing therapy together. Their was never an explanation as to why we would not work together. After years of depending on him, this was very hurtful. I did call and leave a message on his answering machine asking why he no longer would work with me. He never called me back to give me a answer to my question. This was just not a very ethical way to end my therapy.

I have been soooo grateful to have found Al to work with in therapy! He is really an expert at getting to the root of issues quickly, and I always leave the office feeling uplifted, understood and hopeful. He has such a safe and friendly way about him that all topics are easy to discuss. I was hesitating to go to therapy, but the Effective Therapy Group made it easy to get scheduled and now it is something I look forward to every week!

This experience was a sad one - can't recommend Al Potash as it was a one way business transaction in which he got paid for what seems like, clock counting for dollars. Found him online,the representations he makes on his website and his other sales and marketing pages are impressive - even meeting him, his story is a great one. But at the end of the day he couldn't deliver on his representations. We spent a ton of money and am left empty, saddened and so disappointed....So sad.
