I've been seeing Vicki for a few months now, and she's been incredibly helpful and direct in my journey to improve some key ideas and maintaining appropriate distance in former relationships (post-divorce, shared custody of child), while navigating maintaining communication and growth in a new relationship. We've been able to connect the past and present to guide choices, decisions and interactions. I am happy to continue working with Vicki.

Vicki was wonderful. She called me back the same day I reached out to her for an appointment. She was able to assess my issue quickly and help me. She was flexible working with my schedule and availability. She has many years of experience, and treated me with kindness. I saw her professional attitude and caring personality.

I have been going to Dr. Rubin since 2017; when I first started therapy, I was in a dark place and couldn't see a way out or a better way to be. My life has taken a complete turn since then, and through the work that Dr. Rubin did with me, I was able to shift my mindset and life. I battled anxiety and depression nearly my whole life, but in the last three years, with the help of Dr. Rubin, I have been able to not only deal with my anxiety and depression but thrive and learn for the first in my life that I can change my own life and circumstances and gain self-confidence.

Vicki is a very straightforward woman who wants her patients to feel confident. I was referred to Vicki through the OnTrak program, and am very grateful for it. Vicki listens; she's identified issues that I've sometimes completely missed, and she's helped me make the first steps to moving past them. I truly enjoy working with her.

Vicki Rubin is an amazing therapist. She has been able to help me gain more awareness about my behaviors and how they contribute to my shortcomings. By working with Vicki - I have been able to use this knowledge and become a better version of myself. I like the new me and without having had my sessions with Vicki - I wouldn’t be experiencing my current state of happiness. Vicki is unbiased, caring and doesn’t hold back - she’s a great therapist who knows her stuff and anyone looking for a therapist will definitely be happy with the service she is able to provide.

Vicki has been really effective at helping me to understand my anxiety, myself and even those around me with mental help issues. She is very honest, which I find to be refreshing, and her tell-it-like-it-is demeanor has helped me to confront things about myself that I was afraid to face.

I've been seeing Vicki for about a year. Vicki is wise, knowledgeable, neutral and observant. She's pointed out patterns and behaviors in myself and my family that have helped me heal and move forward. I was raised in a dysfunctional home with alcohol and mental abuse. I feel optimistic and at the healthiest point in my life. Vicki has been a vital part of my growth and healing, she's helped me face and live with my trauma without shame. I've seen other therapists but there's no comparison I'm grateful and I highly recommend Vicki.

When trying to connect with Vicki during the initial consultation, she was super rushed and kept referring me to her website. I know there's a website but I want you to explain to me how your experience with relationships is a fit for me. Never again.

I have been seeing Vicki for about a year. She has helped me work through my anxiety as well as identify patterns that were detrimental to me having successful relationships. Through weekly sessions, I've learned to adjust my focus from external validation to how I am feeling. She has a very balanced nature and is great at putting situations into perspective - would recommend.

Dr. Rubin is a great listener, and she really helped me to understand my underlying issues and concerns. I have been attending sessions with Dr Rubin for 4 months, and am Maloney breakthroughs. My wife tells me she can see real improvements in my communication over the last four months. This therapy has been key to that.

I have been seeing Vicki for a few years now and it has been a wonderful and enlightening experience. She counseled me during a difficult divorce and its effect on me as well as how to handle the the effect it had on my children. I have also suffered from anxiety and, with her encouragement, sought psychiatric help for that. The thing I enjoy most about Vicki is that she challenges me to face my issues head on and make changes rather than just how to face the sames things over and over again. It's more about being proactive rather than just reactive.

My husband called Vicki to seek therapy. She stated on the phone, “what you’re describing to me... it sounds like you are a loser”. My husband abruptly ended the conversation. My question: What kind of therapist are you? Why are you a therapist? Seriously! Honestly, you should have your license revoked. Those who would like to seek advice from this Vicki person: I do not recommend her, whatsoever!

I've been seeing Vicki weekly for five months and have had a very positive experience. She has helped me better understand myself by drawing powerful connections between my past experiences and current patterns of behavior. She helps me question the "why" behind my feelings and actions, always pushing me with practical advice for tackling my problems. Her guidance is helping me through a difficult breakup and has helped me make major strides in treating my anxiety and depression. Highly recommend!

Vicki is so good at what she does. She is truly neutral, listens, does not rush you, has the ability to see a situation for what it is, even when you are bias, and call it like it is. She is there to help you not coddle you. She gives such clear and simple advice while also allowing you to figure a lot of things out on your own and as you grow. She's got both tough love and compassion which it vital to grow and heal. She's helped me a lot to learn, heal, see clearer and grow. Sometimes it can be hard to talk to someone but Vicki never pushes you and allows you to do it in your own time. She helps to take out a lot of anger and emotion that can be blocking you from living your best and happiest life.
