What People Say About Vicki Rubin, LCSW

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.

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.

She has helped me grow and overcome many of my struggles, and I am grateful for our sessions.

Vicki helped us and our family through very tough and challenging problems. My husband and I found her years ago when my daughter was first in rehab for drug addiction. We will always be extremely grateful for her help. Many don't realize that the collateral damage a drug addict inflicts on loved ones creates stresses that no one can be expected to handle without therapy. Vicki's experience and wise and insightful suggestions were invaluable to helping us and our daughter survive, heal, and gain the coping mechanisms to survive this ordeal. Vicki was instrumental in giving us tools to preserve and actually strengthen our marriage, and to help us work with our other three children to protect and mitigate the adverse effects of their sibling's roller coaster ride that is mental illness and substance abuse. Do not hesitate to to work with her. Be ready to commit to treatment long term. These things don't get fixed in a single session. She is expert!

I highly recommend Vicki to any couple considering a therapist, or just talking to an objective third party. My husband and I were struggling in our relationship after having a baby and a few other stressful life events- Vicki was critical to us being able to communicate with each other and appreciate our differences in coping with stress.

Vicki was very patient and understanding. I felt that she really cared about my situation, contrary to the last review. She never wants you to feel pressured to speak if you're not ready. At times, I needed some time to gather my thoughts and she was very understanding.I have been seeing her for a while now and she has made a big difference in my life and in my relationships. I highly recommend her!

Not so great. I was getting over a relationship and I needed help moving on. I got the feeling that Dr Rubin could care less. I saw her for about 8 sessions. I ultimately needed to go elsewhere for help. I got stuck and didn't want to talk one day and said "I don't think I have anything else to say." She told me I was free to leave if I wanted. I left and never went back. Don't think she was particularly effective caring. Go elsewhere I did.

I recently began meeting with Vicki and already see improvements in my mental wellbeing. She has helped me to realize the effects of past traumas and how they continue to affect my decisions. More importantly, she provides me with the tools necessary to break free from destructive patterns of thinking and form healthier habits. She is very encouraging and helps you to build the confidence to become your own advocate. She is an attentive listener. She takes the time to ensure that concepts are understood so that they can be made applicable in everyday situations. I highly recommend Vicki to anyone experiencing a difficult time or who wishes to work through unresolved emotions.

Vicki immediately was able to help make recommendations to help me through a tough time in a relationship and help me realize my anxiety and depression. She is great at helping you advocate for yourself and realize other people's problems are not on you. She also helps you connect the dots in patterns in your behavior and figure out the root of where some of this behavior comes from.

Vicki has great attention to detail- she can always relate back to what I mentioned earlier. Her office is at a great location in midtown Manhattan, easy to get to from work. I like that she is clearly professional but adds a personal touch to our conversations, and stays engaged.

Vicki helped me through a really difficult point in my life. Her assessment was spot on and aligned with my doctor's diagnosis. She has been assisting me in not only coping with anxiety and depression, but also becoming more accepting of my feelings and realizing that everyone struggles with issues. I have gained strength, independence and self-esteem through her practice. I am doing much better and would highly recommend her!

I was at a low point in my life when I found Vicki through an internet search. I was alone, in the midst of a marriage separation, depressed, and self-medicating to cope with the stress when I joined her therapy group. With support from others in the group and Vicki's guidance, I now have hope and a brighter perspective on my life. She never told me what to think, but allowed me to reach my own decisions by listening and asking the right questions at the right times throughout the process. I was able to witness her influence on the positive growth of others in the group as well. I had never done group therapy prior to seeing Vicki, but came based on online reviews. I am glad I did!

The first time I met Vicki I was overwhelmed with emotions I had never felt. She is the first therapist I've ever seen and she helped me realize that I was dealing with anxiety and that I was going to be okay. I remember feeling overwhelmed and afraid to see a therapist and I can not express how much she has improved my life and mindset for the better. I've gained confidence and better control over my anxiety. She has shown me that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I never knew therapy could be so beneficial and comforting. Vicki is always available when I need her and she will even accommodate me with a phone conversation if we can't meet in person. I'm looking forward to continuing to grow with Vicki because I can tell she cares about my growth.

I, throughout my life, was reluctant to talk to a therapist. It took an extremely low point in my life, for me to decide it was time to start. Working with Vicki Rubin has made me wish I began much earlier in life. In a comfortable atmosphere, I am happy to open up to her and learn other perspectives from my own. More importantly, using those notions in future situations. Extremely professional and easy to talk with. Take it from someone who WAS against the idea of therapy.

I have only high praise for Dr. Vicki Rubin. After I separated from my wife I joined Vicki's support group, and with her guidance, and the love and support from the group, I was able to cope with a very difficult situation. Whether you need individual counseling, or a support group, I would highly recommend seeking the support and guidance of Dr. Vicki Rubin.
