10/05/14 3 2 1 1 I found her to be not tuned in at all, and she was quite rude. But, what I found troubling was that when she made comments or statements that reflected a lack of insight, she would deny making them. I have since heard similar things from other people about her.  Respond

23/12/13 5 5 5 5 Throughout the trauma and grief surrounding the dissolution of my marriage Dr. Vivino has been an invaluable resource. As a therapist she has provided the perfect mix of compassion, intelligence, and objectivity to help me sort out the issues and challenges I'm facing with clarity and hope.  Respond

18/11/13 5 5 5 5 I could not recommend Barbara MORE to anyone seeking psychotherapy, she is the best. She is very easy going and always willing to work with you regarding scheduling etc. She also truly cares for all aspects of her patients lives. The combination of her in depth experience, expertise, and engaging personality makes her a gem to the field of psychology. I do not believe I could have reached the point in my treatment that I have with her with any other therapist. She is wonderful at listening and as well as guiding your thought train, helping you come to epiphanies about yourself and your thought mannerism that are most likely unreachable without her guidance and skill. My visits with her are always incredibly comfortable on all fronts and I truly enjoy talking to her.
