Ratings for Dr. Barbara Vivino
It's too bad this site is anonymous. Someone is repeating an attach on Dr. Vivino. Probably an unhappy person. Barbara is an absolutely wonderful therapist. She really listens, really cares and is super insightful. She is really good at guiding me along and offers a lot of guidance to clarify issues. I started with her when I was going through a divorce. Then I got stage 3 cancer. It was such a tough time for me. Barbara really helped carry me through. Now I am starting a new relationship and she is really helping me get off on the right foot. I learn so much from her. I cannot recommend her more!
As a long time patient of Dr. Vivino, it is disheartening to read these somewhat slanderous reviews that seem to be coming from one single source. She has never been anything but insightful and kind, always encouraging my progress. The only reason any one would have a problem with this is if they themselves did not want to put any work into the sessions. She is a fantastic psychologist. She has worked with my for years and I am always grateful for her patience.
Dr. Vivino can at times be warm and compassionate and perhaps helpful if you are a fast learner, have a specific issue and you are willing to completely follow all of her advice. However, she has a low frustration threshold and if things aren't proceeding quickly enough she can lose her temper and "confront" you in a very insensitive and frankly immature manner. In the next session she will have "forgotten" what she said. If you do see her, I would suggest recording the sessions.
Dr. Vivino was recommended to me and I found her to be extremely knowledgeable and compassionate to my situation which had been spiraling out of control. She has helped me enormously in my fight to regain my mental well-being. I wold highly recommend her to anyone.
