Ratings for Dr. Reuben Schnayer
A good person does not necessarily mean a good physiologist, but I can't even say that he was good, just was sure to answer my emails. I am in complete disagreement with his evaluation. He purposely omitted proven actions of the mom that were direct indications of alienation, I have not seen my Daughter for 2 years, as a result of his involvement in my case. He didn't even look for some even ground. Just defaulted to side with the mother and ignored all her deception and manipulation. I will be posting further details into this for anyone who is interested. Overall my experience with Dr, Reuben was poor, he wouldn't even acknowledge that the actions the mother had taken do not support a healthy environment, and belief system for a child. His evaluation method is way outdated, and has no faith component. Half of his evaluation was from an automated resource, and the half that he actually wrote was completely bias. For example he started his assessment by stating that there had been any contact for a significant amount of time, without ever stating what that amount of time had been. "Opinion without fact shows Bias" and Dr. Reuben is definitely that !
I do not wish to talk in a negative manner toward Dr. Schnayer, however I am deeply concerned with current proceedings and how they may not be resolved because the good doctor has not addressed the underling issues that have been present with the parenting arrangement since my daughters birth.
Dr. Schnayer is very caring, kind, compassionate, honest, forthcoming, helpful, caring, generous and has a sense of humor!! In other words, he is AWESOME!! He has helped me work through various situations and has kept me focused on the goal....living life to its fullest.
My wife and I have been seeing Dr. Schnayer for 10 years or so off and on he is a very soft spoken and understanding I feel he is a wonderful Psychologist with lots of diversified experience . He has defiantly helped us through some very hard times and I can't thank him enough for all his help.
Dr. Schnayer is an amazing Psychologist and more important, he is a kind and caring human being. He is one of the busiest professionals out there yet he always makes time to return calls as quickly as possible. He genuinely cares about his patients. He is a true professional and a truly wonderful human being. I am honoured to have met him.
I saw Dr. Schnayer 8 years ago and I still remember his kind demeanor. I was a teenager at the time and he was so patient and practiced true unconditional positive regard. I moved away a few months later and he referred me to another wonderful psychologist. I am so thankful to him for being a catalyst for my healing journey and that he was able see beyond anger and capture hope.
Dads Beware!! Dr. Schnayer performs assessments in child custody cases. Notwithstanding that he claims to be only concerned with the childrens best interests, in my opinion he definitely favours mothers. He has co-authored a study proving Dads to be equally good and necessary in childrens lives, but without any proof whatsoever of the father being a bad parent, he will arbitrarily suggest that the children will do better in maternal care. If there is no suggestion of the Dad being a bad parent and if the children love their Dad and request shared time with him, then there should be no reason for them not to have 50/50 time or at least 60/40 shared parenting. To suggest what the courts automatically award in uncontested cases after both parents spent thousands and thousands for a personal assessment is ludicrous and a complete disservice to both the children and their father. Dads - if you're contesting custody and want shared responsibility for raising your children, DON'T USE THIS MAN!!
I have seen Dr. Schnayer on and off over the years, as needed. He is very kind, insightful, and genuinely cares. The things he says just makes so much sense. I often think "Wow...why didn't I think of that before?" I have never left the office without feeling better than when I walked in. More importantly, he teaches you how to process and deal with things on your own so you don't need to be dependent on him for all the answers. Isn't that what the ultimate goal is?
