Though he isn't always punctual, Dr. G is extremely helpful. I'm wondering if these other reviews are even for the same person. The Dr. G I'm seeing, and have gotten to know, is extremely empathetic and unbiased, and genuinely cares about the patient and their wellbeing. He teaches mindfulness based techniques and ensures you have access to services to aid with financial issues (ie/ a drug card to help cover medication costs) and support services (ie/ mindfulness based courses through major Toronto hospitals, reading material so you can learn on your own, support lines, etc.) he has been nothing but caring since I've started seeing him, and without his aid I don't know where I'd be today. I started seeing him as a depressed, anxious, nervous wreck who had gone through abuse and couldn't find my backbone. Today I'm a fairly functioning, independent, strong person who is expanding on the notion that it's okay to say no and take time to care for yourself, and not fulfill every want of other people, be it family or partners. I can't even sum up the progress I've made out my immense gratuitude, but I can tell you the Dr. I know is nothing like the villain described in other reviews

Dr Goldstein was instrumental in emotionally damaging my siblings and I, causing unnecessary turmoil, ruining the remainder of my childhood and allowing someone who was abusing us to continue to have shared custody (and yes he was claiming parental alienation and was also paying the bills). I was 10 I didn't need anyone to try to alienate me from my father he did that on his own by being physically and verbally/emotionally abusive. Dr Goldstein continuously told me I was lying and ill mannered if I got upset that no one would listen that we were being abused and seriously fucked me up. Talk about not being able to trust someone who you think is there to help you. I learned early on no one cared what happened to me. That takes a long time to repair.

Dr. Goldstein was appointed by the court to do a family assessment after my children's father 'invited' two of our children for an unscheduled visit for dinner and they did not return. Father and his family continued to claim it was "the childrens choice" and I was the terrible person in the equation. Neither of us parents had finances to 'entice' a gold digger as many of the other reviews here state. Divorce and putting children in the middle is a sickness of many divorcing parents, even if it's only one of the two parents, a lot of grief and damage is done by that parent and the family of his or her that supports it (and can cost a fortune if this happens). However, it is the children who pay the biggest price. It is their childhood, sense of stability and how they look at themselves and relationships that is at stake. The parents who take that away from the children are the ones who are the problem. Dr. G did his assessment and the court was not 'ready' to hear it. He even called CAS and said the children were being 'emotionally' abused, but the system was not able to help as the children were considered 'safe' as they were getting food and shelter where they were and were not being physically injured. It took over a year and updates from Dr. G. (at additional costs) before the court got to hear my family's/children's case. It is the system that needs help to change and to expedite these cases. It does not surprise me that Dr. G. refers families/children to other Drs./therapists he knows in the PAS community, as it may not be large and did not even exist in T.O. when my family needed it (does it even exist here today?) (it's not collusion or you scratch my back). Even though Dr. G. had the right assessment and eventually at trial the judge made a relatively decent decision for two of my children, however the oldest was too close to 18 to have made a difference. For my oldest it is more than 10 years ( post our divorce) and still is angry at me and the world. There needs to be: 1) quicker movement from the courts for the children to access therapy 2) access (not a financial cost) to the ' appropriate'therapy' for the children to 'deprogram' them locally and not have access during treatment to the alienating parent/family members. 3) If the court is unsure...put the children in the care of a 3rd party while all of this is going on. Better than staying with parent/family members who are turning kids against parents as therapy will never work in that situation. If the children grow up hating one parent, they will likely be unhappy with themselves as they are part of each parent. I would like to yell at parents who do this alienating "STOP -- YOU ARE HURTING YOUR OWN CHILDREN' (that is what Dr. G. did from the witness stand to my children's father...and the father sat there totally unphased with a blank expression on his face. I guess that's the Narcissist & borderline aspect of him. So, for Dr. G. or any therapist in this very sad and disturbing area of expertise, I am not surprised there are people bashing them. It is a relatively thankless job. I and others do thank you for the service you perform in very difficult situations and sad but necessary area of expertise. Best of luck to any parent going through this ... but keep your children in mind first...no matter how much you are hurting...and I know you are...it is the children who become future members of society and they are the ones who are in trouble and paying the biggest price now. Let's keep hope for the future that they will get the help they need (if they were not able to access it as children) and become happy, healthy adults and productive members of society. We must always have hope for the future. Bless and protect all our children.

I believe he is connected to his hand picked lawyers and judges within the Brampton superior court system. My ex collected child porn (teen girls under 18 years of age). Dr. Goldstein considered this normal behavior and decided that our children would do best in a 50-50 joint custody arrangement. My children have only suffered since this Decision was made

Do not trust him. He is motivated by money only. He does not listen to the facts. You can flood him with facts but he will not listen ( although he pretends). My ex just happened to be a Doctor ( with a DOCUMENTED history of substance abuse - including a trip to Homewood ; he NEVER asked for the report). I trusted him and he sided with his fellow doctor regardless of what my Son said and myself. 5 years later my Son is still with me. I would not recommend him

My own family's experience with Sol Goldstein has been very negative. I have to concur with the many ratings that find his help to be not at all helpful. It seems his views are swayed by money; and his involvement in fact causes grief even/especially to the children. Very disappointing. One of his latest determinations missed out on a lot of information/research that would have shed a much different light on a situation.

I've known Dr Golstein for many years now as a patient and friend, and let me tell you, all the reviews below Do Not, properly depict the kind Doctor that I know. If you were to read the reviews below, you may feel his some sort of villain. Let me be perfectly clear, this can be no further from the truth. He has gotten me through many hard times throughout the years, he has given me all his contact phone numbers in case I needed him, even gone so far to give me his contact information when he went on vacation (just as a piece of mind) So when I read the reviews of the previous posters, I surely know, that either they are reviewing a different person than I have grown to know and care about over the years, or we are not hearing the whole story. As I know, he is a kind, generous, highly intelligent person, who is always there for you, when you need him. He doesn't push judgement upon you, merely has genuine discussions of all sides. Lastly, if you feel slighted by your encounter with him, I urge you to take a deep look and thought, whether it was him who you are disappointed with, or the situation. Thank You for reading this, and hopefully I can shed some proper light, on the truth of Doctor Sol J. Goldstein!

Dr Sol Goldstein is a complete pig, he does not listen to what the children have to say in terms of alienation, he just sides with anyone who has the most money. I do not recommend Dr Sol Goldstein to anyone.
