Ratings for Dr. Carolyn P. Roche
My experience of Dr. Pender-Roche (and the number of well respected lawyers, judges and forensic psychologists I know of) is that she pays close attention to detail—like reading thorough all documentation presented to her, asks questions, gathers information comes to conclusions based on accepted psychological constructs, and gets more information when she needs it. It is the very definition of professional competence, which, in my experience can be painfully lacking in this profession, especially when it comes to family dynamics. I'd like to point out that anyone who does evaluations and recommendations for contentious situations is likely going to have an unhappy party with any case they are involved in. If the parties involved could have worked out their differences they would not not be involved with the types of skill set therapists like Dr. Pender-Roche possess. I've also noticed the negative responses here are very emotionally driven— in my opinion meant to cause upset and distress in the reader rather than help them make an informed decision. Throwing out accusations with little more than opinions about they think happened does not do anything constructive. If you look at the positive responses, they are much calmer in tone, an include specific examples of what she DOES or DID, not commentary about who they think she is or guesswork as to what she was thinking. I would highly recommend her.
Carolyn Pender Roche's business depends on abuse reports. Once a child abuse report is made to CPS, she jumps in and takes over the case through attorneys from Smith Debnam Law Firm like Kristin Ruth, Alicia Jurney, Rose Stout, Lynn McNally and others. She also has a team of insider psychologists to victimize your child. Your child will be evaluated for absolutely no reason, and will be denied protection from you as a parent. When you disagree with her, she will file an Affidavit in the court against you because Carolyn Pender Roche only cares about your money and her job is to protect the party that pays her more money. To stay in business she needs to have you keep coming back for her services to extort weekly fees. Protect your children and steer clear from Carolyn Pender Roche, Tinney Quionna Railey, Linda Silber, Alicia Jurney, Annette Baker, Rose Stout, Lynn McNally, Kristin Ruth. After you file a case in the court, your child becomes their property, and Kristin Ruth will do everything in her power to profit from your divorce and custody related issues. Once Kristin Ruth and Carolyn Pender Roche are caught doing unethical conduct, they remove themselves from the case immediately. Your case will never become permanent under these psychologists and attorneys so that you can't appeal it. That's how Kristin Ruth refers the case to Carolyn Pender Roche "keep the case out of the court system - high conflict case- profitable case" and so on. You can expect to remain in the Wake County Courts for until your child is not a minor anymore. No child is safe with Carolyn Pender Roche. I write this from my experience in hopes that I can help save a child and your entire family from Carolyn Pender Roche, Kristin Ruth and their network. If you can avoid, stay away from these people and don't fund their criminal acts as they don't deserve your money and your children need honest, ethical, kind, sincere, and genuine therapists. Not one lady from this group would qualify to be a fit psychologist. Carolyn Pender Roche makes false allegations of coaching, parental alienation, against one parent and victimizes the protective parent. She is not a fit psychologist to work with your child. Carolyn Pender Roche is who delivers sexually abused children to alleged pedophiles. She takes on the cases without any experience and experiments with your children without any qualifications. Beware of Carolyn Pender Roche. Do not trust this lady with your child. She COACHES your children not to share about abuse with anyone and threatens the parents that they will lose their child to the system if they make another report to CPS. She and her associates make up stories, have no credibility, and are not true professionals. Carolyn Pender Roche never prepares a report for the judge. She acts as if she herself is a judge and takes all actions pertaining to your child without court orders. Watch out for Roche. She is a danger to any child that walks in her office. Please protect your children and keep them away from her. If your child has been abused, and you've got her on your case, she will pretend to listen to you. She will even ask you about your child and your concerns. Later, you will find out that she uses the information that she gather from you during intake notes to create false and fabricated stories and nothing but lies end up in her affidavits that she submits to the court as if they are true. Once they are signed by the judge, she labels you that you are "coaching" your child and that the child NEVER reported abuse to her. Interestingly her intake notes contradicts her own statements in her sworn affidavits. She shouldn't be practicing psychology and should be reported to the bar immediately. Do not trust this lady no matter what. She is superficial, dishonest, greedy and will most certainly ruin your child's life forever if you use her services. She will fabricate reports with Tinney Quionna Railey, Linda Silber, Annette Baker etc. Each one works in collusion with the other to profit out of the parents who are referred by their attorneys to her. The worst thing that could ever happen to your child is a therapy session with CAROLYN PENDER ROCHE and then the nightmare of never ending misery for your child begins. STAY AWAY FROM HER AND KEEP YOUR CHILD, YOURSELF AND THE REST OF YOUR FAMILY SAFE! I sincerely hope that you are able to find a therapist who genuinely would be there to help your child and not like Carolyn Pender Roche who is there only to build her bank balance. I hope this feedback is helpful to you in making your decisions about signing her up as your child's therapist. Don't waste your money, time, effort in seeking advice from Carolyn Pender Roche as she is not FIT to do so. My sister's child has suffered years of sexual abuse by her father because of Carolyn Pender Roche. Do not trust your child with her. I rate her zero star but I am compelled to choose a one unfortunately.
Dr. Pender Roche has been an angel for our family. We started seeing her 8 months ago, and she has been the MOST important part of helping my kids handle the sudden divorce and contentious custody issues. She is so wise and wonderful with kids. My kids trust her and open up to her about the things that worry or sadden them. She has an incredible ability to see straight through a facade and get right down to the heart of the matter and the issue at hand. She has given me advice on how to handle tough topics and hard questions, and she has helped me learn how to manage my kids' difficult behavior. I can't recommended her highly enough. We drive about 30 minutes to see her, but she is worth every minute. She is straight talker, and some things she has to say may be hard to hear, but she absolutely has your kids' best interests at the forefront in everything. I value her so much, and I'm so thankful we found her to help our family.
WATCH OUT FOR DR, CAROLYN PENDER ROCHE. SHE IS DANGEROUS FOR CHILDREN. Dr. Carolyn Pender Roche has built an empire in Judge Denning's Courtroom. SUPPOSEDLY, JUDGE DENNING LIKES HER VERY MUCH. She works with attorney KRISTIN RUTH and JUDGE DENNING to deliver children that are sexually abused to their abusers. She will create fake, fraudulent, and fabricated information to steal children from very good, and very caring parents. Dr. Carolyn Pender Roche has worked hard to conceal sexual abuse of a minor child only five years old, and worked with several attorneys including KRISTIN RUTH, JUDGE DENNING, and with the CPS worker MARCIA KNIGHT to allow a sexual predator to have access to the minor child. In her intake notes of March 18, 2013, Dr. Carolyn Pender Roche wrote the minor child had disclosed to Dr. Carolyn Pender Roche that the father had touched her inappropriately. DR. CAROLYN PENDER ROCHE never reported sexual abuse of the minor child to CPS. Months later, she lied that the child had never made remarks to her about being sexually abused. This lady is not qualified to work with sexually abused children or for custody evaluations. Yet, she experimented on my niece, an innocent child who has been subjected to ongoing sexual abuse due to deliberate failure of the family court system to protect a child, and due to a profitable industry run by people like Dr. CAROLYN PENDER ROCHE. After being removed from providing services to the minor child for over four months, Dr, Carolyn Pender Roche created a 50/50 schedule without having any contact with the child for over four months and sent the minor child to live with her dad. That child has suffered ongoing sexual abuse for the last four and half years. DR. CAROLYN PENDER ROCHE calls the child a "liar". It is she who is lying and it is she who needs to have her mental evaluation done. She claims to be working in this field as an expert of children, but she is far from being that person. If you see her name ever, run in the opposite direction. This entire industry of psychologists has become a threat to families. There is no justice in family courts. As long as people like DR. CAROLYN PENDER are in charge of our children, innocent children will continue to be abused by sexual predators. It is time that we shut down the family court of JUDGE DENNING and bring in staff that truly care about the children, and not about money. There is too much at stake and Dr. Carolyn Pender Roche's license needs to be revoked immediately. Please do not take your child to this lady. She steals money from your account without authorization. She is a thug, and needs to be prosecuted for her crimes against children and Wake County Families. Stop child abuse now. It begins with removing CAROLYN PENDER ROCHE, KRISTIN RUTH,/ATTORNEY, JUDGE DENNING, LINDA SILBER (RETIRED), TINNEY QIONNA, PAMELA REESE/judicial secretary, ANNETTE BAKER/psychologist, and MARCIA KNIGHT CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES SOCIAL WORKER. MARCIA KNIGHT OF CPS SHARED CONFIDENTIAL INFOMRATION WITH ATTORNEY KRISTIN RUTH of anonymous reports of child sexual abuse reported by the child's therapist. KRISTIN RUTH passed on that information to DR. CAROLYN PENDER ROCHE and to the father, the child's sexual abuser. MARCIA KNIGHT WAS IN VIOLATION BY STATE LAWS BY SHARING AN ANONYMOUS REPORT OF SEXUAL ABUSE made by the child's play therapist, a confidential document that cannot be shared with anyone. MARCIA KNIGHT, DR. CAROLYN PENDER ROCHE, DR. LINDA SILBER, DR TINNEY QUIONNA, KRISTIN RUTH OF SMITH DEBNAM LAW FIRM compromised the safety of the minor child and forced the child to live with her sexual abuser for the last four years. MARCIA KNIGHT unsubstantiated the abuse report after sharing it with KRISTIN RUTH, DR. CAROLYN PENDER ROCHE, and with the child's father. All medical reports of the child's sexual abuse were ignored by DR. CAROLYN PENDER ROACH. The said child was physically injured for having reported sexual abuse to her play therapist. Each time the child made a sexual abuse report, she was physically punished by DR, CAROLYN PENDER ROCHE, and by her father. By the way, all the named psyhologists work in the same office.
Dr. Pender Roche is one of the most unprofessional, two faced therapist I have ever encountered. She will indicate she understands everything when you are in your face but if she testifies in court, you will lose custody of your kids. Beware, do not trust her or her fake " I care about the mental health of the children " act. She will be a puppet to the attorney, judge, and parenting coordinator. Unfortunately since the court asked her to be my child's therapist, we are stuck until said child turns 18....
Most arrogant, unprofessional and a flat out only worried about the money. She will have your child attend outside sessions, i.e. social skills even though the child had no social issues , for even more control of the child, you and of course your money. Don't ever trust her to testify in court . ...you would be stunned at her ability to lie about your child and the child's relationship with each parent.....she will have you convinced she understands and is listening to your child, but put her on the stand to testify , you are likely going to loose your part of the custody arrangement.....if anyone recommends her to you...RUN the opposite direction.
I have never seen such a self-important, condescending and, frankly, unqualified "psychologist." Believe me, she will say whatever she is paid to say, and cut all corners she needs to in order to reach her blatantly un"expert" opinions. She doesn't care about her purported "patients"...just the almighty buck. And she is NOT with Silber anymore, although she sure likse to parade that past association. Parents--STAY AWAY. Lawyers who want a witness to parrot what they need to make their case--hire her.
Would NEVER recommend her counsel to anyone. Unprofessional, Condescending and Patronizing. Does not seek evidence and ignores it when it is presented to her. Very arrogant about her authority. Creates a divisive relationship between parent and child by encouraging children to have a secretive relationship with her in which the parent is not allowed to participate.
We have been seeing Dr. Roche for several years for our child. She has been extremely helpful as a member of a multi-disciplinary team working with our child. Her insights and willingness to work with neurologists, developmental pediatricians, OTs, Speech Therapists, teachers, and others has been absolutely critical to our child's recovery and progress. We could not have expected better results or a better psychologist. We highly recommend her and cannot say enough positive thins about all that she has done to help us through a very difficult process with a very challenging child and the issues this child was burdened with at a young age.
