Ratings for Dr. Greg Pickering
Dr Pickering like al psychologists has his own biases and they show through in his session. Even so he works to ensure his client(s) have room to express their needs, feelings or perspecive and work for other's to understand same. He takes his time in sessions and willing to put in overtime for everyones sake....
Dr. Pickering was a key factor in saving our relationship. As a matter of fact, we were 3 months into Divorce proceedings and we thought we'd get Dr. Pickering to help us for mediation. After our initial interview, he recommended we give it one last try. He proved himself after our initial couples therapy session. His method of treatment, from communication to the type of therapy(EFT) conducted was most instrumental on setting both my wife and I on a path to reconciliation. The tools he gave us were most effective and they worked. We had tried other psychologists in the past and Dr. Pickering was in a class of his own. Needless to say, Divorce is off the table and my wife and I are building a refreshed loving relationship! As others reviewers have noted, he is " the real deal ". Thank you Dr. Pickering!
Dr. Pickering was the missing key to my reversal of fortunes. He swayed me from a self destructive angry life towards self knowledge and satisfaction. Best of all, there was no hand waving mumbo jumbo, just matter-of-fact, highly compassionate human interaction. Quite simply the most rewarding relationship I've ever had with a professional.
If you are looking for a mamba pamby psychologist who listens to your woe is me's, dr. Pickering may not be the right guy. My experience is that he is a direct no nonsense psychologist who expects ou to do the work and is Illinois to hold you accountable. I have had great success with him Adam certainly glad that I found him.
I have seen Dr Pickering on an off over the last 10 years. I must say that is has been very helpful me and my daughters and has guided us over rough patches. I found him warm and cary but also brutally honest: a trait of character that is not compatible with everyone. I have grown over the years from seing him and he has given me very good guidance.
Called the office put on hold eventually hung-up. Called back Dr P answered said he would have to call me back. Then called back and answered most of my questions but gave me a ref to a document that did not help much. He then abruptly ended the call saying he had a Patient. If he did not have time to talk or I think if he would have given me some indication that he did not have time to talk or limited time I would not have been so put off.
I tried to leave a comment, but it got erased and I got a message that negative reviews aren't allowed to be left for this doctor unless you were logged in. SO DO NOT BELIEVE ALL RATINGS ON THIS SYSTEM, because I have not left a rating before, and it is not fair that I need to create a profile! I found this doctor rude and arrogant. I really wanted help, but he was playing mind games. I left suicidal, which sucked because this was my first experience with a psychologist, and now i feel like I can not trust any of them. He is a horrible man, and I wish I had never laid eyes on him. DO NOT GO TO SEE HIM!!!
