Ratings for Dr. Susan Golden
Thank you Dr Golden for patiently listening to our concerns regarding our daughter' s behaviour. As parents you empowered us with child centered strategies so we could feel more confident in supporting our child. Our relationship with our child improved and her behaviour no longer dominated our interactions. Your suggestions for her teachers were brilliant and as a result our child has much greater school success. Dr Golden was very prompt for appointments and always brought resources for us to review . She worked hard in assessing our daughter, and wrote a detailed report that really reflected the personality of our child, not only her problems. We are very grateful for her on going work with our family.
Dr. Golden is a wonderful Doctor. We really appreciate her patience, kind heart, sense of humour and knowledge. We feel so grateful to have learned positive parenting strategies which make such a difference. We feel so much more successful as parents and feel our parenting approach is now much more effective. Our daughter really enjoys working with Dr. Golden. She looks forward to her sessions and is much calmer at home. She has learned to understand her ADHD and we all have come to understand her anxiety. We are amazed at the difference it has made to learn to manage her fears through cognitive behavioural therapy. Dr. Golden has also referred us to other much-needed resources for children's speech-language services and occupational therapy so that we could address other problems. Dr. Golden has advocated on our daughter's behalf with the school so that she has a good support plan and the teachers have a much better understanding of strategies needed for her to feel successful in the classroom. Dr. Golden is an extremely hard working psychiatrist who has worked tirelessly with us and with our daughter's school. When we started our seeing mental health professionals, we were very skeptical that things could get better. We are amazed at how far we have come in less than a year and the difference Dr. Golden has made in our lives.
Dr. Golden has been a lifesaver. We have been struggling with our child’s anxiety and behavioural problems for several years. We met Dr. Golden after many trips to psychiatrists, psychologists and various counsellors. Our child instantly connected with Dr. Golden and felt that this was the first doctor or counsellor with whom our child has felt comfortable. She has taught all of us strategies to manage fears and frustration. She has also helped us deal with parenting issues . We were feeling quite burnt out and overwhelmed until we met Dr. Golden. She has also helped us by contacting the school, helping them to understand our child’s anxiety and how to support our child in positive ways. She has helped obtain specific supports needed in the school as well as very helpful resources in the community. Our child previously did not want to go to school and was always upset there. Dr. Golden has been so helpful in her work with our child, us, and the school so that our child is now very comfortable and happy at school.
The child is the client. The parents are important, but the child is the client. My kids love her and she has shown HUGE results with both my son and daughter in a short period. I am so fortunate to have found her. Yes, I know the tragic story of her marriage... but it was NOT HER. Don't take an opportunity away from your kids because of something she didn't do. That's just my opinion. I was apprehensive at first, but wow is she ever good at what she does.
Dr Golden has worked with my daughter for 6 years and counting . She has been supportive to both my daughter and I in many complex issues. My daughters emotional and cognitive health has grown exponentially over the years working with this doctor , although there is still room for growth . I would definitely recommend Dr Golden to anyone needing professional psychiatric help with their child
Dr. Golden is a wonderful doctor who has mad an amazing difference in our son's life. She has guided our family with kindness and patience, teaching us to understand and manage our son's ADHD and OCD. In our case, our son was able to use cognitive behavioural therapy without medication for his anxiety. Dr. Golden was very knowledgeable about these disorders and also able to his get much needed supports at our son's school. We feel so blessed to have met Dr. Golden and to continue to work with her.
