The absolute worst experience I have ever had.....She never listened to a word I said and was on her damn phone the whole time. What a waste of money....She hates men and makes that very clear....Save your money....see a bartender instead
The Best If You Like No Nonsense – If you want to waste your time with psychobabble and "feel good" advice, don't bother seeing Dr. Bashkoff. If you want practical advice and are ready to do some work and make some decisions to improve your life, this is who you want to see. Think your relationship isn't working? Be ready to fix it, or be ready to break up. There is no languishing is a pity-party with Dr. Bashkoff. She cuts right to the chase, and does not waste your time or your money. The best.
yuck – She is a waste of time. She listens sometimes, but for the most part, it is obvious that she is thinking about other things. All I can say is that this woman says and does things that are not theraputic and inappropriate. Not good. It's like going to the hardware store for oranges- you're just not going to find it there. But you will see a "fashion show" if you go a couple of times.
Bad news – I saw Dr. Bashkoff and could not believe how she was not really listening to me. She minimized what I told her, looked off into the distance, was really concerned with her appearance even during a session, doodled and did her make-up! What therapist does that? She seemed smart, but lacked insight- she took things in a very superficial way. Honestly, she seems burnt out and has a hostile and angry streak and can be insensitively confrontational (and has been so off the mark about her conclusions). Its as if she would rather just have a nice chat than be your therapist. So, if you are looking to pay a pal for a 40 minute chat, go ahead. If you need a therapist, look elsewhere- you have been warned!
excellent. Helpful. Narrows right in. Great advice Kind – Great psychologist. Listens. Goes the extra mile. Returns all phone calls.
Thank You – I originally went to see Dr. Bashkoff because it was mandatory. I now see her regularly because she is the kindest, most intelligent and sincere doctor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting with. I owe so much to her and credit so much of my mental health to her work.
Helpful! – I was going through a rough time in my life and Dr. Bashkoff was instrumental in helping me sort things out. She was professional and made me feel comfortable. I looked forward to our sessions and recommend her to anyone who was in my previous situation.
I hate this woman. – This woman sucks. I had to go with this woman for a year. She was mean and rude. She tried to convince me to visit my clinically insane abusive mother. I was 15 when I saw her and she listened to nothing I said nor did she take into consideration anything i wanted when talking to the judge in my parents divorce. I often had to tel her things over and over because she obviously wasn't smart enough to take notes the first few times I talked to her. She is oblivious to things that are very clear. She is two faced and will tell you what you want to hear when with her then go and do whatever she wants. I DO NOT RECOMMEND YOU TAKE YOUR DOG TO THIS WOMAN LET ALONE YOURSELF OR YOUR LOVED ONES. She made my life hell and was everything you don't want in a therapist. Her Phd is a joke.
Take notes! Don't Doodle! – I went to Jacqueline for just under a year. At fist she seemed pretty good. I didn't like that she doodled during my sessions. After a couple of months I noticed that I had to tell her things over and over. She offered little to no advice. The sessions were not connected at all and did not seem to have any progression. I felt like she was just going through the motions. She was also late often. So I stopped going to see her.
One has to wonder – many moons ago I was associated with Dr Bashkoff who was not only instrumental in making a transition with my son who my ex up and left with BUT she had to re-program him into know that im his real dad and step dad was not. Although one can only do so much and when the ex wife is not only unwilling but can continue the barrage of anti DAD brainwashing 24/7 its hard to deprogram a child with only one hour each week.
As for the NOT PROFESSIONAL post? one also has to wonder HOW can someone visit the Dr. Twice and come up with only ONE description of discontent? did she do her nails TWICE or did she do her nails ONCE then open mail on the second visit? ALSO before anyone reads these POSTS keep in mind that they may be written by patients who are there for other social disorders and I have known many who say that their doctors are horrible who also think the waiter at the restaurant, neighbors, friends and relatives are as well. SO dont judge a review by a patient.
Does this apply to ME TO being im posting? NO I was not a patient, my 5 year old son was who was lead to the dark side by my EX better (bitter) half.
That's all I have to say about that.
