Integrity – Lori is an excellent therapist. It is very disturbing that people who have a desire to punish or ruin a persons career can just write whatever they want on a site like this. As a therapist who has a thriving and successful psychotherapy practice, it is clear that Lori has the skills, knowledge and character to continue to help many people. Those that know her have absolute faith in her ability to be there for them in ways that are profoundly important for positive personal change and growth. This therapist is unique and highly qualified and is an exceptional human being.
Saved my Life – If anyone wants a GOOD therapist who will let you know what to do with your life, Lori is the one to go to. I have been to therapists who do not have the guts, grit and patience to help you work through your issues. She helped me see and face things I did not know about my life that if it were not for her, I would be totally lost today. I will be eternally grateful to her for guiding me in being a better person and the best parent I can be to my son. It did not happen overnight; it took time and effort; but it was well worth it. I am a better person because of her, and because of the things she taught me, I have become more accepting and forgiving of others. She taught be to like and love myself and made me realize that the problems I had in my life were not my fault. She can be tough, but she is smart and a loving person and I am stronger because of her.
Therapy that delivers results! – Dr. Sax helped me break through my denial and set me on the road to recovery. She is a good listener and compassionate but is tough when my denial gets in the way of my personal progress. She takes many different kinds of insurance and her fee pratices and paperwork weren't any different from the other therapists that I saw in the past. Dr. Sax is very good at treating addictions (my issue) and is very good with spirituality. I'm sure she's just as good with other stuff as well.
Great Listener, Great Help – I have found Ms. Sax to be a great listener. She is patient, compassionate, and nonjudgemental.
She is also assertive. The same strength of character which helps assure she will get paid (which to me only seems fair), helps clients get to the root of their issues. She asks the tough questions. If you are looking for real help and for someone who is willing to provide more than just a pity session, I strongly recommend Lori Sax.
not the right therapist for everyone – I agree with the last two reviews. Lori did the same with me in spending my appointment time on paperwork and fee collection. She was not the right therapist for me but may be better for others whom she has experience in treating.
Distant, cold, and rude; maybe the worst therapist I have ever seen. – Lori Sax should not be a therapist. She is not personable or friendly and definitely not someone with whom you will feel safe. Maybe she is good at testing which is a more distant, rigid enterprise; she has the attributes for this sort of endeavor. She took 1/4 of the time of the session for completing paperwork; she was busily taking care of her own business while I was filling out forms that could have been given to me ahead of time and filled out before coming to the session. Then she made a point of telling me that SHE would be the one to decide whether I would come to more sessions. Really, I can't imagine why anyone would EVER want to see her beyond the first session! She kept saying that she felt for me, but the body language and tone of her was anything but understanding and empathetic. Stay away unless you want to hate therapy from now on! I also am giving information on her style of treatment only and not slighting her as a person in a defamitory, slanderous or libelous manner.
No compassion, not equipped to handle crisis. – Do not seek help from this therapist if you are in crisis, she will show no concern for you and only cause more aggravation to a sensitive situation.
My family came to her for help when in desperate need and she was not resourceful, had no warmth or empathy, no concern for our well being just her co-payments. Maybe she wasn't equipped to handle our needs or just wasn't that right fit. At Any rate she was not helpful for us.
(This is only my opinion as it relates to my experience and is not intended to be defamatory but to provide information.)
Specialist in getting you through it all! – I highly recommend using the services of Lori Sax-Mendez. Lori is a friendly lady with a cute smile and spunky attitude but don't be fooled, she is tough! You will not be pulling anything over on her ~ she's one smart cookie! But if you are serious about WORKING through something (or a lot of things), she is the gal to call. I saw her for a few years and she helped me get through what were current challenges, along with tackling the bigger issues of the past. I truly believe that I am the person I am (much healthier in spirit) today because of my time spent with Lori. I am forever grateful for her assistance and think upon the things I learned from her often.
