I'm sure Dr. Goldberg thought he was just trying to be relatable, but he ONLY talked about himself. I could barelyget a word in edgewise. I left feeling like I knew all about his past and his family, etc., but he didn't know at all why I was even there. What a total waste of time.

I'm not sure what kind of patient would "connect" with adr Goldberg but it certainly wasn't me. It started ok, butwithin 5 minutes he was making facetious remarks about my examples (I said I feel guilty when I don't get house work done on time, and he said oh I never feel that way, my wife does all the work) then he continued talking about how his wife was raised to do dishes so he never thought about it. He didn't listen, his therapy session was interjected with policy about cancellation where in between asking about whether or not I was abused as child he told me, a newly pregnant woman (just 3-weeks) that should I miscarry i can cancel my appointment without incurring an expensive charge. He also demanded I comply with his published Model on cognition which frankly was too restrictive for any person I know working through therapy. Near the end of the session, which I cut short by reminding him that is insensitive to suggest that a newly pregnant woman (with anxiety) could cancel when she miscarries. This guy reminds me of used car salesman pushing psychotherputical products. I would not recommend anyone see him. I could see his value if you needed to commit some sort of insurance fraud and needed an unscrupulous person with PsyD by his name, but if you need real help, be advised, he's dangerous. He did apologize for being "at 80%" and said he was sorry for being insensitive and said he was tired and I need a really "on top of their game" therapist because I pay attention or something like that. This guy is not a professional.

About Noel Goldberg

Thank you for reviewing Dr. Goldberg & Associates. I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist and been practicing in VA since 2002. Our practice provides psychotherapy & assessment to a wide variety to patients and areas. These include educational and psychological testing services to adults and adolescents, to determining if an accommodation is needed to include ADHD testing, immigration hardship evaluations, and gastric evaluations required pre-surgery. Our team also provides psychotherapy and we treat children, adolescents, adults, couples, families and older patients. We treat adjustment issues, sexuality issues, relationship problems, job difficulties, depression, anxiety and learning difficulties. We also provide alcohol assessments for those involved in the legal system along with expert testimony. My approach is both collaborative and supportive, and my goal is to enable the patient to gain insight and make positive changes to one's life while also improving coping. To assist with the therapy process, the motivated patient can also read my book "The ABC's of Mental Health: Ten Chapters to Healing" is a laypersons guide to addressing mental health problems and provides a framework for how I do therapy. I received my master’s degree in Educational Psychology from UNC@Chapel Hill, and my doctoral degree in Cinical Psychology from VCPCP which is a consortium of schools that include W&M, EVMS, ODU and NSU. My specialization is psychotherapy and I have hand selected every single member of our team.

I have been seeing Dr. Goldberg for about six months. He is supportive and empathetic. You get out of therapy what you put in. If you do the work and show up, you'll get great results with Dr. Goldberg.
