Patient reviews for Helen Schwartz, LCSW
This Counselor was extremely rude she rolled her eyes at me while i was sharing my pain and anguish with her. Her tone was more that of someone trying to pry information out of you aggressively than a confiding ear. I have been to other providers via zoc doc and this has definitely been the worst ever. would never recommend i left feeling much worst than I had even walked in. extremely unprofessional and uncomfortable.
She’s such a sweet lady, she did everything to make me feel comfortable. I’m glad I decided to go with her.
She was very helpful and patient with me and listened very well and made me feel comfortable
She’s amazing !!! Can’t wait to keep going back lol
I stopped seeing this therapist because she spent the entire session talking about herself. She also had me wait 45 minutes because her earlier appointment showed up late. I would suggest trying to find someone else who is more respectful of their client's time.
Like always, great , and for whoever thinks she's all about the money , your greatly mistaken, shame on you,,maybe you need more help than you think..
Caring, helpful , attentive , very concerned about the well being and comfort level.
It was great. Before I went there I had in my mind how I wanted the session to go but after 5 minutes with her, i realize I should be open and the session went so much better than I anticipated. She is great . She truly cares about her patients. My boyfriend and I have been seeing her for couple counseling and she been very helpful so far.
First time really speaking with a professional after years of thinking it wasn’t for me. Helen and I had a fantastic conversation and I’m happy to have found someone who listens exceptionally well, asks questions that trigger incredible thought, in a nurturing atmosphere.
I’ve been coming to her for some time and it’s almost as if she hasn’t been listening to me at all; very aloof at times and presumptuous .
Already after the the first visit I felt better. She is lovely and professional at the same time.
She's very professional and nurturing.
Helen is very professional!
She's very nice as soon as she meets you. She makes you feel really comfortable.
For the 1st time in my life I feel hope. I felt welcomed and supported in one session. The area was also a relaxing ambience in which I felt at home. Thank you for being you.
I loved it she made me feel comfortable and welcomed
Always good, mind relieving and helpful..
Very informative and very easy to talk too. Looking forward to the next visit
I’m sure she’s great therapist when is not tired. But through out the session is falling asleep and kept asking me the same questions. But I would not return because she did not ask me the right questions, she was all over the place, telling me she’s going to retire in 4 years. Asking me what I thought about the reviews on Zocdoc. That’s not the type of therapist I’m looking for.
Very professional with a straight forward honest approach. She was very warm friendly & open. Made us feel at home & very comfortable at all times.
I absolutely love Helen. She makes you feel super comfortable to talk about anything. She guides you to be open and honest with not only her but most importantly yourself. I adore her.
She was very professional and nice. I definitely felt comfortable and will be back.
I have had many sessions with Dr. Helen Schwartz. I can conclude that she is very helpful and empathetic when she has the energy to provide necessary care. She's wonderful in that regard. I personally wouldn't return after my last session when she just asked timepass questions during the second half of my session - I could tell she was tired. In my experience she hasn't asked me the right questions which makes the sessions directionless, digressive and difficult to open up with the concerns at hand. As much as I wished she had been the right therapist for me because of the proximity of her office and my accepted insurance, she's not. Great experienced therapist, just not for me.
wonderful, warm and gives so much of herself. Hoping to come back soon.
Today was my first visit, and I felt relaxed just by talking to her. She has a calm voice, that made me feel comfortable and consequently I started to open up easily.
She was very professional and an active listener it was pleasant to talk to someone who has experience and positive insights. I felt comfortable and I felt safe. I think I finally found someone who can help me understand the root of my problems.
Dr. Schwartz is kind hearted and professional.
Always good ,
dr schwartz appears to be very much in-demand and could likely use an assistant to take off some of her load so she can focus more during sessions
Very good doctor can’t wait for my next visit
I ALWAYS WILL SAY, HELEN SCHWARTZ IS THE BEST DR. I HAVE EVER SEEN. SHE REALLY KNOWS HOW TO MAKE YOU FEEL REAL AND SPECIAL. SHE LISTENS TO ALL AND BY THE TIME YOU LEAVE YOU WISH YOU WERE RIGHT BACK.. LOVE HER. VALERIE J.
She is very attentive. And very caring. Would definitely recommend
What threw me off was looking for the place, because it's residential. But, once entering, it was a really peaceful and intimate environment. It was comfortable being there and comfortable talking to Helen! It was a wise choice.
It was my first session. I didn't expected to be excited to go back to therapy. She listens but interjects when needed.
Professional, caring and supportive. Would recommend hands down. Helen Schwartz was just what I was looking for and more..!
Helen was great! She was super straightforward and professional. It was a couples therapy session. She got right to the point of the different issues at hand in order to address each one. She also helped my boyfriend feel more comfortable since he's never done therapy before. Hope to see her again soon!!
Really wanted to get to the bottom of my problems. Extremely helpful. Was seen a bit late but was told why and that's all I can ask for. We all have interruptions in our lives that can't be helped. The same happened here. I'm just happy that she cares about my needs.
it is distracting when she frequently answers the phone or the door
this location seems pretty popular, so one late session cascades to the following ones—I waited nearly 45 min after my scheduled appt time to be seen
She’s very nice and pleasant and she made me feel right at home so talking to her came so naturally
Every time I go I feel relief afterwards. Highly recommend it
Awesome first visit and I’m looking forward to more. She’s straightforward, honest, and clearly well-learned.
Ms. Helen Schwartz was very professional and very helpful. We had a couples therapy and we both felt good after just one visit.
she may seem to go off tangent at times, but there is a valid reason for it. she is pretty spot on identifying key insights that you didn’t disclose explicitly or may not have even remembered. I learned a lot in just a brief session, so will definitely go back.
Comfortable and pleasant.
Helen is the real deal! She knows how to get to the root and quickly. She is both empathetic and no-nonsense. She treats you with kindness and respect and does not pass judgement or unnecessarily label you. Highly recommend.
She is amazing! Lovely office. Very attentive to clients needs. Warm and non judgmental.
She does not care that her patients are waiting for an incredibly long time. Her concern is only of herself.
