I started seeing Dr. Michael Rimm in 2020 to present. I came to him for help with my 7 year old at the time. I was undergoing defiant behavior from my child. I sought him out thinking I would be getting my son one on one therapy, but to my surprise he worked more with me in order to help my son. He did not have to do even one individual therapy with my child, yet the issues that I was dealing with are not happening anymore. Dr. Rimm's first line of action was a holistic approach through family systems theory. Being a single mom for the most part and having a step father figure in the picture created a lot of power struggle issues and triangulation, giving my son too much emotional responsibility and control. Working with Dr. Rimm, we learned how to take back control of our parenting and sought out help from school teachers and other adult figures in my sons life (grandparents, biological dad, aunts, etc.) to show my child who was on board with our parenting plans. Having very clear communication with the adults involved in my child's life made SUCH a huge impact on his behavior because he started seeing a consistency in knowing what is expected of him and what is expected from the adults in his life, which alleviates a lot of stress on children, and helps them be emotionally stable. When our children see the adult figures in their lives working together and being supported/backed up on parenting decisions, this makes our children behave better. Honestly, this was such a refreshing approach to therapy and I am SO glad that my son did not get one on one therapy solely. As parents, we are the ones who need to be in control of therapy sessions. We have to know what is being said to our children, what the goals and plans are. What I've learned about emotional problems is that SUPPORT plays the biggest role, at least in my situation. This obviously won't apply to everyone, but for my situation (blended families, single moms, lack of communication between people who talk to my son), the family systems approach has been a miracle. I am forever grateful of the time spent with Dr. Rimm for helping me look at my problems from this perspective. I am way more supported and confident in my parenting knowledge and not giving my child to much to bear with emotionally. Dr. Rimm gave me clear cut directions of what to do and it really changed up my child's behavior. His approach is about empowering us parents and learning how to utilize the community and village to make major positive impacts on our kids. Just be open to the approach and stick with the process. Thank you Dr. Rimm!
For our family, working with Dr Gabi has been real eye opener. Often children misbehave because their parents are not consistent with discipline and want to be "friends" with their kids. Dr. Gabi has reminded us that, as parents, we are actually in charge of our teenager. The most interesting was that it seemed that our son really needed us to take the power back from him. We have been making good progress in improving behavior and overall family relationships since we started working with Dr. Gabi in December 2021.
We have a kid diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We started working with Dr. Gabi last Fall and already have made huge progress: at home we argue less, us, parents, have assumed more assertive approach as to not tolerating certain behavior, our son listens to what Dr. Gabi says and trusts her. Plus she has an adorable therapy dog Melli :). I would recommend Dr. Gabi to any parent who is dealing with kids' serious behavioral issues at home or at school.
I was looking up Dr. Rimms info to send to a friend in need of some couples therapy and i saw these reviews so I thought I’d share my experience as well.I have an extensive history of trauma as well as ADHD, Complex PTSD and chronic depression. I initially was looking for a physiatrist to prescribe my meds and was told that Rimm only treats if you are also willing to do talk therapy. This was perfect for me since usual I have to find a separate doc for each. I saw him on a weekly basis for about 5 years, until I relocated to the mainland.I found Dr. Rimm to be very helpful because he treated me as the whole person. Yes, he will want to meet with you and from time to time he will want to include the vital individuals in your family circle. It is helpful in understanding the dynamics that you are facing at home. Yes, he sometimes wonders off on his own experiences but it always seemed to be in an effort to connect and reassure me of his comprehension of my issues and experiences. He can sometimes be blunt but i personally appreciated this approach. He has a very unique approach to therapy and it wont fit all patients. He helped me gain self confidence and learn to set healthy boundaries. He helped me to redirect my interpersonal relationships in a way that gave me the power! He will forever hold a special place with me because of the way he helped me to see the world around me and be honest with myself about my relationships with my husband, children and my parents.No therapist is going to fit all personalities and you must search for the style that works best for you. But i will always encourage others to give Dr. Rimm and his wife a try.As an added note, his office staff had a turnover a while back and that experience was a bit bumpy. However, there’s always going to be those rough patches in the medical field.
DANGEROUSLY EMOTIONALLY CRUEL.DO NOT GO IF YOU ARE GRIEVING !!I went to see him shortly after the sudden death of my only son. During our session he interrupted it by taking a routine phone call from HIS SON telling me how I would certainly understand and do the same thing. I had to listen to the entire call. Then he spent the rest of our session talking about himself. If there have ever been more insensitive acts by a psychiatrist, I can not imagine it.
There are many similarities in previous postings and had I reviewed them my time with Dr Rimm would have ended much sooner.Oh my! He does love to share with you his accomplishments and the technique's he's learned over the years and then your session is over. After my session's I would go over what Dr Rimm discussed we me. I was amazed others shared the same thoughts. It's more a Dr Rimm me session. He gets paid and his clients/patient's get to make another appointment to listen to Dr Rimm talk about his knowledge and his success.During one of my session's I had to ask him to quit talking. I had enough listening about his accomplishments.Another family member had several visits with Dr Rimm and would be so frustrated after each visit with him and again for similar reasons. It was about Michael Rimm!Due to lack of professional guidance by Dr Rimm, the issue in their personal life did not end well.A situation that needed assistance by a professional and was ignored due to ego of a Dr of Psychiatric medicine had a turn of event that was unnecessary.Anyone who reads this I can only suggest be smart, trust yourself and read other reviews.Even a guy like this scores once in awhile.The best in your search for healthy mental health...David
My son is 11 yrs old and have seen Dr Gabrielle for his autism and ADHD a couple times just before the pandemic hit. Recently I been trying to get him an appointment to see her again, especially because we were in the process of getting him an ABA. We never got to that point due to the pandemic. So I tried to get him in since he has been suicidal. They turned him away, saying they were full and not taking new patients. Ummm he was already a patient. In My situation I would expect them to find time for him. Her assistant, Jessica was really rude saying "Don't you understand what full means?" yes I do! But do you understand what suicidal means?!!! They need to be more compassionate on our children who are so vulnerable, frustrated and depressed. My son needs help and will only see her. He has seen other psychiatrist but refuses to see them. My son feels comfortable talking to her. I told them all this and still they refused to see him. I was so mad that I hung up, because my blood pressure was boiling and not so nice words would've came out of my mouth. So that is why I gave them a one star. It's sad that one of the people my son felt he could trust, won't see him 🤦♀️🤬
Incompetent. Child abuser.
It has been my experience that Dr. Gabi is kind, extremely professional, and genuinely committed to her practice. It is wildly difficult to find a health care provider who is interested in their patients as people, rather than just numbers and letters on a chart. Dr. Gabi is one of these people.
This is the worst practice I've ever dealt with. My heart breaks for the people they are "helping". They seem nice and flexible at first but will soon demand unrealistic results. Nasty superiority complex, unprofessional, controlling...I can't think of anything nice to say about them. Please note that I emphasize the word "them"...both Dr. Michael Rimm and Dr. Gabrielle Rimm are hurting their crafts and their patients, as they have more than hurt me. They sent me into a downward spiral in my life. Please. Find someone else. You deserve better.
