My experience with Dr.Rice's therapy was very disappointing. For the first couple of sessions he put in his best effort and that's how I got sold on continuing with him. But later he started sort of slacking off.But that's not the worst of it. He would make these offensive comments and I really didn't know what to think of him. Having read all the previous comments I'm guessing he must be hating his patients. He needs to retire. Period.
Wow, just wow. I don't even want to describe some of the things that went on during my therapy sessions with Dr. Rice. I will say that if you have masochistic tendencies, then this is the psychologist for you. If you actually want to feel better, stay far away from him. I'm still blown away by some of the things he said and did. I'll get over my shock, but I'm most concerned with the seriously mentally ill people who have such low self esteem that they will just continue to be abused by him, somehow thinking they deserve it. Also, he calls himself a Christian yet I'm sure Jesus wouldn't approve of his behaviors, particularly when dealing with such a weak and vulnerable population. Another thing that I find....curious is that the three 5 star reviews (2 of which are a double post) were written within a week of each other. I believe these reviews were not written by actual customers.
My visits with Dr. Rice were disappointing. He bragged that he knew how to do things, but while he assigned homework, he barely reviewed it. Instead of getting to the core issues, he was eager to do "guided imagery" which did nothing to address the real issues -- it was just a temporary distraction.
