I found it very helpful. The breathing skills Dr Albin showed me helped my other anxieties relax and while on the plane. Very knowledgable.

I have had a very serious fear of flying for sometime now and after looking online for treatment, I came across Behavioral Associates. They advertise virtual reality therapy, which I am sure would have been great, had I ever reached that point. I met with Dr Reiner, which I was told would be a 30 minute consultation. After 15 minutes in his office, I was brought to the front desk and was told that the total would be $225, when quoted at $150 over the phone. When I questioned this, I was told that I would need to complete a personality test for $75, which was never explained to me until this moment. I left upset but was desperate to conquer this fear of flying, so I let it go. Monday when I went to meet Dr Jayme Albin, who apparently was a steal at $250 for 45 minutes, she was running 5 minutes late. I have no problem with running late but when you finish the session 5 minutes early and were 5 minutes late at the start, that adds up. I left again upset but wanted to make sure that I was not over-reacting to the situation, so I left and decided to discuss this with a few colleagues of mine. I happen to be a psychotherapist myself and I know how things work as both the patient and the therapist. On the third visit, Dr Albin again was running 7 minutes late and now all I could do was think about the time. I was placed in a chair, hooked up to a heart rate monitor and was told to close my eyes and relax and focus on my breathing. I was finally thinking "yes! I am going to start to learn how to breathe so I can get on this flight in 3 weeks" Wrong! I was taking deep breaths at first and then I heard typing on the computer. She had to have been working on emails or something else because she had said the same thing three times, all 5 minutes apart! When I opened my eyes and was starting to look at what she was doing, she would instruct me to close my eyes and to focus again on my breathing. I now had been breathing, with no instruction or special techniques, with my eyes closed for 25 minutes, something I could have done at my own home for free. When I looked at the clock and noticed she was stopping 5 minutes early again, I knew I had to say something. When I explained my experience since I had started treatment and that I was upset about the time, in a defensive and snide way, Dr. Albin responded "well then I'll give you 60 minutes next time. But I don't consider myself to be a professional that gets paid by the minute". There was no "I'm sorry I didn't realize" or anything of the sort and actually yes, the payment is calculated by the minute, so I am being ripped off. When I spoke with Dr. Reiner about my experience and that I was upset, he did offer me one free session, but at this point I have no confidence in the clinicians, so the treatment will be useless. After 3 sessions and $725 later, I have received no techniques to help with my fear of flying and have been told that I will not be given a refund, even for the time that was not given! I am disgusted at the ethical standards Behavioral Associates abides by and will be reporting them to the Office of Mental Health, Better Business Bureau, Consumer Affairs, National Association of Social Workers, American Psychological Association, and the American Psychiatric Association.

Pros: none

ALL CHARGES WERE DROPPED ON FRIDAY OF LAST WEEK AS THE PERSON WHO MISTAKENLY PUT THE FLOOD LIGHT/CAMERA IN THE BATHROOM FINALLY CAME FORWARD.
For example, regarding the comments by this negative review. Even the most ardent conservative believes that people are innocent until proven guilty. Do you not believe this? It certainly appears so since you seemed to have convicted me before the evidence was examined rationally. I want to ask you what your agenda is? One thing it is not is being fair and rational. You took what everyone involved admitted was a slanted report and choose to publicize it. Were you unselfishly being a good and responsible citizen and making sure that everyone who might have missed it became aware of the predator lurking the east side? What was your hurry. I would imagine you feel pretty foolish now knowing that a careful study of the evidence revealed my innocence. Not insufficient proof but simply the wrong guy, according to the ADA. Though I am not sure what your agenda is, I doubt you have the stones to make a proper apology. Somehow, people who are afraid to use their real names have a natural aversion of coming out from beneath their little rock. You, sport, are the only guilty person here. Try to remember that sunshine is the best disinfectant!
1- Why don't you use your real name?
2- Your use of the term "fled" is purposely misleading. Did you know that the "spy camera" was purchased so I could watch my kids (I have five) in the backyard of my house in Bedford if I was called into the house for a phone call? This was proven by the NYPD, after thorough investigation.
3-Did you know that the "spy camera" was inoperable because there was no encoder box? It was misplaced in Bedford and the camera portion was brought to the office so I could order another one? This was also investigated and proven by the NYPD and the ADA.
4- Since I never in my wild dreams thought I would arrested what is wrong with taking a walk? I don't know about you but I think a person would have to be nuts to "dump" evidence since every block has web cameras. There is no longer any "privacy" on the streets of NY. Anyone who knows me knows how restless I am and after four hours of sitting with patients I frequently dash out of the office to either work out or take a brisk walk. The word "flee" implies guilt and exemplifies someone with an agenda. What is yours?
5- Next time you advise someone to "work out his problems" take the time to be more thorough because hundreds of people rely on my integrity. If I was convicted of a crime many more lives than mine would be adversely affected. I have a staff of more than twenty therapists who treat more than 400 patients a week. When you purposely publish something based on your interpretation of just a small portion of evidence, which already is carved up to attract attention, you are being woefully irresponsible. You are not just hurting me or my family but hundreds of patients who are entitled to their privacy when they see their doctors. Next time you rashly and irresponsibly judge another person, better take a better look at yourself in the mirror. And try to keep in mind that lots of sacrifice has been made protecting these same rights to make sure they are not reduced to privileges. If you are ever in the unfortunate spot that I was in, you might understand the difference, and be real thankful about our laws. Just because people can openly express opinions in our culture doesn't mean that responsibility for accuracy and objectivity is removed; it is actually increased. You need a civics lesson if you want to be taken seriously.

Pros: PERSON WHO MISTAKENLY PUT LIGHT IN CAME FORWARD

Cons: CASE SHOULD HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATED BEFORE ARREST NOT AFTER

.

Dr. Robert H. Reiner, Ph.D. and his company Behavioral Associates may indeed be able to help you, but first he should work through his legal and ethical issues. Recently he admitted to NYPD detectives that he owned a spy camera (a hidden camera disguised as a light bulb) that "someone" had placed on the ceiling of his unisex office bathroom, above the toilet. He fled the office before the police arrived but returned before the police left. He was arrested at his office and charged with unlawful surveillance.
