It was a pleasure to be able to work with Robert Bakst. Going through a bit of a rough patch so these sessions were mandatory. Robert made me look forward to them. It gave me a chance to be able to speak my mind without being judged; he listens, and understands, while also offering practical intelligent insight. He always always asks if you have any concerns you want or need to discuss, and, here’s the real kicker, I believe he truly cares. You can also talk about the weather & the annoying new roundabouts they’re putting in everywhere & share some laughs, it’s pretty cool. I’m going back to school this fall for social work and he’s even gone as far as to offer me, multiple times, any help and advice he can in the future. You’ve made an impact sir, and I thank you for that.

I had the privilege of working with Dr. Bakst and I can confidently say that they are an exceptional psychologist. From the moment I stepped into their office, I felt at ease and comfortable discussing my concerns. Dr. Baskt possesses remarkable listening skills and a genuine empathy that made me feel heard and understood. Their expertise and knowledge in the field of psychology are evident through their insightful guidance and effective therapeutic techniques. Throughout our sessions, Dr. Bakst provided me with practical tools and coping strategies that helped me navigate through challenging situations. Their ability to break down complex concepts into easily understandable terms made the sessions highly beneficial and enlightening.
