Rivkah, I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for all of your help a couple years ago. I have recently been admitted to Graduate School at Brooklyn College. It was absolutely with your assistance it was possible. I have continued with the therapy foundation you set and continue to attend (with the VA). Thank you again! -Troy
I really appreciated Rivkah's style of couple's therapy. She gave us useful insight, strategies and "homework" to apply to our everyday life situations. I liked how practical and down to earth she was during our sessions. I also felt she was fair and neutral which I'm sure could be hard while watching me and my husband fight or complain about things. On the rare occasion where we needed to have an "emergency session", Rivkah was always compassionate and made time to squeeze us into her schedule last minute. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for this style of therapy.
I highly recommend her services.
Being the primary caretaker for a terminally ill family member, which coincided with my failed marriage and my prolonged unemploymen,t reduced me to feeling unappreciated, humiliated, embarrassed. My professional life and my private life were in shambles. I knew I needed help, and as fate would have it, I began therapy with Rivkah Kaufman.
Having a viewpoint that was so different from my own eased my despair. I almost immediately sensed that Rivkah was allowing me to dictate the pace of our sessions. I appreciated this greatly, because the truth concerning any situation takes time to become apparent. Therapy generally improves thinking skills, both immediately and in the long term. Therapy can significantly improve creativity as well. Rivkah has helped me push through the dark times by emphasizing that the past does not dictate the future. She has also stressed learning to live in the immediate present, instead of postponing life for some future moment. I've learned to trivialize the trivialities, but more importantly, to devote myself to the aspects of life that provide meaning (love, work, respect, passion, etc). Rivkah Kaufman is in the business of helping people, and I suspect if she didn't need the money, she'd be helping people anyway.
Ms.Kaufman has been amazing. She is very caring and makes you feel very comortable. She will go through great lengths in helping you deal with your problems. I was at a very low point in my life and she made me realize the changes I must go through help me feel better. She helped me develop coping skills with my anxiety. Every time I walk out of her office, I feel like a new person. I have been seeing her for almost three months and will continure to do so in the future. Virtually every problem that I have told her, she has an answer for one of them.

Rivkah has helped me through such a difficult time in my life. Her insights with my problems has helped me to realize the changes I have to make in order to get better. My depression and severe anxiety take over and Rivkah has helped me to develop coping skills in order to deal with it. She's helped me to get over huge obstacles in my life, things I never thought I would be able to overcome. I've had her as a therapist for over a year now and I have made a tremendous improvement from where I once was. She is very patient and validates my feelings. She truly empathizes and cares for each and every person she interacts with. I'm extremely fortunate to have Rivkah as my therapist.
Rivkah has been an amazing support from the get go. She dives right in and makes you feel validated and restores your sense of worth with her dedication, concern and ability to convey empathy.
She displays an almost instant insight to some of the core issues that drive the problem along with practical very helpful direction and exercises which makes you feel immediately comfortable with her.
Thank you for all your support and help in teaching us new communication skills and and giving us hope when we had none!!!
Mrs Rivhah Kaufman is simply "BEAUTIFUL"!
And I am not referring just to her appearance, but mostly and most importantly I am talking about her abilities, knowledge and capacity as a professional psycologist and as a person!
Not only she is incredible in her job, but she is a very caring, sensitive woman who truly cares about her patients. Her warm smile, her sweet voice and her gentle manners makes you feel "like home". She has the right questions and answers to make you see what is the best thing to do in your case, she helps you find solutions to your problems, through your own thoughts and emotions. She has the right way to show you the "light in your darkest night".
She helped me through the most difficult time of my life, she stood by me, confort me, advised me, guide me through my problem, healed me and literally she reformed me into a new, stable and content-grateful person. Thanks to her, I have managed to take back my life and be happy again.
I am so thankful I went to ask for her help in the first place... It was the best gift I could ever get to myself!
So, as I said in the beginning of my text: Mrs Rivkah is simply "BEAUTIFUL"
God bless you and thank you for evrything! :-)
