Comments from Jacqueline Richard, R.N., PsyD.

Dr. Rubino is a very fine psychotherapist who has an excellent reputation for helping at risk families and children who have not been able to be helped by other clinicians.  He is a master of the craft and science of psychotherapy.  It is a pleasure to be his colleague.  I unreservedly recommend him as a clinician and business partner.

Comments from a local Marriage and Family Therapist

Michael Rubino has compassion and expertise with clients.  I have known him professionally  for years and trusted him  with my own son's therapy.  He has been willing to see all levels of serious issues with his clients from the beginning of his professional career.

To whom it may concern,

As a family therapist who has spent most of my adult life working with teenagers and families either one on one or in groups through the Challenge Day organization, I am proud to endorse Dr Michael Rubino as one of the most talented and committed therapists I have ever met 

Having lived through numerous physical and emotional challenges himself Dr Rubino has a unique ability to compassionately and powerfully guide his clients and to challenge them to step up to any challenge they may be facing. 

As a workshop facilitator I have had several opportunities to work with Dr Rubino's clients both during and after they have worked with him. In every case his clients have touted his support as one of the main reasons they are hopeful about their futures.  

Sincerely, Rich Dutra-St John MA MFT

"I had been trying all year to get an IEP for my son who has Bipolar Disorder.  Dr. Rubino attended one meeting and my son had his IEP. Furthermore, Dr. Rubino followed the entire process so we didn't have any problems. I cannot thank him enough

Michael, thanks for this informative article. As one who specializes in self-injury and teaches other mental health professionals to work with this population I only wish you would have left the possibility of suicidality to the middle where you expounded on the possibility. In fact, most self-injurers are trying to avoid suicide! Yes, they may get there by accident or if untreated over a long time. Unfortunately this behavior is treated with disdain by health professionals and therapists due to fear of suicidality or distaste for the act. I agree whole-heartedly that finding a therapist who works with self-injury is very important. I always tell my students to refer to therapists who do this work if they are uncomfortable. Thanks again for your thoughtful article. Lisa Cohen Bennett, PhD
