Found him to be unprofessional,judgmental, and bias. Would not advise me of any appts set with other parent for my daughter.Would learn of appts same day from the ex-spouse. Was completely ignored and disregarded through the whole process. Would absolutely avoid. A complete waste of time.

To put it simply, you can stop looking, He's your man!
Dr. Firpi's ideas, concepts, and his straight forward methods are excellent. Exactly what I was hoping for from the court appointed reunification therapist. He doesn't sugar coat anything, he expresses his concerns, gives great feedback, and has worked for the best interest of my daughter. When it was appropriate he got us out of the box(office) and transitioned us into a normal daily setting, giving us(my daughter and I) a opportunity to interact as father and daughter in a natural setting. The chaperoned visits, well, she's awesome too! Fits right in just like family. Currently we are in the home stretch of the reunification therapy. It was a GOD sent to have Dr. FIrpi and his assistant for our therapy.

I can't tell you how afraid I was when I was court-ordered to see Dr. Firpi, especially after reading some of the reviews I found online. My ex and I had been fighting for years. Completely ridiculous. Undue added stress on a woman's life, you know? I finally had enough and hired an attorney. My attorney recommended Dr. Firpi because he is a straight-shooter. Meaning, there is no BS involved - and he knows the court system and exactly how it works. I am SO GLAD that I kept my appointment - it changed my life. My family's life. My experience with Dr. Firpi was fantastic. The office was comfortable, he was a great listener, and he had excellent insight. I had been in a battle for years with my ex and Dr. Firpi put an end to that almost immediately. Please do not believe all the negative things you may find online. He is not a woman-hater. He does not take children away. He was extremely helpful. Really, I can't stress this fact enough. Please do not be afraid if you are a woman and have to go see him (or a man)! I did not find him to be the monster or unfair tyrant that some of these reviews make him out to be. In fact, my experience was completely the opposite. And yes, I am a woman. I am not rich. I am not high powered. I am just a working mom. I found Dr. Firpi to be KIND. HONORABLE. And FAIR. Don't be afraid ladies! He has years of experience. He knows how the courts work. He is a straight-shooter who will tell it like it is. Be yourself when you go in there and talk to him. Don't be a big ball of hate. Lay your cards on the table. He can help you sort things out. He deserves a big pat on the back and loads of great recognition for what he did for my family. I thank God for Dr. Firpi. You will, too.

I have had the unfortunate experience of having my daughter placed with Dr. Firpi as her reunification supervised visitation therapist by the judges orders through collaboration of attorneys whom made decisions without including my opinion or judgment as the parent and mother to my only daughter. I contacted Dr. Firpi and set up a meeting with him before my daughters first visit was scheduled to find out how the process was going to occur, how he would consider my daughters concerns and feelings in this first reunification process and to get a feel for how he would handle this very delicate matter. He was extremely judgmental of me and the case that had been handled very carefully and cautiously by previous therapist for many years regarding my daughters sexual abuse. He refused to want to hear or know anything about my daughter and said he had been ordered by the courts to handle reunification and did not care about what had happened in the past as he kept picking up phone calls that he was receiving on his cell while we were meeting and discussing my concerns which was extremely rude and completely unprofessional for someone whom cant help but to brag about all his years of experience, qualifications and professionalism, he was showing me none of what he was claiming. It is needless to say how extremely concerning and terrifying it was for myself to know that my daughter would be in the hands of this supposedly "well respected" therapist, whom alleged verbally to me while in his office with no knowledge or background on the case that it was my fault that my daughter had been abused by her biological father. I broke down and began to cry in his office and left in tears after he made this all but horrific claim to someone he did not know or knew what my daughter and myself had been through for many years and through much therapy and were still going through. He is in fact a monster of a human being with no feelings for others or care for them. He only cares about payment which is ridiculously expensive and will not accept any insurance or payment plan. I am fighting in court to have my daughter switched to another therapist but have yet to have a change in therapist occur. He flat out told me that he would not be giving any touchy feely therapy to my daughter on the reunification with her father whom she had not seen in four years (since she was 3)and would be thrown in the room with him to see if she would sink or swim emotionally. This is inhuman and completely unethical. My daughter has had to visit 3 times so far and on some of these visits he has left my daughter by herself with her father which is illegal since these are to be supervised visitations. This man has no right to be practicing or even be licensed to work with kids or adults with this lack of care and concern for his clients!!!
