Complaint Review: Amy Goldman- LCSW
Amy Goldman- LCSW Amy Diana Goldman, MA, MSW, LCSW, misguided, demonstrated poor boundaries and her personal ideology was in Conflict with the wishes of the Court, and the other therapists assigned to the case. Venice, California
The sine qua non of an evaluator is that one should never provide counseling or therapeutic services for one or both of the people being evaluated. The court, relying on someone believed to be an expert, actually receives poor advice that the court does not have the expertise to evaluate.
Thenceforth the court makes decisions which they believe are in the best interest of the children, despite that their decisions minimize or remove the other parent from their childrens life. The undisputed fact is, the greatest harm that is inflicted through these decisions is heaped on the shoulders of the children involved. They are invisible and permanent wounds that our children will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Nothing justifies the minimization or removal of a fit and loving parent from a childs life.
There truly are no words to describe the pain a Mother goes through when being separated from their children. After feeling the child grow inside them for nine months; feeling them kick for the first time, feeling them turn somersaults inside their wombs, savoring every moment of the birthing experience that God bestowed upon them; for a Mother the pain is indescribable. It goes against everything nature intended. The bottom line is, when the Mother is a fit, loving and have been the primary care giver of the child since birth, the separation is devastating beyond description. For that reason, any fit and loving Mother who is separated from their child needs emotional support.
It so difficult for my wife to be without the daughter she loves so much. She often cries herself to sleep. Though her son and myself try to comfort her, there is a preterition which will never be filled.
Ms. Goldman, we known each other for over 10 years. We sat across from each other and spoke mono e mono. I read every book you ever recommended to me in regards to the issues at hand.
Seeing how you have been attached to these proceedings for the last 10 years, there is distinct documentation on record to your voice and position though out the years.
The web site for the CA Board of Behavioral Sciences, asks that LCSW be people of Integrity; to be Professional and Dedicated, to Serve with Excellence.
Ms. Goldman, it is in my view, that your actions, especially of late, are not beholden to the high standards of your profession.
Could you have answered under testimony, when asked about a recommendation? Yes. Should you have? NO.
Could you have helped the father with his boundaries issues, in such a contested case? Yes. Should you have? NO
Could you have chose not to speak to the Mother, yet speak regularly to the father? Yes. Should you have? NO.
Its my opinion that in the last three years, your outward biasness towards the mother reflected negatively on towards the child, and left no incentive for the child to work on the relationship with her mother.
As stated under oath by another PhD health professional on case, The relationship between the mother and daughter should be paramount, not the relationship with the therapist. That can be changed, not a mother and daughter relationship.
Your gross error in judgment in regards to appearing in Superior Court of Los Angeles on April 19, 2010 is objectionable, and improper. There was no reason whatsoever for you to make an appearance, other than in condemnation to the other parent.
To say you were there to assist the child is insupportable. If it was your inclination to support the minor child, then that was best achieved in your office, under session, not by a court appearance.
You were neither a party nor a witness to the proceedings of April 19, 2010. Your issues of alleged internet reviews were neither relevant nor appropriate to the matters at hand.
Furthermore, your threat to the opposite party, which incidentally is now part of court record, that your cousin holds an office in the Superior Court of Los Angeles, was deplorable.
Moreover, you were overheard by several witnesses, of allegedly calling the mother a Moron in front of her own daughter
You should be ashamed of yourself Amy Goldman. Never once have you shown any empathy for a Mother who lost her child. Furthermore, it my opinion your behaviors, especially of late, are not beholden a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
Shame on you Amy Goldman. Shame on you.
