A Doctor Who actually listened to what I had to say And made a difference.
in Waterbury, CT |
During several sessions with Dr. Behrends,, I found him asleep while I was talking with him. I have heard this from other patients, whom in turn terminated their psychotherapy. I continued with him for several years, until he told me a should see a psychotherapist who could better help me with my problems. The whole idea was that HE would be the one to do my therapy. Needless to say, I terminated my relationship with him and have found a therapist who has helped me tremendously. I
