Avoid. Forms ideas and doesn't believe you/cuts you off when you disagree. She wanted me to pay for a curriculum on top of her fee in order to speak about the issue I needed to in therapy. She cut me off multiple times during our sessions to suggest this when I was trying to talk about my feelings and I had already said no. Wasted time with this and the incessant suggestions get consent to talk to my past therapist after I said no. She wouldn't work on what I came to therapy for until I gave consent for her to talk to him. I wasn't comfortable with this but I was already $800 into sessions and had not gotten what I needed so I said yes. This event highly retraumatized me. And then she couldn't schedule another session until 2-3 weeks later. I do not know the extent of her conversation with my past therapist and I feel highly uncomfortable about it. She made my situation much worse. I did not feel respected or heard. I gave her the opportunity to apologize and she didn't.
