I met with her while searching for a new psychologist. I shared with her at the start of the session that I had checked into a psychiatric hospital about two weeks ago during a serious mental health crisis, was currently in an intensive outpatient program, was meeting with her on my first day back at work, easing into it for just two days a week to start and that I was very scared. So she had lots of info that indicated that I was fragile, anxious and only a few weeks removed from an awful, wrenching and very frightening experience. It was a bizarre and disturbing session. She was condescending, dismissive, self-focused, rushed and largely unsympathetic. She spoke for about 80% of the session and regularly interrupted me. Most of our time consisted of her asking me rapid-fire questions and responding to my answer with quickly imparted “advice” immediately followed by another question. I left astonished and puzzled and thinking that she would not be helpful and was possibly harmful. I cancelled our follow up appointment and continued search for a new psychologist, which was successful.
RUN don't WALK..I should have searched the web before I went to see this psycho. She was an instigator, showed no empathy and endorses poor values. Stay away, she will not help you.Not a good couples therapist at all.
Be aware this psychologist did not help me at all. She gave poor advice. I felt more depressed after leaving her sessions. My conversations with her hit a dead end quickly and DID NOT HELP. My guts tells me she was making me feel worse so she could keep me forever. She couldn't stand spending one more minute with clients and always cut our conversations when time is up and push me out of her office. My problems got worse after working with her. Don't use her.
I found her to be abrasive. I was treated as a defendant in Judge Judy's court and not as a human being going to a professional for help. I would have expected at least some degree of empathy and understanding but instead felt as though I was being accused of something (I'm not sure what). I left the session feeling defensive and with my belief that I can receive help for my concern shaken.
