Advice & Tips: In addition to treating the things I was in counseling for, Kathy also helped build my self esteem. She persuaded me to get involved in arts & crafts as coping skills (and I love it). She retired as of July 1, 2013, at which point I changed to Nancy Stockman for the same reasons and I see positive effects, it will take time to get to the stage of results I'd had with Kathy after seeing her for almost 18 years. My psyhciatrist, (who primarily did med checks based on my counselor/therapist's suggestions), resigned rather suddenly and moved to Texas. I had a choice of 4 replacements and chose Amber Edwards, ARNP. I've had one "telemed" session with her. However, she is much more in favor of the prescription medication detox my gen doc wanted to do but my old psychiatrist vetoed. In her words, she is much more in favor of a holistic approach.

Advice & Tips: I've been working with Kathy for over 15 years and she has done a lot for my self image in addition to helping me with my mental illnesses. She also got me to try drawing/sketching as a therapy, which I kind of scoffed at because the best I had ever been able to do before was to draw stick figures. But I gave it 100% effort and discovered that I actually had some talent and found it to be a great stress reliever and a wonderful hobby. After that, I expanded into other arts & crafts on my own and earn a little spending money by selling some of my projects.

Advice & Tips: My experience with the counseling intern at school was great, and different than experiences I've had with therapy. She revealed to me yesterday that she was not a CBT therapist, which I've only had in the past. She said she was more psycho-dynamic I think. She focuses more on symbols and awareness, and made my life make more sense and more meaningful. I'm going to look more into this kind of therapy, since she was just a graduate student intern.

Advice & Tips: She wasn't very knowledgeable or understanding of my condition and wasn't happy unless I said what she wanted to hear. She didn't like it when I answered her questions correctly. She was always late arriving to her office by at least 20 minutes and didn't give me the full-hr that she billed the insurance for. Also even after asking her several times to help me with coping skills, she didn't. Wouldn't recommend!

Advice & Tips: I find that after awhile you have to depend on yourself and listen to your own advice and be your own therapist. Sometimes i wonder if I should go back to help get rid of some bad habits that Im finding blocked at being able to change and perhaps I will in the near future but as of now I read self help books and audio tapes and write in my journal and I find that works well.
