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.
