I thought seeing a therapist was supposed to help not traumatize. My therapist was mediocre but they were better than nothing. I have had terrible luck with therapists so it’s super hard for me to mesh with most and it’s virtually impossible to trust one.
I’ve had a couple of shady therapists prior to the one that unceremoniously dropped me as a client, so I’m starting to think maybe I’m the problem. I don’t seem to know how to stop obsessing about how badly I was treated by this insufferable woman who wore club dresses and cheap heels and talked about her own problems on my dime.
But I am pissed. She was incredibly rude and dismissive and thin skinned because I asked her what the value of telling me so many stories drawn from her personal history that rarely seemed applicable or useful to me. It’s been bugging me since it happened and it’s really making me feel like crap.
About ten minutes before my session she called and said she couldn’t have me as a client anymore but she could help me look for some numbers. Never mind she was in an office with other providers who were still practicing. She basically left me hanging and had the nerve to charge me for the session that she cancelled! I’m just really needing to vent. I am not the best client personality wise. I’m moody and I don’t like impractical hippie nonsense or mush mouth platitudes. But I am on time, my insurance reimburses providers in a timely fashion and I pay my co-pay in cash. I know what my issues are (anxiety, depression, ocd and autism) and I just want to find a decent therapist to help me. Also is there anything I do about this therapist just abandoning me without a referral or notice? Thank you for letting me vent.
