I have considered switching clinics. I am happy with my decision and think I handled it right. I did not report the therapist to his supervisor and will talk to him personally. We'll see what happens when I see him again in 2 weeks.
Good news indeed.
When do you begin seeing this new therapist?
Does she specialize in PTSD or trauma-related issues?
I tend to view this as the first time in 9 years you decided to look out for you;through proper channels and all.
You should be pleased with yourself for the move forward suggests growth and a desire for more out of life.
One thing's not quite clear; are you going to see both therapists?
