      Thank you for your comment Marie.
      Very offensive! I would run away from this person, fast. Not helpful, let a lone mature.

    I was new to the ‘therapy business’ and a female therapist at our county mental health center said to me, “I think you have multiple personality disorder and it just so happens I’m writing a book about that and would really like to include your story!” Keep in mind I’d only seen her about three times! A couple of weeks later I’m at work and the radio is on and I hear she’s just been arrested for having lesbian relationships with her clients and embezzling.

      Wow! She obviously had a serious problem she thought was well out of reach of the naked eye. Sadly, a lot of therapists enter the field because they themselves are struggling with things. The idea is that “I can help people because I too have struggles.” While this is good in some cases, the level of disturbance or intensity of that problem is what will determine if a therapist is mentally sound enough to offer any type of therapy. Hopefully she isn’t doing therapy today.

      Thanks for your comment!
