She seemed nicer on the phone than biofeedback guy.

*That's a good sign. I remember your posts about that guy. You gave him more than a fair chance. I'd say everything that went wrong there was on his part, not on your behalf. So, that was a unique situation indeed.

Just because you've had a few bad experiences, it doesn't mean this one won't work out. And keep in mind that not all of your mental health professionals haven't worked out... You do have a therapist who is almost perfect :) I'm sure that she won't put too much stock into what your therapist tells her. She is a therapist and they do tend to have open minds. If she doesn't, I highly doubt you'd want to see her anyway.

And of course you are going to have jitters. Everyone does, especially if your current therapist speaks with a potential new one first. I'd be tempted to start my first appointment with an interrogation similar to, "OK, so what did he tell you?" Then I'd find some way to make up excuses and explainations for every single action or behavior she described. I guess that says a lot about me...
