Thank you everyone for the supportive messages.. I was really worked up when I wrote that post. I know what you all said it correct... she is doing the absolute best thing for me. But it still hurt a lot at the time, and still does some. I just want someone to stay put.

I did go see her this afternoon. It went well. I felt like I did connect with her today.. even though it may be pointless now anyway. She was very easy to talk to and really seemed to get things before I even said them. She gave me the option of staying with her or not. If I stay, she said she can only see me once a week.. but she made it very clear that she isnt trying to get me to leave, she just doesnt want to disappoint me later by not being able to give what I need. The other option is see someone else. There is a woman at her center who she said is wonderful and who could see me twice a week. She tried to introduce us today, but she was in a session.. so I'm going to probably schedule a session with this woman next week just to test it out. But I have 2 concens. One is that this woman only works 2 days a week, so I'd be seeing her 2 days in a row, rather than spread through the week. I think sessions a few days apart might be more helpful, but I dont know. There's also benefits (continuity) to appointments in a row like that. The second concern is greater for me. She's not licensed. In fact, no one at this center, except for Ginny, has their license. Theyre all working towards it currently, and Ginny is doing supervision for them. I'm concerned that a brand new therapist who doesnt have a lot of experience wouldnt be the best for me. But Ginny said that if her family needed therapy, she'd send them to this woman. So I dont know. I guess it's worth meeting her once.

But Ginny is obviously very good. I like her a lot. All I've ever done is once a week previously, so maybe I could keep seeing her once a week... but is that the best? I dont know.

I'm seeing Laurie tomorrow so I'm sure I'll talk to her about it. Also seeing Ginny next Tues so hopefully things will be figured out then. It just stinks that this keeps happening.

Thank you everyone. You all are the best.
