That's very encouraging. Flexibility is my number one therapist requirement. My therapist's main work right now is shorter term CBT, since that's mainly what insurance companies like to cover. But he's modified his approach for me. I think it's more attachment theory, with some self psychology thrown in. Although he also quotes Jung from time to time, and has tried to do some Gestalt techniques (I refused of course). I really ought to ask him... I think he used to treat patients that were similar to me years ago, when he first started. And he's darned good at it most of the time. And getting better and better.

So hopefully she'll have had enough exposure to other models of therapy to at the very least soften the CBT educational approach. Maybe she'll even enjoy the challenge and the change from the same old same old.
