It does not sound like it was in any way your fault. I cannot imagine a therapist talking the way you say she did, new or otherwise. Because I am in the same profession, I will never few such behavior as excusable. In my opinion it is easy for patients to accept blame. Don't. It is not your fault that she terminated you. In my opinion it is HER issue. When therapists behave this way, I get irate. My last therapist I had for the past two years tried to do this to me too, and I ended up doing ECT to please him so he would not get rid of me. I am so glad I got rid of him and now have someone really good. Some psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, etc. are very good; some are average; and some like all other professions are just not that good. It is most unfortunate in my opinion, however, when one is vulnerable and encounters a therapist who acts like a complete jerk. Sounds like you have already talked to someone who is horrified as well. That might be someone good to see. I missed my old therapist for a time as well even though he was getting angry with me about my complaints of memory problems after ECT. I decided I had to get rid of him for my own sanity, and so maybe if you could look at it that way, that for your own sanity you are better off not seeing this person anymore. I still miss my old therapist from time to time, but I have someone now for the past two months who is more qualified to deal with the issues that have come up than was my previous therapist.
