This is my worst nightmare, so I can certainly understand.

I hope it's at least some consolation that you are clearly better off without this person (as she turned out to be) as your therapist. Hopefully this will alert her supervisor that her internship needs to be extended, and she needs to get a lot more guidance before she is allowed to practice without supervision.

What I really can't quite understand though, is why the agency that allowed this very harmful thing to happen through their intern program didn't step up and offer you someone to help process this. That seems truly unthinkable. If an agency is training therapists and allows harm to come to a client through it, is it any different than a trainee doctor at a training hospital making an error? You don't send the patient out the door with a handful of other hospital names. Someone in charge tries to mitigate the damage.

I'd call the supervisor again, or the agency head.
