It's weird; I'm not artistically inclined, per se, but I do like doing collage work when I can't access the words I need to discuss something. She was all over it! =) She also likes to have people do sand trays, but won't force it on people.

She's done a lot of work with PTSD, depression, DV, and DID. She's also presently listed as a Bay Area provider for Operation Comfort, which provides counseling for discharged Iraq war vets, which says a lot for her humanity. I have rapid-cycling unipolar depression only, but just the fact she deals with the "tough stuff" lessens the chances of her bailing on me(I hope, anyway). She's been in practice for over 12 years and her training is in the Jungian and psychodynamic approaches.

I showed her the termination letter, and further explained how I was terminated, and she was appalled. She could not believe that the intern's supervisor actually agreed to the termination in that fashion. She even remembered the supervisor's name, as she had taken a workshop from her some years ago.

That is a very sweet story about your first T and opera. It's like he's still with you via opera. =)

I definitely grilled the new T on background/training. I had talked with other T's on the phone, but she seemed like the best "match". I really hope it works out. All early indications are good. She even said that losing my ex-T is like losing a parent, and that it would take time to grieve. My ex-T was like a mom, so yeah...makes sense.
