Dr. E is a great listener, she is able to rephrase what I communicated in a way that helps me to further crystallize my thoughts. Also she has a very consistent soft nurturing tone that helps me relax and sometimes cry if I need to. I also have tasked her with sending me supplemental reading and resources which she has been able to do effectively. I like that she doesn’t take any her own personal experiences unlike a prior therapist. And I like that she is careful and considerate even when I am not doing so great and may be moody or easily irritated or arrogantly diverting the topic etc. She did a session with my partner and I which to my estimation required an extremely skilled therapist. She is very good. And I have been quitting with her for about 9 months. Despite the nature of BPD individuals (such as myself), to get too close then push away… I didn’t dump her which is really a great mark in her part because she does still try to help my see things more clearly and keep me engaged. Rather than just affirming everything in say and like simplifying my issues. She stays in with me and I appreciate her genuinely for that.
