Kathryn was chosen for me based on my issues and concerns and the fact that I am a 69 year old lesbian in a very new relationship after 30 yers of being celibate.
Kathryn was very attentive to me esp when I was having difficulty giving her info about me re: my issues and new relationship problems. Kathryn complimented me on my ability to sum up my hx of lesbianism in past and all the problematic relationships I was in. She gave me insight into why these relationships possibly did
not work out causing them to end. In addition, she gave me some good info to use
when I felt like I was going to go off on the deep end and how to handle my new partners fear and mistrust based on perceived sabotaging on my part. The tables have quickly turned to her sabotaging out of her own fears and now we are struggling to stay together. There is a lot of blame at present and I am having a heard time keeping present. I feel sure Kathryn will lead me in the right direction and I would like to keep seeing hr for awhile to help me with these issues. She gets me and gets right to the point!
Kathryn is a very professional understanding person who is trying to help me in the best manner possible at this point in my life
