After a long struggle with our marriage and trying to persuade my husband to go together with me to a marriage counselor, he finally agreed, as a last attempt to save our marriage. Based on Linda Falkner's web page it ""seemed"" she was qualified and experienced to assist us. She returned my call 4 days after I left her a message and made an appointment for us promptly. During our FIRST session, she was FALLING ASLEEP. She wasn't hearing what we were saying; she kept asking us the same questions we'd already answered. At one point, after I showed obvious irritation, she excused herself to splash water in her face and get a cup of coffee as it was ""the time of day when she starts to fade and she felt she wasn't giving us 100%"". Meanwhile, my husband and I had ""opened up"" bringing some uncomfortable emotions to the surface - which she DID NOT ADDRESS.. She kept watching the clock making mention of her next appointment and when our time was up- we were left with raw emotions that were never addressed..
