He accepted me on the sliding scale, but I often felt like he didn't take me seriously because of it. We never started on time and we always ended early. I was supposed to get 45minutes, but I would be lucky if I got 30; I usually got 20-25.
He may be knowledgable in his field, but his implimentation of his knowledge is subpar. At the beginning, when I first began seeing him, he stated that I was in control of where we went during our sessions, but it didn't take long for him to renig on that statement and rob me of all control. He often asked me questions and then refused to believe my answers; made claims that he knew things vastly outside of his profession (controversial claims that contradicted facts and opinions brought forth by other professionals in the actual field being discussed); attempted to create more paranoia between my other healthcare providers and myself instead of trying to dissipate any pre-existing apprehension; and belittled me for using intellecutal vocabulary that most people choose not to use.
He never took notes during any of the sessions. He frequently would say one thing (or suggest a course of action) at one appointment and then adamently deny ever having said it at the very next appointment. If he was ever called out on this, he would attempt to verbally tap dance around it, quickly change the subject, accuse me of lying, or suggest that I was unjustly projecting built up hostility upon him.
There were a couple of sessions where we barely even talked about things going on in my life; he rattled on about things going on in his life. (Which brings me to another important item..)
He is very unprofessional when it comes to other people's situations and general privacy. He often talked about other clients (not by name, but in inappropriate detail), court cases that he was currently involved in, and past clients.
In the end, he caused a great deal more damage than an healing that may have occurred. I would recommend that you save your money and look elsewhere.
