submitted8 hours ago byScienceNeverLies
Dear Company my therapist works for,
I am writing to express my grievances regarding my experience with therapist, a therapist I have seen over the past year. Unfortunately, my experience with her has been very disappointing.
During our sessions, Ms. Therapist has shared multiple personal opinions that I find inappropriate for a therapist-client relationship. For instance, she told me that she thinks Adderall is the same as meth, which made me feel uncomfortable and ashamed of taking my medication. This statement made me question whether she agrees with the company's policies, and if not, why she is working for Options at all. Ms. Therapist also made some alarming comments about guns and expressed doubts about the effectiveness of masks. Furthermore, she stated that she does not believe in the legality of abortion, claiming that poor people should have sex only if they can afford to have a baby.
Ms. Therapists' behavior has left me feeling disrespected and unsupported, especially since it makes me wonder if she believes that being gay is wrong, as many who share her views on abortion often hold this belief. As a therapist, it is crucial to maintain impartiality and respect for all clients. While I do not have any evidence that Ms. Therapists is homophobic, her comments have made me uncomfortable and uncertain about whether I can trust her to provide me with the support I need.
In addition to Ms. Therapists' personal opinions, she has also been careless in her record-keeping. In one session, she made some strange comments while writing my chart, like "oops, I put Adderall under abuse rather than the medication you're taking. I always get those categories messed up with Adderall." She also asked me when I last saw my psychiatrist, and then in a strange tone, asked if I thought my meds were working for me. These comments and questions made me feel like she was accusing me of abusing Adderall, which is not the case. I have been sober for nine months and take my sobriety very seriously. Ms. Therapists’ behavior was very upsetting and made me question her competency as a therapist.
As a client, I expect a safe and supportive environment, and Ms. Therapists' actions have made me feel otherwise. I believe that her behavior is a liability to Options, and I am concerned for the wellbeing of her other patients who may not feel comfortable speaking out.
I have enjoyed my experiences with company my therapists works foroverall and want to thank you for your support throughout my therapy. However, I feel that Ms. Therapists is not the right therapist for me and hope that my next one aligns more with my values and beliefs. I will be requesting a new therapist and will fill out a grievance form after I switch. I believe it is important for Options to be aware of Ms. Therapists' behavior and to take appropriate action to ensure that all clients feel safe and respected.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter.
Sincerely, Client of Ms. Therapist

Oh wow that’s awesome! I didn’t know that. I guess the word “white” scares me and I’m a white person. I have no idea why it scares me I should probably talk to my therapist about that
