Since I don't know any of you personally, I'll share this:

The two times in my life when I needed someone to talk to (one unexpected divorce that blind-sided my life & dealing with the untimely death of my best girlfriend of 20+ years) I used a woman who has a Christian-based therapy practice. She never ONCE mentioned "God" to me, but she totally held ME accountable for getting through my crisis periods and getting ON with my life.

When I've talked to others about their therapy experiences, almost ALL of them went to the same person for years and years and were really not held accountable for the chitty things that had happened to them in Life, some of which clearly were their own doing through the dumb, emotionally-based decisions they made.

Simply amazing to me, but it clearly shows you that:

a. There are some really bad therapists out there;

b. It's easy to milk money out of people if you keep on telling them "It's not YOUR fault, poor kitten!"

c. I was lucky and blessed to find someone decent to help me sort through things.

Buyer beware, I guess? LOL!
