Q: I went to a trauma specialist 3 days ago for the first time. How can I report her to the board ?
She caused me further trauma. The patient before me had a severe panic attack, her first visit, that required 911 to come. This psychologist discussed her personal experience, her younger brothers death , her physical pain from being disabled, her recent hospitalization. She was agressive, and deeply upset me. I'm a ICU RN. I know she was clinically unfit. I'm going to need therapy from her session. I don't want others to go through this. She has no reviews, probably erases them.
A: You look up who licenses her but as an RN you know that those items are rarely covered. Look for a good trauma therapist who does EMDR--it's a process that is not lengthy, doesn't require meds. Find EMDR practitioners through googling "Psychology today EMDR ____________________"(name of your city or general area)
