Couples Counseling

Therapist left the door open to the room

by Jennie
(Minneapolis, MN)

As I was talking about my personal details I realized the therapist left the door open to her waiting room, so her next client heard everything I was saying. Already her walls were paper thin. I could hear fighting in other rooms. Now the therapist who never said my name left the door open, so her client heard about my sex life. Some guy now knows about my sex life to boot. The door was open the entire session.

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
