I’ve been going through a tough phase at work and health wise and I’d taken an Leave of absence and I’ve been working with my therapist to deal with it. Everything was going okay up until my therapist lost her cool and yelled at me and called me names for wanting to extend my leave. She spent half an hour of the session just name calling and yelling at me and I’ve been pretty disturbed since then. Whatever her reasons may be, I do believe that her behavior was completely unprofessional
