I understand that, you know, you don't wanna move forward with me as a counselor. That's definitely okay. I am always welcome to feedback on how you think I can improve and do better. But this process right now is to work on how we can move forward in finding you the best counselor for you and yourself. I have a few recommendations of counselors that I have worked with in the past that I definitely know are really good at what they do. I can pass on this information onto you. And if you want, you can always definitely go through your insurance as well and give them a call and they can connect you with some other counselors that you feel may be a better fit. I appreciate your time and your energy and I wish you luck moving forward.
