Amnesia, Art, Healing


(Note: This is a cover page. The entire complaint is approximately twenty five pages long. If you are someone who might benefit from seeing the entire complaint please contact me. I'm still debating whether or not to post the whole thing.)


I am filing this complaint against Eileen XXX LMFT, license #XXXXX. I began seeing Eileen XXX in February 2013 and terminated with her on April 22, 2015. 

The therapy was rife with incompetence, unprofessionalism, harmful disclosures and a profound lack of thoughtful boundaries. I remained in treatment with this therapist for over two years as I was vulnerable, attached, confused and simply did not know better. Eventually, however, I came to see that that the treatment was making me worse and not better. And after seeking three consults with outside therapists, I terminated in one session. 

I went into treatment to gain clarity and health and wound up enmeshed with a therapist who confused and complicated my existing trauma while simultaneously causing new trauma on top of it.

I am filing this complaint over two years post-termination as it has taken me this long to finally be able to declare that what happened to me was damaging and wrong. 

The journey to get here has been enormously complicated and painful. It is a journey that I will never forget and an experience that will impact me for the rest of my life.

My goal is to daylight this experience to the Board both for my own mental health as well as to hopefully prevent this from happening to others in the future.

I am attaching the specifics of my complaint along with supporting documentation in a document called: XX_Complaint.

More documentation is available if required.  

I can be reached at XXX-XXX-XXXX and/or X@X.COM to discuss any details of my complaint.
