I just called and spoke with the receptionist for the therapist I really want to see- yes, she is 24 miles away but what the heck. Anyway, the recept. asked several questions about why I was looking for therapy- what specific issues, then she said she'd have to call me back but she knew she couldn't get me an appointment before the 2nd week in Dec. The wait doesn't sound too bad to me, given that Thanksgiving is next week. But, I'm concerned that this therapist might not feel that the issues I gave the receptionist are enough for her to see me and I'm afraid she'll recommend someone newer and less in demand. Please cross fingers and send vibes that she'll see me....I really didn't want to get into the worse details on the phone with a receptionist.
