Smith frequently missed appointments, and I was driving in from out of town. I was seeing him because I was trying to cope with the death of my father, but the fact that I routinely wound up staring at the locked door of his office just served to worsen my mental state, rubbing salt into the abandonment issues I was dealing with. If you're a professional and going to take even a little responsibility for the mental health of others, at least show up. I eventually just stopped going. I have never been able to bring myself to see another mental health professional after this experience.
