Really sorry to have to say this, as I had high Hope's given her supposed expertise in childhood PTSD- if you think you are the medical text book perfect case study, she might be able to help you. She seemed to regard her diagnosis and psychiatry textbooks-- as well as Google search-- to be the Holy Bible. Unfortunately, she lacked the cognitive ability to, and possibly also all interest in, integrate into her thinking the words I uttered. She insisted on getting 15-yr-old records; I felt like she formed a comprehensive and not at all accurate opinion of Who-I-ever-possibly-could-be from those old records. She constantly jumped to demeaning and erroneous conclusions about me. When presented with fact and her error, she argued incessantly! It was crazy! A trained psycholinguist and pastoral counselor myself, I was shocked. She lacks the cognitive skills to engage in effective therapy. I really feel sorry for her. And she put me on this snake oil mega vitamin D dose, which, after six weeks, made me quite I'll for over 10 days.
Walking into therapy nearly 2 years ago, I had a couple of big fears: 1) identifying as a weak person; 2) being told I required anti-depressants. If it weren’t for Dr. Kinkead’s disposition, empathy, compassion, style, I might not have stayed the course because of these fears. When we first met, however, she spent hours intently listening to me and listening to how I ticked. She was genuine. I spent multiple hours trying to navigate through this healing process. I was also given an anti-depressant. My ultimate goals at the onset of therapy was having an end-date to therapy, and having no need for anti-depressants-this was how I viewed my success. I swear, I thought I was going to get a certificate of graduation, or something similar, be drug free, navigating through the world happy and grounded! In the beginning, I truly felt I was a weak person for needing all this support. Today, however, I’ve realized how important the “whole” of therapy is to my health (psychiatry and anti-depressants). I don’t have the fears I once had. I have accepted the “whole” of therapy because I have been successful; I am successful. As the lessons continue, I continue to evolve in a grounded space. I give thanks to the pocket full of tools and advice I’ve received. I am incredibly appreciative of all the effort and work we did together. This is a lifelong commitment; this I accept.
Dr. Kinkead is a really exceptional doctor and therapist. My life has changed pretty dramatically since beginning therapy. I have gained tools, knowledge, self understanding/acceptance/compassion/empowerment, and healing. This is medicine at it's best!
