My mother sent me to a lady working out of a church, she was neither licensed nor trained, it was the opposite if helpful.

I've had about 8 over the last decade and it took a while to find one I really felt could help me. My therapist now is amazing and I'm so glad I didn't give up and just call it quits after seeing a few who were largely not helpful

It sounds like the person you saw wasn't very professional --- I had the same experiences, so I kept trying until I found someone great!
