Put my life in danger

Dr. Nevedal is by far the worst therapist I’ve ever had. She straight up put my life in danger. The last time I saw her, and almost the last time I saw anyone at all, I had told her I had a plan to attempt suicide, had written a note, and had intent on carrying it out, and I came to session with my bags packed to go to the hospital. We called the hospital during session and they said they’d get back to me later, and she LET ME GO HOME. Then, when the hospital called back and said they wouldn’t take me, I got very upset and frantically tried calling her multiple times, pressing the button for emergency, and leaving frantic voicemails. She didn’t respond until around 3 hours later. I was already in the hospital dying. I ended up spending 10 days in the ICU, 7 of which I was in a coma for. While I take responsibility for my actions in that I am the one that decided to attempt, she absolutely broke the law and put my life in danger. Legally, she was obligated to make sure I was safe, especially given what I had told her, and yet...Then when she finally did call me, she left voicemails saying that she “couldn’t be my therapist anymore if I am just going to tell her I want to die and then disappear.” Sorry, I was busy dying. This event was atrocious enough, and I have been toying since it happened about filing a lawsuit or a professional complaint against her, after finding these reviews and seeing how incompetent she is, it pushes me more to do so. I only saw her for 7 sessions in total, but all of them were awful. She would berate me for not doing exactly what was asked of me, would barely let me get a word in during sessions, forced me to do things that I was very uncomfortable with and tried to voice that. Including, she took me into a private bathroom with her and locked the door behind us, so that I could splash cold water on my face to “calm down.” I had to fake calm down because inside my trauma history was being activated and I couldn’t deal with that situation. That was in the 2nd session I ever had with her. She seriously should not have a license to practice.

Arrogant

She comes across as arrogant and has a low frustration tolerance. She seems to have this complex of needing to be right all the time because she is the "expert". The patient is in fact the expert and it's up to the therapist to guide them through self-exploration.

Two Stars

I felt like it was her time more than my time during my sessions with Dr. Nevedal. She spent the majority of the sessions doing the talking, making me feel uncomfortable trying to squeeze a word in or sharing what I felt was important or wanted to talk about. Went to a male therapist after a year with Dr. Nevedal and felt 1 or 2 sessions with him were more helpful than the year I spent with Dr. Nevedal.

Professional

I decided to see what reviews Dr. Nevedal had. I'm glad I waited until after I had a session with her before I read them. I know that everyone is entitled to their opinions, even as negative as they may be. I am glad that I have her as my therapist. I feel that I have good judgement on people and Dr. Nevedal is professional, and caring. I don't feel that any of the negative reviews that I read were accurate ie: continuing with her for over a year and just now realizing that she wasn't a fit for them, wouldn't you know that right away or soon after meeting with her? The wait time in her office is minimal. When I left a vm she returned my call that same day. I highly recommend Dr. Nevedal. Figure out your own opinion of her by meeting with her. Don't let someone else's opinion fog your own judgment.

Difficult to work with

If you want to spend your time in your session arguing, debating, being judged, talked over, this is your counselor. Tried for a year and now have to start over. Do yourself a favor and just start with someone else.
