I AM WRITING THIS AS A WARNING! DO NOT SEE THIS WOMAN. SHE IS DANGEROUS AND DROVE ME TO THE BRINK OF SUICIDE.
I know 2 other people who have had the horror of having this incompetent quack treat them also. I have to say, their experience was much worse than mine, something I would have never thought possible.
Ms Hemmele should NOT BE ALLOWED TO TREAT ANYONE WITH ANY TYPE OF MENTAL OR EMOTIONAL ISSUES!
She does NOT listen, is extremely bias, does NOT understand addiction- I was treated as if I was a SINNER, almost as if I was a criminal! Then she blathered a bunch of nonsense, compared my addiction and post trammatic stress issues with ONE OF HER OTHER CLIENTS, then she casually used his name calling him "JOHN", as she continued to divulge the client's PERSONAL STRUGGLES as she then informed me that she was giving me the "exact same advice" she gave "John". HELLO? HIPAA ARE YOU OUT THERE? Talk about violation! I just sat there in  her over hot office spattered with lighthouses and bible scripture as I sat there staring at her in disbelief listing to her chatter on about how God and faith, I think she even invited me to attend her church? Something about a addicts group I could sign up for so I could "meet other drug addicts" who could help me with my relationship with Jesus. Oh, yes, I was praying already- Praying for this torture to end so I could get far away from this nightmare before I lost it and slapped her in her pudgy puddin' face! I literally had to sit on my hands as she used up my time talking endlessly patronizing me with exaggerated expressions of pity that contorted her face like a Halloween mask from a bad B horror flick. It was if she was doing this on purpose as a sick attempt of humiliating or insulting me. Almost sarcastic, or a kind of twisted mental game? I don't know, but I didn't feel comfortable nor did I find this obtuse woman sincere in any respect of the word. I hope they DO NOT let her treat children, I shudder at the mental trama she could cause.
Her conduct was unprofessional, insulting, damaging, and completely inappropriate. I left the office in a confused and extremely enraged. This spun me into a downward spiral of depression and suicidal distress. When I called the office to inform them that I never wanted Ms Hemmele to counsel me again, I was probed as to the reason but declined not wanting to re-open fresh wounds so soon. Informed them that I did not want HER calling me or contacting me in the future. But about 2 hours later this MENTALLY DERANGED WACK called me anyway and would not let me off the phone! I had to hang up on her, but she kept calling back like a psychotic and obsessed stalker! FREAKED ME OUT! I was afraid to leave the house the next few days paranoid that she might be waiting outside to accost me- Ridiculous over active paranoid imagination, at least I hoped I was imagining! (laughs)
I only wrote this to inform others of my experience. And to think that my visit was nothing compared to the other clients of hers I have met. I will let them tell their stories if they want to share, not my place to speak for them.
