Candace, a woman in her 30's, talks to me about how she was introduced to therapy as a kid through twilight zone episodes and an emergency visit to the ER. We discuss what type of counselor she was looking for as an adult, what therapeutic approaches worked and which ones missed the mark. We dig into why she continued to choose the same type of therapist over and over again. She also talks about how uncomfortable she can feel when silent periods in counseling last too long.
Candace Opper's first book, "Certain and Impossible Events," investigates the cultural resonance of suicide in America through the lens of her obsession with the death of a boy she knew in middle school. Forthcoming from Kore Press in 2020.
