The Heritage Counseling Associates Review

I am an adult woman and have had sleeping problems for several years, perhaps stemming from PTSD and/or depression. Sleep doctors did not help me with my problem, so my general physican recommended I try a psychiatrist. I had heard some negative things about psychitrists and psychiatric medications, but believed the time had come when I didn’t have much to lose. | I was referred to Dr. Claude McCoy in Edmonds by my insurance company (not to be confused with Dr. Robert McCoy, who also works in Edmonds). I should have known this would be a wacky appointment when the first things I saw upon entering the office were several Precious Moments Christian figurines. | The doctor, an older male, told me that Jesus is like “a wrapped present under my Christmas tree,” and all I needed was to “unwrap it” in order to end my sleep problems. He also said that I’m living a “riddle” that I can only solve with Jesus. | He called me “adorable,” “cutie” and “sister” several times, and recited several Bible verses. I replied that I don’t object to sprituality, but I don’t want to substitute it for standard medical options. | He asked me about my life between ages 6 and 8. He said that what happens before 6 doesn’t leave lasting impact, and one’s personality is fully formed at 8. He also asked me what I think about gay people and I said I’m friends with some, and he rolled his eyes and said that’s part of my problem. I endured all this for a much longer period than I want to admit (about an hour), because I assumed that the medical treatment was forthcoming. Alas, he concluded the appointment saying I needed Jesus, not medical options. He wanted to make another appointment with me to discuss Jesus more. I passed. | I looked up this guy with the state licensing board, and it appears he’s had no complaints that stuck. He billed my insurance company $375 for what amounted to a religious sermon. I suppose, however, that I’m somewhat lucky since it seems that he may have been trying to sexually groom and/or negatively manipulate me, and I wasn’t phychologically compromised enough to make that easy. I don’t know if other female patients have been as lucky. I would recommend that patients, especially women, avoid this doctor.
