PSA – Look a gift horse in the mouth [update!]

Hi, all.

Quick update to my PSA – Look a gift horse in the mouth post. The same person contacted me again without realizing it. I now feel comfortable posting the false identity of the person. I held off on posting this because the notion of doxxing someone is terribly problematic to me. I know it’s just email, but… Anyway, here is the exchange.

And I got no reply. I just want anyone maintaining a coaching practice to see the email address.

Good luck,

  1. Thank you for posting this!!!! I received the exact same emails from “Steve.” I found your article after searching this particular person’s email when I began to think these emails were fishy. Thanks again!

  2. I have just received email from him also searching for a LMHC for four of his family members. Thank you so much for posting this because it seemed very fishy.
