Thanks for sharing and asking an important and hard question. Sometimes it is good to switch treatment providers. I have had patients whom did not work well with me, due to style, approaches, and differences. I would suggest asking lots of questions. I would also suggest being open to feedback particularly as you progress through treatment and diagnosis may shift. Some schools of thought in psych say most depression and anxiety is driven by personality issues. Be mindful that diagnosis can differ in terms of severity as your aunt may have more pronounced systems and you may not. Ask about DBT, dialect behavior therapy, as it is a gold standard for personality issues as well as suicidal tendencies.
