Since I belong to a profession that also gets a bad rap because of a few nut cases (OK, maybe not so few), I understand the frustration.  We’re all judged by the actions of the least competent in our ranks.  Because it suggests intelligence and guts, my guess is it’s only the top grade contractors who seek the help of a therapist.  The rest just don’t bother show up.
