Martin tells me he's going to "pad" his resume. He's sick of potential employers passing him over for jobs just because he isn't proficient in Excel or doesn't have the required number of years of experience. I don't like condoning it, but I do anyway, figuring it can't really hurt. After all, it's not like he, a lifelong file clerk, is applying for a position as a surgeon.

He cancels his next session the night before it's scheduled, without offering an explanation. That day, I get a call from a well-known Manhattan medical center, asking for a reference for "Dr. ____."
