Dr. Slebodnik was the therapist of a close friend of mine; a transman with bipolar disorder.. He showed up one day for therapy to find that she was not there and would no longer be seeing him. My friend resorted to suicide in December. We later found out that Dr. Slebodnik had recently lost a family member to issues related to bipolar disorder, and seeing my friend in therapy was too emotionally difficult for her. While I understand she had her own personal issues to deal with, I am furious she abandoned my friend's treatment so abruptly, and with no attempt to connect him with a different provider. If you have bipolar disorder or suicidal ideation, do not seek this provider. I honestly wouldn't recommend her even if you don't.
(Full disclosure: I have never been a patient of Dr. Slebodnik.)
