This is a transcript of recorded session notes as provided by QualTran, the very best in therapy notes transcription.

Greg Salinger, MHC, recording session notes for intake of one Wilson, Wade and subsequent counseling session.

I disclose that the client and I shared a prior working relationship. While I have been instructed by S.H.I.E.L.D. to keep the details of this relationship undisclosed, I have been granted permission to refer to it as “freelance problem solving.”

Given our possible multiple roles relationship, I consulted with another therapist on the matter, one Timothy Stevens. He insisted I could not see Dea—err—the client, Mr. Wilson. That there was no ethical justification. S.H.I.E.L.D. however reassured me that I have special status and need not worry about the ethical code most therapists are bound by.

I also should say Wilson has no idea of who I am. I am just his new therapist as far as he is aware.

In session, the client goes on and on and on. So self-involved. He didn’t even acknowledge the dissolution of the business enterprise he shared with myself and several others. He’s moved on to freelance with others and acts as though there was no such freelance problem solving prior.

The client does genuinely seem to have moment he wants to do good. Deadp—Wilson, however, does things—things that have nothing to do with the voices in his head—that make doing good almost impossible. I can relate. But I’m better now.

Can he better though? I don’t know. He’s pretty messed up. And selfish. He never treated my colleagues and I really well. And I can’t do the same kind of therapy I’ve done with other clients because S.H.I.E.L.D. says he can’t know who I am. Oh and Timothy Stevens says he’s beyond help without an intensive in-patient program and an array of psychiatric meds.

But, then again, what the hell does Stevens know? He keeps telling me not to call him and, I think, is pretty disrespectful towards me despite us being colleagues. If he does that with his clients, I bet he never helps anyone.

So maybe I can help Wilson. Maybe he just needed a therapist like me. After all, I helped myself.

Yeah…yeah…I bet it’ll be easy!

Apparently S.H.I.E.L.D. recommends I talk to Doctors Max Bemis and Dalibor Talajic abut the client. See that conversation in file FOOLKILLER #4, to be transcribed by February 8.
