Straight from the beginning I noticed that her telepathy with the only thing keeping her from being entirely useless. As a counselor she appears to have only a (at best) superficial knowledge of psychiatry and for an empath she isn’t very empathetic for there are plenty of times she completely fails to understand basic human emotion and action. Plenty of times her moral grandstanding seems to obscure any cognitive function she has. And then along comes the episode “The Loss” where she loses her powers causing her to have a mental breakdown showing us exactly who she really is. Her entire self-worth revolves around her (limited) telepathic ability and she sees humans without it as lesser beings. The episode reveals that she’s bigoted, has no introspection what so ever and overly relies on her ability to the point where she felt unable to perform her duties as a counselor, which doesn’t require telepathy… Personally I’d prefer a psychiatrist that couldn’t read my emotions just to inform me that I needed to figure it out on my own. Seriously though, most of the time she just points out the obvious! “Hmm… that mean looking alien over there with the battle axe wants to behead you.” Thanks Doc!
