Having a hard time finding a therapist

Talk therapy can help but at times less cognitive treatments are required. Anything related to ANY form of therapy goes here.

Having a hard time finding a therapist

Post by AMA210 » Fri Mar 17, 2017 2:17 am

Absolutely do not want to return to previous therapist.
Having a hard time finding someone who takes my insurance.

Do I absolutely need therapy now?
I feel that the limerance is leveling off a bit now and I am not getting the euphoric high anymore.

Thanks.

I found someone who deals with OCD, addiction and codependency.

The previous therapist is of no help to me.
Her suggestion to "depersonalize" CK was to write his name 100x on a piece of paper. Hmmm, no thanks. :-s
Not sure exactly which therapy category this falls into.
She gave me a handout on dealing with emotions and different situation outcomes, and then said "I havent read this yet."

I am hoping that this new person will be better. They also offer group sessions.

"I found someone who deals with OCD, addiction and codependency."

Glad to hear. As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, it made a big difference for me, when my T suggestsd another T who specializes in addiction. New approach was much different. I'd take advantage of the group sessions in addition to individual counseling. I haven't done that before, but I really think you might find these to be very beneficial.

Here's a workbook I've found helpful.
