Call back both the one who left a message and the secretary for the therapists he referred you to. Ask first if they even have an appointment available before Jan 1. If not, then move on to questions about insurance and what they recommend to facilitate getting a session or two paid for in the new year. If one of them does have an opening, that makes it easier; take it. It'll be OK. don't worry about whether your problem is "worthy;" I promise it is. Don't worry whether you can come up with a "trauma" or not; I once did a session with a man who had what he called "the nameless dread," just a feeling, no trauma that he could remember. He didn't really meet criteria for a "disorder" and he'd been to lots of therapists and doctors and no meds helped. He got referred to me as a last resort, he wasn't very hopeful and thought I was probably a sham artist. We did the procedure anyway and much to his surprise the dread went away. He never did recover any sort of traumatic memory or anything, although he did work through some problems that had been caused by the feeling. I saw his family doctor several months ago and he told me the man was doing well, no meds, working and engaged (hadn't worked or dated in about 7 years). So no problem is too vague or simple to work on. And let me reiterate: I myself was not the miracle worker here; in fact I didn't say more than a dozen words in the whole two hours; the healing came from within the patient and it persists.
