My therapist is quite pricey too---$125 for 50 mins, but I would not trade him for the world. He and my psychiatrist get together every other week or so to discuss mutual patients. My therapist also calls my doc if he senses that I am having problems with meds and has checked on me at home and work if things are kinda weird. As I had told Dr. Bob once before when asking for advice--if it weren't for my 'team' as they call themselves I wouldn't be here to type this.

As for feeling good everytime you come out of a session----I don't think you are getting your money's worth if you do. I mean, come on, we are all good actor's and can pretend we are feeling great when we are actually feeling like midnight has set in----it takes a good therapist to get past that darkness into the ugly stuff, and that hurts worse but is necessary.

Sorry for babbling........


> My fiancee's psychiatrist is also rather pricey, and without insurance, the talk therapy seem disproportionately expensive but the woman is a damn genius with the meds. She refuses to work with another therapist and supply only the pharmaceuticals. May I assume this is a rather standard practice at her level of training or is this unusual. We highly value her expertise, but this is an unisured expense and between the meds and twice-monthly sessions we are spending a huge sum. A former therapist is willing to work with my fiancee, and they enjoy a great rapport, but the doctor is resolute in being the exclusive resource for meds and therapy. Any suggestions on how to approach the issue with the psychiatrist?
