What kinds of talk therapy have you tried? There are many variations. Different therapists will have different biases. I went through the supposedly "proven" therapies (cognitive-behavioral and interpersonal) and eventually found that old-fashioned psychodynamic therapy really is the best thing for me.

You said meds gave you intolerable side effects. Which meds did you try, and at what doses? There are many different kinds, and rarely is an individual unable to tolerate *all* of them.

Regarding the web site you pointed to: I would caution you to avoid psychologists who advocate forming conclusions about the "cause" of mental diseases while remaining ignorant of their biology (or, indeed, who claim there is any single causative factor).
