Erika Schmidt, LCSW -freshening long term therapy

Posted by Dinah on February 22, 2004, at 9:29:12

Well, if we only get one answer, I'd prefer that the other question get the answer. :) But I also have a personal question. I am in long term therapy (going on nine years), and am quite happy with it, and have no intention of moving to another therapist. I consider therapy and mood stabilizing medication to be an ongoing part of my treatment, like insulin to a diabetic. And in addition, there is slow but steady growth in that my mood is more stable for longer periods of time with fewer and briefer meltdowns.

But sometimes I feel a bit envious of people who are getting new insights and ideas of what direction to take. Not that there isn't a certain advantage to familiarity. I *like* that my therapist could answer the questions for me on a recent evaluation test we were looking over. He knows just about everything there is to know about me, therapy wise.

Is there any way to combine the advantages? Do you have any ideas about how to inject new ideas and insight into long term therapy?

Thank you again.
