I suppose it is a combo of CBT with psychodynamic. Aside from the rational thinking, we analyze dreams and talk about my childhood and neglectful parents. It isn't pure rational "here and now" thinking.

And no, I am not on medication, which has been hard I think. I think I would have made quicker progress had I been on medication, but I just didn't want all of the side effects or the expense or having to take medication everyday. I gave myself a time frame too. If after a year I didn't think I made much progress, then I would try medication.

As for my husband, our relationship improved immensly once I got my depression and anxiety under control. He also made major changes by the way, but we never went to couples counseling. But he saw how much I had hit rock bottom and knew he had to change right along with me. My T said a lot of times marriages fall apart when one person goes into therapy because the relationship more often than not depends on the disfunction of one person or the other. Luckily, my marriage got stronger the more I got better.
