Sorry to read your post GG. I know you are going through a hard time as it is, so having your therapy time in flux, just makes everything else harder to deal with. As Dinah would say, one of the legs of the stool is missing.

For me, going 2x per week was extremely helpful. In November, I switched to 3x and I like that even better. It may help you to bring less week to week stuff into your sessions and more of the "feeling" stuff he was referring to. BUT ... having said that, you probably don't feel like seeing him more often when you are disappointed in how he treated you today.

I don't understand why he can't treat you if your depression is medical ... that doesn't make much sense to me. Wouldn't the therapy help resolve the underlying causes of the depression, and the meds help with the "medical" aspects of depression?

Right now, I also feel my safe place with my T is shaken. I'm very much invested into this process, so I am willing to figure this out with her. But I don't feel like going. I understand the feeling of wanting to cancel your next few sessions. Try to go and tell him what you told us. I know for me, it wasn't resolved after one session. Darn it! It's worth trying to figure out what is going on.

Thinking of you and sending you a low fat mocha w/carmel ... you know, something from Starbucks!!
A vente!! and I'll treat too. Get some coffee cake while you're at it. And, take a deep breath. Can you smell the GREEN? It's spring in the midwest. Yippee Yee Dee!!
