I haven't posted in quite sometime - going through a divorce (which I wanted).

Anyway, I am in analysis and go 3x per week. Some months I cut back to twice a week (depending upon expenses). I did lie on a couch for a few years too - but I found I couldn't hold onto my therapist (if that makes sense). It was her idea for my to try lying down and then it was her suggestion to sit back up. She sensed too that I was going further and further away instead of towards. I needed to see her face, body language ... who knows.

I LOVE IT as much as it is difficult. She is a rock in my life. Some people, like myself, grow up with parents that are completely self-absorbed and spend little to zero time with their children. I needed stability and guidance - and that I found with my therapist. I am not ashamed. I am well educated, a professional and happy that my insurance covers "some" of the cost for me.

I agree that personal fit is important. Very much so.
