Hello Fi

You may still possibly run into a CBT therapist who is anti-medication, but in my experience they are not all that way. Before scheduling an appointment, perhaps you could do a "phone screening" with the therapist to see if you click together and ask how s/he feels about CBT as an augment to medication therapy? Or some clinics these days even have brochures, etc, other written "propaganda" that outlines their treatment techniques in general terms. Before you spend your time and money in a visit with the therapist, and put yourself in the possible situation of encountering an anti-med therapist, maybe the staff will be willing to give you enough information for you to be able to tell. My own experiences with contemporary clinics in my area is that they actually do marketing based on their treatment programs, and you'll be able to tell if they are pro, neutral, or anti-med by their "recruiting" materials. But that may not be true where you live.

You're very welcome, and I hope you have a good experience, and learn some new skills for your "toolkit"!!!

Best wishes,
bozeman
