Well this is kind of funny. Overkill, maybe. I have a Pdoc and two therapists. My Pdoc is meds only (bi-monthly or monthly) but he likes to check in on how I'm doing. He focuses on my ability to function as well as possible in life--his goal is to make me feel GREAT, he says, and not just be surviving. I'll believe that when it happens.

T #2 is my EMDR therapist. Sometimes we just talk and don't do EMDR at all. She's o.k.; her view differs a little from other T, but I mostly use my time w/her to let EMDR open up my emotions.

T #1 leads all of the others. She is in total control. I defer to her because she knows me best. She always "reframes" what the others said, based on what she knows about me.

The other difference is that I'm only attached and emotionally invested w/T#1. I don't need any more complications in my life.

Actually, this is all working out quite well. Expensive, but it's going well.
