My therapist is a psychoanalyst and has been in practice for 30 years. Yes this is traditional even these days in the Chicago area. I see him twice per week now, but he wants to add another day plus use the couch, and I am resisting that for now. Feels too threatening. So, he is already setting aside two times per week for me and later three. He would prefer four, but I can't afford that plus I really can't be taking that much time off from work.

Right now I go for appointments at 6:45 a.m. which means I have to catch the Metra train at 5:28 a.m. and ultimately end up getting to work at 9:00 a.m. So not bad, but I tend to be a night person as you can see, and so getting up at 4:15 a.m. there have been times I overslept and missed the train and had to go like crazy down the tollway toward Chicago. One time there was an accident, and I ended up being 30 minutes late. So I went all that way for a 15 minute session. I was not happy, but he has someone right after me, etc.

He is very experienced with eating disorders and sexual abuse issues. Eating disorder is not an issue so much anymore. Well that's not true, but not in the same way as when I was in high school and college and even after I started graduate school.

Otherwise, no he doesn't pay me when he is gone which was the case last Friday and will be the case this Friday.
