Could it be in the big city areas that they have gone to 45 minutes. I don't know. I am in the Chicago area and both persons I have seen have 45 minutes appointments.

On the other hand, the ECT doc I saw, when I went back to see him to talk about what was happening with me since the ECT, I was scheduled for a 50-60 hour appointment (per the University scheduling), and we ended up one time chatting away for two hours. This was not therapy, though. I had actually thought of going to him for therapy when I decided to leave my last therapist. But he said no to me. He said he views me as a colleague too much to be able to work with me in therapy. But, I am better off with who I have anyway even if I only get 45 minutes.

At Menninger's sessions were 50 minutes, but since I had not seen anyone for 10 years when I went back to see my last T, I had no idea that things had changed to 45 minutes. I don't like it, though.
