Re: Could two therapists work?

I have two therapists, each of whom I see weekly. My p-doc I have seen in psychodynamic therapy for four years. He also does prescribing. For the past year, I have also seen a woman social worker who specializes in DBT/CBT. They are in touch when they need to be and each regularly checks in with me about what's going on with the other.

At this point, I feel that most of the work of therapy has been transferred to the social worker. I still see my p-doc weekly because I've had a lot of complicated medication issues and because, to be honest, I can't bear the thought of not seeing him. I've had powerful transference issues with him since the beginning. But I notice him easing himself out. When I bring up an issue, he'll say, that's something you can work on with (the social worker).

So it can work, but I think it has to happen organically.
