  • Perceived effectiveness for Dysthymia: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Major Depressive Disorder: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 60 min Weekly
Advice & Tips: There are weeks that I have such a hard time going. I know I need to work through my issues, I KNOW my moods deteriorate horribly when I stop going, but some sessions are so painful and I feel like all I do is cry and feel even worse when I go home. Of course, after a few days of processing everything from the session, I usually see things in a better light, but it's like ripping off a huge bandaid on a very hairy arm, it just hurts that much in the moment. This is something that we actively monitor (my Psychologist and I) because the 'stopping going' is a known pattern of mine.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Suicidal thoughts or urges: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Advice & Tips: Though the financial burden of paying for therapy out of pocket sometimes gets in my way of feeling like I should keep going or deserve to keep going... I discuss this with my therapist and we hash out the pros and cons until I am no longer in confusion as to whether I should go or not go. I did stop suddenly for a month last May, 2010 right after my son deployed for Afghanistan. At the time I didn't make the connection but later when I agreed to come in and just talk about what was going on with me. I would not agree to come in on at a regular time. At the end of each weekly session I would decide if I was coming back the next week and then we'd find a day and time if I was. When I finally realized that this odd behavior began when my son left I understood that this was somehow the only way I could feel like I had any power over my life. Still, it was a good experience and I am glad I had the courage to follow my intuition. I am now back to going at a regular time every week and feel I have grown enourmously in the last year. That being said... I also feel I have no desire to leave therapy though if I did I would have money to spend on my kids, and a nice vacation somewhere. I fantasize about traveling a lot but I also am really paranoid about going away also. There are other things that I know I still need to work on before I quit therapy but at least I feel like I am working with a great therapist and my trust in her has grown and thus I guess my trust in myself is growing... small steps do lead somewhere.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Post-traumatic stress disorder: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Support mental / emotional health: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Suicidal thoughts or urges: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: 100 min Weekly
Advice & Tips: Laura is the most effective therapist I have had to date. I am indebted to her strength, compassion, insight, and professionalism through these years. The reason I put the "side effects" as moderate is because we both work very hard in our sessions together and I am almost always very tired afterwards and even though I can usually do a few errands after (though not always) I always come home exhausted mentally and emotionally and have to sleep for a couple of hours. I feel this is actually healthy processing time for me. The reason I put the burden at "VERY" is because of the financial burden. Instead of being able to go on anything but simple road trips to see family or friends or go camping, we do not have the money to have other luxuries like people we know have. We've never owned a car newer than two to three years old, don't frequent coffee shops, can't afford to give our kids material things that they might have enjoyed. On the plus side, I think this has made my kids resiliant, compassionate young men and has kept our family appreciative of the simple things in life. Love may not be all you need but it's a big part of what makes our world go round.

  • Burden: Very
Dosage: 100 min Weekly
Advice & Tips: Don't knock therapy because you haven't had success with it. For people with serious attachment issues, PTSD, major depression and even people who are bi-polar, I don't think there is a drug or other treatment that can do what psychotherapy can do.

  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: 60 min Monthly
Advice & Tips: I find myself strongly conflicted about my psychologist relationship to me. I am conflicted now about methodologies that he employed and whether or not his personal belief system influenced his rather non-attachment demeanor throughout the course of treatment. On the one hand I greatly respect his knowledge, but on the other his recommendations have continued to baffle and confuse me, as not once in my memory has he made a real referral for me to get help beyond just talk. He stated to me that we have tried everything and are going a different route, yet how could we have tried everything? He never once talked to me about diet, exercise, or made mention of programs that may help. Comments that were made to me like 'you have to get out of your bone box' are confusing to me, as don't we have to essentially premeditate in order to do any action unless it has become unconscious habit or we would essentially be stuck in some sort of delusion.. I feel bad that I want second opinions, like I am being fascist or something and I hate that feeling.. because I think he is a good person, I just don't know how to process all this.
Side effects: Mental confusion
