Advice & Tips: When I talk to my Psychiatrist I know that I will never be sitting somewhere and see the person that I have spilled my guts to like I would if I had talked to a friend as openly as I talk to Dr. O. With Dr. O I can be myself and tell him everything that is going on in my life without fear of repercussions or someone having ammunition to hold over my head. With Dr. O I can be assured of complete professionalism and I know that he would never let any of my secrets that I tell him out to anyone. I have been seeing the same psychiatrist now for over 20 years and we are very close and I would recommend this form of therapy to everyone. I really feel like a weight has been taken off of me after my appointments with Dr. O.
Cost: < $25 monthly

Dosage: 45 min Weekly
Advice & Tips: The right therapist is very very very very very difficult to find, but extremely effective if you can find him/her. It is often too stressful to go through the search, though. Especially for someone experiencing depression. I found a therapist who incorporated mindfulness meditation techniques and was very happy with her, but my insurance did not cover her. I may return to her at some point, but right now I am doing okay with my meditation practice and the meditation groups that I attend. Plus, my friends' support has been awesome for the last year.
