Advice & Tips: In addition to treating the things I was in counseling for, Kathy also helped build my self esteem. She persuaded me to get involved in arts & crafts as coping skills (and I love it). She retired as of July 1, 2013, at which point I changed to Nancy Stockman for the same reasons and I see positive effects, it will take time to get to the stage of results I'd had with Kathy after seeing her for almost 18 years. My psyhciatrist, (who primarily did med checks based on my counselor/therapist's suggestions), resigned rather suddenly and moved to Texas. I had a choice of 4 replacements and chose Amber Edwards, ARNP. I've had one "telemed" session with her. However, she is much more in favor of the prescription medication detox my gen doc wanted to do but my old psychiatrist vetoed. In her words, she is much more in favor of a holistic approach.

Advice & Tips: I've been working with Kathy for over 15 years and she has done a lot for my self image in addition to helping me with my mental illnesses. She also got me to try drawing/sketching as a therapy, which I kind of scoffed at because the best I had ever been able to do before was to draw stick figures. But I gave it 100% effort and discovered that I actually had some talent and found it to be a great stress reliever and a wonderful hobby. After that, I expanded into other arts & crafts on my own and earn a little spending money by selling some of my projects.

Advice & Tips: My experience with the counseling intern at school was great, and different than experiences I've had with therapy. She revealed to me yesterday that she was not a CBT therapist, which I've only had in the past. She said she was more psycho-dynamic I think. She focuses more on symbols and awareness, and made my life make more sense and more meaningful. I'm going to look more into this kind of therapy, since she was just a graduate student intern.

Advice & Tips: Dr. Z. is a moron and I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. The only reason that I see him is to help keep up with my medications. Other than that, I don't tell him anything that he doesn't need to know and I only tell him what medications I take and why I take them and tell him and let him decide if they need to be upped or downed. Other than that, I do not have anything to do with him, period.

Advice & Tips: My most immediate issue(s) were Obsessive Compulsive Disorder as well as Major Depressive Disorder and Anxiety. My counselor was helpful in answering questions and looking up information, but she really had no real training in what I needed her for. When I started with Excess Daytime Sleepiness, I kept forgetting appts or sleeping through them (either at home or at her office).

  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 200 min Monthly
Advice & Tips: I'm not entirely sure my therapist understands how deeply my issues affect ME. She thinks everything can be solved by just stopping the obsessive behaviors--she claims they are a substitution for something else--I want to know WHAT THAT SOMETHING ELSE IS. I am also constantly obsessed with details--I am always asking questions about the most minute things; I can't even get through a movie because I get caught up with minor inconsistencies and I don't appreciate the "editorial license" that producers take, even though I'm an [former] editor, copywriter, copyeditor and published writer. I want all these questions in my head to stop.
