I been seeing a LCSW for 3 yrs, 4 times a week. It's very costly. I work professional and working on a masters, yet my therapist feels that me cutting down to twice or once a week isn't good therapy. He feels I have situational depression, DID-NOS and psychosis-NOS, because I think too much, but I'm also a writer and very artistic. I'm just beginning to see that this is a money thing with him, if I was so bad off mentally why arent I'm locked up. Is this type of therapy overkill?
In the beginning it was cool...someone else to talk with, but 2 yrs ago I've been talking more and more to other people in similar situations with their teens, and haven't felt my therapist advice was worth it over others. Also, at least once a wk I've been bringing up discontinuing therapy with him, but he discourage it, as if I was this lunatic. My problem is I never trust my instincts.Always fall for the abusive, controlling type men. I'm not sure if I'm being taken advantage of, and as I said previously no other therapist would tell me the truth. recently I told my boss how many times I see this guy and she was shocked, because I function quite well. He makes $26,000 a yr from me and my insurance since I've been seeing him. I guess I always known the answer, just needed to hear it from someone else. Thanks!
