Good morning and thank you so much for your message. I realize it's difficult to reach out. Please know I honor your courage.
My name is ***** ***** I am a psychotherapist in the Metro Boston area.
I am so sorry to hear you are struggling, sweet soul. Anxiety can be incredibly challenging and I understand you have tried just about everything non-medical without relief at the current time and fear it might be time to work with a psychiatrist to determine what medicine may be most effective. You have clearly put this off but sadly it is now interfering with every aspect of your life.
Are you currently working with a therapist? This will be incredibly helpful in understanding your anxiety further, developing strong coping skills and understanding any patterns to it. A therapist can also work closely with your psychiatrist ensuring your care is coordinated.
I know you have many of your own coping techniques but I wanted to suggest a few I tell my clients......
1. psychotherapy to learn some coping skills
I just wanted to check in as I haven't heard from you. Have I answered your question? Is there anything else I can assist you with? I gently request you provide a star rating for me so I may be compensated. Of course, we can continue to talk after a rating is provided.
Please take good care of yourself and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
