Hello there, thank you for your patience. Many individuals prefer to treat the symptoms of mental health without medication and in fact Forbes magazine did an article I will share with you about how much more psychotherapy is effective in treating symptoms than medication. Is this something you have considered? After I hear back from you I also want to share some areas to build into your life to strengthen your emotional and psychological resiliency and coping skills. I look forward to hearing from you and will be online all day today. Sincerely, ***** ***** LMSW, CASAC
