I'm currently seeing a psychiatrist for depression and anxiety. I've been taking meds for this for about six weeks and things seem to be improving somewhat, but the last time I saw my psychiatrist he impressed upon me that I should also be seeing a therapist. I've spoken to my insurance company, and while they're covering the psychiatrist visits and the meds, they will not cover therapy.
Do you know of any resources in NYC for people in my situation? I don't feel myself like I absolutely need to be in therapy, but I trust my psychiatrist knows better than I do so I'm willing to make it happen if possible. However, I cannot afford to pay much for this, and would prefer not to pay at all as money is quite tight at the moment. Any advice?
