I have a friend who has struggled with intermittent depression for more than a decade. Things in his life have become very stressful lately and he's been struggling again. After initially being very adamant that he wouldn't see a therapist, he has expressed tentative interest in starting therapy but can't seem to find anyone that appeals to him.
He's very intelligent and has struggled with this for many years. I mention these things because he needs someone who can operate at the level he does and who can deal with a depression that my friend sees as an integral part of himself--"depressed" is the way that he is and the way he'll always be, according to him.
Needs to be downtown or northside. Extra bonus points if they have a website or profile on a site like Psychology Today. Thanks for your suggestions.
