I'm looking for a therapist in Portland who is great at helping with bipolar II. My disorder has gotten out of control lately and my moods are cycling much too quickly for me to handle and I'd like to find a regular therapist and also someone that could help with medication. Curve ball: I either don't have insurance or I am on the OHP but don't know how to use it. I'm also jobless, so low-cost/sliding scale is the best option. My old therapist was the greatest, but currently I can't afford to pay her. Any recommendations? Let me know if I should memail you for any other details. Thanks!
I made a promise to my family that I wouldn't make decisions about my treatment without them. I want alternative treatment. If they say no, do I still go? [more inside]
I have rapid and extreme mood swings and am generally empty and anxious. I've got all the time in the world. What should I try, medication, self-help or therapy wise to get better and find happiness? [more inside]

I have been seeing a therapist for about two months now and am not happy with our sessions. I want to try to find another person, but I'm not sure of the protocol of leaving one therapist for another. [more inside]

My therapist now thinks I've got ADHD. Everyone agrees I'm bipolar. I'm self-diagnosed with medical students' disease. How do I sort this out now that I know she's biased? [more inside]
