Help me navigate the basics of the mental health system

My only real experience with mental health practitioners was a brief stint with my free university counseling where I tried one or two medications for anxiety and depression. They didn't do anything for me and I became disheartened and left the idea behind for the past few years. Having gotten health insurance for the first time a few months ago and after some recent introspection, I've found myself interested in possibly trying some anti-anxiety/depression medication again, as well as some sort of ongoing psychotherapy.

How Do I (Politely) Quit My Therapist?

I've been seeing the same therapist, mostly once a week, for a little over two years. I feel like we're going around in circles. It may be me (it probably is), but he's been very patient and flexible with me on a variety of issues (including financial--he's not covered by my insurance.) What's the most respectful to say adieu and jump ship [more inside]

Depressed and without health insurance

I don't have health insurance right now, but I do get an allowance through work to go toward a private, individual plan. I haven't purchased a plan quite yet, and I'm wondering if seeing a therapist now might cause problems for me later. I also don't understand how pre-existing conditions are defined when it comes to mental health issues. (I live in Washington state.) [more inside]

Awesome Austin Therapist?

Austin Therapist Recommendations: A friend is looking for a therapist to work through some issues. He wants someone who is active in conversation and is willing to confront him on things when necessary. He's had therapists in the past who were nice but too passive, and just listened more than they offered ideas and suggestions. The ideal therapist would listen without judging but would help stimulate new ideas and change in his life. Do you know of anyone like this?
