Mom at her wit's end / Therapy in San Diego

My mom has always had high anxiety, been prone to fear and pessimism, and has tended to focus on her fears in a very repetitive, verbal way that is often tiring to those around her. Her situation has worsened recently for several reasons. I want to help her find help. This question is both about therapy in general and for recommendations in San Diego in particular. [more inside]

Tell me how to choose a child/family therapist.

Should I go for the in-plan, cheap co-pay therapist or pony up more cash for the therapist who seems a better fit for my family? Would it be bad to switch therapists shortly into the process? [more inside]

Paralysis by Analysis

Has anyone gone through a period in their life where they've just become too overanalytical and serious? I started therapy a little over a year and a half ago and it has been great. I've gained a lot of additional understanding of myself which has been helpful but at the same time I think it's actually detrimental in other ways. [more inside]

Psychotherapy? Psicoterapia? Psychothérapie? психотерапия?

With regards to psychotherapy, a common opinion I've noticed on MetaFilter is that Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is perceived as being the most efficient way to go, in addition to being one of the very few therapies likely to be reimbursed by health insurance. However, this may be coming from a largely American perspective. As such, I'm curious: What are some major features of psychotherapy in countries other than the United States? [more inside]

That Boy Needs Therapy

I'm a male in my early twenties who has washed out of college and is looking for a mental health professional of some sort in Northern Virginia. Issues I feel are likely to come up are my (long-ago diagnosed) attention deficit disorder, depression, and some form of OCD - I have a deep and (likely irrational) fear of psychosis and other impairments of cognition. I am deeply wary of psychiatric drugs, and want to work with someone who shares my attitude toward them, but would recommend them as a last resort. So what I'm after is some sort of talk therapy, preferably with a medical doctor (as oppose to "just" a PhD). [more inside]

How do I find off-the-books therapy?

A while ago, I asked about the implications of accessing mental health care and possibly having a diagnosis tied to me. From the answers, I've concluded that in my specific situation, any help I need will have to be "off the record." Because that's my decision, this has made it hard to obtain care. How do I go about finding it anyway? [more inside]

Help with low testosterone

Hi. I'm a 40 year old male with a 32 year old girlfriend. I have just discovered after a recent decline in sexual interest and performance, loss of muscle mass, intense depression and fatigue that I have extremely low testosterone for my age. I took two blood tests and my serum T levels were 200 and 250. I would love to hear any success stories with testosterone replacement therapy. I'd be particularly interested in the resulting career and professional successes that coincided with testosterone therapy as well as any improved sexual drive and performance. I'm at the lowest point of my life financially and professionally. I have an appointment with a well known endochronologist coming up and I'm trying to keep positive. Thanks
