Can therapy counter-act hormones?

I had been making some progress on the whole 'stop worrying about everything and try to be less sensitive' front. All of it went out the window when I started a medication that affects my hormone levels. Is there a way to CBT yourself out of biology, or will I be a nervous wreck forever? [more inside]

Get Therapy 201: How do I get the most out of therapy?

OK, AskMe, around these parts we know and love the advice to get therapy. It's great advice! But what about the 201-level advice? Once you get yourself into therapy, how do you get the most out of it? I'm curious to hear some MeFite wisdom. What has made your experience with therapy richer and more helpful? Give me your practical tips, and tell me about mindsets and attitudes that you have found to be helpful (or not helpful). [more inside]

Hi, I'm looking for a set of children's fantasy picturebooks from the 1960s or 1970s, that were designed for educational therapy, specifically to teach children how to correctly pronounce the "R", "Th" and "L". The ones I can remember were: [more inside]

Problems with my therapist. Is the answer still "therapy"?

I'm completely confused and upset about recent developments in my therapy, and I don't know if I should continue it or not. I'm sorry but this is loooong, and there's really no good TL;DR I can come up with. Please be gentle; I realize I'm possibly wrong about everything, but I'm feeling fragile right now. [more inside]

My therapist has died. What now?

I spent a sizable portion of my adult life, a good 25 years, searching for a therapist who would truly understand me. In 2005, I did. After a a few years of not going, I went to see her again. As usual, she made me feel so much better that months passed before I called for another appointment. Then I learned she passed away suddenly. I honestly don't know what to do now. She had a private practice, so no colleagues, though I did reach out to a former associate of hers from a while back. I'm not sure if he's taking new clients, though. What are your suggestions? Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Help me find a low-cost or sliding scale therapist in Richmond, VA

After a completely sleepless, panicky night spent crying into my pillow, I realize I need help controlling my anxiety disorder. I am uninsured (until January) so low cost is essential, but I want to see a good therapist trained in CBT or a similar modality...bonus points if you know a provider who would be friendly to monogamish relationship situations, but I know that might be pushing it. Thanks for your help MeFites. I'm tired of the struggle...

Reboot our marriage! Tell us all about how we need therapy!

Spouse and I are struggling. We're busy, we're cranky, we're over extended, we are both feeling unappreciated and unheard. We have some of the stereotypical gender based dysfunctional interactions. We are having the same damn fights. Though more frequently because of life. There's no big drama, but we aren't being as nice to each other as we should be. We aren't supporting each other the way we should. [more inside]

I need to stop being abusive

I was in therapy, but then we moved to a developing country a few months ago where therapies are not the done thing. I was physically, emotionally and verbally abusive before therapy. After a lot of work, I am a lot less abusive, but I've found that I still engage in controlling behavior. For the sake of my mental health and my relationship I want to stop completely, but don't know how to without professional help. [more inside]

I know my counselor experienced a recent loss. What to do?

I saw on social media that my therapist's mother died on Saturday. However, she has confirmed our appointment for the day after tomorrow. I am quite sad about her loss. She doesn't know I look at her social media, and it is probably not appropriate to say anything about her personal life at any rate. How do I go to session two days from now and talk about my petty problems, knowing what she is going through? Is it inappropriate for me to be very upset about this loss in my therapist's life, that I'm not supposed to know about?

9/11. Oy. Are there any active online support groups for 9/11 survivors?

Are there any active online support groups for 9/11 survivors? I was in midtown when the WTC was attacked in 2001. That brought on several days of stressful situations for myself and others in the city (evacuating due to bomb threats, going near the site only to run for your life because fears of other buildings falling near the site, etc). I coped as everyone else did in the city, and for the past several years I've avoided most if not all 9/11 coverage. This year, the anniversary passed without me realizing it - but then on the 12th I was reading an article about first responders lobbying congress and it sent me down a rabbit hole of watching (for the first time) life news footage of the attacks.

My Therapist Just Fired Me (maybe?), What To Do?

I am seeing a therapist for pain management. I called to cancel this morning because I had a migraine and was in no shape to go to my appointment. His scheduler called me back and said that I had violated a no show policy, and she’s going to have to talk to the therapist but I’m probably discharged from their clinic. I was unaware of such policy. I’m pissed, hurt and feel incredibly vulnerable. I’m not sure what to do next and could use some advice. [more inside]

Is there any benefit to pursuing a diagnosis for neurodevelopmental disorders (specifically autism spectrum disorder or adhd) as an adult? Are there reasons not to seek a diagnosis in that realm?
