When you have been meeting with your new therapist weekly for over 6 months and she listens that you don’t want to go back on meds. And you continue to talk and dig and poke and prod together. And she finds a course of treatment that she is not her “expertise” but is willing to learn with me. And you take the day and into the next to learn more about it. And it completely matches everything you have struggled with both known and unknown. And it relates to past trauma and current difficulties in daily life.

I believe this can be something that will help after all these years of hit and miss “professionals” trying to put me in a box rather than taking the time to get to know me, my values, and what is important to just me.
