I'm from the crohn's board, and am trying to locate a good therapist. I'm not interested in seeing a psychiatrist, since they're more apt to prescribe drugs than just use talk therapy. So sticking with the psychologists/LCSW's. How did you find your therapist? Was it a referral from your doc? How many did you go through before you found a good fit?
I'm not clinically depressed, just having issues dealing with setbacks with crohn's and the whole d-amn disease really. So I think some unloading and just talking will help me deal. I've been using the HW board for over 2 years, but I think I'm sliding down a slope as of late that HW can't reverse.
I should add I've been to 1 that my GI referred me to based on recommendations from another doc in his group. The guy and I didn't jive, at all. He seemed more interested in treating my CD with alternative methods than getting to the point that my head is what needed his attention, not my bowels. So I've asked for another name, and the doc is looking into it.
Any advice you can give is greatly appreciated!
