I never have the option to schedule a visit within six weeks

Published Tuesday, April 23, 2019

I generally only need to see my therapist once a month, which is very good because I never have the option to schedule a visit anywhere within six weeks. Even though I wanted to see my therapist over the winter holiday season to deal with my depression, my visit was pushed back all the way to March. I don’t blame my therapist — she’s great — but I feel like she needs more help if she can only see patients once every 30 days.
