I’ve been seeing a therapist—a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in particular—since May.
It’s been a year since I began taking an SSRI for anxiety/depression, and I sort of skipped that logical first step of seeking therapy before turning to medication.
But…the past is in the past, and starting medication when I did was a necessary choice for me, I believe, although I do wish I had begun counseling much earlier.
I had a lot of preconceptions before I walked into my first session, and while some of them were accurate, many were not. I thought some of you might benefit from hearing my takeaways and reflections on counseling so far.
