    Therapist says I need higher level of care, but there aren't any options available. How do I start processing trauma in therapy?

    Thank you so much for your response. I am trying to get a full medical work-up to see if anything is going on physically. My therapist's specialties include psychosis and PTSD, and when I say we've been through a lot together, I mean we've really been through a lot. So many times I thought she...

    Therapist says I need higher level of care, but there aren't any options available. How do I start processing trauma in therapy?

    ALSO I'm so worried insurance will try to taper down and cut off care soon, especially since I have medi-cal and it's not great and I heard they try to do that as much as possible. Also especially because I've been seeing her for 3 years as of this July. I'm so scared about this. I don't have a...

    Therapist says I need higher level of care, but there aren't any options available. How do I start processing trauma in therapy?

    Absolutely. I'm trying to find things that will help me, but at best I think they might help manage some symptoms, but I want to feel different and lessen the weight of all this on me, that I can't escape. I also do need to create a tool kit like you said, I'm just trying to find what works...

    Therapist says I need higher level of care, but there aren't any options available. How do I start processing trauma in therapy?

    Yeah it feels so hurtful but I hope I am taking the comment the wrong way. Perhaps she means it's a once a week check-in right now, during the Phase 1, and maybe later we can go deeper. It still hurts though because I really trust her and she is an awesome therapist. I thought she really cared...

    Therapist says I need higher level of care, but there aren't any options available. How do I start processing trauma in therapy?

    I just looked into the WRAP program and they are saying the next session starts on March 30, but they want $300. Currently I'm taking the NAMI peer-to-peer support class for learning to live with a mental illness/managing it. I also go to support groups but, honestly, they don't help. They just...

    Therapist says I need higher level of care, but there aren't any options available. How do I start processing trauma in therapy?

    Gotcha. This all makes sense. I really don't find joy in anything. I've been trying but I have absolutely no desires and everything feels draining. Everything. It's really tough. I hope maybe the chemicals will shift in my head enough sometime to where I can feel a small amount of joy at least...

    Therapist says I need higher level of care, but there aren't any options available. How do I start processing trauma in therapy?

    I understand this and thank you so much for your response. My only thing is that the PTSD itself is one of the two main reasons why I am not stable (along with the schizoaffective disorder), or was not stable. The PTSD is destabilizing me much more as of now and recently, whereas some of my...

    Therapist says I need higher level of care, but there aren't any options available. How do I start processing trauma in therapy?

    Hi all. I've been working with my current therapist for about 2.5 years and she is amazing. However, I'm in a bit of a conundrum. I have schizoaffective disorder and PTSD. For about the past year, I was in a major psychotic episode most of the time. I think I've been doing better, functioning...
