I have had depression for most of my life. At age 16 I was diagnosed as having a major depression disorder and have been on anti-depressants for most of the past 25 years. I have been in therapy a few times but the therapists and I have never uncovered the root causes. While seeing Laurie in the past year once every other week, we have uncovered many of the reasons or false beliefs that have fueled my depression. I would now like to taper of my medication but will need the assistantance of Laurie to do so in safe therapeutic manner. After moving to the island a year and a half ago my wife and I have struggled financially as either she or I have had difficulty finding full time employment. Right now we are on a very tight budget which does not allow for me to pay $100 an hour for therapy. I would greatly appreciate the help!
How will this treatment impact Tony's life?
Learning what is behind my depression and how to confront the it’s roots and how to cope with low moods. As a husband and a father of young children I don’t want to waste time being down. I want to live a rich fulfilling life with the ability to confront life’s struggles, overcome them and move on.
