I am a 33 year old female. I recently started treatment for clinical depression with a psychotherapist. She referred me to a psychiatrist for medication (Celexa), but wanted me to continue weekly sessions with her. The psychiatrist told me that I do not need to continue treatment with her if I am undergoing treatment with him once every two weeks. I like the psychiatrist's straight forward methods a little better, but I want to make sure I'm getting the help I need to get through this. This is very confusing. It was a big step for me to initiate therapy to start with, as I was having trouble even getting out my front door. Now I feel like I'm obligated to both of them and don't know what to do. Is it counterproductive to undergo treatment with two different people who have different orientations? What type of treatment would you recommend for clinical depression?
