    I’m not sure that one is ever completely “done” with therapy, but I find that I need to rely on it a lot less than I used to. I could probably do less individual therapy than I have now (I’m seeing my therapist once a month or so) but it’s a sort of a safety net for me, and it gives me time to process through the things that are going on in my life.

    My goal in therapy, for years, was to work through the stuff that was having negative effects in my life–the responses to abuse and all of that. I feel pretty confident that we managed to do that, and while the abuse didn’t disappear, it’s not been a major feature of things for me for the past year or two. Now, my goal in therapy is mostly to maintain the relationship, and to make sure I’m processing through things before they get to a point where they’re a crisis.
