Why on earth would you want to see her again?

There are a lot of bad therapists out there. You can learn CBT from a book or there might even be some websites that have all the info you need. The therapist just kind of acts as your coach. A good therapist will motivate you to do the exercises.

There should be something out there like CBT coaching. I don't know if there is, but really, that's all you need. You don't need a $100 an hour psychologist. They're for rich people who are depressed because their lives feel empty.

Nobody loves me but my dog, and I think he might be jivin', too.
