How did you go about getting therapy?

I'm on Zoloft for PPD, but I think I'd like to try therapy too. How did you go about it? Do I get a rec from my PCP? Does insurance pay for it? Do I find someone privately? Did anyone go through their or their DH's Employee Assistance Program? I don't know where to start!

  • I got a rec from my OB - the therapist was associated with the hospital I gave birth in.

  • It depends on your insurance. I also use zoloft but I find therapy is better. I got a rec my from ob. My insurance allows 20+ counseling sessions a year. I didn't have to do much other then make the appt. The therapist I use contacted the ins. co for me.

  • The hospital I gave birth at had a PPD screening program, I was placed into it because of my past history with depression. It's been covered so far because it was a referral and within 6 months of me giving birth.
