Eclectic Approach

Cognitive therapy works well in helping to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.  Where counseling and therapy can benefit more than medication I agree with the approach.  I would much rather learn and think my way through things than pop another pill.  I have had Dialectical Behavior Therapy which greatly enhanced my life if not  literally saved me from grave consequences.  I also have to take medication for mental illness I have a chemical imbalance in my brain (bipolar).  I can't function without the stabilizers and antidepressants.
