Event Type

Rayna, a 49-year-old female with a manic depressive character, was working as a professional entertainer when she was first treated by Dr. Bosworth in a medication-only clinic setting. She was also seeing another therapist at the time. Rayna exhibited signs of debilitating depression with simultaneous anxiety and said she had never felt so overwhelmed. Over several months of sessions with Dr. Bosworth, as well as frequent phone calls in between visits, Rayna’s medications were adjusted, gradually tapered, and finally discontinued. She was doing well and transferred her care to an outside therapist.

Months later, Rayna reached out to Dr. Bosworth for medication, traveling a great distance to see her. Dr. Bosworth listened to her latest account of events and to how she was feeling emotionally.  She decided to prescribe the starting doses of her previous medications. While Rayna could have chosen any number of psychiatrists or physicians for medications, she reached out to Dr. Bosworth because of the strong therapeutic relationship that was previously established between them.
