I have been seeing a therapist at this office and the intake went well. She set me up for every two weeks and then suggested every week which happened once. The problem is the appointments started getting farther apart saying she was booked. I saw her today after almost a month and she scheduled me for six weeks out and put me on a waitlist in case of a cancellation. Am I being pushed out?

Mental health care, overwhelmed during the pandemic, has been unable to meet our needs--it's not just you. I dont know if you're paying out of pocket or through insurance, my situation is insurance and I can't see my therapist more than once every 4-5 weeks.

It's hard for me to determine, is it the agency that's letting me down, or the entirety of the system or maybe both. I supplement my individual therapy with peer support groups, communities like this and therapy that can be self-directed (cognitive).

You perhaps need to get another therapist or take the problem up with the therapist the next time she will see you. If you decide to get another therapist, inform your present therapist of your intentions first.

It sounds like your therapist is continuing to accept new clients or prioritizing the needs of other clients that are not you. If you have expectations for a regular set schedule I would make this very clear with them.
