Therapy Difficulties

I’m not sure what to do about my therapy appointments. I have my fieldwork rotation in California for the next 3 months but my therapist is back in Texas. She said before that we could do sessions over Zoom, but I don’t see how it’s going to work out with the 2 hour time difference. The times that I’m working just don’t align with the days and times she works, unfortunately. I could really use a session, but I don’t want to inconvenience her or be a burden by asking her to meet outside of when she typically works. I don’t know if I can wait until I get back to Texas in April to have a session again. That would be 3 months without a therapy appointment. I’ve been really happy here, I have…but it’s also been really hard. Learning how to be an OT is hard and overwhelming, and my anxiety is kicking into overdrive with all these self-doubts, feeling like I will never be good enough or smart enough to actually succeed and care for my patients well. I have been trying different medications for over a year now and still haven’t found one that works for helping manage my anxiety. I don’t have any support physically here with me. I am here on my own. All of my go-to people are 2 or 3 hours ahead of me, and after only one week I have been realizing how difficult it is to find time to talk to them with the differences in times/schedules. I’m not really sure what to, do but I know I’m not strong enough to make it 3 months without having my therapy sessions.
