has anyone been and did it help? i've hit a low period but don't know what kind of therapy would work for me. i suspect it might turn into couples but will have to wait and see.

feedback appreciated -

I am in the same boat as you....my midwife gave me a name of someone awhile ago but I never had the guts to call. I tried yesterday and the number seemed to be a fax number. I am going to try again today. Good luck and feel better!

I go to counseling. I started going a few years back when I was having issues with my son's dad. It turned into couples therapy for awhile and did help us. We actually had a nice year together as a family. However, when he returned to his old ways, I started going again, alone and it helped me get the courage to leave him, which I needed to. (not sure what your situation is).
I guess what I am trying to say, yes it helps! Because of costs, I dont go as often as I should, but when I go it helps so much.
Good luck!

No problem

I am a strong believer in that it really helped me change my life for the best.
I have an amazing counselor who really makes me think about things. And he gives me great advice and pushes me in the right direction to make the right choices for DS and myself.
I actually have an appointment next week and I havent been since last Spring and I am can not wait to go. I know I will feel better after talking to him.

Good luck! and (((HUGS)))

I would like to have someone to just talk to. Sometimes I wonder if I could work some things out in my family's history if I wouldn't be such an angry fly off the handle person.

If I could afford it I think I would go. Plus I'm kind of shy & doesn't it take like a year to spill the beans to get them to know you.

If you need help there's nothing wrong with going. ((((Hugs))))
