I am a licensed social worker who provides therapy to individuals, couples and families and my role is not to tell people what to do. I listen, identify themes, supports, and barriers to growth. I may make suggestions but they are never ultimatums or necessary to continue the therapy. I also provide a safe place for people to let whatever they want out. I could go on but I'm sure you see where it all goes. I also have had extensive therapy myself, most likely this is what led me to social work. I found it helped when my dad died when I was 21 ( I have daddy issues) and during my friend's suicide. I've also gone with my sibling who is bipolar to do family work. We've all benefited but it is tru that you will need to be open to therapy. I would call your employee EAP if you have one and ask for a referral. They will know therapists in your area that are covered by insurance. You should also be able to look online through your insurer if you do not want to go through the EAP. FYI, your employer cannot access who calls the EAP line. Hope you find what you need smile03.gif

Cathrine, I don't know how I missed this! I'm so sorry you're having a hard time right now.

 

I think you need to look at therapy, not as something that will dammage your pride, but as something that requires great courage and self awareness.

 

You are a strong woman. I know this because you would not have been able to handle such devastating losses without going completely crazy! You are a loving mother. I know that from the way you speak of your little boy.

 

This is just a bump in the road, it might be a big bump, but it is nothing you can't overcome. You know yourself well enough to recognize there is a problem and that you don't want your life to continue in this way. By seeking help, you are saying that these feelings can't and won't keep you down, that you are better and can rise above it.

 

I wish you the best of luck and we are always here if you need to vent.

 

Please keep us posted on your progress.

 

**Big Hugs**
