    Finding My Way

    I am about half way through getting my hours to be licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist.  I have a paying job as an Intern but I feel this agency is taking away my soul, my creativity, and stifling my growth as a clinician!  DMH work sucks the life out of you...

    I Feel So Guilty Doing Couples Therapy, When My Own Marriage Is A Sham.

    I specialize in children and adolescents, but on many occassions I have been asked to do couples therapy. Oddly, I am quite successful at couples therapy. I say oddly, because my own marriage is practically non-existant. We stay together for the kids, but we have no interest in...

    I Don't Get It

    How can someone hurt you so much with his mouth to a point where you wanna die? how can someone make you feel so low, lower than dirt? on top of that of that, he always make himself out to be the victim. Is God watching? how can I give my life to God and still go through this?

    I need help. This doesn't involve myself,

    but I'd like someone to vent with and could possibly diagnose a family member of mine. It scares me on what she's doing and I need help. Maybe just someone to tell me what they think is going on. Just something to lead me. Thank you, and please contact me if you can help.
