Hi, Thanks for your response. Let me say I can imagine how worried and anxious you must have been about your daughter's condition. It sounds like she may have trouble taking care of herself. She should be able to live independently by now. Does she have symptoms of anxiety
or depression? If so,
she may need to see her primary care physician for a physical check-up to detect and rule out any medical condition that may cause depression and/or anxiety. Then, if she is physically fine but has some mood problems,
she may need to see a counselor/psychotherapist OR life coach WEEKLY for 3-6 months or longer. If she is resistant to psychological counseling, she may have life coaching to increase her self-confidence, motivation/purpose, plan for the future, and take constructive action.
For psychological counseling,
she may benefit from having a Cognitive-Behavior therapy (CBT). CBT is a most effective therapy for anxiety and depression. There are several ways to find a psychologist or psychotherapist who takes her insurance. Or
she can call your insurance company and get a list of providers in your area. Or, you can search a licensed psychotherapist or a counselor who provides life coaching on internet- such as the PSYCHOLOGY TODAY website. Go to (http://therapists.psychologytoday.com/ppc/prof_search.php?iorb=4764) and enter your zip code and optional category of specialty such as anxiety, depression or life coaching. Read psychotherapists’ profile to see if he or she specializes in Cognitive-behavior therapy or life coaching. You may also want to create your mental image of psychotherapist that she wants to work with – Male or female? To note, many therapists offer initial consultation for free. So she can see it as an informational meeting. She can ask any question. She can also negotiate psychotherapy fee and number of sessions. If she seeks a low fee counseling or has no health insurance, she may call The United Way toll free # XXXXX to find the community mental health centers in her area in which she can get counseling even without health insurance.
