Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Welcome, I'm a professional counselor and behavioral-consultant. I'd like to chat with you for a few moments to better understand your question.
For example, would you mind telling me more about why you say you are a shopaholic and how shopping is currently interfering with your life?
My shopping is interfering with my life that I'm always fighting with my parents about my spending habits. I have my father in debt constantly. And I'm a shopolic because I'm always buying stuff on the Internet.
I am so sorry to hear that you are going through this right now. May ask if you are over 18 years old?
I have been in therapy in the past.
I just want to make sure that you are over 18 years old, and if you are, I'd really like to hear about the kind of therapy you have been in.
I'm 37 year old female. I was once in therapy when I was 16 for depression/builimia/suicide attempt for year, that was talk therapy. I didn't like my therapist. I was in talk therapy when I was 19 for OCD and for adjusting to life from graduation high school. I ended that because I felt better. I like my therapist during that year. For the last ten years I was in talk therapy for depression, social anxiety disorder, and OCD. I love my therapist for those ten years. But since the governor of New Jersey where I live cut the mental health funding for the state, I had to end my therapy with my therapist.
