Customer Question

Hi Pearl,
JA: OK. The Psychologist will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Psychologist can help you best.
Customer: My husband has been controlling for all of our 18 years of marriage. He has been physically and emotional abusive. I want to leave, but I don't want my children growing up in a broken home. Don't know what to do.
JA: Is there anything else the Psychologist should be aware of?
Customer: no
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Psychologist about your situation and then connect you two.

Good morning. Thank you for your question and the vulnerability expressed. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you. I have a brief picture of what you are dealing with, but I do hope that you are not in imminent danger, nor are your children. Could you tell me a bit about how old they are and your support system? I want to be thorough, so if you can, please send any other details while I am working on your response :)
