Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in New York State. Thank you for reaching out to Just answer, I can hear how difficult a time you are having. I am so, so sorry for your losses. Of course you are feeling unsafe and protective of yourself, you have been through a lot. Could I research psychotherapists in your area that I could recommend could help you as you said get through this anxiety and trauma you are feeling? There are several forms of therapy that could help you to feel much better. The combination of medication and psychotherapy is the most effective. Please let me know where yo live and I would be more than glad to help. Also please know that your mother's criticisms of you are about her, not you. People who hurt others and are critical are hurt themselves and venting their pain and anger onto others. You do not deserve this and need a safe place with a therapist to help you to change how you react. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, ***** ***** LMSW, CASAC PS I am working with several people in my practice today, if I do not get right back to you, I will just as soon as I can.What you are going through matters to me.
Yes, I understand how difficult this must be for you. I will look for a therapist who uses a sliding scale. I will be back to you in a bit, I am meeting with clients now for a bit. Just breathe for now..............I like this exercise: breathe in deeply through your nose and say I breathe in calm and breathe out of your mouth saying I breathe out fear. Liinda
