Good evening and thank you so much for your message. I realize it's difficult to reach out. Please know I honor your courage.
My name is ***** ***** I am a psychotherapist in the Metro Boston area.
My heart absolutely aches for you. I imagine you feel incredibly alone and isolated.
Just a few questions....Has your insurance simply changed? Or, are you without it entirely? If without it entirely, have you applied to one of the Obamacare programs or State programs?
Have you spoken with your therapist about doing a possible sliding scale fee? It sounds like you have worked with her for awhile and I'm curious if she would be willing to adjust her rate to something manageable for you?
Are there any charity or faith-based organizations in the area that offer free counseling services?
I'm curious if you are taking any antidepressants medications for your sadness/loss? If not, this might be helpful in navigating this really difficult time.
In the meanwhile, I highly recommend checking into some of the online support groups for grief/loss, those surviving divorce and/or depression. Would you like me to forward you some support group information?
My sincere apologies for all of the questions. I want to ensure I fully understand your situation before responding further.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
