Customer Question
i am having serious issues...
i am having serious issues with my husband's ex-wife and my stepkids. My husband is not being supportive of me, even if the ex-wife is verbally abusive to all of us. Is there a therapist you would recommend for me in the Fresno County, California area? my husband does not seem interested in marriage counseling, so this would be for myself to help deal with these issues and decide if I want or can stay in this relationship/situation.'
Thank you.

Hello:

So sorry, but we do not have the resources to know about referrals in specific areas. You do need to see a therapist who has experience in blended families and high conflict divorces.

My suggestion is that you contact your insurance company and ask them for a referral in this specialty.

If you have another question about this situation I will be very happy to assist you.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
