Good afternoon 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.
Ahhhh yes, personality disorders can be very challenging for not only those suffering but also those who are friends, colleagues and family members.
I imagine there is already a bit of resentment already built up as he is only working a few hours a week and getting the same salary as his brother who is obviously working more.
You didn't mention what type of personality disorder this family member has but it might make sense for the entire family to become as educated on it as possible. This will allow everyone to stay on the same page and minimize any possible manipulation or splitting on the part of the individual suffering with the p/d.
Could continuation of employment in the family business be contingent on this individual seeking psychotherapy and psychiatry assistance? I know this is done in many other organizations and imagine it will be met with frustration and even possible resistance as this is a family business but in all fairness to the other employees, it might be worth trying.
Have I answered your question? Is there anything else I can do to assist you further? I want to ensure you are pleased with my service. I also gently request you provide a star rating for me. Of course, we can continue to talk after the rating is provided.
Please take good care of yourself and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
