Have Relationship Questions? Ask a Counselor for Answers ASAP
I am 39, he is 33. He said he would go to couples therapy when he gets more time from work. He says he does not want to change from seeing her because he will have to take the time and have someone else get to know him (like he would be starting over). He is on Cymbalta and suffers from depression. That was given to him by our doctor. She made sure to look it up and give him info because she was not sure he should be on it. She said he should visit her doctor.
I appreciate your help. At least I know I am not way out of line. Besides, I was under the impression that a life coach deals with NOW and improving your life, not in finding a way to "fix" past issues,etc. I like the whole concept of a life coach, but this is a strange client/professional relationship to me. So, how would you suggest I bring it up, considering he "clicks" with her? Also, she says she is a therapist because she has her degree but is not licensed. How do I express my concerns without disrespecting his decision to see her? This is sooooo tough.
