Good morning 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.

Ahhh, this is a tough one and one I've personally struggled with as well. I would love to provide you with some very clear ideas of what to say but it would be helpful for me to know what type of behavior you are coming in contact with.... Can you please provide this?

Thank you so much. I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm regards,

Therapist Leslie

Hello, I'd like to help you with your question.

Can you explain in more detail what kind of behavior you are asking about and what has been tried so far with the family member to help them recognize what they are doing?

Thank you!

Mary Ann
