the first counselor my H got, i sincerely regretted. I wanted to call the guy up and give him a piece of my mind. but he did help my H in a lot of ways.
I have never found a counselor id stick with. but that doesnt mean they havent been helpful. all the counselors ive had just wanted me to talk. that's just enabling and festering in my opinion. i understand the importance of getting it out in the open, but that only helps to a point. I like a counselor that actually gives you something to do, something to learn and work on. i read a quote once that said, thought without work is insanity, and work without thought is stupidity. so there's a happy medium in there some where.
