Re: Need some Advice
I have a lot of experience with counseling and I don't really think there's any perfect answer. I've been to an amazing male counselor (as a hurting 23 year old female), a terrible male marriage counselor (as a married 35 year old), a terrible female marriage counselor/sex therapist (also age 35), an OK female individual counselor during that same time frame, but looking back, not so great.....A great female couples counselor (recently).....
I now see a great individual counselor, female, in solo practice. She's not even licensed, but she's my favorite so far. Why? Because she gives homework. Tangible exercises for me to do.
I don't like counselors who only listen. I have plenty of friends for that.
