mental health professional advice
    #4022189 - 04/06/05 05:57 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I'm won't get into all the details but I need to find a shrink, and would like to see someone who understands the lifestyle and is not going to judge.

So now I'm asking the group, I know how you find a good lawyer for the culture, but how do I find a good shrink?

DC area if anyone can help pm me... or if there is a good link please post it.

TIA

DP

If I were you, I'd make a contract and require the shrink to read it before you start with him/her. Write a list concerning the topics that matter to you (like the "lifestyle"), and then say, "before we begin, I need to know that you are not going to condemn, patronize or medicate me unjustly because of my lifestyle choices."

Make sure the shrink gives you a straight answer.

And always remember that when it comes to meds and shrinks, you are the one in charge.

I couldn't agree more. You may have to shop around for a bit, but try to find one that you trust and you feel you can confide in....

Thanks for the link. They didn't have anyone close posted so I sent them a email. Hopefully They will have a name or two for me.
