THERAPY IN ANOTHER STATE
If you need counseling help but do not have great financial resources,
don't give up. You need to do some research. But, this is not a
time to look on the internet. The listings are not that helpful,
since many clinics don't have websites. Take out your yellow pages,
and look under SOCIAL AND HUMAN SERVICES. This is a list of mostly
nonprofit organizations. Look for a national organization called
Family Service of America , look for hospital clinics, and look
for community clinics. You can probably get low cost psychotherapy
If you have sexual problems which stem from your
early family life, a licensed therapist who is not a certified sex
therapist will be able to help you with psychotherapy for some time.
At the point at which you need help with sexual
dysfunction, it is best to get a specialist. It is more difficult
to find a certified sex therapist in a setting which offers therapy
inexpensively. But check, because some cities have hospitals with
sex therapy clinics.
