don't you answer my email for advice?
I wish I could answer
each and every email I get. Unfortunately, time and energy does not
permit. I do read each and every email I get, if that helps.
What if I
really, really want your advice?
You can a
phone consult, or you can ask your question on
the "Ask Doc Board". Both services are for a fee. Info here.
Why can't you
refer me to an abuse therapist?
I'm not a database. Best bet: Call your police or domestic
violence center for a referral.
Why don't you
answer my email asking for specific reading?
All the reading I recommend is
posted throughout the site, including on the Book
Shelf. I am constantly adding to and updating that page.
Why don't you
answer my email asking for help writing a paper or project?
I did my work. Your turn to do
yours...unless you want to pay consultations fees @ $165 per hour.
Do you do
I do phone and Skype consultations.
A consultation is different from "therapy" in that it
is professional feedback, as opposed to an ongoing therapeutic process.
Not until the laws are clearer for psychologists.
The internet is rapidly forcing
changes in medical and behavioral care. >
What is the
difference between the advice you give and therapy?
The advice is the same; the context
is different. Therapy is an ongoing process.
What about my
privacy concerns regarding anything on this site?
All information is
posted on the privacy page.
But, the site is
so BIG? How can I find what I'm looking for if you won't help?
There is plenty of help! Look
at the contents page. You
can search the site - or the internet! Also, your peers can probably
answer most of your questions. Join The CatBox board. The posters on this site are a wonderfully kind, knowledgeable,
and helpful bunch.
Hope this was helpful! Many thanks! -Dr. Irene
