I had a great first appointment (after an initial fit call) with a new therapist. I thought things went well, and we were scheduled for a second appointment. However, she sent me an email the following day saying that, due to a conflict of interest that she ethically cannot share with me, we would not be a good clinical fit. This kind of feeds like a rug pull breakup and brings up awful feelings of abandonment. Now, I’m wracking my brain trying to figure out what conflict of interest there is….

What do you consider reasonable steps to maintain privilege? My wife made fun of me for locking my monitor and putting papers in drawers when my father in law and her came into the room today.

I have an employee who is very sick with COVID (on life support in the ICU). I would like to do something to support his wife; they have 2 young kids & she’s expecting; I’m sure the stress on her is exhausting. Any suggestions for what would be helpful and appreciated? This is more complicated because they were out of town & he was hospitalized out of state, so it is hard for us to get anything to them in person. Also, I’m concerned about his team members and would love ideas to support them

I have crazy working hours, I haven’t dated anyone for 6 years now. Didn’t find anyone right, or maybe didn’t have a lot of time to experiment. I think it’s the void of not having a constant with me. And I don’t know how to find one now! Everyone knows me as a cheerful person, but honestly I’m just a sad, depressed and a lonely person.
