Hi OP, I’ve been seeing a therapist for 2 years and other family members have often come up in my discussions for similar reasons. The advice I keep receiving from my therapist is that the more I tell them to see a therapist, the more they will run in the opposite direction. Instead of asking her to see a therapist, could you get on her good side first. May be really listen to how she feels, why this impacted her the way it did, how she see’s the firing. Once you connect, then I would gradually correct.

Thanks Mck1. This is helpful advice. What complicated everything is that my dad is suffering from stage 4 cancer so that would also be affecting as well. But I will try the approach you mentioned. And see how it goes. Any other tips anyone?
