Affordable Quality Orthodox Therapists--Myth or Reality?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
October 23rd, 2020
Dear Therapist: I have a question which I hope you can help me with:   I'm looking for a new therapist, one that is in-network and takes my insurance. I'm doing a ton of research, calling up therapists, clinics etc...but I keep bumping into the money issue. I just hung up with yet another therapist that didn't work out, and I'm honestly feeling helpless, hopeless and demoralized. Is this how the system is g …

Is My Husband COVID-Phobic?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
October 23rd, 2020
Dear Therapist: My husband has been taking COVID very seriously. Although he is young and has no health conditions, he basically isolated completely for the first few months of the pandemic. He spends a lot of time online "researching" the illness and spends a lot of time discussing and analyzing it. At the end of the summer, when we had gone so long without seeing any serious illness, he started relaxing a little and going out (with a mask). He …

Headaches--Physical or Psychological?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
October 23rd, 2020
Dear Therapist: I am writing to ask for some clarification as to the extent that stress or other psychological issues can cause physical problems. Basically, I have not been feeling well for a while, mostly with very bad headaches. I have been to a doctor and a specialist who both are saying that there is nothing they can see that is wrong and it must be that I am stressed out. They suggested I go to counseling which I am looking into. I guess my …

Classroom Orphans
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
October 23rd, 2020
Dear Therapist: As a 3rd grade rebbe [Hebrew teacher] sometimes I have children in my class who have lost a parent...I wonder if in such cases I should avoid using the word totty [daddy] or mommy during class to avoid hurting the child. Is this something that is helpful or perhaps avoiding it is just something that is not realistic and unfortunately it is something they will live with all their lives?    Respons …

Who is a Narcissist?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
October 23rd, 2020
Dear Therapist: I find the letters and responses to the Couch very informative. Would it be possible for the panelists to share advice on how to detect narcissistic behaviors? I had an awful experience with a narcissistic individual and tried so hard to make it work. However, if I would have been aware of the classic signs of narcissists, I would have realized early on that it would not work. Narcissists are very charismatic people that are  …

Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
October 23rd, 2020
Dear Therapist: I am considering hiring a therapist for work purposes. I...don't feel the need for therapy in my personal life but someone suggested seeing a therapist to help me/coach me in my management position. Basically, even if I am doing well can this help me perform even better? Perhaps it would be a good idea for our bottom line if we hired someone for the company to motivate employees and help manage workplace issues. What can/should a …

Summer to School COVID Transition
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
October 23rd, 2020
Dear Therapist: As the school year hopefully begins, I am somewhat concerned about my elementary school children who have not been on a regular structure/schedule since Purim. I wonder if there is any advice you can give us on how to manage the transition back to normalcy? Or maybe it's nothing and the kids will bounce right back into it? Also, are there any signs we should look out for that would indicate an issue?   Response: I&r …

Should My Daughter Pay for Her Therapy?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
August 13th, 2020
Dear Therapist: A year ago, my 20-year-old daughter told me she wants to speak to psychologist because she’s feeling anxiety. She insisted on speaking only to the top and most expensive ones....We don’t have an extra dollar but I don’t let money get in the way of necessities and over the past year and a half shelled out over 10 grand. My daughter never had any trauma and she doesn’t discuss her problems with me. The psycho …
