Young Sibling Rivalry
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
August 9th, 2018
Dear Therapist: Thank you for this forum. Our oldest, a boy of 6, thinks that he is in charge of everything. He is in charge of every game, every digging session, and every clean-up job. He will constantly dominate every interaction with his younger siblings (boy 4 & girl 2) and attempts to control them. If his commands are not adhered to, he will yell and threaten etc. He cannot tolerate his younger brother superseding him in any way: "you a …

You Need to be in Therapy FOREVER!
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
August 13th, 2020
Dear Therapist: I have gone through a lot the past few months and after reading this column thought that it would be a good idea to see a therapist to help me deal with my issues. I thought it would be a simple process but when I contacted a respected local therapist, she told me that I would need to see her twice a week and she also recommended that my family go through a regimen of weekly therapy sessions. That’s quite a lot, not to menti …

Wrong Therapist?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
September 26th, 2019
Dear Therapist: We recently acceded to our daughter’s request to begin seeing a psychologist weekly. This is related to some eating disorder and body image issues. Without going into the specifics we were given a bad recommendation by a friend as to which psychologist to send to. This psychologist clearly did not share our values and we believed she would not be appropriate for our impressionable teenage daughter. So we switched her to a di …

Will My Therapist Report Me?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
June 11th, 2018
Dear Therapist: There is a specific issue that I have been holding in for a long time. I understand that it is something that is very serious and needs to be discussed with a therapist. The issue is that it is a very serious thing that I am worried will need to be brought to the attention of the authorities. This is something I don’t want to happen. So, I am stuck, not getting the help that I need. Obviously, I can’t be specific …

Will I Always Have Anxiety?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
February 7th, 2019
Dear Therapist: I am 46 and have been living with anxiety my entire life. Every few years I go back to therapy for a while until I start feeling better. Then I stop with my therapist and it gets me through a year or two then it gets bad again and I wind up back in therapy again. I tried medication for a while a few years back but the side effects weren't really worth it. I have done 2 rounds of CBT where I analyzed my thinking patterns and how th …

Why is Camp Scaring My Child?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
September 26th, 2019
Dear Therapist: What is it with camps scaring the wits out of kids. How come all the scary plays, Holocaust stories, and color war breakouts. Granted my kids are a bit sensitive but do I need to have them come home from day camp all terrorized? Are these things appropriate? Are my kids just wimps? Can these types of things negatively impact kids?   Response:              & …

Why Doesn't My Daughter Want to go to Camp?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
May 19th, 2021
Dear Therapist: My 13-year-old daughter is an intense child. She puts a lot of pressure of herself academically and school is a big deal for her. All of her friends are going to (overnight) camp this summer and initially she had us register her as well. She is now insisting that she wants to stay home for the summer and "relax." She says she works hard all year, and she just wants a chance to have nothing to do. It is interesting that it doe …

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  …

Where Is My Son's Anger Coming From?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
December 26th, 2019
Dear Therapist: Hi. We'd like your guidance regarding a challenging aspect of our 15 year old son. Our son...[is]...intelligent, articulate, and good-looking. He's musical, writes incredible stories and has a sense of humor. The challenge: he doesn't know how to properly regulate frustration/unmet expectations/dealing with things he disagrees with. When he gets upset, he has no control over what he says. If something ticks him off, he'll rant and …

What is Happiness?
Author: Yehuda Lieberman, LCSW-R, QCSW, DCSW
March 27th, 2019
Dear Therapist: I wonder if the esteemed panel can elaborate a bit on "happiness." There is so much attention today being paid to being happy. It is even enshrined in the declaration of independence as a right. I sometimes wonder if the fact that people chase happiness, which can be so elusive, actually makes them more miserable. As therapists...I was hoping you could share your thoughts on happiness...and the path towards it.   Response: Ha …
