That's OK to a point, but a good T can be more objective. Sometimes our friends and loved ones can't be objective and it can really cloud their perspective. Relatives are not objective either, and in the case of a lot of people here, are not a good source of feedback/comfort, etc. A good, well-trained, mentally fit T can be an asset. The key is finding a competent T. Dr's are too darn busy, and can't address a lot of serious problems in the space of their 15-minute office visits, and many of them have little or no training in active listening and other skills that could help. Their main goal is to treat a physical ailment and move on. A good doc, however, will refer a patient to a T if they feel the patient would benefit. Doesn't happen too often, though.

I've lost a lot of respect for the counseling/psychology profession, but there are good T's out there that can of huge benefit to people who may not have the options you suggested.

I'm definitely not religious, so a clery member/rabbi would be pretty far out of the question for me and others like myself who are not religious or even spiritual.
