Joslyn way cool I am happy for you.....As to your T...I think she can be objective and has had a lot of training so yes I think she can be very effective in helping. I DO understand why you would wonder though. I do not have a deep wound but I can clean and stitch you up in a heartbeat if you had one...it's all a case of training. Still YOU know her better and as a person. Enjoy the new relationship

> I am starting a new relationship and am so clueless about this, didn't have good role models. So far, this seems like a relatively normal relationship compared to my others, and this person does not have any inner demons & is not a player. So I want to give this an honest try.
>
> Of course this is something I discuss in therapy. But my therapist is divorced, has been for some time, and doesn't seem interested in dating again. I guess she is close to 60.
>
> My question is, can someone who has been divorced for years and years really be able to guide me in a relationship? I sometimes wish I had a therapist who was happily married. It would make me feel more secure about discussing relationships.
>
> What do others think about this? My therapist does have a lot of knowledge about family dynamics, depression, communicating, etc., but the fact is, her marriage ended and she has not been in one for years. I want to get married one day to a nice man and stay married.
>
> Can she help me anyway? Sometimes I wonder...
