Big hugs. I'm sorry.<br><br>
We see Scott Johnston, and really like him. He is on Providence's east side. 401-831-6380. He's really helped us work through some communication issues, parenting issues, old baggage issues, etc.<br><br>
Good luck!

We saw someone at Gershon Psychological Associates. They have offices in Warwick (near malls) and East Side. 401-349-3131. I liked how I met with the owner of the practice, and he matched us up to someone he thought would fit our personalities & needs the best. Good luck!

Thanks ladies for all the recommendations! We did see someone who I would say seemed awesome but my husband was NOT at all open to the idea once we got in the door. He told the councilor that "he only came because I asked him to and their was no marriage to work on". So I would say we are done since he is determined to do what he wants no matter what. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bawling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bawl">

I believe that we could have an amazing live together everything that he has issues with is totally fixable on both parties espeically since we are still friends and can have a ton of fun togther doing almost anything but at this point he does not want to try, no matter what I say or do he says it does not matter, "he wants to take care of himself right now and my face will never hurt him again but he accepts the fact that in relationships people get hurt so someone else can hurt him but just not me ever again!" I think he is a bit off his rocker right now but what can I really do? He has all the control since he just drew the line in the sand and said that was it and he is not willing to talk about it. I have been trying for the past 7weeks to no avail. Nothing gets threw since he will not let anything threw. I am so sad, mad you name it all at the same time. I thought he was my family. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Do you speak of the PDV playgroup? That is something I though I would make the treck for (its about 45mins or so from my house) but I am thinking I would like to live in PVD so making more friends in the area would be great! I'll Check in on the PDV playgroup thread.<br>
THanks for the support!<br>
Andrea
