Hi. If anyone recently applied for a Psychotherapist help, could you recommend one?

We seriously and quite urgently need a consultation of a transcultural family specialist, who does speak fluent English or German.

My husband is Japanese in fact, and his Russian is at a basic level. We don't hope for a Japanese specialist, but at least some communication is necessary for this kind of therapy :(

Is it really so that a Russian wife would drive her husband insane just in a few months?
:confused:

Have you tried AMC or EMC? Just call the Western medical centers.

If the wife driving the husband insane, perhaps they are not meant to be together... Why force youself to stay with a person who is different that you don't understand him or her? One of them will have to change a great deal, and there is pretty much a zero possibility of that.

We've been together 4 years already.Should mean something.
Living with a partner after long years of solitude is always a big deal of challenge. Don't hurry with your prognosis,pls
AMC or EMC is not suitable , we need a private practitioner for some reason.

Check out the Moscow Times classifieds . They have a section for that. Sometimes they have a few phone numbers. Alternatively you can place an ad there. Good luck!

If you're looking for a therapist after four years (not a few months as you originally posted - this change alone is weird) of living together, it means only one thing - a waste of time.

We moved in the same apt a few months ago, that's what it is.
Both not 18 y.o., we are going through an adaptation period when one has to see the partner much longer than used to.

You should know this if ever been married.
If people are going to find a solution of the problem it is never a waste of time, though poking one's nose in the subject of no concern, that's the real waste of everyone's time!

Attencio, you have an extremely healthy and good attitude towards your relationship. Don't listen to people that are trying to dicourage you from saving your relationship or saying that you are nuts. I don't know if you guys are married or just living together, but relationship in marriage will work right. Living together outside of marriage will not be blessed by God wheither you believe in Him or not.
The multicultural marriages/relationships DO work if both or even one side is willing to adapt and it sounds like you do. Keep on striving and don't give up. People from Japan has a very strong cultural background and you need lots of patience, love and willinngless to adapt.
I say this from my personal experience from many years :).

Crow,
it's a funny thing but the fact of marriage itself has trigged the variety of intolerance problems:)
Blessed are those who in their naive hope utter the word of commitment .And God be with them. Just in case the latter is not in a hurry to be at hand, doctor Kirillow will be there .

Thank you a lot for the support!
