Have you thought about counseling?  

How we think, affects how we feel, which influences what actions we take.  Counseling services can bring restoration toward making long-term changes. Through counseling, persons can explore what lies beneath the surface of outward symptoms.  Persons can identify their strengths while gathering new tools and insights which will help with moving toward a more confident balanced and meaningful life.
