Hi Mike,
Just got this note from you. Sorry again for the late response. I've been having some technical problems...Anyway, I'm really glad that you've started joint therapy--I assume it's with your daughter. I may be incorrect.

Anyway, if it's a competent therapist, you'll be in good hands even though it may take a while.

Be assured that the "negative talk" from your ex about you will almost assuredly backfire in the long run. In general, people want to think well of their parents--their parents are part of them. Kids have to discover their parents' strengths and weaknesses on their own and at their own pace. In most instances, if parent A denigrates parent B, it backfires on parent A.

Anyway, I wish you the best of luck on your journey. It sounds like you're on the right track.
